Do-It-Yourself Session at Annapolis Volvo

  • Apr 13, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • Annapolis Volvo

The Washington Volvo Club (WVC) continues the 2013 DIY series with a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technical session at Annapolis Volvo in Annapolis, MD from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Saturday, April 13, 2013. Their location is 333 Buschs Frontage Rd (Route 50 East towards Bay Bridge, take exit 29A: Buschs Frontage Rd/MD-179, St. Margaret’s Road), Annapolis, MD 21409.

Annapolis Volvo (AV) has Saturday service for their customers, and therefore WVC will have the use of a limited number of of their lifts. We hope to attract a good group who will accomplish normal maintenance tasks. The AV Service Manager will be on hand to answer our questions and give us guidance as we work on our own Volvos with our own tools. The technicians are NOT there to fix your car. They offer guidance only.

AV’s parts department will be open during the DIY session, and WVC requires you to use it for the parts you need during the session. Remember that AV grants a generous discount on genuine Volvo parts to all WVC members showing a current membership card. It’s a good idea to contact their parts department at least a week in advance of the DIY session, to ensure that they’ll have all the parts you’ll need, and/or to allow for any parts that have to be special ordered to be delivered in time for the DIY.

This DIY is not intended for major repairs that cannot be completed within the allocated time period. All participants in this event must bring their own tools, and do their own work. We encourage our Members who are not yet on the lifts to help out when an extra pair of hands is needed, and we’re always happy to show newcomers the joys of simple maintenance activities.

Participation is on a strict pre-registration basis through WVC only; please do not contact Annapolis Volvo for this purpose. You may preregister by completing all items on the form in the files section and mailing it, along with a non-refundable fee of $20, or pay via PayPal using the RSVP link on this page. Please be advised that, even though we have posted this event on the Meetup calendar early, registrations for this DIY will not be accepted before March 13. The registration period is March 13 to April 6, with late registration on April 7 thru 12. If you pay by check, then it should be made payable to Washington Volvo Club. You will be notified of your registration status during the week before the DIY. (Please keep in mind that if you don't register online or postmark your payment by April 6, and if we can still accommodate you -- which we can't guarantee -- then the late registration fee is $35. Please also keep in mind that WVC doesn't allow walk-up registrations anymore, so be sure to get your registrations in as soon as possible!)

This is the first of two DIYs at Annapolis this year. Please think of your maintenance requirements, preregister early, and join us at this great location. WVC has set a limit on preregistration and we will be giving preference to those who get their registrations in early.

      Tom Conti is now the treasurer, contact him about your membership renewal. Glad you like the new design! We do plan to order shirts, I have sent the design to the company we use to make them.

      Hey Cam, great to hear from you! It would be better if you mailed in a check, go to the toolbar at the top of the Meetup page and pull down to "files." The PDF of the mail-in form is there, that has the address for sending the check.
