I would like to start off by explaining this event, “WusteRallye”, fully to everyone. This event was created as a way to get all the Colorado based VW & Audi clubs interested in attending Wuste2010. Just because I am the person behind the scenes on this event does not mean that WusteRallye is, was or will ever be a MetroDubs.com event. This time last year there was Edition 719 and MetroDubs slated to attend Wuste2010. So I got the great idea to follow in such great steps like the DagBall Rally, GumBall, Snowball, and similar to get all the cars in Colorado a fun joint excuse to go to Wuste. It did not and still does not matter what club you are in, or even if you are in a club. All I wanted was to see 30-50 Colorado cars go to this great event.
In 2010, WusteRallye was presented by Dubs Along the Rockies, and then sponsored by GoFast Sports and Beverage, along with the two clubs going, E719 and MD. We had close to 30 cars join us for that drive. Guess how many cars were NOT in a club? About 1/3 of them. A group of cars from Pueblo, Colorado came up and joined the drive. No club affiliation what so ever. We all got along and it was a great time!! We ended up all hanging out in Vegas during the show and in between.
This year is no different. WusteRallye 2011 is just that. A DagBall styled rally that it's only intent was, and is, to bring the Colorado scene closer. Not have one club, or another, draw a line and divide the scene. That is not what any of us want. I admit that I got a little carried away. I personally did not define the difference between MD and WusteRallye.
I have been hearing from every side of the coin, “Why are there two or several drives headed to the same place?” I am also confused on this matter. However, I have listened and I feel there is a great solution. Lets all forget about the clubs!! The only way to move forward is to put aside what ever petty differences there might be and just join up and roll together. For crying out loud, this is about cars, not personal egos. Just like the main event, Wuste2011, this rallye is for everyone, no matter who or what.
So, I am personally extending an invitation to Chad and the VW Union members, along with Rocky Mountain B5, Audizine, DubZentrum, Edition 719, DCI, and whatever other club is there to join forces and go out to Vegas as one big group. I want people to join this drive if you are NOT part of any club. Why can't we all be a part of a huge group of “This is what Colorado has to offer” or something a bit more catchy..
Who is on board for a drama free, free cost and free fun on a great drive to a great event?? Lets all sit down, redefine WusteRallye, and try to get a game plan that is equally enjoyable for every VW, Audi, and Euro headed to Wuste2011!!!
