      Club parking deadline is 1 week away. I have 1 paid club so far. If you are in for club parking I need your list and payment by 4/11/10. If you have any questions, please let me know. I would be happy to answer them for you.

      Thanks.

      Show and exhibition can be done at the show. Club must be done beforehand. Pre-reg just helps the line getting in move faster.

      Got quite a few paid now. Going to be a good year for club parking for sure.

      I will also update the vendor thread as soon as i get a chance. Got some good ones.

      Hampton Inn is like a mile or two down the road and its right behind the Grand Prix (go cart tracks)

      but there are some more cheaper shadier places alot closer. Shang ri la is a scummy little motel about 20 seconds away from the show

      i would personally like to thank dustoff for being the cause of undying stress, late nights, way to early mornings, convincing someone that 'yes, you can stretch that on that,' and putting my clients on the back burner...

      Thanks. I'll check out the Hampton. I saw that dump Shang ri la is sold out. Is there a hotel or two that is just overtaken with dubs? I'm coming from PA, first time at dust off, and want to try and guarantee a good time.

      Rain or shine. Doesn't matter to me. I'll be there. And the show must go on. It's rained every year but the first and last year. Kind of a tradition, lol.

      Some of us VW guys have older Dubs that basically came from the factory with water leaks

      MK2 = wet carpet in the rain

      O well, it's worth risking it! Rain or shine count me in.
