      I feel that the best thing for this scene is to get rid of the existing clubs and come together as one with a different name. It's either that it I'm out of the scene completely.

      Now.. MetroDubs events and GTG's have been huge and a great success. I am not sure why MD is getting back to basics.. having drama free fun, safe for everyone.




      just saying.
      So Ina thread DEDICATED to trying to unify the groups, you are posting messages tryin to yet again bash Union and put us in a negative light thus trying to continue the negative feelings towards Union? Good call Jon. That's exactly the point.

      AND you jut showed that you troll Union forums. That's hilarious!!!

      I think it could work. We also don't need Bakers blessing to do this - chad is down with it and I know that 99% of union would be excited about it as well as long as baker isn't the leader. Baker will NEVER step down, so it would definitely have to be a group of everyone who TRULY WANTS TO SEE THE SCENE UNITED!!

      If you build it, they will come. Lol

      chad, may i add that you divided the community when you decided to start another VW club in Denver? You had said that MD was too strict and you wanted to be free and do whatever. Well, you have succeeded in that. you are doing what ever.

      I have been in the Colorado scene for over 10 years. wow.. its been that long. MetroDubs didnt start out as a politically correct club. we were rude, crude, speed demons; sure I admit that and was guilty of that. but.. pffttt. we have matured. we have a great supporting base and the events are growing HUGE! we do have people that drive from Thornton, Boulder, Longmont, Lakewood, Aurora and even Monument to join the MetroDubs GTG every Saturday night.


      Chad, this is not a pissing match. really, I do not care about you or VWUnion. I and the core members of MetroDubs have enough on our plate. huge things that are the dominate events in Colorado. I mean look at what we have planned..




      We still have our weekly Saturday GTG. Same place and time since 2005! Why a need for chapters when we've had the best GTG for so long!!!

      Here is some information on the weekly GTGs;

      MetroDubs = http://metrodubs.com/forums/showthread.php?3247
      Facebook = http://www.facebook.com/MetroDubs


      Here is what we have been working on;
      Event: April Pulls
      Date: April 7th
      Time: 8:00am – 5:00pm
      Location: CarZ Performance, Lakewood, CO

      Description: April Pulls is a Dynamometer event started in 2006. We started this to gauge horse power and torque. There are no rewards; just fun, or a starting number to base what the gains of future modifications will be.



      Event: Kickball Klassic Invitational.
      Date: April 22nd
      Time: 10:00am – 5:00pm
      Location: TBD

      Description: Let’s have some fun and safe club rivalry and competition. What better way to get everyone involved than an invitational kickball tournament. All Euro Clubs are going to be invited to field a team of 14 people; 4 females minimum. It will be a round robin style tournament followed by a playoff system that will lead to the first ever Kickball Klassic Champions! The best part of this, well we are going to have fun and the entire family is welcome to join us!



      Event: Detail Clinic
      Date: May 12th
      Time: 8:00am – 5:00pm
      Location: Adam's Fine Polishes

      Description: The show season is about to start; we want MetroDubs member’s cars to look stunning. Why not show enthusiasts how to take care of their car for the show season. However, you do not need a show car to attend! This will be fun for the entire club, whether you own a beater or garage queen. We’ll probably follow this with a nice drive!



      Event: Summer Solstice Drive & BBQ
      Date: June 23rd
      Time (Drive): 11:00am – 2:00pm
      Time (BBQ): 2:00pm – close
      Location: Lions Park, Golden, CO

      Description: The Summer Solstice for 2012 is Wednesday, June 20th and we want to celebrate the changing of the season and the longest day of the year with a drive and BBQ. Set in the windy and twisted roads of the foothills of Colorado; the drive will take you and your family on a scenic and exhilarating journey around the best roads the Front Range has to offer. Speeds will be kept to posted limits at the most. After all, the views will be reason enough to keep everyone safe along this trip.



      The BBQ is set in the cool and shaded park in the heart of Golden, Colorado; Lions Park. We have rented the pavilion on the West side of the park. It is big and there is a child’s playground right next to it. Not to mention the most popular river to go tubing down! Bring your swim trunks, your family, and most of all your fun spirit!



      Event: OktDubberfest 2012
      Date: September 15th & 16th
      Time (Sat): 9:00am – 3:00pm
      Time (Sun): 11:00am – 3:00pm
      Location: Beaver Run Resort, Breckenridge, CO

      Description: OktDubberfest started several years in Denver; then known as Oct ‘Dubber Fest. It has since been evolved into an all German Car Shine ‘n Show in Breckenridge, Colorado. Paired up with the town’s own Oktoberfest celebrations; this show has enough weekend events to keep every German car, beer, food, and music fan entertained!



      Event: Dub’Cember Toy Drive
      Date: December 1st
      Time: 11:00am – 5:00pm
      Location: Fun City, Littleton, CO

      Description: Well, the best Euro toy drive in Colorado is Dub’Cember. Started in 2005; the goal was to just have a fun time with fellow enthusiasts. It has evolved into one the best toy drives that benefit the Children’s Hospital of Colorado. The event keeps getting bigger and bigger; with the support and help from local car clubs like Edition719 not to mention support from Avalon Motorsports. In 2011, we collected so many toys; the hospital ran out of trolleys. We had to get the big box from inside the donation center, we filled that and two trolleys!!! Let us try to make 2012 the best one to date!

      can someone please explain what i am doing soooo wrong?

      It seems i cannot defend or stand up for the members of MetroDubs or the club i have put my heart and soul in since 2005. Heather, you said above that MD members were talking $h!t, so i simply pointed out that VWUnion also talks poo.. so way to go Heather. I reaction to your slanderous post was me doing something wrong and dividing the scene.

      Stop trying to force something that will never happen..

      as a former member of MD i can give you my honest opinion.. You are the type of person that will ask for your members input but shoot it down every time. You care too much about being the biggest and best club in colorado. It is supposed to be a group thing and its supposed to be about the cars. The reason VWunion has grown so big in the last two years is because we dont stress things like that.

      Please give me an example of an idea that i shot down? I remember you coming to me and saying you are starting VWUnion as a news site with how to's.. i gave you my full support and asked how i can help.. then you switched to a VW club.. k so what.. i felt betrayed by you. I do not trust you. sorry there i said it.

      And what is wrong with wanting the BEST things? we want our cars to look the nicest, be the fastest, our hair is done, our makeup is on.. as humans, we strive to be the best we can every day. I know i do.

      Stop trying to force something that will never happen..

      But see this isn't true Jon. There's only you and a small few of MD members who do not want to get along with everyone else. In several of those texts people are saying a unified group would be nice with the exception of a few people And they give their personal reasons. You really proved nothing except that you're trying to further divide everyone.

      And "slander" by definition is unproven and/or false accusation meant to cause damage to a person or organization. Everything I've said is absolutely correct.

      heather, you should come on out to a MetroDubs GTG.. i am sure you'll be shocked at the open and welcoming arms you are bound to see at them. Just ask Luke and Ronny and well.. a handful of your other vwuinon former members..
