Save our Spridgets
November 23-24, 2007 - 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Oshkosh, Wisconsin area

SOS is a Midwest gathering, standing for Save our Spridgets. It was inspired by the Organization of Spridget Handymen in Transit (OSHIT) out east. This is our 5th or 6th year of SOS. It takes place each year on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. Generally, we'll have 10 to 20 folks here each day, and 20+ watching the event worldwide on the Yahoo Messenger web cam broadcast. The broadcast is set up so folks watching can ask questions in real time that we can hear and respond to, or type their questions or comments in the forum.
Generally, we get started around 10AM and work 'til around 4PM. Since we'll have at least 3 or 4 simultaneous projects, you can jump in on whatever interests you. If you're coming to learn, don't be shy. If you're coming just to hang out, that is absolutely OK too. You need not be an expert at anything to attend, just enjoy people or cars, or both. If you intend to get dirty, please make sure to bring a change of clothes, as we're going out for dinner Friday night. We'll be serving lunch both Fri. & Sat. If you'd like to bring something to serve, please let me know in advance. For those of you that can't attend, we do accept food contributions, if you can safely ship them in a manner that won't kill us. In the past, folks have sent clams, scrapple, calamari, brats, etc. We haven't died yet.
You need not have mechanical ability to attend. You can just watch, eat, and drink if you'd like. Dream Farm is located about an hour north of Milwaukee, between Fond du Lac and Oshkosh. We do have the ability to put some folks up here, whether it be in the house, in the shop, or in the camper for those that need a place to stay. There are also many hotel choices on either side of us, but reservations should be booked sooner than later on a holiday weekend. Once again, we'll broadcast the event via Yahoo Messenger, video and audio, with real-time ability to ask questions of the participants from viewers around the world. Get your Yahoo ID and download Yahoo Messenger from Add to your friends list.
