Volkstock is a weekend long tech 'day' if you will. Due to the generosity of Ken and Inge we have garage large enough to hold 4 VWs at a time.
We help each other with any needs our VWs have. From tune-ups to carb adjusting to engine removal or installing. If it needs to be done, we do it.

We also eat well with plenty of food provided and a cook-out Saturday night. Many of us camp or spend the night in a spare room. There is also a nice big swimming pool to keep things fresh and cool.

Check out some of the past Volkstocks. http://www.athensvwclub.com/phpBB2/album_cat.php?cat_id=70

Please feel free to bring your Thing and come join us! Cool

sounds like a fun time. I am actually playing Saturday night with my band at Wild Wings in Athens. So I might not be able to drive the THING down. But I would like to come by during the day and check it out. There is a lot I am trying to learn. PM me the address of you can.

Rather than PM the address, I'll post it as others will ask too.

203 Cole Circle.,
Bethlehem, GA 30620

Are you sure you are playing at Wild Wings in Athens?  scratch   Our Wild Wings went out of business a couple of years ago.

OK! I know where Buffalos is. I'm sure it will be great. We'll look for you to stop in at Volkstock. Very Happy

wish I could bring the Thing, as it needs some adjustments. But just getting more familiar with the engine and all will help me. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Here is the link to the thread about Volkstock on the Athens Club site. There is new info on food and lodging reservations. There are plenty of sleeping choices, all at no charge, but you do need to reserve your spot.

We still have time/space for a couple more projects.

WOW! What a weekend! Biggest Volkstock ever with 30+ people in and out thru the course of the weekend. Thanks to everyone who attended. If you went away hungry or still needing work done on your VW it was your choice. scratch We had tons of good food and plenty of people assisting with projects. A big thanks to Pat for all his work on my bus. I could never have done it.  cheers

Check out our thread on our site for links to pictures. More pictures will be posted over the next couple of days as we all recover.

The biggest THANK YOU goes to Ken and Inge for opening their home to all of us. It takes special people to welcome that many folks!

sorry I missed it. With our music gig in ATHENS it was just too busy for me to make it and bring my Vdub.
Glad it was a success!
