August 29, 2021 - Kelley Park Spring Meet
San Jose, California
Facebook Twitter

The Golden Gate Chapter of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America will be hosting their 36th Annual Spring Meet at History San Jose at Kelley Park in San Jose on Sunday, August 29 from 8 am to 3 pm. All air-cooled VW's are welcome.

All cars entering the park MUST register for the car show and MUST park in their respective class. There will be NO pre-registration for either the car show or swap. You will still queue up in the bottom parking lot and pay at the gate and register your car at the club booth after you park your car inside the park. Because of park concerns with people leaving early in their cars before the show ends, we ask if you think you will have to leave early that you please park your car outside and walk-in. If you would like to be a sponsor or a vendor please contact Rick Spohn at email [email protected] or phone 408-683-0154 after 7 pm.

Please note there is NO alcohol, NO pets, and NO BBQ's allowed inside the park. These are park rules and must be obeyed. The park has asked us to make sure everyone packs up and leaves immediately after the show is over. This has become a problem in the past and has jeopardized our club to continue to have the show at the park.

The Holiday Inn Express located at 17035 Condit Road in Morgan Hill will be the host hotel and security will be provided. The group block has been entered into the system and guests can start booking their rooms.

There are two ways that guests can book their rooms:

1. They can call into reservations at 877-776-7676 and state they are with the Kelley Park VW Club or provide the group code KEL. By the end of the call the reservationist will provide the individual with a confirmation number.

2. They can book online by following the attached directions on how to book your room online. The important thing to remember is that they need to put in the group code KEL and the date(s) they want to stay must be within the group block.

For general information regarding the Kelley Park Spring Meet, please visit the Golden Gate Chapter website at www.ggcvvwca.org.

September 03, 2021 - September 06, 2021 - "Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #35" (aka BNNTA)
Mark Twain Lake, Missouri
Facebook Twitter

"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #35"

Formerly, and also known as "Buses By The Arch". A family-oriented VW camping weekend!

Friday, Sept 3rd through Monday Sept 6th, 2021 (The entire Labor Holiday Day weekend!)

Website for updated event info: http//www.bnnta.com

It's time again to make plans to attend the premier Midwest VW Type 2 camping event! On average, we are delighted to host roughly about 100 Buses. (Check out past event coverage in the July, 2011 issue of "Hot VWs Magazine".)

Come join us for the upcoming "Buses Nowhere Near the Arch" camping weekend. This family camping event will feature a gathering of VW Transporters of all types and eras from all over the USA. While predominantly a Type 2 event, all models of VW are welcome to camp with us! We are looking forward to seeing you and your Transporter amidst all the "Split-windshields", "Bubble-windshields", Vanagons, and EuroVans as well as any other VW types and models this Fall. All models and years of VWs are invited, and only VWs are allowed inside the BNNTA event campground.

"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #35" will be held rain or shine over the
long Labor Day holiday weekend, Friday, Sept 3rd thru Sep 6th, 2021. We will gather again at the "group use" campground at Indian Creek Recreation Area. This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers campground is located right alongside 18,000 acre Mark Twain Lake, about 30 miles southwest of historic Hannibal, Missouri. This is a beautiful, federally-run campground with paved roads and parking pads and nice facilities. Most conveniences are available in nearby Monroe City or Hannibal.

On both Friday and Saturday evening we plan to have campfires and music along with VW and other "unusual" door prizes, and parts swapping in addition to the "site-to-site" socializing "Bus-banter" that this VW camping event is famous for. On Saturday morning we are planning another of our famous "Bus caravans" over to historic Hannibal, the boyhood home of Samuel Clemens, a.k.a. "Mark Twain." You'll have lots of time to explore the haunts of his hometown, or tour "Injun Joe's cave." You won't want to miss it!

