Any claims on the RMW giveaways?

I wish I could say that I was one. I bought extra tickets once I saw the under seat sliders in real life.
Thanks for putting so much bling into the raffle. Applause

I just realized that I never even saw the finished version of the keychain. Were they for sale?

Sorry you never got one, Mario! They were in the packets but not until Friday when Andrew showed up with them. I'll see if I can find one for you...

Rat vans have more fun, just ask Marco.

I had a really good time at SyncroFest, I enjoyed seeing and talking with every one. Thanks to all the organizers and volunteers for putting on a great event.

Hopefully next year we can all be together again. There were some favorite faces we didn't get to see this year.

Great pics and videos and thank goodness I did not ask the question I wanted to. Found the answers on some of the videos. Perhaps Vanagonman should be introduced to Utilikilts.

Anyhow loved seeing all your skills and Marco Rolo and glad no one was hurt and you had great weather. Congrats on your inaugaural event, looks like a huge success because of lots of hard work and help.

Had a great time! I now know why you guys are so Syncro addicted! Laughing

Special thanks to Lance for giving me my first-ever Syncro ride... pure awesomeness!! Cool

And thank you for the fabulous trophy... Old Blue certainly enjoyed looking pretty for you all (and got filthy in the Sierras afterward). Very Happy

Currently still on the road back to AZ... will post SF pics and videos once I'm back home.

Ah, you were the one I (very briefly) spoke to as I rolled in after almost everyone had left on Sunday and followed out of there. You have an awesome van Smile.

Who brought the Golf Country? I absolutely love those things!
Was it registered in the US? or Canada?

The driver was Jeff Schwaia from Autostadt West. It still had european plates on it but I am sure that it is in the process, if not already legal- since he is a registered importer.

Jeff told me that the syncro golf (It might not be a T3 but it's a syncro) will be for sale soon.

I asked him aboute German plates. He said the car was registered to him in Germany using his CA address. I would'nt want to have to see how the CHP felt about that myself.
