Anyone from the above mentioned areas interested in getting together maybe once a month at a bar/coffee shop to shoot the sh%$ about whatever? It would be nice to get to know some of the local screen names that we all see from time to time. If you're interested reply with a favorite location and proposed time. We'll tally up the votes and make a decision from there.

Oh yeah, just so the folks in Madison don't think they are the only ones who get to have a local club name [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img], maybe we should take nominations for a group name.

I'll get the ball rolling:

Roman's Pub
One Friday Night per month

I would like to know when there might be a GTG in the Chicagoland area sometime this summer(or somewhere close ~100 miles). I specifically will need the TB changed in the next 10K miles and possibly the shocks. I would like to learn how to do it myself, but I don't feel I have the time to gather all the tools and knowhow.

Where is Drivbywire? (I know he moved).

Thanks,
Simon

This Friday night? On Good Friday? When Christ died on the cross being talked about in majority of the churches.

I won't be coming down for Easter either as we have a carpet installment happening this Saturday. But if you guys ever plan something that I could meet up if I am ever in town for a TB change. I will be down early next month for a number of changes. Maybe more if Harv gets his issue resolved as I know I have 3 to replace for sure.

Pete is in Oregon now.

Sorry deafbug, I should have been more clear, I meant Friday nights in general, not this Friday [img]/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img](original post modified to reflect this). I do plan on being in church that night.

I'd be interested in a GTG with fellow WI/IL TDIers. This Friday is booked, but others seem to be pretty free at the moment.

Waukesha Here.

I'm open for any time or place in the Milwaukee/Chicago area.

My Jetta doesn't need any maintainance at this time but I'd like to assist/watch/learn. I have a pretty good collection of tools (mainly from working on our Mustang). I'm pretty good with pushrod gas engines but still learning about overhead cams, timing belts (used to chains or gear drives), and especially diesels.

Just as a point of clarification, I was mainly thinking a non-greasy gathering of TDI folks when I first posted. Just a chance to sit around and drink some beers (or coffee depending on the mood of the day) and get to know each other without working on cars (although I don't think anyone will turn down a request from someone needing some car help). That's all for now, hope to hear from a lot of you soon. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

It be nice to meet some people instead of working on timing belts or whatnot. I don't get that opportunity often. Only one GTG when I attended was all TDI heater installs and no timing belts to do. So that was nice to meet people and get to know them. At the non-greasy meeting, some of us can make arrangements for greasy work. Of course, that is if I am in town.

Non Greasy is fine with me also. Any day of the week is good, I work 24hrs shifts on a rotating schedule (Fire Dept) but can get off with enough notice.

sounds great but friday afternoon is BAD in general trying to get out of chicago metro area.

i would suggest a weeknight like the third thursday or something like that.

i would also suggest some where close to the highway like the the brat stop, The Brat Stop or something right off the highway.

ggergg,

I will be there!!! BratStop is fine! Someone needs to pick a day.

Anyone of you guys from Milwaukee have a VAGCOM? My CEL is burning again... I'm guessing another glowplug - but I wanted to check it out before the next GTG!

Anyone wanna pick a day? Brat Stop is fine with me.

My son and I should be running our mustang at Great Lakes Dragaway a few times this spring. It will be a "test and tune" but it's still fun to watch the variety of cars running the 1/4 mile. In fact, if anyone wants to run their car just for fun, meet up with us and we'll help you get started. It's a blast!

I too would be interested.
I'm in the East Troy WI area.
Are you thinking somewhere in between CHI town and Brew City?
I will let others know who also are from the area in case they haven't seen the posting.

Thank you, that would be great! [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Yeah, somewhere in between Mil and Chi would probably be the best location to attract the greatest number of people. As soon as we get enough interest we will set a date, time and location. Keep spreading the word!
