***As most of you know, the 2016/17 rain season we got in the northern part of the state wiped out a bridge along HWY 1 through Big Sur, and has made passing through impossible for the 3rd year in a row (the first year was due to fires). Until recently, the bridge was not going to be open in time for Treffen 20, but the latest updates from Cal Trans officials put it right in the realm of possibility! We're monitoring the situation, and will finalize plans for this day as late as possible, giving it some time to see what happens with the bridge. Fingers crossed!

A olympic swimming pool and water park right down the road from the campground. And multiple bars, restaurants, and hot pools right off main street. Were very happy to host VW's from multiple states including Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and of coarse Idaho.

August 02, 2018 - Camper Jam Canada
Golden BC, Canada
Facebook Twitter

Might as well start the conversation.
CJ2018 is gonna be celebrating it’s 10th year
The last 3 years it’s been held on Aug long weekend just south of the thriving metropolis of Golden BC. I found out about these guys back in 2012 on YouTube, and they were basically a small group of Albertan VW Bus owners who wanted to gather together and camp. They had a dream of creating a large gathering of buses for Canada’s west. I attended my first one 2014 in Drumheller. 20-30 buses were there, camping on the edges of Ab’s version of the Grand Canyon. It was awesome, wild horses, tornados, and spectacular views. I traveled +700 miles to attend.
Thanks to social media, it has grown and the past few years we are seeing 70+ buses in attendance. Recent gathering have been getting buses from Sask, QB, Wash, Org, Ca and even one from over seas. It’s grown with live entertainment in the evenings, local breweries in attendance, games, vendors and food trucks.
It’s a great family event, and since it’s their 10th anniversary, they are expecting over 100 buses. It’s gonna be epic.
So, I post this early, so that you can plan your holidays around this awesome event. Don’t miss it. Tickets are on sale now online

Lower Mainland/Vancouver BC, USA
Facebook Twitter
August 10-12, 2018 - Great Canadian VW Show Weekend.

It's the 27th Annual Great Canadian Show, bringing all sorts of VW's together from all across North America.

Friday Night August 10th, it's the DVKK Strip Show at Mission Raceway, sponsored by Buny's N' Bugs who this year host a camping night at Mission Raceway track. The Zundfolge club sponsors the always fun Stock Motor Challenge, seeing who can do the best in their stocker motor get down the 1/4 mile.

Saturday Morning August 11th, it's the first annual LGK Poker Run, starting at Mission Raceway! (for those who camped or would like to make an interesting ride in) It then finishes at the JP VW Surrey/Strictly German Pancake Breakfast. It all begins at 8am at the track, where you get a playing card and are sent to the next location... where you'll get another card. Collect more cards along the route and the VW with the best poker hand at the end wins a great VW Prize! No skill involved, just a drivers license and a bit of luck!

Saturday August 11th from 10-1, it's the Strictly German gang hosting their annual free Panacake Breakfast at JP Volkswagen Surrey, which is a fantastic way to start the day! Lots of space in the JP lot for the VW Show N Shine, with lots of coffee and hot flap jacks on the grill!

From there at 1pm, it's the All VW Cruise led by Zundfolge on a creative route around the scenic Lower Mainland, ending up in Burnaby at Open Road VW.

Saturday night it's time to celebrate everything Hawaiian at Open Road VW in Burnaby as they host Hawaiian night. Truckloads of sand are brought in, so bring your sandals and appetite with our special guests the Kahiko Kula VW Club. The tunes will be going all night, along with the Waikiki BBQ food truck supplying the eats. Wear your best (or worst) Hawaiian shirt and join right in! Open Road VW has plenty of space to show off your newly completed project, or bring it along in progress as some fantastic VW's fill the showroom and lot.