If all goes well, on Saturday afternoon we plan another communal gathering for a pot luck dinner. So if you join us for that dinner, please plan for and bring a large portion side dish to share with everyone! On Saturday evening, owners choice awards will be presented in several Type 2 classes in addition to vendor and participant-donated door prizes. If you have any neat VW-related items to donate, bring them along. On Sunday you are free to enjoy the lake or visit other regional highlights. It should prove to be a relaxed, fun weekend full of great Volkswagen experiences and new friendships.

Our private camping facilities at Indian Creek include our own large, private "Buses Nowhere Near the Arch" group area with some electric hook-ups (first come, first served), fishing, water-sports (bring your water toys), playground, a huge pavilion, toilet and shower facilities, and a nearby boat ramp. The all inclusive camping/event fee is $30 per VW for the entire weekend.

Only VW’s that are registered and camping will be admitted into the BNNTA group campground area! Now, please read that last sentence again!

Sites in the BNNTA group campground area can not be reserved in advance. The gates to our campground will be open for arrivals and site selection by about noon on Friday. If you arrive earlier, you could stay nearby in the regular campground at the Indian Creek Recreational Area. Although there should be plenty of room, the earlier you arrive the better.

We are looking forward to your arrival for a long holiday weekend full of Volkswagen fun. Please pass the word around to your VW friends about this Volkswagen camping festival held over the long Labor Day holiday weekend!

So wipe down and pack up those Transporters for the cruise over to Mark Twain Lake for the "Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #35" campout on Friday, Sept 3rd thru Monday Sept 6th, 2021 near Hannibal, Missouri. Please see the website below for lots of photos and information and a link to a mapping program to find your way to BNNTA.

September 12, 2021 - So Cal Vintage VW Treffen
Anaheim, California
Facebook Twitter

8th International Southern California Vintage VW Treffen

After visiting events in Germany like Bad Camberg and Hessisch Oldendorf, we wanted to bring an old German atmosphere together with strictly Vintage Volkswagens. The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, California is a true "old school" German Cultural Club, as well as the perfect host for an event like this. The So Cal Vintage Treffen is limited to 1961 and earlier "Small Taillight" Beetles and Buses, 1959 and earlier Karmann Ghias, early Military Vehicles and Coachbuilts, as well as Porsche 356 “A” and "pre-A" cars.. Our first event held in September 2007 turned out to be a big success, and the plan is to hold it every other year opposite the Solvang Vintage Meet put on by the Golden Gate Chapter of the VVWCA. So if you have an old VW collecting dust in the garage and you want to show it off, or if you're just looking for an excuse to have an authentic German Bratwurst and beer... the So Cal Vintage Treffen is just the place for you.

Saturday, September 11th, 2021
Speedwell Rallye will be back. Check the website (www.BUGIN.com) for updates as they become available.

8th International So-Cal Vintage VW Treffen
Car Show/Vendor Gate opens @ 6:00 am
Spectator Gate opens @ 7:30 am
Breakfast Available @ 7:30-10:00am
Lunch Available @ 10:00am-2:00pm
Show Judging ends, Ballots due @ 11:00 am
Car Show Awards @ 1:00 pm

$10 Spectator Admission
$20 Standard Car Entry
$60 Deluxe Car Entry
$40 Vendor/Swap Spot

The So-Cal Vintage Treffen is limited to the first 200 cars registered. This event in particular is specifically for 1961 and earlier "Small Taillight" Beetles and Buses, 1959 and earlier "low light" Karmann Ghias, WWII Military and early VW Coachbuilts. Because of our limited room at the Phoenix Club, we have to limit the vehicle count to 200. If there are spots available after pre-registration closes, we will take entries the day of the event until our maximum capacity is reached.

$60 Deluxe Entry: This will get in both driver and one passenger. (must be riding along in the car) For your Deluxe Entry you will be included in the "Participant Judged" portion of the event and receive the "Wolfsburg West Goodie Bag" including the limited edition, numbered car badge and dash plaque. If you have entered in a previous Treffen event and would like the same number as before, that can be arranged. Also, the vehicles picked to park in the Beer Garden and Festal-Tent will be chosen from our Deluxe Entries only. Deluxe entries will also have the option to load in early on Saturday afternoon and pre-stage their vehicles.

