Here are links to the last two Newsletters and a Map of how to get to the clinic for those interested. This year the topic is babbitt and valve stems. The cut-a-way Ford chassis from the two eastern clubs will be there also.

Stan, I got your story in the Jan newsletter-take a look. The fee for the clinic is $5.00, but between the coffee and donuts and the door prizes you should leave with more than you came with. Any questions contact me or post here. Thanks Jerry
Finalized the door prizes and donuts today. Don't forget the dinner on Friday night.
Found out today that the Tulsa boys are coming this year. If your just passing thru on Friday have dinner with us. Jerry
Well we had a good turnout, Had almost fifty stay( most of the spouses leave and go shopping and have a nice sit down lunch )for the "clinic". Got this e-mail from Mike Bender this morning, Thanks Mike.
Many thanks are given to the Sunflower State Crankers for hosting the Winter Clinic. This event is something I always look forward to. The fellowship and information shared is priceless. With the facilities that are available for your use and the format of event, this should be a must attend for anyone within a reasonable drive. Well worth the time and expense. Please forward my thanks to those that so work hard each year to put the programs together.
It was very enjoyable to see all of the vintage line boring equipment, and to have people that really care about our hobby willing to share with others that knowledge.

I'll try and get a few photo's up later today after I get them out of my camera, of course there were plenty of cameras there yesterday, so if a fellow attendee beat's me to it i'm ok with that.
I second what Mike said. No matter how well written instructions and descriptions are, being there and actually seeing how something is done while you watch can't be beat. I started out at six in the morning and didn't get home until nine last night, and it was time well spent.
Here are just a few...
