The LBB would like to THANK everyone that helped make BBB XVIII (1Cool
such a huge success. You can see the article in the MAY 2014 edition of HOT VW'S.

Now let's get ready for the next one in 2015.

We have already received our first raffle prize a COMPLETE AC system for your VW compliments of Gilmore Ent. That's a 1500 dollar prize!!!!!!!

We will be working hard to make BBB 19 even better then 18 if that is even
possible and looking forward to having you all back again.

NOTE; All vendors need to be PRE REGISTERED if you wish to vend at the event. Space is limited and there will be no exceptions.

Was just thinking about this earlier, one thing that could be better than last year...make the window sticker less transparent; you can hardly see the thing on the window. Smile

I'm hoping to make BBB 2015 my first one......
I'll most likely leave the DC at home and bring the Vanagon......

I've read the threads on BBB 2013 and BBB 2014.....

And I have a couple of questions.....

There's no way I can go from Thursday to Sunday w/o charging stuff up.....
Are there any provisions for electric hook ups?
Can I bring the generator?

The slow drive from Colorado, hanging out, and driving slowly back home, means the trip is at least eight days. Longer if I win the bus in the raffle....
Smile
It would help if I could get some "work" done on the lap top.... Any WIFI in the area????

Thanks,
Chuck

Electrical hook-ups: This isn't an RV park
Generator: only if you want to be super annoying to everyone around you
Raffle: who said there's a bus in the raffle?
WiFi: Nope

You need to learn to disconnect yourself and enjoy camping without your electronic distractions.

Only at the official campground just down the road from where all the Buses will be. You could camp there and walk into the event, much like folks staying in the hotel... but it'll cost you far more than $40 for the entire weekend (and you best make reservations).

There were a few folks who had them this year, but solar is better. Wink

Bring your bike and ride (or simply walk) the mile down to McDonald's.

As for the Bus Raffle, you're confusing Buses By The Bridge with Jerome Jamboree. Wink But, BBTB has awesome raffle stuff... one of these years I'm taking home a fire pit! Pray Laughing
