Volkstock #7 Aug 23,24,25 NEW DATES!!!

Post by Hobug on Mon Jul 15, 2013 12:46 pm

NEW DATES!!! At the request of our host and hostess we have backed up Volkstock by one week. Hopefully this will better accommodate those who had schedule conflicts.

The 7th Annual VOLKSTOCK weekend is fast approaching. Make your plans now to be there.

We start Friday evening August 23 and continue till Sunday around lunch time. You know the drill. Cool

Soooo, who has a project they want to work on? Don't be shy; it won't happen if you don't speak up. We need to know as early as possible so we can plan the order we will work on the projects and placement in the shop.

You are certainly invited. Anyone is welcome, but it is best to let us know you are coming so we have enough food. Friday night's dinner is provided as is Saturday night's cookout.

We don't have many projects lined up yet, so feel free put your name on the (short) list if there is something you want to do to your bug.

If you have never made it to any of the Volkstocks in the past, you should try to come to this one. You don't have to stay long if you don't want to. We work on VWs, swim, eat, and tell lies. (maybe drink a beer or two) drunken  Many of us stay the whole weekend, but many more just drop by.

We do all this only 20 - 30 minutes down 316 from Athens.

203 Cole Circle
Bethlehem, GA 30620

If you know you are going to need parts, please call Clyde so he can bring what you need.

Actually I'll probably be outside for most of it this year. I think we're painting my chassis and cleaning the tranny.
I'll be inside for installing the brakes though.

I know the new dates are the same as Tannehill Bug Blast. We tried not to overlap, but it can't be helped.

Afternoon guys. Not new to the VW scene, but I'm a rookie air cooled guy. just picked up a 62 rag. We have some plans on sat. But I may be able to swing by on Friday evening. Always good to meet some local knowledgeable folks. Sounds like a good time -Jamie

The big weekend is fast approaching so do make time to buy the supplies you will need.

In general we always need plenty of paper towels, brake cleaner, hand cleaner, carb cleaner and other disposable things I can't think of right now.

Jacks and jack stands are always in high demand. Maybe a creeper or two and fans certainly help.

Towels, swimsuits, sunscreen, snack food, beverages, etc.....

Even if you can only stay a short time, make plans to stop by.

I'll bring a jack and jack stands, my torque tool for flywheels and axle nuts. All of the special tools I have for vw's. do I need to bring any food or drink?

Bring any adult beverage you may want. We will have waters and we usually have plenty of food. If we come up short Publix is close by.

We all head over after we get off work on Friday. I'll probably arrive around 6:15. You don't need to bring anything and don't worry, we can put you to work.Twisted Evil 

This is as much a social event as anything.
