      EDIT:

      The day of the GTG changed to Sundays at 1pm to 4pm. Those that regularly participate in the GTG generally talk through a FB group https://www.facebook.com/groups/175237635903774/.

      That is why it looks like this is dead/never made it off the ground, however it still happens. So come on out.

      I go out of town for the weekend. I may be quite a bit older than most if not all of you, but I still enjoy cars and especially my VW's. Going out of town for a car show or GTG is awesome.

      I think getting together for some good clean fun is cool, but I for one am not down for doin' stupid Sh** that will embarass me or my family. I figured that getting together with others with a similar interest in VW's and the modding scene would be something that would be great to do. We can go to other events and rep our area, BBQ, and do other constructive things for our area...If this is not something others are lookin at and just wanna get plastered all the time and get stupid...I can't get with that.

    23. 10-02-2011 03:09 PM #23
      There is a post on the other (anyone in BWOOD post) I'm down with gettin together on the 7th. I think we should try and meet often in the beginning to get established and then cut it back to every other week. If we get established as a club, at some point, then we have one mandatory meeting along with other GTG's that are voluntary.

      I see clubs that meet and do their thing and have fun..ie Sofa King Euro on the Monterey area...and SAC Water, they do it right.

      I lived in both those areas, originally from SAC, but now I am here and this is my area to rep, so lets do it up right.

      This is the idea. I was part of the formation of Marin Euro so I have some experience with getting clubs together.
      If anyone is planning on coming to these meets to race or do other stupid shenanigans, do us all a favor and stay home. The idea behind a meet is just to have a good time and talk with other enthusiasts, meet some new people. I would love to get to the point where we can start having cruises and BBQs.

      I think a bi-weekly meet is the best format for a local gtg just because it gives more people an opportunity to make it out and not have to worry about making it to every single one. I think we need a better meet spot though. The in-n-out lot is usually packed on Friday nights and it looks like a local Mustang club already gathers there. I think we can try out the parking lot by the Rave Movie theater, somewhere towards the back of the lot, by the bypass. Then if anyone wants to grab some food or beer after there's BJs. I'm down to meet up this Friday 10/7 @ 7:30. If anyone else can make it post here so we can get an idea of who's showing up.


      Summary: GTG Friday 10/7 7:30PM Back of Rave parking lot (somewhere between Red Robin and Rave) Unless you guys think there's a better spot.
      This is where I'm thinking.

      Yeah this There is also a spot over by the strings resturant which is pretty empty on the back side by San Jose. Just depends on if people want others to see their car other than those meeting for the GTG.

      As long as I could get out of work on time, I'd want to show up at a GTG this Friday. As others have mentioned, I would expect for everyone to conduct themselves respectfully, and I think it would be cool if we could get a solid enough foundation for a club. But of course, we all have to get together and see what's up before we can move on to bigger things.

      As far as the actual location of the meet, I like what Eric (IJSTROK) proposed, and I think that with more traffic in that lot it would probably be a better atmostphere. Last weekend I noticed that there are more spots open by Red Robin with BJ's now being open, but if for some reason there isn't enough room we can always cruise somewhere else like the petsmart/office max parking at slatten ranch, which is always pretty empty at night.

      Also, if it turns out that Fridays aren't good for a lot of people, I really don't care what day of the week any potential GTG's happen since I go to school during the week and work during the weekend so as far as scheduling goes it's essentially all the same for me.

      I say we just meet up by Rave and go from there. If we need more space like Zach said we can just go somewhere else.

      that parking lot has speed bumps i cant do speed bumps.

      also ive been doing GTGs for a while and what ive noticed is the GTG that are away from things and the general public dot get bothered as much. the ones that are in areas with high traffic attract undesirables. those undesirables like to try and impress us with burn outs and other shenanigans (when will they learn that not all VW owners are gay and dont want to ride crotch gun on their balona pony express). then because people are acting up and the cops show up we get blamed and kicked off.

      I say we just meet back by Rave and we can decide where we want to go from there.



      So...who's planning on showing up? The rain should be gone by then!

      Sundays usually don't work so well. People either work Monday morning or schedule other stuff for Sundays. Fridays generally work better because people get off work and get to unwind talking about cars and getting a couple drinks afterwards. But if more people think Sundays work better then we can try that out.

      Successful gtgs are tough to start. You can get a whole bunch of people interested and saying they'll show up, but they never do and it ends up being only a couple cars. If you guys are really down to get this going, the best thing you can do is show up.
