This is an impromptu event - come on up to Norton Sales!  We did this
as a Dorkbot excursion in May 2007, and was a lot of fun.  Here are
some pics of the last event:

Here's some info on Norton Sales:

"Norton Sales has been a leading supplier of Aerospace and Industrial
supplies since 1962. Our customers tend to be small shops and
individuals who are looking for very specific, and often hard to find,
parts for rocketry, stunt equipment, movie props and old school
hydraulics."

Long story short: it's an aerospace junk / surplus dealer that is
completely surreal. Norton Sales may be of interest to hackers, people
interested in aerospace technologies, STS folk, nerds, etc. or just
people looking for something random and interesting to do.  Unlike
many junkyards, there is also no age restriction (like bringing kids)
to the place - so feel free to bring kids along if you like.

Come on out, bring some money, your friends and some dirty clothes.
