      Looks like it's coming up on that time again. Time for the annual Niello Ranch Run weekend. Those that made it up in years past know just how fun this event is. From the SacWater-sponsored fun rally Friday night to the various events spread through Saturday and the final event, the CHP-led, non-stop caravan from Niello Volkswagen to car show at the picturesque Ride To Walk Ranch, this weekend is not to be missed. As in years past, this event 100% benefits the Ride To Walk foundation.

      With the ongoing budget cuts, the folks at Ride To Walk can use as much help as we are able to provide. The Ranch Run website is up & running, with updates to be made as they come. If you have any questions, post 'em up & I'll do my best to get them answered. This is a great event for an amazing charity, and you don't want to miss it. Sacramento is not that far of a drive & the event is one of the premier VW shows in Northern California. If you come out for it, you won't be disappointed,

      Just got what amounts to the official press release on the event, so I'm adding it here.

      This event gets bigger and better each year. Plus the car show is at a great place and the caravan from the dealership to the car show, keeps getting longer and longer each year.

      Ladies & gentlemen; today is the last day to pre-register for the Ranch Run. If you don't sign up today, you don't get a goody bag, meal tickets or your 'free' shirt. If you plan on participating, this is the way to do it. The ten-day @ coming up & Weather.com has it at a mostly sunny 71 degrees at the high, with 0% chance of rain. As always, the weather is changeable, but so far, it looks great. If you haven't already done so, let's sign 'em up. This is a great event & those who have been in years past can attest to that. Let's make this one the best yet.
