Y U Bugg'N this year.....?

Post by Attorney Isaiah Loophole on Thu Jan 07, 2010 8:28 pm

I have become too busy to do this show by myself. I am stepping down from it. If anyone else would like to step up and run it then I would be more than happy to help but I just don't feel like running it this year

I have a few ideas to link up local events up with the show to create a weekend show.... Maybe this thread can be used for ideas for the show also.

A location needs to found....!

Time is ticking..... affraid

We have the Rodeo venue here in McD off of hwy 81.
Bryce , Ashley and I spoke with a lady last year who has a parent that works with the parks and rec and said she thinks she could poss get that venue however we would need a date or dates, just a thought ask your wife if she remembers who it was.

Glenn I could help you work on this in a McDonough setting, I can poss even get NAPA to donate give aways like they did in the past. I can also talk to a trophy co. about trophys. Bryce do you remember that trophy I have that looked like a beetle, if so I can see if they are still avl.

Call me 770-914-2678 if either of you need to

Is there a reason to "NOT" do this at Summit?

Summit would be perfect BUT they won't allow any other vendors. Which is the main reason to have a VW show.

Who is this "Old Volks Place" person? Are they a member of the club? Laughing

I think Heritage park would be perfect for a show. I just wish we could find somewhere that we could set up some camping and I don't think they'll let that fly over there.

YES BRYCE MIKE AND I HAD ALREADY DISCUSSED THIS THE OTHER DAY AND HAVE A FEW IDEAS. WE DO NEED TO FIND A LOCATION. CITY OF GRIFFIN WOULD ALLOW THE USE OF THE PARK IN THE PAST...NOT SURE IF THAT IS STILL AVAILABLE OR NOT. WE WOULD LIKE TO BRING IN SOME VENDORS AND GET SOME SPONSORS ON BOARD AS WELL. I AM PLANNING TO BE AT THE MEETING TOMORROW TO PUT IN MY 10 CENTS AS WELL.

I was in need of parts last year close to the date of Y U Buggin and was talking to Lindy, asked him if he knew about it(YUB) and he didn't. He wanted to come but had a family thing and couldn't make it. He told me to get in touch with him for the next one and he would be interested in some possible sponsorship. Lets not forget to give him a call. The economy has changed so he may not be able to this year but we need to see at any rate.

I think Eric(flux) was going out to his shop that day for some parts and was picking up my parts and took him a Flyer. He put it up in his store section.

WELL AS MY LOVELY WIFE SO KINDLY REMINDED ME TODAY...I AM GOING ON VACATION THE SECOND WEEK IN JUNE. IF WE DO THIS IN JUNE IT WILL HAVE TO BE THE END, I WAS THINKING WE COULD DO IT THE LAST WEEKEND AND MAYBE GO WITH A PATRIOTIC STYLE SETUP TO COINCIDE WITH 4TH OF JULY? OR WE CAN WAIT TILL AUGUST...THERE ARE NO MAJOR HOLIDAYS THAT MONTH AND NO MAJOR SHOWS IN OUR AREA. WE NEED TO NARROW THE DATES DOWN AND MOVE FORWARD. I AM GOING TO BE IN CONTACT WITH SOME PEOPLE I KNOW THIS WEEK ABOUT BEING SPONSORS. ANYONE IS WELCOME TO BE A SPONSOR. I WAS THINKING WE COULD GET SOME LARGER SHOPS TO SPONSOR SPECIALTY TROPHIES( BEST OF AWARDS ). I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO LOOK FOR SPONSORS. WE WILL BE PRINTING SOME FLYERS AS SOON AS WE CAN AND NEED TO GET SOME SPONSOR AND VENDOR NAMES ON THERE. LETS DO THIS RIGHT AND GET Y U BUGGIN ON THE RADAR!

15: Mississippi Coast Bug Jam & Drags; Gulfport, MS
15: Charlotte Transporter Show; Charlotte, NC
16: Big Bug Shootout #6 ; Julian, NC
30: Bugout 67; Manassas, VA

June


July
11/12: Kubel Treffen Kentucky; Bardstown, Kentucky
24-25: Summer Jam 2010; Knoxville, TN
31st - 9th Annual VW MELTDOWN '09 SHOW and SWAP; MONTGOMERY, Alabama

August
22 Northern Challenge #5 ; Radford, VA (SEVWA)

September
5: Bugout 68: Manassas, VA
26: 3rd Annual Cruising For A Cause VW Run; Daytona Beach, FL
26: Bug's and Brats Hazel Green, AL 35750
26: Swoogers Cruise-In; Kings Mountain, NC

I've thought that having it at AMS would really give us some exposure. Kind of like a Nopi weekend or something. These shows didn't start off big they built a following over the years. Some may have but most did not.

Would love to get out on the high banks. affraid
