Tech Webinar on Automotive Cooling Systems on Saturday January 8, 2022 at 1PM

Last year the Pittsburgh Section was proud to present several Tech Webinars on Brake Systems led by our Gear Heads Coordinator Paul Bowman, his son Alex, who is an Automotive Engineer at Honda of America Manufacturing, and his son Ethan, who handled all of the video technology for the livestreaming from Paul’s garage. We have decided to keep this format as live-streamed events can reach a much bigger audience than face-to-face meetings in a restaurant or garage.

Our next Tech Webinar will be on January 8, 2022, at 1PM led again by Paul, Alex, and Ethan and streamed on Google Meets.

You can join the webinar by either clicking on this link: meet.google.com/cvc-whfi-yfd, or if that doesn't work, by copying and pasting it into your browser search bar.

Please log in between 12:40P and 12:55P so we can help troubleshoot any technical issues you may be having before the webinar starts. If you run into problems, please email paul@mbcapghchapter.com

While not mandatory, please RSVP to paul@mbcapghchapter.com if you plan to attend, so we can have a rough headcount. Also, please indicate which club/chapter you are a member of (this is a multi-club event).

Basic theory behind how cooling systems work

  • Key inspections to ensure they are performing at a peak level
  • Different types of coolant and choices in replacement parts

2019 Events

Tour Heinz Field
Friday, June 21st

On Friday, June 21, 2019, a group of seven, MBC Pittsburgh and family members, toured Heinz Field. The tour was lead by Brandon Artman of the Marketing Dept. While in the locker room, we had a bonus! The six Lombardy Trophies were there, in a single box!! Our view was as up close and personal as you can get without being a player or Organization VIP!!! Normally, they are in the Great Hall.

We were also treated to a lot of extra time in the Hall of Honor. Brandon explained how people are selected for the Steeler's Hall of Honor and who may be next for the Hall of Fame. Also got some pics, of our group. We did get on the field, as it was, miraculously, a dry day!! The Press Box showed us how broadcasters get the game to their listeners and viewers. Through the thoughtfulness and kindness of the Steelers, we were given gift bags at the conclusion of the tour.

Lunch at Southern Tier followed the Tour. Again, we were so fortunate to have marvelous weather, so we ate outside. Food was enjoyed by all and we had a great time!! A big THANKS to the Steeler Organization for this fun day!!
