Come join us for the 21st Annual VW Turkey Run Fundraiser! The Show is FREE for both cars and spectators. Raffles, Music, Eddis & Sons Food Truck, Bouncy House for kids.

As many of you know, fellow OG OCOD'er, John Boswell (40) passed away last December of congestive heart failure while waiting for a heart transplant. John left behind his wife Molly, and two children Jack and Mary. All proceeds from the show, including Tee Shirts, Stickers, Posters, Raffles, etc will be donated to Molly Boswell for Jack and Mary.

John designed our original OCOD Oil Drip logo, our HeyHo logo, and several other Turkey Run designs. He moved to Philly and designed our Dripfest 1 and 2 designs. On many forums he was known as thehecticskeptic. In person, you may remember his Scarface/Al Pacino tattoo on his forearm.

So this year's Tee/Poster design is something very special. It's a hybrid design combining John Boswell's Dripfest 1 design and Arian Buhler's design. Arian has been designing our Tees/Stickers/Posters the last several years including Turkey Run, Mind your Pints, Bulli Brigade, OCOD, Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, and GnR.

This is a fundraiser so please feel free to SHARE this and spread the word. Once printed, we will be selling Tees/Posters ahead of the show and day of show.

More show info will be posted separately that will include Camping, Hotel info, Friday gtg, Aftershow and Sunday events.
