DUBS ALONG THE ROCKIES

http://www.wasserwerx.com/dubshow/

July 26th, 2003
9:30-4pm

Proposed entry fee: $5

Originally I wasn't able to make this show, but now I can.  So who wants to go?

Attending so far:

ColoradoB5
Wendy Darling
Gietl
Madigan


Let me know if you plan on going and I'll add you to the list.

For those of you who are planning on going to Dubs Along the Rockies tomorrow, we are planning on meeting between 7:30 and 8am at the Burger King on County Line Road, right by the mall.  This is the BK next to Chic Fil-A.  Another caravan group organized at VWVortex is meeting at the Krispy Kreme just up the road.
 
The plan is to get some breakfast and meet up with those guys on the highway down.  I have directions to get to Citadel Mall in Colorado Springs, so I'll hand those out when we meet up so everyone knows where to go.
 
Jay is going to bring the t-shirts and frisbees that have not been sold yet, and I have stickers for Jay and JR.  
 
There will be concessions there as well as food in the mall, so bring some cash and you cameras and let's have some fun!

Ok, Amanda, I've sent you the

following via email.  Let me know if you need more.  If anyone else wants to pitch in, email me for the "begging letter" and I can send you some

sponsors to contact too...

Hey Win I will too, shoot me off an

email with a list.

I have contacted all but one sponsor

on the list, greedspeed.com has a website that you cannot get into without a password, so I will probably fax or mail them the letter. If you want to

give me more sponsors, that's cool.. I can work on them early next week.

And are we having a meeting next week? 719 has been down all day (until tomorrow) so I haven't really been able to find out what's going on

down south.

Post by: ColoradoB5 on January 20, 2003, 05:43:38 PM
Well the latest meeting was last

night and only Max (chairman), Wendy and I showed up, which is a bummer because it means Amanda could have come too, because we could

have made it earlier in the day.

Oh well.  

We are looking for locations right now, so if you know of a place (especially one where you have contacts) that would be able to hold parking 200 or

so cars and would have room for spectators etc., in the area between Denver and Colorado Springs, please let me know.

Also, hold June 22nd open and let's plan on going to the show with the whole group together.

As always, if you want to help lend a hand in any way, just let Wendy, Amanda or myself know.

Thanks,
Dub

Me me me!  Send me some names

and I'll call some people.

You said you're looking for a place for DATR between Denver and CS.  Would the DTC appeal to you?  There's a very small chance I could get

Invesco to offer up the parking lot/garage.  Maybe not the ideal environment, but let me know what you think.
Title: Dubs Along the Rockies - Colorado VW show this summer
Post by: ColoradoB5 on January 23, 2003, 05:51:20 PM
Pat, that might be an option.  Let me

know if you think you could do it!  We would be able to pay them some money for it too!

A parking structure could be

interesting...it would be nice to set up booths, and having a walk through protected form the elements.  If the sun is out, it will save us from heat

stroke like we had at the national GTG last summer.  The only problem with the garage and displays would be getting power for lights to show what

products are being offered...or views into engine bays.  With enough light, that would not be an issue.

Maybe use a parking structure for visitors and the lot for the show cars and stuff like that.

Just some thoughts.  DTC would be a great location, good for both north and south V-dubbers.

Well it looks like we have a venue: Sky Sox baseball field in Colorado Springs.  The great thing about this place is that they have great concessions, including great ball park dogs and beer as well.

Another great hing would be that admissions are potentially free, but we'll have to see how this turns out before I let the cat completely out of the bag.

What's going on with this?  Any planning? Just noticed it had been 3 months since the last update and honestly I kind of forgot about it ;)

Well, I had to back out of the planning since my sister in law is getting married that day in Minnesota!  But I just found out last weekend that she had to change the date, so I can go now...

It looks like they have things under control, so I am going to let them finish planning this.  I have let them know that I have a lot of sponsor information and to contact me for that, but I have not heard back from them...

Cool! Is there a link to any other details than what we have posted? Maybe something to get the individual planning going?

That's awesome that you'll still be able to go!

It'll be really cool if we can get a larger group and get all the Passats together and all the Audis together.

Hey JR!  Glad to see you made it over!  We have been talking (OK, so Wendy was talking...) about a GTG at Dave & Busters soon, so keep an eye peeled for that and we can all hang out and play some racing games...

JR, I just updated the date for this show, which will be at the Citadel Mall in Colorado Springs.  Due to scheduling reasons, I won't be making this show.

I am just starting to pay attention to this but is the date correct?  Wed July 23?  
If so I cannot make this one.  Got customers coming to the office that day.

Post by: ColoradoB5 on July 09, 2003, 09:37:37 AM
JR, I think I may be going to this, but I'll have to check my calendar.  

Summers are so busy!

Congratulations on the interview!  Let us know about how it goes.

I think we should all sport our RMCB5 shirts and show up en masse so let's plan it!

We should get there early 9am, and it's only $5 to enter.  I know DCI is going to have a booth set up, so we can always chill with those peops.

There are some good prizes to be had too, many of which I actually negotiated before I backed out of the planning on this... :roll:

I'm hoping to get a lot more pictures and have more than 3 Passats there.  

