Expanded Meet Activities. If you want to come earlier or stay later and need to work on your scooter you are welcome. Tommy has a general good stock of new and used Parts and this would be a good opportunity to pick up what you need and install at the same time. Just order what you need from Tommy several weeks in advance and let me know when you want to come. It will also be a great time to do some trading or selling. If it rains we will have plenty to get us involved.
