2018 Annual Pacific NW CLAP Mtg


Recommended Posts


The date has been set for our annual gathering. Saturday April 21st. 

NOTE! The location will be different. With mixed emotions, we have outgrown Nancy's Lake House and Bill's shop. Sadly there are a lot of memories there, but we are still keeping it in the family, as Eric Foley will be hosting us. This is a phenomenal venue, still in the same general area, closer to Puget Sound, the property has a pond, Car Barn with the Foley's Fire Engine and car collection, and a replica Fire house where the meeting will be held. No more cold, tight quarter shop. 

Address: 2825 Fishtrap Loop NE
Olympia, WA 98506

This is a free event to attend, for anyone to attend, the only investment is your time. We are soliciting ideas on subject matter. If you have something you want to know more about, let us know. 

The Friday afternoon and evening, Set Up party and Pizza Fest will be held on the 20th. Given the adjustment in meeting location, we are contemplating a different Pizza Fest venue. Mark your calendars now, more details will follow.

We are about as set as we can be for this weekend. Special thanks to Eric Foley and the new Firehouse. They have pushed to get things ready for us, and even in its somewhat incomplete state, the pictures look amazing. I cant wait to see it in person. I still contend that we have the best venue in the entire country for our Mini, and moving from the Lake House to the Sound House will not disappoint. Eric and his wife Jennifer are setting this up as a “Dinner Destination” venue. On hand is the fire engine and car collection of the Foley’s. There is only a handful of us who have seen the Car Barn in years past, and now you all will get a chance to see this. The Foley’s have been extremely gracious over the years with hosting this event with Brother Gary always assisting.


For those who have RSVP’d, thank you. It is still not too late to decide to come. Special thanks to those presenting our agenda this year:


Lowell Fuher – Group Roundtable Discussion – Attention to Details

Jay Danielson – Cheap E131 Wireless

Pete Peters – AFCI vs GFCI Avoiding December Meltdowns

Kevin Thomas & Darren Huffty – LOR S5

Pete Peters - Power Injection

Steve Garrett – E131 Wireless Update


Our Sponsors do an amazing job supporting us. Please support them, and when you interact with them, thank them for taking the time to send us goodies as giveaways.
