You only need to contact Steve (909-868-8761 cell) if you need an RV spot. They go fast! We will have an area for Things to park and camp. We will also have an area at the El Prado show for all the Things to park together. Our Kubel Treffen West event will be Friday-Sunday with the El Prado show as the main event on Sunday. I know some of our members from out of town will be coming in town on Wednesday and Thursday. We can let you in the camp area early if you get there before Friday. We also have a host hotel that is offering discounts if you need a place to stay. We will post that info soon. Please RSVP on our page and contact Jeff or I if you have any other questions. Looking forward to a great event! Thanks.

So now we are in 2017 and June is just around the corner...
I have my badge idea; from earlier posts.
Now on to other ideas; letís hear from the group on some of these below points so we can make the most of this great eventÖ https://goo.gl/eyStGA
1. T-Shirt ideas and art? So far only 20 cars on the list, so it will be a short run. Any artists in the group? Any ideas of companies to use?
2. Do we have a cruise and if so where and when; Saturday?
3. Dinner night, where and when?
4. Should we organize our own big BBQ at the 181 camp-out at El Prado one night? Maybe Fri.
5. Awards for Thing event/show and what might the categories be; besides furthest driven? And if so how will we produce them, by hand or professional and if so who and or what company.
6. Or just wing it and hang out and have fun.
Main El Prodo page:
http://www.keepitstock.com/blackstar.html
Note OCTO Sat. before noon & El Prado show Sunday. http://octo.org/
http://vwthingregistry.com/kubel-treffen-car-show/
Letís talk my friends. Cool
I personally hope to be at the camp-out no later than Thur. and will return or head off to the Silicon Valley late Sunday afternoon.
Your ideas & comments...? Very Happy

Hey Jeff, Thanks for all your help! See my comments below.

Looks like we have about 21 Things on the list so far (one member is bring two). Hopefully we can get around 50 by June Smile
1. T-Shirt ideas and art? So far only 20 cars on the list, so it will be a short run. Any artists in the group? Any ideas of companies to use? Once we have the design complete, I have a guy who can print.
2. Do we have a cruise and if so where and when; Saturday? Yes, I think we should plan a run to the temple you suggested and dinner.
3. Dinner night, where and when? Friday night BBQ camp and Saturday restaurant.
4. Should we organize our own big BBQ at the 181 camp-out at El Prado one night? Maybe Fri. Yes.
5. Awards for Thing event/show and what might the categories be; besides furthest driven? And if so how will we produce them, by hand or professional and if so who and or what company. You are nominated to do the awards! We love your idea Smile

Here are my thoughts following Eric's in BLUE:

1. T-Shirt ideas and art? So far only 20 cars on the list, so it will be a short run. Any artists in the group? Any ideas of companies to use? Once we have the design complete, I have a guy who can print. I also have a guy that prints my off-road shirts.
2. Do we have a cruise and if so where and when; Saturday? Yes, I think we should plan a run to the temple you suggested and dinner. There are several cruises planned that week for OCTO, Prado and The Classic (which I heard was being moved to the following weekend). We could join one or more of those, or do our own thing Cool. There is a large group from the Prado campgrounds that drive over to the OCTO meet on Saturday morning. Maybe we could do that, and then head South to an Orange County beach for a while and then stop for dinner.
3. Dinner night, where and when? Friday night BBQ camp and Saturday restaurant. Agreed
4. Should we organize our own big BBQ at the 181 camp-out at El Prado one night? Maybe Fri. Yes. Agreed
5. Awards for Thing event/show and what might the categories be; besides furthest driven? And if so how will we produce them, by hand or professional and if so who and or what company. You are nominated to do the awards! We love your idea Smile Maybe our friends to the East can suggest some awards they typically give out at the Kubel Treffen events there.

Well, I guess we are on our way then...

The temple Eric is referring to is in the same city; and I was so totally stunned by the art and architecture, it seemed like just a cool place nearby to take pictures.
If you Volks think of something else let me know... I am in this just for the camping and BBQ Wink

If we stay inland, we could visit the NHRA museum in Pomona and hit a few of the Route 66 hot spots in the area after visiting the Hindu Temple.

This is awesome! Thanks for doing this KTW who ever is in charge.
Normally I take my 65 bus to Blackstar and get rained on at OCTO but this year my Thing gets to go instead Very Happy

Added myself to the list #21

Suggestions:
I'd think a cruise through the nearby Chino Hills would be fun and scenic especially if it's a dirt road or if any of the CA beaches allow vehicles to "drive" on them would be a nice photo pop too.

Thank you! It's my event, for the VW Thing Registry but would not be possible without everyone's help and support. Make sure you follow us on Facebook.

We will continue to update everyone on our Facebook event page and this forum.

The week in June is a Huge week for VW activities in So Cal. It all starts with a DKNP cruise, Blackstar campout (at Prado Park), Just Cruzin VW cruise and show in Ontario, the OCTO show in Long Beach and the El Prado Show & Shine at El Prado park. And now the VW Thing Registry, Kubel Treffen West! Smile I am sure other VW events will be added. Note: the VW Classic show has been moved to the following weekend after the El Prado show.

We have a very large nice space near the lake reserved at Prado park for us to park during the El Prado show. We also have a camping area just for Things reserved at the park near the show area. You will just pay at the Park gate to camp or attend the show and park in our area.

We are planning to attend the events mentioned above and add a BBQ, cruise and group photo for our event. We are still planning everything and are open to suggestions. We have one member coming from Canada and another thinking of coming for the East Coast. Our sponsor Thingparts.com will also be at the show from NY!

I will send out an email update with new information each month until the show to keep you up to date.

Here are the links with more info:

I believe the closest beach to Prado that you can drive on is Pismo Beach over 200 miles away. Crying or Very sad I could be wrong, but I don't believe there are any fire roads in the Chino Hills that we can drive on either.

The closest legal OHV area is in Wildomar about 40 miles to the South. If we go this route we could stop at Lake Elsinore for some pictures. Whatever the group decides to do, I'm in. Cool

The one thing that has to be kown is Chino is surrounded by some of the worst Freeways in that part of the Inland Empire. These are not Thing friendly. Just something to think about when you want to go any distance. It is not just a hop skip and a jump to any place.

The OCTO cruise is great; let see how much I drink the night before. Wink
But one way or the other I plan on going to OCTO. We can all caravan.

Looks like we are at 22 Things on the official RSVP list.

Thanks to master Cecil we will have some of his awesome hand made arbon fiber door panels with locks!
