Welcome! The event on Nov 12th is a great chance to meet people and find out more about the club, if you're able to attend. This club is smaller group of folks that are friendly and helpful. If you need something or have questions, ask away!
Welcome and thanks for the intro. Sounds like you are no stranger to the joys and frustrations that come with this hobby.
Looking forward to seeing your build thread, at some point. You could post a couple photos in the meantime.
