Mitch’s tech session


Mitch VanNordstrand is again opening his garage to CNY members so that we all have a place to go and fantasize about what we can do when the snow disappears and the salt gets washed away.
Mitch has a large, heated work shop complete with a lift, wash bay and paint booth with lots of room for us to hang out. Bring a folding chair if you want to make yourself comfortable!

Beth and Mitch have stocked up on some Brats and German sides from their favorite German Butcher, Mitch has requested a cash donation to be made to their local Food Bank. BYOB!
Come join us for what promises to be a very informative and fun day!! Mitch always has some great cars in his garage for us to look at! Please RSVP to Mitch so he knows how many people are coming.