Sunday August 12, it's the Great Canadian VW Show with the largest show and swap in Canada! Photographers from all over will be in attendance and are always looking for
VW's to grace various magazines... With the viaducts coming down, it's likely the last year at Concord Pacific for the show, so come celebrate all types of Water and Air cooled VW's, campers, buggies and things. As usually happens, you never know who will show up with boxes of NOS parts to swap! Westjet will also be raffling off two tickets to anywhere their planes fly, all in support of Firefighters Without Borders, who do amazing work in our communities and around the world!

As always, this couldn't happen without the support of the Victoria VW Club, Okanagan VW Club, Bulli Boys, Dub Allstars, Strictly German, Zundfolge, LGK and DVKK.

August 31, 2018 - September 03, 2018 - Buses By The Arch (BNNTA) #33
Mark Twain Lake, Missouri
Facebook Twitter

"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #33"

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

Friday, Aug 31st, 2018 through Monday Sept 3rd, 2018 (the entire Labor Day Holiday weekend!)

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 33rd "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 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 #33" will be held rain or shine over the long Labor Day holiday weekend, Friday, August 31st thru Sep 3rd, 2018. 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 and "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 are planning another communal gathering for a pot luck dinner. So if you would like to join us for that, please do your part 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 item(s) to donate as door prizes, please 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 campsite 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 launch 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 choose to 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 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 #33" campout on Friday, August 31st thru Monday September 3rd, 2018 near Hannibal, Missouri. Please see the website below for lots of photos and information and a link to a Google Maps program to find your way to BNNTA campground.

"Buses Nowhere Near the Arch #33"
Indian Creek Recreation Area, Mark Twain Lake, MO

Directions:

From Monroe City, MO:
Take US Route 24 southwest approx. 6.5 miles.
Turn left (south) onto State Route "HH", (WATCH FOR "BNNTA" SIGNS)
Proceed almost 1.75 miles, turn left onto first paved road. Monroe County Road #581. There is an "Indian Creek Marina" billboard as well as a BNNTA event sign at this turn, then proceed a little over 3.5 miles into the "Indian Creek Recreational Area" and watch for BNNTA signs on the right for the turn to the "Group Use Area"; then follow the BNNTA signs into the "Group Use Area".

Welcome to "Buses Nowhere Near the Arch"! We'll see you there!

Back by popular demand, camping for this event is once again available to our group at the Watkins Glen State Park. Camping is also available at the Watkins Glen International Race track for the VW group.

This event is scheduled during the US Vintage Grand Prix race at Watkins Glen Race track. September 7-8-9. That weekend is very crowded in town due to race enthusiasts and the races at the track. Friday afternoon will be difficult to get through town due to road races on the old track on the city streets and county roads, which go through town and up through the State Park route. So from noon to 6 or so will be difficult to traverse the town and get to the campground.

We have two options: Camping on the race track or camping at the state park.

Camping at Watkins Glen State Park
No reservations needed and pay when you show up.
We have access to the Onondaga Village loop. Sites 155 to 203. Two vehicles per site are allowed, so buddy up and make friends. Brand new toilets will remain accessible for our group. I will also reserve the Iroquois Lodge, just in case we want to do a group together meal of some sort. SORRY NO ELECTRIC SITES

Camping fees will be managed by the Watkins Glen State Park – not me. We will be able to have 2 vehicles per campsites. Should run close to $25/night

No frills or stress this time. Unless someone volunteers to do it. I am only coordinating the camping arrangements at the State Park and also at the race track.

Camping at Watkins Glen Race Track
The Glen race track has set up a special package pricing for our group. There is a brochure with the details posted on the LiMBO site and you must call and coordinate the camping with Rob Roessel (607) 535-3351 [email protected] ... be persistent he is busy running around the track.

This package provides the happy campers with a camping spot for the entire weekend in Camping Area C. Two vehicles per site, and access to the entire track, pits, car shows, vendors and parade laps Saturday night after the Vintage racers.

For anyone camping at the State Park, for the cost of $40 per person you will be able to go all day Saturday to the race track and participate in the parade laps on Saturday night.
