The Moose Lodge show was really nice last year. Definitely going to try to make that one again.

Litchfield and Terryville aren't on that list either

Wow, *tremendous* work guys--that's one heck of an impressive lineup of cool events--I can't wait for 2013!

Like thewalrus said, I also thought Marlborough was a really fun time.

And VolksMeet in Westbrook too--wow!

I had a really tremendous time at the first-ever CVA/Montesi "Das Auto" event, ref: http://home.comcast.net/~commonsteve/CVAMontesi2012/ShowReport.html - so great to know that one'll be back for 2013 also.

And the list goes on and on... I can't say enough about how impressed I am withe work the CVA does to create and produce FUN things to do for VW owners in this area.

Thanks again Chris, Bill, and all!
