Shay Meetings

Many members like to participate in Shay meetings.  There is always a National meeting and usually several regional meetings.  Regional meetings are organized by volunteers around the country.  Anyone can organize a regional meeting.  At the meetings, most members bring their Shay but that is not required.  You can fit in and have a good time without the Shay.  The host will set up prearranged local attractions such as museums, plant tours, parks, restaurants, etc.  We drive our Shays around to the local attractions, eat out and talk a lot.  We meet people we have communicated with on the forum.  We help each other and learn from each other.  If your Shay breaks down you will have a bunch of members fixing it before you know what happened.  Look at the meetings pages and check out the future meetings and look over the past meeting history.
