The Great VW Cross Country Endurance Race is intended to be for ALL types, makes, models and years of VW’s (including trikes and kit cars) and is to be a competitive controlled-speed endurance road rally on public highways.

The course for 2020 will be approximately 1200 miles over 4 days and there will be two distinct routes/races, one from the West Coast (around Albuquerque NM following Route 66) and one from the East Coast (around Myrtle Beach SC going through Washington DC and the Great Smokey Mountains), see website at https://drluvflorida.wixsite.com/the-great-vw-cc-race .

We need 50-75 cars from both coasts to enter in order to make this race a reality. If we have 150 cars (75 running each race), there will be cash prizes totaling $9000.00 given away for the winners of each race. Final registration is needed no later than December 1, 2019.

June 13, 2020 - June 14, 2020 - Niagara GermanAire Show
Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
Facebook Twitter

The June Jitterbug ran for many years, but sadly ended in 2019 due to medical issues by the organizer. Niagara GermanAire picks up where the June Jitterbug left off. This show will be at the same park, still in June, but on the weekend BEFORE Father's Day. The organizers are well known in the air-cooled VW community and we're eager to bring new life to this show.
Saturday will see the traditional cruise around the scenic Niagara Falls area. This will take approximately 3 hours. After the cruise, participants can relax at the host hotel or the campground and make some new VW friends while getting reacquainted with old ones.
Sunday is the show and swap meet. This year we will be adding a VW bus photo booth, in addition to more vendors offering clothing, art, and other VW related goodies. There will be an engine blow contest again, food trucks, games and activities for the kids, hood pull, push drags, and new this year- a LARGE gathering of air-cooled Porsches.
Mark your calendars now because you don't want to miss this show!!!

September 04, 2020 - September 07, 2020 - Busses Nowhere Near The Arch #35
Mark Twain Lake, Missouri
Facebook Twitter

Howdy Everett,

Well, here we go again! Below is an event listing for the upcoming events column on theSamba.com. Thanks again for adding this to the list and for doing all that you do for all of us VW nuts out here!

Bill Bowman


"Buses Nowhere Near The Arch #35"

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

Friday, Sept 4th through Monday Sept 7th, 20209 (The entire Labor Holiday Day 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 for four days of camping fun. (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 and eras 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 4th thru Sep 7th, 2020. 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, 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 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 4th thru Monday Sept 7th, 2020 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.

It’s time to start preparing for the 2020 Type 3 Rally! This will be the fourth California Central Coast Type 3-only driving event, and once again we’re planning to base operations around the historic Borradori Garage overlooking the ocean in Cayucos, one of the last unspoiled beach towns in California. Enjoy an epic weekend with Type 3 enthusiasts from all over California and beyond!

As with the last three Central Coast rallies, all Type 3s are welcome to attend — ’61–’73, stock or custom, restored cars or daily drivers. We’d love to see everything from Notchbacks, Squarebacks, Fastbacks and Type 34s to Brazilian Type 3s and Type 3-based buggies, specials and ratrods — anything Type 3 is welcome! There’s no cost to participate in the event other than gas, food and accommodations.

This event is limited to 100 Air-Cooled Only Vintage automobiles, so make sure to email Mark Ulves at [email protected] to have your name and car reserved on our pre-registration list. Anyone who registers after the first 100 spaces are filled can still register to be placed on our waiting list. If any of the first 100 drivers cancel, we will add drivers from our waiting list and take them in the order of the date they were added to the registration waiting list.

The Rallye begins at Pearson Park, 400 N Harbor Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92805. Officially registered participants are asked to be at this location, promptly at 7:00 am, to receive their Rallye Pack and Course Maps. Drivers, please check-in at the front entrance of the Pearson Park's Amphitheater, located on North Lemon Street.

We ask that you please be respectful of the nearby homeowners by NOT parking in any of the residential neighborhoods or revving your engines.

We'll capture the spirit of traditional European style rallies, but on a smaller scale. You'll receive your official Rallye Rare-Air numbered license plate for the front of your car, a magnetized Rallye number for your door panel, commemorative Rallye Rare-Air Dashboard Badge and Rallye stickers.

To participate, each car interred into the Rallye must occupy one driver and one navigator passenger. No solo drivers will be allowed to participate in the Rallye.

This is a competition Rallye based on driving and navigation skills, not speed. Drivers are required to obey all city and county traffic laws and posted speed limits.
