Hello Bug Club Members, (Updated 4/17/20)
Dust off: Reshedualed to May 17th. As we get closer to the date we will work with with the Maine club to make sure the park is going to be open, and its safe to have a gathering.
Volks-Fair: I have been watching what other shows and events across the country have been doing. As of today, most shows scheduled through May are advertising that they have been canceled or postponed. My thought is that we still have time before we have to really think about doing anything similar. I’m working on small things right now that need to be done, but I’m holding off on spending money on advertising, class signs, banners, and fliers until we get a little closer. I talked to Gerry about the trophies and we decided to wait as long as possible before ordering them. We figured that if by chance we don’t have trophies in time, we would run the show as planned and mail out trophies once they arrive. I think that considering everything people will be understanding. We are in a tough spot for show sponsors, we only have 2 right now. I am going to create a Facebook post looking for sponsors with the clause that if we cancel the show completely for 2020 all sponsors will receive a full refund. A positive note is that if things clear up and our show happens on schedule it will likely be the first show of the year, so turn out should be great.
2020 events: We will get out and do things this season, it’s just uncertain when the group season will start. I added a few cruises to the website with “TBD” dates. I’m working on a run up the coast with possible stops at a couple of car museums up in Maine and I’m really excited about the idea Ron C. had for the covered bridge tour. I’d like to plan as many things as possible so that once we are on the road, we have good options. If anyone has any ideas for drives, the show, or anything else your thinking of please don’t be afraid to speak up, everyone’s thoughts matter and its all of the members that make the club what it is.
Please reach out if you need help in any way VW or not,
A side note, if you’re on Facebook you may have noticed I started posting an old VW or Dune Buggy ad each day to give people something to look at and hopefully give them a temporary distraction. If you’re not on Facebook there is a window at the bottom of our site that allows you to scroll trough the posts without being a Facebook user.
Membership is open to anyone who simply appreciates VW's and only requires a $15.00 yearly membership fee to help support the club. Good times, new friends and laughs are included for free.
If you have any question please reach out [email protected]
