October 10, 2020 - Rallye Rare-Air
Pearson Park, Anaheim, California
Facebook Twitter

The Vdub Hub, in association with The Vintage Volkswagen Club of America and Rare Vintage Air Car Club, hosts the first annual "RALLYE RARE-AIR". The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 10, 2020. At this time, we’re withholding the actual location and route details until we get closer to the Rallye date. What we can disclose is that the event will take place in a very picturesque and scenic location, North of Los Angeles county, and should cover approximately 50-60 miles.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the uncertainty of the Coronavirus and potential circumstances beyond our control, this event may be postponed or canceled at any time. Anyone officially registered will receive email updates on the status of this event. You will not lose your place in line once you have pre-registered. We ask that ALL participants respect social distancing guidelines and the safety of others by wearing protective masks and following County and CDC protocol.

The event was originally limited to 100 Air-Cooled only vintage automobiles, but due to an overwhelming interest in drivers wanting to participate, we've increased the registration list to 200 automobiles. The event will now include any make or model, such as Volkswagen, Porsche, Corvair, Citroen, Fiat, Tatra and NSU Prinz, as long as the motor is air cooled and the car pre-dates 1976 (there or about).



We'll attempt to capture the spirit of traditional Euro-Style Rallies but on a smaller scale. Drivers will receive their official Rallye Rare-Air numbered license plate for the front of their cars and official Rallye number for their door panel.

To participate, each car interred into the Rallye Rare-Air 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.

The Rally Rare-Air will take place through an undisclosed scenic route in Los Angeles County, California, and last the entire day.

To register: Go to the link at https://www.thevdubhub.com/rallye-registration and fill in the online registration form.

Interested in becoming a sponsor? Please email Eric Goodman, President of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America, [email protected]


FAQs:

Is there a registration fee? Yes. Depending on our sponsorship participation, you can expect to receive an email request for a participation fee for approximately $50.00 which covers a free lunch for (2) Rallye participants, (1) door panel Rallye numbered graphic, (1) aluminum embossed Rallye license plate and a swag pack of various items.

How is the Rallye 16 inch numbered door panel graphics affixed to the cars? We first experimented with a magnetized graphic, but later discovered that cars with too much body filler, or fiberglass body panels, would not accept this type. Can this potentially harm the finish of the car? Yes. we've made every effort to explore numerous material options, including static cling graphics, but ultimately settled on a low-tac vinyl graphic. We can't guarantee that this graphic won't harm your car's painted finish, therefore, it's up to the discretion of each car owner to apply the graphic or not. The Vdub Hub, it's organizers and affiliates can not be held liable to any damages to your automobile as a result of the application of this graphic.

Can any automobile participate in this event? Only vehicles with air cooled motors are allowed to participate. No water cooled vehicles are allowed. Your car must be considered "Vintage" or "Classic" or "Historical", and should not be manufactured after 1976, there or about that time.

How many people are allowed in my car for this event? You must have a minimum of two people, (1) driver and (1) navigator passenger. Your $50.00 event entree fee only covers two people. You are allowed to bring as many people in your car, that is legally allowed, but they will have to pay for their own meals.

What if we have a breakdown during the Rallye? Our main sponsor, Hagerty, has agreed to have a support vehicle available for our participants on the day of this event. Cellular phone service is intermittent on our Rallye route. Certain areas of the course will not allow your mobile device to connect.

Is this a race? Is speed a factor in this event? The Rallye Rare-Air is based on skill, timing, and navigation, not speed. Everyone who participates in the Rallye is expected to follow all State and County driving laws and regulations, including posted maximum speed limits. To participate, your vehicle must display current registration and meet all safety standards outlined in the vehicle code handbook. All drivers must have in their possession a current DMV vehicle registration and automobile insurance, and valid driver's license, on the day of the event.

If the event is canceled or postponed, will I receive a refund? Yes. We will honor a complete refund, only if the event is canceled.

"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.

"Buses Nowhere Near the Arch #35"
"group campground" inside the Indian Creek Recreation Area,
Mark Twain Lake, MO

Directions:

From Monroe City, MO:

August 08, 2020 - COVVC Volksfest 30 *CANCELED*
Pataskala, Ohio
Facebook Twitter

From the COVVC Board:

After several months of on again / off again possibilities for Volksfest 30, we are with much sadness announcing that this years event will not be held.

Negotiations with Watkins Memorial High School and also Licking County authorities have determined that an event of this size greatly exceeds their maximum gathering criteria. With additional restrictions from Watkins, we ultimately had no choice but to cancel for 2020.

With that being said, the COVVC is still having monthly gatherings, with safe social distancing practices. We encourage everyone to watch the COVVC website and Facebook page for upcoming club activities.

The entire COVVC would like to thank everyone that has been involved with past Volksfest’s (Volunteers, venders, show car participants, and spectators), and we look forward to Volksfest 30, just one year later! Mark your calender now, August 14, 2021!

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.
