Points East Diesel Workshops, 2018

Just a note to let you know that the diesel engine workshop on Saturday met my needs very well. Bob Gerwig is an excellent teacher who fully engaged with all of us and conveyed his extensive knowledge of the subject in ways that were intelligible both to neophytes and to those with a fair amount of diesel-engine experience. I think I can speak for everyone in the class when I say that it was a day well spent. Thanks to Points East, to Brewer, and of course to Bob.
