Was wondering if we could camp all night...flier says gates close at 10... do we have to leave? also..It takes me awhile to get my 40 horse through the Mountains..will we be able to come Friday evening and set-up camp?how close is camp to the show? do you have to show your car to camp? I wouldn't mind showing my pile..

If you sign up to camp, you can be there from Friday night thru Sunday night for one price & your wristband allows you to come & go as you please.
The gates are closed each night at 10 to anyone without a wristband.
Camping is inside the show area along the river & other areas.
You're not required to show your VW to camp but... why not?
If you set up camp & decide to show later, just go to the registration area & they'll take care of you.
Don't worry about that old 40 horse. It's a two day show, we'll wait for you.

Is that area being affected by the gas shortage? If so, how bad is it really? We are planning to drive up, but want to make sure we can get home, too.

We've gotten several calls & emails about fuel in this area.
We don't have a problem but have heard Atlanta & Nashville are still experiencing spotty shortages so plan ahead if you're traveling through those areas.
If you can get here, you should not have a problem with fuel for your return trip.

Thanks to all you guys & gals for making this show what it is.
A little hard to handle on Saturday but we managed to get em all in there.
I'm meeting with the city today on plans to enlarge & improve the fairgrounds.
Just glad it was a VW show that convinced them they need more real estate.
Oh yeah, they were there most of the weekend and very impressed with you folks. They commented on how you all "just seem to be a big family".
I agree.
Thanks again to everyone.

Ermal and the gang always put on a good show!
Hope we can get back up there in the future and enjoy the fun again!

I personally had a great time. Every year I meet someone I have talked to a some point on this web site. I have yet to meet someone I didn't like that is involved in Vw's. I am already planning for spring.

It would be great to expand and see this show grow every year.

See you guys in may....

John
