      Euro Tripper is back! The inaugural event was a big hit, so we are keeping it going. Euro Tripper 2, will build on that success with some expansion and some updates.

      Www.eurotrippershow.com


      Same location as last year, but we have rented more of the arena grounds.


      What is Euro Tripper?

      1) Charity event

      2) Euros, euros, euros. Air-cooled as well as water-cooled!

      3) Relaxed, chill event, more focus on socializing and less focused on winning anything. (yes, we do have awards and classes however).

      4) Building the Euro Community in our area including local vendors.



      Its a great social day. See some great Euro vehicles, cool people, talk with your local vendors, and do some charity work.


      Charity: We are focused on local animal shelters. The show will make a donation to a local animal saving shelter focused on rescuing from kill facilities called Brookes Legacy (http://www.brookeslegacyanimalrescue.org/). We also collect donations the shelter can use (blankets, food, supplies, etc).

      Animals ready for adoption are also at the event.



      Didn’t make Euro Tripper 1? Check out the Canibeat event coverage to get an idea of the event.

      We wanted to let the "Goodie Bag" for the pre-registers by 12/31 be a pleasant surprise, but it seems alot of people would prefer to know now.

      So heres the deal again:

      If you pre-register by 12/31 (show or display) for the Event (not Club ET) you will get:

      -Reduced priced of 15.00

      -A free Tank tank with the cool design from Like Hell Designs. (this is not the official event t-shirt and does not replace any orders for Official Event Tshirts. These will not be available at the event either. Only to pre-Registers by 12/31.

      - Other goodies from our vendor partners TBD.

      After 12/31, preregistration will still be 15.00 until Feb 1st, but the Goodies will not be includes.

      After Feb 1 and at the event registration will be 20.00

      ******Thank you*******
      EuroTripper 2 has grown over 275% from last years registrations!

      Congratulations to all who took advantage of the free Tank top promo. We got a ton of orders in and will start printing them to be picked up at the show.

      Since the Tank Top was so successful at driving pre-registration, we are extending the promo until this Monday Jan 6th. If you missed out, you have a couple of extra days.

      After Monday, Pre-Registration will be open until Feb 1st at the 15.00 price.

      After Feb 1 and at the event, it will be $20.00.
