x-post: Denver GTG - Saturday, January 28th
« on: January 16, 2006, 06:30:21 PM »
"...Alot have been asking for it and it's time to bring it back..."

The first large Denver GTG of 2006 will be on Saturday, January 28th, 2006 @ 4:00pm.
Time to start the 2006 year, and why not kick it off with your fellow CO VW enthusiasts and friends.

It'll be at Dave + Busters on I-25 and Colorado Blvd.
We'll meet on the top level of the parking garage for D+B and UATC.

Directions:
* Follow I-25 to Colorado Blvd.
* head south on Colorado Blvd to Buchtel Blvd.
* Now take the second left (which you drive by the parking garage) and then an immediate left into the parking garage.
* Around and around (SLOWLY!) until you're at the top; we'll be meeting there.
* It is free to park for D+B and UATC.

There will be a ton of space available, we should not have a problem at all.
Bring cash; for those not familar with D+B, there is something for everyone: food / video games / bar / etc.

PLEASE come with a positive attitude; many are meeting each other for the first time.
We don't anyone to crash the fun in the first of the year... that's never good!

NOTE There will be no reservations set; this will be a "free-for-all" event more or less.

HEADS UP! Remember that D&B has somewhat of a age limit. 21 to get in, no questions asked. If you're under 21, you *have* to be accompanied by someone over 25. And with that, there's a 4-to-1 ratio (4 underaged persons to one 25+ adult). So, you can get it, but I would make some of-aged friends quickly. However, I've been there under the age and if you act well and play some games without goofing off, they won't have a problem.

NOTE: Also, there will be a few OBDII VAG-COMs and other scanners being brought if you need a scan. Just ask and we'd be glad to help fellow owners out.

Questions, concerns, comments? Feel free to IM me!
Some do arrive a little early (15 - 20mins) in the lot to meet and greet.
Please post if your going; I'll do my best to keep track and update a list as it formulates.

So, wasn't there a police and building owner issue the last time we met there?

LOL.  yeah, I'll TRY to restrain myself.  I guess I shouldn't try the Transporter II A8 jumping out of the parking garage move.  :lol:

Have fun kids!

Honestly now. Why do we keep doing D&B?

-Problems with security and Denver PD either ushering people inside or off the property. Many people that show up actually want to stay outside and look at and talk cars.

-Age limit. (at 34 this does not bother me) but I know that some of the people that want to GTG are under 25 or want to bring friends, siblings etc that are under that age. (I know they can get in with an adult, but why make it a problem)

-Once everyone goes inside it is imossible to tell who is "in" the group and who is not. Can't tell what they drive, talk to them about their car etc.


I just think we should look for alternative places.

Here are some suggestions.

-Parks- city/county/state etc.  Some have LARGE parking areas and they are intended for "gathering" and hanging out.

-Other restaurants that have large parking areas or cater to automotive activities. Sonic for example. Or coffee shops where people can get a cup-o-joe and come back out to talk cars.

-Outside some tuners shop?

$0.02

Other suggestions?

I hear you Cole, most of them don't even go into D&B.
And there's always the odd group of hoodlums that ruins it for everyone else (bikers, ricers, etc.).

I honestly think it's getting stale.  Maybe having it every other month instead of monthly and at a different venue each time.

I'm passing this weekend -- I have to catch up on work around the house as usual.

Cole, as you know this was posted on the Vortex, but wanted to throw this up since I've been hearing little complaints.
Also, as an update too, I haven't gotten one working suggestion for a new location / area during the cooler months.

I've been all ears if suggestions have been made.

For these large GTG's we need a large facility to accomidate us all.  I can tell you from experience, Sonic or a local semi-fast food chain doesn't have the large parking space needed for 30+ cars.  However, if you do know places in / around the Denver metro that would be a good place for the group, sounds good.

Be as a reminder, many who do the large monthly GTG's want more than just a lot.  That's why there's D&B or other larger entertainment places to do just more that just "stand around"; some want to partake in more activity than that.  Also, with the weather not being the warmest yet, being indoors sounds great.

Now, can we do a bowling night?  Indoor go-karts?  Or another place around town?  Sure!  But, I need suggestions be brought up.  I do appreciate you input; I know it's hard to please all but I'm trying to accomidate location, activities, and limitations all at once...

-Outside some tuners shop?


I never been approached by employees from local shops around town.  And with that, I've only asked Mark @ SCR Performance (Loveland) back in the day.  I think showing up to a shop un-announced would be somewhat rude.  But, if we were able to coordinate with a shop a few weeks in advance, that's also an excellent idea!

Again, good idea for when the weather turns to the warmer side to have a B-Y-B-B BBQ... Most parks you need to purchase or rent time for outdoor barbeque establishments from the city.  So, if there's interest, we can do it... it just takes a little more set-up and some funds upfront.

If you've got more, I'd be glad to hear / read them.
