      I'm sick and tired of watching the Colorado scene slowly whither away. I'm tired of the he said she said bull crap! I want to be able to show up to a giant parking lot full of Volkswagens and audis and share my passion with people who are interested in the same thing I am. I don't want to hear anymore vw union this or metrodubs that. I don't want this scene to be divided anymore, it's holding us back so much from our true potential. We have a bunch of sweet cars, shops, and people. A few years ago I loved where the scene was. We were progressing at an amazing rate. But now that some people had to get their egos involved, (not just talking about one or two people) it's completely collapsing the scene. How about instead of trying to steal people from one group to the other why can't we all come together to create one group? I don't care if you don't like a few people in one group or the other, man up and get over it because your affecting more than just yourself and that one person, your affecting the entire group. This has gotten out of control and enough is enough. If your tired of the drama and you just want to be in it for the cars, please come out to the non club affiliated meet out in boulder. We meet at 7pm on the 29th street mall behind panera bread. At 8pm we caravan out to buffalo wild wings at hwy 36 and mcaslin blvd. thank you

      LOL, says the guy with MD stickers all over his car.. For hating clubs so much you sure do rep one of them pretty hard. We started working toward a solution a long time ago bro. Have you not seen the joint BBQ's and drives to Vegas? Or maybe how all of Colorado is parking together IN Vegas this year? Or here where one of my chapter presidents offers parking to you and YOUR CLUB http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...-Participants-!! I don’t see you asking MD to make their sat night meet non club affiliated?? Why not?? Clubs have meets that’s how it works, doesn’t mean we cant do joint events as well.. If you guys want to make one big group that’s fine too.. VWunion is always welcoming new members.

      Cool Story Bro

      Lol chad I don't have any club stickers on my car and when you did see my car I had one md sticker on it. This is the kind of stuff I'm talking about, thanks for showing everyone a prime example as to why we all cant just get along. Egos. You always have to put your name on everything and you act like you gave your Saturday meets away. But in reality we turned it into an escape from all of this stupid club drama bull**** that you won't let go of. Drop the ego bro and maybe this scene will have a chance.

      Also we're parking together as a Colorado group because a few of us that are sick of the drama messages Brandon and asked him if we could all park together because if I remember correctly your the one that asked to park alone. Hardey is one of the main reasons we're parking together. Not you.

      Hmmm pretty sure I started this thread as a peaceful one looking for cooperation from everyone. Why do I feel like this is turning into personal attacks from someone who doesn't even know me?

      You know what? Your right and im sorry for the outburst.. Lets go ahead and set up a ALL EURO non club affiliated meet on sat evenings at like 6PM someone think of a good location on the north side of town around Arvada so its central for everyone. No clubs no drama just dubs

      Your really that butt hurt over losing a gtg where like 4 people showed up, non of them being you. We all know there's no scene in boulder. I've lived here pretty much my whole life an there's maybe like 10 cars max that are enthusiasts cars.

      I always hate seeing things like this because it's a huge double standard. one of our new members ran into some metro dubs guys at a speaker show about two weeks ago and had never even heard of metro dubs before that. they treated him terribly, made fun of his car made fun of his stereo system even though he competes as like part of his living and is sponsored by some major sponsors. As soon as e actually turned his system ON they shunned him and moved to another area of the show!!! now he doesn't have a very good opinion of metro dubs just because of those people. at any of our get togethers we have never treated any metro dubs guys badly. we've never shunned anyone we've only tried to welcome them into our meet and into anything that we're trying to organize - in the meantime you guys make it seem like we are the devil and like it's all our fault. I don't understand how come your members cannot be nice to everyone and then turn around and say " all we want is everybody to be unified".

      Well said Heather, we had a couple of MD members at our BBQ on Sat.. They were welcomed with open arms. I was pretty sure that the club/club drama was near an end. Mikey figure out a location for the all euro no club/drama meet on sat evenings and let me know.

      Lol okay so maybe that's two of the metrodubs members that didn't like a union members car. For that I apologize but that's not how all of metrodubs is. I feel that both the metrodubs name and the vw union names have been trashed and no longer are respected by many. Thus the reason I feel like we need to have one or no groups but i doubt that will ever happen seeing as how some people care more about they're egos then the scene and everyone in it.

      Why does it have to be Saturday evening? Why can't we have one in the metro area at a neutral time and place so were not stepping on anyone's toes?

      Let me know man.. I do agree that one big club would be awesome.. but almost all of my members would never join a club he is running and im sure MD members feel the same about me. Thats why i would agree to one big club if we both step down

      Mikey I totally agree. It's usually the same 2 or 3 guys from MD that treat people like crap, NOT the whole crew. I don't know if I know you personally or have met you personally, but I do get along with most MD members. I even get alon with Baker OUTSIDE of metro dubs, I just strongly disagree with how he acts as the leader of MD. I think a unified group would be fine but not under Baker. There would have to be some huge changes in leadership to keep things unbiased between BOTH crews if we ever hope to unify things.

      *edit: I believe this because many md people disagree with chad and many union people disagree with baker - there won't be unification if the leadership doesn't change hands.

      Sweet. Love those dogs. So like I said, I'll moving out of CO soon, but I think you guys should def just make one big Colorado group and maybe have a commity run it instead of one individual person? Idk just a thought..
