      Bumping this old thread to see who's around in Gainesville.
      I've lived in Gainesville last 25 years, currently have a 2015 night blue mk7 GTI, owned a mk4 GTI and mk6 Jetta in the past.

      I figure I'm finally going to have to sign up for facebook then....lol. Glad to see others around. I'm getting a little long in the tooth but I want to put some VWR springs on my mk7 later in the fall when it cools off some and I get time off from working.

      Euro Tripper 5 Tickets are still available. Get them at eurotripper.ticketleap.com

      Ticket needed for any Euro to be part of the event. Regardless of Mutts Nuts. We have lots of room for those not trying to compete and also those interested in competing for trophies but didn't make Mutts Nuts.

      Ticket covers all your passengers.

      We will not be accepting cash at the gate. Ticket system is targeted to stay open, but please do all of us a favor and get your ticket now for a smooth event.

      Euro Tripper 5 update:

      We are now going to allow entry by cash(no ticket) at the gate. After final review with the security, concerns were raised about wether enough fans knew tickets were required.

      So we are now allowing cash at the gate. The price at the gate is $30 and includes a $5 raffle ticket.

      Purchasing a ticket online instead is significantly cheaper and smoother entry ($20). The ticket system stay open. We highly encourage you to use the online ticket method instead of cash at gate.

      Cash at gate customers will also not be able to be counted in the Best Club trophy competition, since we have no data for cash sales.

      Last post before the event. Euro Tripper 5.

      The BBQ is Friday at the same venue as car show. Your event ticket gets you into both.

      The drive on stage went up today and it looks amazing! Must see.

      The venue is in perfect shape. Massive space. Nice soft grass.

      Lots of vendors, food, bmx trick demos, animal rescue, amazing raffles, DJ, and more.

      Online event ticket is $20 and still open. Will stay open.
      If you chose cash at gate, it will cost $30 and includes a free $5 raffle ticket.

      Www.eurotrippershow.com
      For complete information.

      See everyone there.

      You might try Jeff at Volkswurks. They have a pretty good rep and only deal with VW.
      Are you in Gainesville?

      I do! We meet at the top of the Southwest Rec Center parking garage every Thursday, and most days the cord comes out with us too. Feel free to swing out and we can mess around with it!
