      Calling NorCal .:R Owners,



      After experiencing the awesome SoCal R32 Fastivus GTG and Trackday last weekend, I realized there was a lack of community and gathering of R owners up here in NorCal. My buddy Todd (DjScooby22) that I rolled down to Fastivus with both agreed, it would be awesome for R owners in the bay area to group up every once in a while, whether to hang out, do a spirited mountain drive, coordinate a trackday at Thunderhill/Infineon/Laguna Seca, or even do a VAG-Com day (anyone want their cluster needles lit up or door chime disabled?) These are all perfect excuses to get out and meet fellow R owners.



      We were also thinking of creating set of NorCal R32 stickers in tribute to our brothers down in SoCal who put on these amazing Fastivus gtgs and trackdays for all these years now. The goal is to build a good group of R owners to hang out with. We feel branding ourselves with stickers is a cool way to represent our region. Here are a few rough designs that I’ve come up with, we are not here to sell stickers but to simply promote camaraderie. Whether you want to rock these or not, doesn’t matter, it’s the social aspect that we look to build.



      Between Todd knowing about 10 R owners and with us sending PMs to those in LoyalSage’s thread, we could have a decent group of 20+ owners for our first GTG if and when the time came.



      ****1st NorCal R32 GTG Completed!! JULY 16th 2011 ****
      What: NorCal .:R32 GTG and mountain drive up and back Mines Road starting in south Livermore.




      I will be using this thread as well to keep everyone informed.
      Please PM me your email address as well, so I can keep everyone in the loop on future events.

      Stay Tuned and pass the word if you have anyone else the in R community who might be interested



      Thanks! I hope this is a start to a huge R scene in NorCal.
      Here is who we have so far!

      i like the idea, but i always wonder why SF bay area is "nor cal" as it's pretty much the middle of the state... apparently, i'm not the only one...

      i'd eventually need to get my lazy @$$ around to a meet for the light up needles.

      Welcome Alvin!

      Diablo925, Wente Winery is a fantastic idea for its just 5-10 mins from the well known mines road that twists all the way up to Mt Hamilton! Perhaps meet in livermore at the starting point of Mines rd. Take a spirited drive up then back down same way hitting Wente as final destination for lunch!

      Dunno but you guys, but ever experienced 10+ R's rolling through the mountains? The exhaust note that we all so love times 10, now thats a symphony.

      Let's make it happen folks, represent!

      Any love for a stock R32 driver?

      There is another R32 in Napa that I ahave seen once or twice, but I don't drive around the bay area too often in my R32, so I rarely ever see anyone in one.

      I'd love to come out to an event / drive someday.

      Maybe we could do something at a local track too, like everyone meet up at Infineon raceway during the Indy car races or something and take a drive back into the city from the track or something.

      My name is Jared. I live in Napa.

      I'm 26, have had the R32 for just about 2 years now. Before that it was a 2003 GTI vr6, before that a 2003 1.8t Jetta GLS, and before that a 1998 GTI vr6 DE.

      i also currently have a 1987 16v scirocco.

      its fair to say i have a volkswagen fetish.

      sadly i wouldn't be willing to put any stickers on my car. id sport them on my rocco tho and get funny looks from people who knew what the logo is!

      I might be down for a track day / sticker if you get this built up enough.

      Garden variety GTG, not so much (about 12 hour drive each way)!

      MkV, my first name is Todd, last name is my handle, out of Seattle.

      Guzman can vouch for me, we dodged baseball sized rocks together at Spring Mountain.

      For those of you who have never been up HWY 128 from the 101 to Hwy One on the coast, it is one of the best roads in the country! I have driven it hundreds of times in my R and never get tired of it. A great mix of twisties and straight-aways. The exhaust sounds amazing echoing off the redwoods. Hwy 20 on the way back through Willits back to the 101. Just dropping the idea of a great day drive.

      guys,

      i went ahead and mapped out all individuals who provided a location that included a city, you can find this map here:

      http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0...9,4.927368&z=8

      visually this should help us see where everyone is, so if you want to be added to the map, give us your city



      Click the link for full map, some of the R32 locations are cropped out of the above screenshot

      My name is Michael.
      I have a pretty much bone stock T-Red R32.
      Except for the flapper and 5-way brake light mod, green sensor, and grounding kit.
      First owner, only 33,000 miles.

      Diablo925, Wente Winery is a fantastic idea for its just 5-10 mins from the well known mines road that twists all the way up to Mt Hamilton! Perhaps meet in livermore at the starting point of Mines rd. Take a spirited drive up then back down same way hitting Wente as final destination for lunch!

      Dunno but you guys, but ever experienced 10+ R's rolling through the mountains? The exhaust note that we all so love times 10, now thats a symphony.

      Let's make it happen folks, represent!

      Matt: I realized we've been doing this pretty much since 2005 without getting organized, which has gotten us to the state we are at right now; quite threadbare. I'm in.

      I'll check up with Zane, Finn, Chang, Wyatt, Zagi, Ralph, Sean in Sacto and a few other of the OG moes and see if we can get this number up to 30.
