Special thanks to Two Brothers for providing the beer for the Friday party.  http://twobrothersbrewing.com/ 

Thursday, October 18th from 10am-4pm

  • If you are more about having access to the machines and parts and don't like crowds, this is probably the day for you to attend. We expect this to be a low key, mellow day.

Friday, October 19th from noon-6pm

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR TICKET WITH YOU TO ENTER THE EVENT ON FRIDAY!

This is the day we bring the party!
This will be a charity event with all entry fees being donated to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
