TOURS - If you missed any of the last tours, you missed out! We got to see many great rigs & obscure museums. Try to make the next one.
NEED HELP WITH YOUR RIG? Never pumped? Don't have any hose or nozzles? Bring your rig to one of our events and we'll help you. There are lots of members who would be happy to show you the basics of operating your rig. Someone can probably even loan you some hose and equipment for the day. Even if you just want to park and watch -- that's great too. Don't be shy, come on out!
