i'm gonna ask everyone i know if they wanna voluntarily spend their saturday making food for complete strangers.



na, we got it covered now, Ramon and Jeff are our designated OCOD Grill Masters for Saturday...we'll have burgers, dogs, snacks, sodas, and water. We're bringing out the gas grills so no one needs to haul charcoal bags around...although maybe next year we could haul 50lb bags around and make it a competition! Wink


for those of you reading this and not understanding what we're talking about....the JustaPizza place went out of business at the Lodge so we had a food vendor lined up but some things shifted and the food vendor couldn't do in on Saturday. So we decided to bring out a grill or two on saturday manned by Ramon and Jeff!

But in between all of this taking place i asked Gibbs (UZI) if he'd cook for 100 or so strangers Laughing Shocked Laughing and the cool part is that he started to plan for it! Thanks Gibbs and the rest of the voluntary South Philly Van Club for considering it in such short notice! So you guys can just chill and have a good time on saturday!!!

we do appreciate all the help and support everyone's given us so far in preparation for DF! See all of you on Saturday and some of you on Friday!!! Cool Cool

we just can't do security and grill for a hundred people. after we've kept them safe all day, the last thing they would want to do is ask us to feed them. they'd feel like they were being treated like three year olds. glad you got the grillers lined up. i'm sure they will be fabulous. Cool

Great selection of Air-cooled VW and Porsche cars. buggies and buses. Swap meet was not bad at all considering it was the second year. Come down,Hang out, Have a cocktail, Have some fun. Very worth the trip!!!

thinking about going, would it be worth the 5 hour drive + call out from work + driving at night to make it?

it's a good time and the venue can't be beat. no doubt one of the coolest shows with the most potential on the east coast. you can even go ride the zip lines.

Yes, as long as you have one headlight that works and are not afraid of the dark. I'll even write you a note excusing your absence from work. Wink

X2 what UZI wrote. Last year was my first time at Dripfest and was my reintroduction back into the VW scene which I had been away from for a while. I had a great time and enjoyed the show. Great bunch of people, genuine VW enthusiasts, not a lot of knuckleheads like the bigger shows.

More importantly,

I'm still holding out hope that there will be some snow left up at the enormous 500 ft summit of the ski area... Cool

wow, thanks for all the positive feedback about the show before the show...it's nice to know everyone enjoys the Dripfest Experience! Wink

the 1st year we had about 30cars or so and 106 degrees of sweat dripping heat, 2nd year (last year) we had a little over 80 cars, 15-20vendors, 150 spectators, this year we've promoted the show A Lot more and made 3 days of cool stuff to do, so who knows what we'll see....i know one thing that really makes me smile is that there are a handful of guys that are using Dripfest this year as their deadline to get their vws roadworthy (enough) to cruise out to the show...it may not sound like much, but the idea that people are busting their butts to finish up, start and finish up, tweak, or travel a fair distance to Dripfest means we're doing something right or a combo of something right Wink Wink Wink

In my opinion, All the organizers of any show do is to TRY to put on a great show, BUT You Guys Attending with your Rides is what Truly Makes a Great Show! If it weren't for you guys showing your support, we'd have 9 fools standing in an empty lot in june with no snow at a ski lodge.....so we thank you guys before the show this year!!!

something else the OCOD attempt to do...and that's to create some killer Show Tees and other accessories that you'll see on saturday....here's a peak at this year's Dripfest T...hope you guys like it!

I know you mentioned earlier that there is a bridge out near the show.
Do you have a map showing what's the best way to get there, and which bridge is out?
Thanks,
j.

if you guys are coming up 476 you're okay.
it's really for those coming up route 29 from 422.

the bridge that is out is the bridge that's literally a walk away from the Spring Mtn Lower Parking Lot (the location of the show in 2008).

as a result of the Bridge being out, there are Really Good DETOUR Signs to Spring Mtn now Wink
it's about a 3mile detour around the other side to come in by 663/476 entrance.

i'll try to get an image of it posted up!

it's the bridge crossing the Perkiomen River between cabin craft campgrounds and spring mtn ski area (hence us camping in the show area section)

MAIN ST is right over the bridge in the image, you can see the River the bridge crosses.

Funny, but true.

The '70 passed PA inspection today, so I can legally drive it to Dripfest!

Put me down for one of those t-shirts, great design!

Oh, Manny,
If you're coming off LonGuyland Friday nite, we could meet up.
Looks about the same distance for you whether you take 78 or the Turnpikes. Let me know.
