  Make plans now to attend the
4th Annual Homecoming
29 April - 1 May, 2011
Homecoming Group 2010
  The turn-out for the inaugural Homecoming in 2008 was fabulous -- read all about it. The 2009 turn-out (pictured above) was great, too. This year's event will be even more fun and informative!

The planning committee has been hard at work ... to ensure this year's Homecoming will be a fun-filled weekend of friendship, fellowship and learning.

       Recovered from the 3rd Annual Winter Classic Junk Yard Tour this year, the members of the Old Dominion Stovebolt Society will be our hosts again this year.

       Bring your project and we'll help! Always have lots of hands-on work to do with plenty of your online friends -- from wheel upgrades to simply experiencing what it's like to drive a 6-71 Detroit diesel-powered Big Rig. And don't forget the annual "Mike Roache Challenge" where we'll make yet another attempt to set a new world's record for fastest distributor change out and set up -- big fun for all!!
