Title: Dubs Along the Rockies Winners from RMCB5!!!
Post by: 92UrS4 on July 26, 2004, 12:15:31 PM
After a day of highs and lows, no not the show, the temperature...brr, wet and cold for the first half of the show.  The rest of the day was good temperature wise and I think a lot of us got sunburned by those overcast skies.

Ok, without further adou, here are the RMCB5 members that won yesterday:

B5 Passat
Madigan - Best of Class
aowhaus - 2nd Place
UberGrrl - 3rd Place

Audi A6/RS6
gietl - Best of Class

I only won because no other A6s showed, so it was by default, but hey I spent 8 hours detailing my car Saturday so it was show worthy ;)

The turnout this year was tremendous, many many thank yous to edition719 for all their effort in putting together such a great show.  Huge props to the show sponsors who has tons and tons of stuff to give away and funding for the show.

Also, huge thanks to the RMCB5 members that could make it and to the folks on AW for making a large Audi showing. I think after DATR and depending ont he turnout at Bug-in nest year may present many a show opportunity for local and national Audi owners.

Now I don't have any official number or info but here is what I knew around noon yesterday:

Total cars: ~165 (I know at least 15 more came in at the close of registration)

Out of staters: California, Texas, Utah, AZ, NM, and I think, I think there was a rumor some folks from Oklahoma were going to attend but I'm not sure if they did.

Regardless of where they came from, the fact that a show in it;s thrid year pulled so many folks from out of state as well as the post show publicity that will be coming soon it's clear that Dubs Along the Rockies is going to be a huge draw in the coming years.

I am working on downloading my pictures and should have what few I took posted when available.

Here is a winning picture:

If you have pics... PLEASE send them to me in high res... we are trying to collect as many as possible before we send them out to VWFixx.com, Infront and PVW. We also want to try and separate the pics so that no two publications have the same pic. Full credit will be given to all photographers, so PLEASE send me your stuff!

scott@wasserwerx.com  or send a CD to 854 Desert Circle, Fountain, CO 80817

It's great to hear the positive feedback.

Thanks guys and gals for supporting this event..as participants and a few of you even worked at the show as well.

I don't know the specific numbers yet on registered cars...there were A LOT of people that never registered.  I believe the total number is somewhere very near 200.  Not bad in three years considering all of the out of staters that rolled in.  Now hopefully they tell all their buddies what they missed and they bring some more next year.

Despite the rainy skys in the morning everyone stuck it out and had a good time.

We've established some very good contacts for support and sponsorship next year..so it can only get bigger from this point forward. I'm quickly learning that in this business it's now what you know, it's who you know that is important.

Thanks again for all the support.