$20 Standard Entry: These entries will be sold at the gate, on the morning of the event, as space allows. Standard entry participants will be able to park inside on the grass along with all the other early vehicles. The Standard entry is for the person who wants to show up and park inside, but not necessarily interested in receiving any of the limited edition goodies. Be advised that there will be limited Standard entries based on the number of pre-registered Deluxe entries. Also, standard entries will not be included in the judged portion of the car show.

No show trailers will be allowed inside the Phoenix Club facility. We are very limited on parking, so if you plan on towing a vehicle, please make arrangements ahead of time to store your truck and trailer somewhere off-site.

Each "Deluxe Entry" participant will receive a judging card to fill out and return to the car show registration booth. You are to vote for one car in each class except the class you are registered in. A first place and runner-up award will be given out for each class along with a few specialty awards to be determined later

From daily drivers and outlaws to garage queens and concours winners, all 914s are welcome at Okteenerfest! Make plans now to join other 914 owners for some fantastic driving, plenty of socializing, a bit of showing off, and a truckload of give-aways. What's that? You say your 914 is on jack stands? No worries. Plan to attend anyway as there is always an empty seat available. You won't be disappointed.

Okteenerfest returns to its roots in the Smokies of east Tennessee and will be held in “action packed” Pigeon Forge. This year's route features the world famous Dragon and its 318 curves in 11 miles. As usual, the day drive includes not only a ton of twisties, sweepers, and ear-popping elevation changes but plenty of stopping points to get out, stretch, and enjoy the scenic splendor of the mountains.

In addition to the drive, there will be a car show, possible swap meet, tech sessions, banquet and door prizes. LOTS of door prizes!

10am to 2pm
Nojoqui Falls Park, near Solvang

This is a grass roots effort and we need your help to make it a success.
Read On...

General Info:
Meet us in the Middle for a gathering of VW enthusiasts from Southern and Central California. The location is beautiful Nojoqui Falls Park in Santa Barbara County. It is near the Danish style city of Solvang. Take the short hike up the trail to the falls that are usually flowing nicely this time of year.

MITM Rules. If you plan on bringing a small bbq pit that hot coals get put in the designated trash cans only. If not we will not be able to allow personal bbq pits next year. Also when heading up to the falls this year please obey all the caution signs due to slide a few years ago it has created a safety hazard.

Thank you,
Eric Lykens

April 02, 2022 - Herbie's 53rd Anniversary Celebration Extravaganza
Daytona Beach, Florida
Facebook Twitter

One Daytona/Daytona International Speedway
April 2-3, 2022
All VW’s are welcomed and encouraged to attend

We are at it once again. For those who did not have a chance to participate in Herbie The Love Bug’s 50 Year Anniversary which included the Lakeland VW Classic pictured above, we are doing it again in April of 2022, celebrating 53 Years since the release of the very first movie.

This time around, there are going to be even more Herbies than ever from around the US and Canada plus numerous fans from around the world. But we wanted to make it special for everyone as well so we decided to open up the last two days of the event to ALL VW’s.

Detailed planning is just now starting due to the COVID-19 Virus, but we have locked in April 3rd with the speedway which will give us access to the infield for a real celebration including a judged show and the ability to run laps and have pictures taken in front of the world famous Start/Finish line.

This is simply the first notice of it’s kind so that everyone can put it on their calendars and start saving a few dollars so that you can participate as well. This will be a non-profit event and we have already coordinated with other shows in the area such as No-Dough which is also normally held in April to minimize conflicts.

The details of the event will be handled by the Executive Board, but we will need help with the execution of this event. If your club would like to participate, please contact Gail Love at [email protected].
