Motor Rebuilding class

Tony,
If your looking for a place to hold the class ,The Boyertown auto museum would rent us the place for 3 days to put on an Air-cooled BMW boxer motorcycle Super tech classes for years. They could comfortably handle 40 50 participants in three different classrooms.
If this is of interest, it Might be worth a look to host your class at the museum.
Their set up would also probably allow for spinning up an engine if need be.

The Motel 6 and Comfort Inn housed out-of-town guests, and there is also a great unstuffy Contry club restaurant/ called Lamasarea for a Saturday night Banquet, or a super mexican place close by as well.
The Simone Auto museum in Philly by the airport may also be an option.

FYI
Bruce

Tony, I'll have to let you know. It will depend on when I can coordinate some business in the US at the same time. I will definately be over in late August though (after the 20th) so depending on your schedule maybe that could work.

In any case, I'll definitely be in the class at some point!

Seeking a suitable and affordable venue....

Bruce,

I will call them tomorrow and make an inquiry. As of today, we would need four (4) consecutive days (April 12-13 & 14-15). I am also checking with the local community centers around the area. Thanks for the suggestion.

Tony

Al,

I am still negotiating for a suitable conference room to make this venture a reality. Hoping that I could overcome this problem in a day or two. I like to extend an invitation to you but I can not afford to cover your plane fare to Philadelphia. You would be an ideal guest speaker. You were one of the guys who gave me encouragement when I in trouble getting the engine to run. Thanks.

Tony

This is a great initiative, well done Tony!

I will be in Portland Maine for business the week of June 11, if by any chance you have a session the week-end before or the week-end after, I would be very interested in joining!

Any specific prerequisites?

Thx,
Fabrice

Kind Regards,

Update.......

Still trying to finalize the contract for the venue. I have been looking at meeting rooms with 12 seats. The meeting room rental is between $300 to $400 a day. Even inquired with the local community centers, firehouses, churches, etc. nobody could guarantee the availability of the facility for the dates we need. Except the local hotels with private meeting rooms. Right now, I have two good prospects for the venue. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Session 0: April 5-6
This would be the maiden seminar/class for 4 or 5 participants only. Preferably local guys. I will need volunteers from the session I participants which I will contact once the venue is finalized.

Session I: April 12-13 (Thurs. & Fri.)..........probably 10 participants only.

Session II: April 14-15 (Sat. & Sun)...........probably 10 participants only.


Session III: April 26-27 (Thurs. & Fri.)

Session IV: April 28-29 (Sat. & Sun).

Summer classes: June and July (dates to be determined later).

Note:
All participants are required to sign a waiver which is being prepared by a professional with a doctorate degree for FREE. She charges $500 per hour of her time (donating it) to save me for any liability in case someone gets injured during the course. A copy will be sent to each participant.

Any questions, suggestions, or concern please let me know. Thanks.

Tony

I would be in for this as well. Coming up from Louisville and pretty much any of the dates would work for me, just whenever there's a spot.

Tony,
If you decide to video this class, I can make DVD copies for anyone that is interested. I have a DVD duplication business ( Video Operations Myrtle Beach, SC ) and can turn out as many copies as you may need. I have been transferring video ( VHS, Beta, 8mm, Mini DV, etc ) since the 80's. I think what you are doing with this class is much needed and though it will probably be more work than you ever envisioned, I know everyone on the forum applauds your effort. Phil

I think that's a great idea, however to run a class and also shoot quality video is adding stress to what should be a very involved process geared to those attending the classes.

A video should be independent, allowing the verbal commentary to be edited, precise and coincide with the video images. To do this real time would probably be detrimental to both the video content and the class content.

Divide and conquer!

BTW Tony, the more I think of this the more excited I get of the opportunity you're giving us. Thank you
