Just posting this as a reminder note to get this info out to our MBA folks!
From a recent call on the phone with Don (2-Ton) who was somewhere in Tennessee, he and wife Vicki were on their way to the Southern Bolter's 3rd Annual Southern Bolter's Jamboree
and Smokey Mountain Nationals AD truck Show in Townsend, TN that happened Friday and Saturday, 2-3 June 2023.
Per info from Don, after they finish up with the Southern Bolters events Tim from "Down Under"
will be flying in to Columbia, MO early this week and will be touring a bunch of scenic Missouri locales with Don. Don mentioned they plan on trying to meet up with as many fellow Bolters as possible that maybe able to break away to meet up.
Don said they have lots of stops planned, but wanted me to announce they have set aside time for a gathering of any MBA Bolter's that may be able to attend a "Mini-Meet
" at KC Mongo's Shop on Friday, 9 June 2023. Steve (KC Mongo) has graciously offered to provide his shop and space and I want to give a big "Thank You"
as always for his generosity. The address for KC Mongo's Shop is:
800 S. Delaware St.
Independence, MO 64050
Steve has plenty of parking space available and anyone that can is encouraged to bring their Stovebolt to show off.
A start time hasn't yet been decided on, but will probably be around mid-morning (more to come as we get that pinned down). As of now, the plan is mostly just to do a meet and greet/gab session with Tim in the AM, hit a local BBQ place (TBD) for lunch and then return to Mongo's for more gabbing and sharing as folks can. No further details yet, but as they become available, we will get them posted here for folks to know.
Please consider this an INVITATION
to any Bolter that may be able to attend offered here with the only order of business to just have a great time. Appreciate if anyone planning on attending could reply back in here so we can try to get a guestimate of how many may be there (helps to plan/decide where to try and get lunch).
More info to come as we get responses and more details! Very much looking forward to giving Tim a Big Stovebolt Welcome
