Planning to head up early Friday a.m. to get a good spot. Hoping to leave the tent at home and be sleeping in the bus this year!

For those of us without a bus or good camp gear, I stayed here last year and was really dry. Laughing .. Its cheap but for $35 It was better than nothing. It is right next to the entrance..

We got a room at the motel 6 or whatever it is at the entrance just to sh,shower and shave. Who knew it would include sleeping. A single will sleep 4 pretty comfortably as long as you put all the chairs in the bathtub.

If you've pre-registered, thank you! Also, if you're not camping this year I have all the hotel info. I'll be getting all this up on the website soon, but wanted to put it here too.

Our host hotel this year is the Arbour Inn & Suites (formerly the Comfort Inn). This is across the street from Camp Jordan. It's newly renovated with in room wall safes, 40" flat screen, mini-fridges, new furnishings, the works. Also they have a really large parking lot so if you're bringing a trailer this will be your best choice.

Rates for the Arbour Inn & Suites are $79.99 for a regular room (king or double bed) and $87.99 for a suite (king or double bed). You save 20% off the regular rates.

To book, call (423) 893-7979 and be sure to mention Bug-a-Paluza for your discount.

You can also stay at the Motel 6. This is located right at the entrance to Camp Jordan, so it's the closest you can get (without camping in the field of course). Room rates for Motel 6 are $32.99 for a single (1 person) room and $44.99 for a double (2 person) or king room.

To book at Motel 6, call (423) 894-1417 and be sure to mention Bug-a-Paluza for your discount.

Both these hotels have supported our show in the past and we are pleased to work with them again to bring you great rates. If you have any problems reserving a room, please let me know and I'll get in touch with them to get it straightened out for you.

They aren't doing pre-registration for camping this year in case it rains again and the field is off-limits.

Due to changes in our contract with Camp Jordan Park and our efforts to streamline and improve your experience at our show, the Scenic City Volks Folks would like to inform everyone about some changes to camping at Bug-A-Palϋza.

Camping in the fenced in field:
* Due to the possibility of camping field being closed due to rain, we will have no pre-registration for camping this time. If available, camping in the field will be on a first come, first serve basis.

If the field is closed due to rain will the gravel lot be available for camping?

Yes, the RV lot will still be available at $10 per night per site. I wouldn't worry too much about the field closing completely though. In the past ten years at Camp Jordan we've only had really bad rain twice. The only reason the field would be completely closed would be if it was literally underwater (it's happened before during other parts of the year). We just have to say this because ultimately it's the city's call on whether or not the field is open.

East Ridge is mostly concerned about turning the field into a mud pit if the ground is wet and too many cars are driving in and out. VW bugs and buses are usually light enough for this not to be a problem. But you get people with pickup trucks and trailers and stuff constantly going in and out and it can quickly make a mess.

That is why we ask people not to drive vehicles in the field unless you are camping in them. If you have an extra truck, trailer, car, whatever you can park it in the parking lot across from the field. That will help Camp Jordan and it will help your fellow campers by leaving plenty of space available.

I am pleased to announce an expanded food menu for Bug-a-Paluza 14! This is something that's been requested over the years.

Our food is prepared and sold by the Ronald McDonald House, our event beneficiary. It has always been volunteer ran and they have typically served your basic hamburgers and hot dogs. Last year, BBQ was added to the menu, thanks to donations from Sticky Fingers.

This year, the Ronald McDonald House has added three new food vendors who will bring a greatly increased variety of foods for you. Here's the tentative menu as planned:

Ronald McDonald House
Breakfast:
Biscuits
Sausage Biscuits
Sausage and Cheese Biscuits
Donuts

Hamburgers
Cheeseburgers
Hot Dogs
Chili or Cheese Dogs
Bratwurst
Cheese Nachos
Chili/Cheese Nachos
Chips
Candy
Cokes and Water
Coffee and Hot Chocolate

Vendor: Jalapeno Corndog
Regular, Jalapeno or Vegetarian Corn Dogs
All Beef Hot Dogs
Funnel Cakes with or without toppings
Kids food: Derby Hat with choice of hot dog, grilled cheese, or PBJ with potato chips or animal crackers and a drink
Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
French Fry Baskets
Battered-made Chicken Fingers
Bottled Soda or Water

Vendor: Brick Oven
Cheese Pizza
Pizza with up to 3 Meats
BBQ Sandwiches
BBQ with Chips and Drink

Vendor: 4th Day Ice Cream
All Vanilla ice cream with toppings: hot fudge, hot caramel, fresh strawberries, butter pecan, oreo and pineapple
Kiddie Cones plain or w/ topping
Cup of Ice Cream with or without toppings
Waffle Cones
Root Beer Floats

All of these vendors have agreed to donate portions of their proceeds to the Ronald McDonald House. We hope you will enjoy the expanded menu for 2012!

No band scheduled this year, one of our stage sponsors that normally covers the cost of entertainment has not been able to donate as much. We have decided to keep it simple this year and concentrate on having the best car show, swap meet, and campout we can.

Saturday night we will have our traditional drive-in theater, probably with a Herbie movie.

If you're in the Atlanta area, there's a cruise being organized to the show. Details here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5566261

We are happy to announce master pinstriper Von Hot Rod is returning for the show this year as well.

Also if you're looking for something different to do on Saturday night, Coker Tire in Chattanooga is hosting a free, open car cruise-in and they have invited everyone. In fact they've promised a special section designated for VWs. So for anyone interested, we'll have details and directions at the show and probably organize a little cruise. It's from 4-9 PM. If you've never been to Coker Tire or downtown Chattanooga then you might enjoy it.

More information on the Coker cruise-in: http://www.facebook.com/events/318555664857504/

Participation in the cruise-in is free and voluntary of course. If you prefer to hang out at Camp Jordan all night, that's fine too! We'll be having a mini drive-in theater after dark, currently on Facebook we're running a poll to see which movie we will show: http://www.facebook.com/questions/10150649821502500/
