VW Night at the Tiger Drive In

Post by bumblebee1969 on Thu Aug 15, 2013 8:10 pm

VW Night at the drive in. Okay we are going to have our second drive-in camp out on Sept. 14th. It will be at the Tiger Drive In in Tiger, GA. Just south of Clayton on your way to Lake Rabun area. Tom the owner has opened it up to us if we want to have a parts sell/swap during the day and then we can camp there that night. Again the cost will be $10.00 for adults. Kids ages 4 to 11 is $5.00 and kids 3 and under and pets are free. There are a few things we can't do and one is have a campfire or charcoal grill. He will keep one of the restrooms open for us when they close. I have invited other VW clubs and folks to this so I really hope for a good VW turnout. There will be a double feature and I don't know yet what will be playing. Thanks guys for the support and if ya can make it come on. I know I am forgetting something so just ask me if ya have a question. Tell all your VW buddies to come over and lets have a good time. Here is their link. http://tigerdrivein.com/index.html

Everyone is welcome.  Last year we had 30 to 40 VWs show up counting the parts swap but only around 13 of us stayed and camped.

This is a family friendly event but just as if you were at any public event a low profile is always best.  Red cup low key.  I just don't want any problems since the owner has been so nice to let us use the drive in.  Also the movie is open to the public so we wont be the only ones there.

It is kid friendly so if the kids have bikes to ride the drive in is a nice area for that.  There are some swings and a slide there also.

I will have a goody bag for the kids that come.  I was really pleased at how the kids loved the whole drive in experience last year.  Many had never gone to one.  Starting next year drive ins must change over to a digital projector. A $60,000 change over I am told.  So it may be the end of the drive in here.  Crying or Very sad

I will be at the drive in around 4:00 that Sat.  Last year we started early for the parts swap/sale and it was just too long of a day to me.  If anyone has some parts to sale bring them.  The grill/concession stand will open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie of course starts at dark.  Show up early if you want to get a good spot.

Coming up this weekend!  I got some fliers handed out last week in N.C. and S.C. so I am hoping we will have some VW folks cruise in and hang out with us. The movies showing will be "Despicable Me 2" and "Mortal Instruments". The weather should be great.  It will get in the mid to high 50's Sat. night so bring a blanket and/or something warm.  (If your camping with us you probably have the blanket thing covered).  I will be there around 3 p.m. so come on up to the drive in.

This was a fun event! I'm glad I found out about it. I came up to Helen, GA from Chattanooga for the Bavarian Volkswagen Cruise and then Leslie told me about the campout so I came to check it out. Great facility and probably around 30 campers showed up. It was nice to meet some of you there and I look forward to next year. I took a few pictures...

My daughter's birthday was Saturday. A pig, a drive-in, bubbles, funnel cake, ride in a '56 corvette, they sang happy birthday to her over the loudspeaker, she got to turn on the projector, and got to hang out with 20 other bus bus owners.

I'm already trying to figure out how I'm ever gonna top it for her next birthday.

Yes it is on!  Sat. Sept. 13th.  We will start meeting up around 3 p.m. like we did last year.  Same rules apply.  The first movie will be..http://www.dolphintale2.com/  The second movie is still not curtain.  One of the production people from the "Circle the Wagen" movie has contacted me about showing that movie.  Just have to see if we can work out the details with the theater.

Movie line up "Dolphin Tales 2" followed by "If I Stay" both rated PG13. I have around 15-20 that plan on coming. It will be a great night under the stars.
