Cool, I've always loved this uncomplicated show. And I've got to admit that I'm a little hesitant on the new cash award in the "Best of Award" categories.

This has always been a very comfortable, laid back day and that will continue for all of the regular classes? But the organizers felt that for the 15th event, it was time for a change and this is one of the ideas?

All we have to do is pray for good weather.

I'm not really sure what happened with the Corvair guys? One club worked with us for 13 years and the club disbanded. A second club stepped in last year, but bailed this year?

I believe no Corvair will be denied entry, but there will be no class or trophies to share?

Stanagon, Gerry's not the best at this on-line stuff as he would call it, but you can just go to - www.the-Bug-Club.com - web site.

Right on the home page (maybe scroll down a bit) you will find a link to sponsor a class and pay via PayPal. Couldn't be easier.

Good luck, hope to see you there.

one of my favorite shows of the year. So close to home and the ice cream is always good. Scored some good stuff at the swap last year too!

This is the first time a local VW show has had vendors spaces for FREE. Very Happy That I can remember.

Is this show rain or shine? I don't see a rain date. Weather is looking "iffy". Thanks! Tom