Let me know if you are in and we can start a DATR attendance/planning/caravan thread...

Let's meet and drive as a group...Say, Win's house at 6am? Hehehehe
Just kidding, hows about Burger King on County Line at Park Meadows 8:30-9?? That way some of us can get coffee... :D

If this is a good spot, Jay maybe do a cross post for the Denver folk? Unless of course, people are already meeting somewhere, everytime I try to plan something someone's already got me beat :x

JR, definitely, but since the show is on a Saturday, it will be hard to get everyone together.  I'm probably just going to do mine the night before.

Maybe!  I'll have to see what I have shaping up for that day...The tough thing is to get it done before the light outside runs out!

I get home about 4:30, but I can't wash my car until 6pm, then I figure wax from about 7-11 and detail until midnight...ugh!

I think I can probably join you guys...crap, that's next weekend. Hope I can wash my car by then. LOL
Jay, I still want my shirt from ya, if you bring it, I'll bring you some cashola. I feel weird supporting this show, because the planning people turned into tools and I stopped helping, but the original people are cool and I really do hope it gets off the ground...um I'll try to stay posted on the planzz.

On the sticker front, I will get my stickers from you on Saturday morning.  Where do we all want to meet to caravan?  Do we want to meet at Park Meadows with other VWers and head down?
Title: Dubs Along the Rockies - Colorado VW show this summer
Post by: ColoradoB5 on July 21, 2003, 07:49:14 AM
Jay,

We've decided to meet at the Burger King at County Line Saturday morning at 7:30 and roll down together.   I have yours and JR's stickers as well as a couple of other ones if someone wants to pick up some already made ones...

Check is fine with me, I also have frisbees if you want a 'bee for chillin out at the park.  The frisbees are $5.

I'll have all the remaining t-shit and frisbee merchandise with me.  I know Amanda is waiting for a shirt!

I get hungry half way through the day... :wink:

JR, there will be food there and it is also at the mall, so there will be a food court, bathrooms, etc...
Title: Dubs Along the Rockies - Colorado VW show this summer
Post by: 92UrS4 on July 21, 2003, 11:51:07 AM
Yeah, I'm not sure what sizes are left.  I think all the Baby Dolls were L and XL, there may be one or 2 M.

As for the T-Shirts, there are still a bunch, not sure what's left in what sizes, I  am going to add the shirts to the online store so those that want la size other than what's available can order one.  Please keep in mind the online store is a bit more costly than buying from what we have.  I know the inventory has M, L and XL, just not sure how many of each remain.

I guess I can check that out and update the Merchandise thread with what's available still.

I plan on bringing lunch, it sounds like they will have some concessions to help cover the cost of the event, like soda and stuff, not sure how much of it would be food.

Anyone know the policy on alcohol? Wouldn't mind consuming a couple beers and would hate to be kicked out for walking around with a Coors in hand.  Of course I can always conceal it...muahhahahahhahhaaa ha  ha ahem.

I guess I will meet you guys at BK, though I don't plan on eating there, will probably get some KK across the street :). Are we leaving at 8/8:30? or something like that?  I just need to determine what time I have to drag my ass out of bed.

I also need to work on my car this week and get her all shinered up again.
Title: Dubs Along the Rockies - Colorado VW show this summer
Post by: ColoradoB5 on July 21, 2003, 01:43:15 PM
Jay,

I would bring all of your merchandise down and maybe we can sell some of it.  Especially the Frisbees, but I know I would like to get another shirt, so I have a nice one around without stains on it.  No headliner mod stains or anything, but I do have that eating problem...

Last year the food and beverages were bought at the PX on the base that Scott (the organizer) works on, so he sold them at cost and they were like $1 a soda and $2 a dog.  The quality of the food was really good.  I even went back and got some dessert.  Plus, we will be at the mall, which has even more food options...

I plan on leaving as close to 8am as I can to get there around 9am.  I have yet to find out exactly where the mall is, so if anyone can pipe up with specific directions, that would be very helpful...
Title: Dubs Along the Rockies - Colorado VW show this summer
Post by: jayryan on July 23, 2003, 11:44:04 AM
I've got a friend coming up from the Springs and I'll get the directions from her...then I can post them...or just fill you in on Sat.
Eh...wax....hmph! Friday's going to cleaning the car....what sucks is that I have to park outside...I'm pretty much screwed if it rains Friday night. :roll:

So the plan is to meet up in Park Meadows at a BK and have a bunch of us drive down together? How many people are definately meeting up? It would be fun to have a pack of B5's driving down together - preferably led by someone who knows where we're going. Let me know what's up. I'm looking forward to meeting up.

Title: Dubs Along the Rockies - Colorado VW show this summer
Post by: ColoradoB5 on July 23, 2003, 02:14:08 PM
That is the plan.  I have directions and I posted a link to where I got them a couple posts up.  We keep all of the B5s together and meet up with the other southbound dubs on the way there.  They are meeting at the Krispy Kreme at Quebec and County Line...

I'm not exactly sure on the count.  The vote on the home page only shows 5 definites, but there may be more that show up are can't make it at the last minute...
