I know it is still over a year away, but our local hosts (Marion & Peg McDonald) are getting ahead of the game as far as planning for our next Invasion. They have reserved our venue and lined up camping and host hotel already (hold off until June to make reservations).

So I put together the beginning of the 2018 Invasion website and am starting this thread, putting some info on Facebook, and starting a thread over on the vwtype3.org list. Time to get the word out and starting thinking about your plans to attend the Invasion in Scottsboro, AL.

Don't forget that if you are planning on attending and want to get your name on the "Planned Invaders" list and map, you need to send me an email ([email protected]) with the following info:

Name
City and State
E-mail Address
and the Type 3s you have or are bringing to the Invasion

I added a few more Invaders and our route down to Scottsboro from the Detroit area. Turns out we are way too close to Deals Gap to not add a little detour and run the Tail of the Dragon on the way down! It is going to be epic taking the Type 3s through those 11 miles and 318 turns!

Great news, and just in time. My 68 square back is getting painted this year and should be back together in good time for the invasion.

I'm starting to plan for this now. I am in Mobile, AL. There are about 12-15 (that I know of) of us along the coast from Gulfport, MS to Fort Walton Beach, FL. I will be working to get at least a few of us there.

Here's a link to a gallery from a show this weekend. There were 6 Type 3s in attendance.

Added a few more Invaders to the Map and List. Been seeing interest from folks on this thread and getting lots of requests to add folks to the Facebook group from all over the SouthEast which is great. Lots of new names and cars.

However, don't forget that the only way to get added to the Invaders List and Map is to email me with your name, City/State, e-mail, and Type 3 info.

Just over 15 months to go!

Added some more Invaders to the list and map. Even have the first one from Florida!

I still need to add the site photos that I got from our hosts and some other details. Still working on the official logo too. Hoping to get the finalized in the next few weeks. Stay tuned.

‘Bama or bust in 2018!

Made some significant updates to the Invasion website. Lots more maps and pictures of the Invasion site. Added a few Invaders, updated the lodging/host hotel information, and updated the logo. The logo is still a work in progress, but it is getting closer.

http://www.carartbyjohn.com/2018Invasion/index.html

Most important is the host hotel is now taking reservation for our block of rooms. I made our reservation this morning. The Hampton Inn has set-up a direct link to our block and rate. Here is the link:

It's not as fun as one would think. First off there are tons of squids on bikes that will run you off the road or pass you on blind turns. 18-wheelers use that road which they are encouraged not to. You have to watch for trucks pulling boats in your lane going around corners. Usually Tennessee steps up police patrol of their section during the spring and summer. The cops around Robbinsville, N.C. are pricks. The speed limit is 35mph on HWY 129 IIRC.

Can't wait for the invasion!

Gail and I just got back home from a small vacation, and we also stopped in for a visit with our friends Peg and Marion McDonald in Alabama. They are also our hosts for the upcoming 2018 Invasion.
While we were there – we scoped out their choices for the Invasion site, the host hotel, and the facility where we will be having our Saturday night dinner. As expected, they did a marvelous job picking out these sites as they are experienced Invasion attendees and know exactly what works best to host an Invasion. The Invasion site is right next to a lake and should provide us plenty of shade during the day. The hotel is brand new and we will have the rear parking lot covered in type 3’s to hang around with at night, and the dinner site will be the perfect place to have a nice air conditioned dinner at the end of Saturday as well. They are working on a neat group activity for us to do on Friday should you so choose to participate, but I won’t spoil their announcement. Here’s hoping it comes through for them! Cool
We also stopped in at Dennis’s school to meet him and “Clementine”, but evidently he must have been skipping school that day. Don’t worry Dennis, we won’t tell on ya. Razz
When we returned home, I clicked on the link provided on Johns 2018 Invasion website ( http://www.carartbyjohn.com/2018Invasion/ ) to make reservations at the Hampton Inn and it was as easy as could be.
This is setup to be another great Invasion, so don’t forget to make your plans and make your reservations – only 9 months away!

Added a few more Invaders to the website. I also just got a bunch of updated info from our hosts for the Friday group activity and the Saturday dinner. I will be adding it to the Invasion website over the weekend and announcing it here.

Stay tuned.

Don't forgot to send me your info for the Invaders Map and List if you are planning on attending.

I made some significant updates to the Invasion website over the last week or so.

http://www.carartbyjohn.com/2018Invasion/index.html

Of course added some more Invaders. Up to 32 already. Don’t forget to send me your details if you are planning on attending so I can add you to the Invaders list and map. Remember there is no registration fee and adding you name to the List/Map just helps us plan a little better. Never any obligation to attend.

Our hosts, Marion and Peg, have lined up plans for our Saturday dinner and those details have been added. Link is on the Schedule of Events page. We will be having a catered dinner at a private hall with plenty of room and parking. Should make for a great evening.

They have also lined up a caravan to the VW Factory and Museum in Chattanooga, TN with a tours of the VW Academy, Museum, and Factory for Friday. A catered lunch on site will be available for purchase. A link to the details is on the Schedule of Events page. Going to be a very memorable part of the Invasion for those that choose to attend.

As we get closer to the Invasion we will be getting details out for folks to pre-pay for the Friday lunch at the VW Factory and for the Saturday dinner. So stay tuned for those…

Hard to believe we are only 8 months away!

‘Bama or Bust!
