OK guys, here's the deal:

The SoCal Bajas group is having our 2nd Annual Toy Drive at our December meeting on Tuesday, December 22nd. I wanted to make sure that everyone here was aware and invited to the event.

Basically, we each go out and purchase at least one VW or off-road based toy and bring it to the meeting. I know. I know. VW toys are increasingly hard to find, but if you put a little effort into it, you'll find one out there somewhere. One of our members will gather all of the toys up and donate them to Toys For Tots in time for them to be shared with needy kids for the holidays. This is a great way to reach out to the community and a great way to meet new local people who share your same interest in off-roading and VW's. Please come out and join us!

Don't worry: There's no funny hats to wear, no secret handshakes, and no goofy traditions. It's just a group of guys that likes to get together once a month and enjoy pizza and beer, and once a month to get dirty and do a run. See the website for further details about the club.

We will be meeting in a pretty central location in Southern California, at:

Barro's Pizza
21000 Golden Springs Dr
Walnut, CA 91789-3831

People generally start showing up between 7:0 and 7:30. Bring the family if you want. Bring the VW if you can. Bring a toy if you come!

Again: EVERYONE IS INVITED.

Merry Christmas to all.....

I can't wait we went out shopping tonight and got a set of matchbox cars that included a 23 window bus and a new beetle 4x4 RC car. I wish I could drive the buggy to the meeting but had to put the engine on hold for the holidays.

I should be able to make it to the meeting.

Does anyone know if Barro's offers a Seniors Discount? I got my AARP card in the mail last week. Shocked

COOL. Riverside, Ventura... I think we'll have some guys from the San Diego area. Elco said he's coming from Palmdale. Sounds like it's going to be a big gathering with people driving a long ways.

That's really cool. It's for a good cause.

We'll have a good time.

BTW Mark: SoCal Bajas does give a 50% discount on its annual dues to AARP members.

Of course, 50% of free isn't all that much.


It's the thought that counts, right?

Brad... You've been talking about coming for a year and a half now. You're always out of town, busy, don't have a running car, too embarrassed to be seen with Skidmark in public, etc. Are you coming this month?

I'll do my best to show up in my chevy if my liver is up for the journey. Christmas toy drives are always a hell of a cause, and as far as I know I have nothing going on that Tuesday.

Looks like we're going to have a great turn out again. If you're on the fence and think that you might want to see what SoCal Bajas is all about, this would be a terrific opportunity. Bring the family.

Jay promised not to get up on the table and dance naked this year, so you should be safe!

... Only a few more days to get your toys. It's right off the 60 freeway near the 57. Here's a map with a link to directions:
