Colorado Owners Mini-Meet
« on: February 05, 2012, 05:26:19 PM »
Eaglefreek, Strike Eagle and I met up at the Tri-States Swap Meet in Denver today.  After wandering around for about an hour we made our way to Gronk's booth, where he reported he had done a brisk business yesterday selling carbs and his other cool poducts.  I have one of his carbs but had never met him before.  Not only is he a nice guy, but he must know more about carbs than anyone else on earth.  He talked to us for a long time, answering all of our questions.  Don't hesitate to buy one of his carbs or ask him any questions - he'll have the answer for you.

Eaglefreek is also a cool dude and knows his stuff.  I think I heard him say he would be back at the swap meet next year with his custom made Eagle front bumpers complete with winches.  But then again maybe I heard wrong...

Strike Eagle is one of the friendliest guys around and he was on a quest for knowledge today.  He was swapping info with all of the transmission guys today.

The Mini-Meet would have been even bigger as Shanebo and Maddog were supposed to come up from Colorado Springs.  I think this weekend's snow storm put a damper on their trip and they weren't able to make it.

It was good to get together with these folks and it just reinforced that Eagle owners are a great bunch!

Did you say that a snow storm prevented them from coming?
I thought they drove Eagles.
 Pics?
The blizzard goes on but still they must fly.

All,  just made it back to the Springs from the meet.  It was great to meet some Nesters.

Did someone mention something about a series of cruises comming up this summer???  Thought someone mentioned something about them. 

Back to the shop to fill some orders :)

Well, you were in Colorado, and you kinda sorta own a car in Colorado, so I thought it was close enough....

I must have missed that (all 250 times   :rotfl:).  Where can I get some information about those cruises?
