Does anyone know who won the raffle motor? I'm writing an article on the event and would like to include their name & city if I can find out.

The last announced number I heard was 580 registered. One of the buses in our camp was 567, and he arrived at like lunch time on Saturday. Definitely had to be at least 600 there.

Here's an album of my pics and videos -

I don't recall hearing any drones but it would be neat to see Randee's name made with lanterns.

I saw a bus registration blue sheet with #586 on it... and that doesn't include the $2 parking lot buses or the event organizers' buses. Massive turn out - it was amazing!

The BBB organizers announced there were 560 registered VW buses at the event this year. And there were over 40 more sitting out in the parking lot. So it appears over 600 buses were at BBB for 2018! It was an outstanding gathering, with great entertainment, fantastic bus people, and even a beer here and there...
