Well, just got back home from the 1st CT Meet and Greet and while I will issue some sort of party minutes, I guess the first thing I need to say is that I am absolutely overwhelmed with the friendliness and graciousness of all that attended. Thanks to Blackrock and EasyRay (our CT storyteller) who will be posting pictures of the party, these will include Jimd's PatriotCoal.net's boiler that was up and running with heat to warm us in a cold but sunny parking lot.

It went well Ugly, 5 gold stars. I was impressed with Jim's boiler, those dual stokers give you added reliability. Very reasonable cost too. I notice when I left that there wasn't much snow in the lot where he was parked. :)
Good food, great bunch of guys. When is the next one?

RE: Jim's website as previously noted, his son in-law Ray said that new info will be posted in 1-2 weeks on his boiler.

The squirrel has been living in a cabin in Bolton, CT for the last couple years, I asked him to come with me for our special event. Squirrels are not endangered species as farrrr as I knowwwww :woot:

EASYRAY, NICE PICS!!!!!! I'm sure Blackrock will post a few as well....

I'm of some opinion Jim has a significant background in heating:

Hope he did not mind me pulling this up... Google (Jim plummer Taunton MA).....BLAH! (I'm assuming it IS him)

A very humble gentlemen I might add.....
