Default 1/14/06 - CT/NY Audi Group Winter Gathering - EPL, Stratford, CT (Updated info - Pizza!)

The CT/NY Audi Group will have a Winter Gathering this Saturday, January 14th in Stratford, CT.

The event will take place at European Performance Labs, at their new location in Stratford, CT, easily accessible off of I-95.

The owner, Tony Chick, has been custom tuning Volkswagens and Audis for many years now. He has become quite popular with his custom tuning of setups which fall outside of the pre-packaged tuner kits. Two and a half years ago, Tony took 1st place in the first "European Car 1.8T Challenge" when tuning his own car. Since then, he has expanded his knowledge, software tools, and electronic hardware tools. He recently purchased a Mustang AWD-500-SE all-wheel-drive Dyno and outgrew his previous shop location.

Jan 14th will be a casual day, with a general Meet and Greet of enthusiasts. EPL will provide Pizza, refreshments, Q&A on custom chip tuning and hands-on demonstration of how a load bearing dyno functions.

There will also be a raffle for a 3-pull dyno session. The raffle will take place around Noon for those present.

WHEN: Saturday, Jan 14th. 10AM-3PM
WHERE: 726 Woodend Rd, Stratford, CT

New: Pizza served around Noon! Mmmmmmmmmm!

Details will be updated on our site, and posted to the Audi forums. I will also put all updates into one post on the AW Events forums, so you can bookmark that if you desire. Here's a link to that post:

Hope to see many of you after the Holidays.
