Sat night:
Back to camping under the stars with friends! Talking about the fun of the day around the campfire and kicking back!

PLEASE READ:
Sunday Oct 2nd 2011: We must be OFF the church property by 8:30 am , As every year we have to pack it up and leave due to the church having services that day and they need the parking area. Those dragging a bit that morning have to at least pull off into the dirt area.

That is about it! Keep in mind ....
October in New Mexico can be interesting weather wise. Hot days and chilly nights are not uncommon. Be prepared for weather changes. Bring sunscreen but don't forget your jacket. Nights can dip into the low 40's or even 30's! If campfires are your thing, please bring your own firewood, and all fires must be above ground and contained (fire pits, portable fireplaces, smudge pots...etc)

This show is all about having fun, hanging out with friends, and raising money for good causes. There are, however, a few rules.

No glass containers.
No animals off leash or in the show area.
If you bring animals, please control them, and clean up after them.
Please be mindful of other people, and don't impede their good time.
No on-ground fires.
No burnouts. Especially during the slow drag races.
Quiet time from 10pm - 6am.


Although everyone is welcome to attend, we reserve the right to remove anyone from the campout at any time (with good cause) without a refund. Please understand this is to help keep the event fun and keep it going for next year.

For more Info you can visit aaavwclub.com
Please go to Busses and Balloons Thread.

Hope to see you all there! DRIVE SAFE!!!

I am asking for some advice from the AAAVW Club about my attendance at the B and B. My name is Gert Gehlhaar and belong to both the California Central Coast Chapter of the Vintage VW Club and the Colorado VW Bus Club.
I have sold both my Yellow and White 71 VW Westfalia Camper and the 1984 Vanagon Camper. Some of you may remember the yellow and white 71 Camper for I have attended the B and B many times, Lake Havasu, and Jerome.
My questions is would the club allow me to camp with them if I bring my new Roadtrek Popular 190 Camper all the way from Lompoc, CA. The Roadtrek is not much bigger than a Vanagon about 19 feet but a little taller. I would be more than willing to camp of in the dirt or at the edge of the camping area.
Thanks for you consideration and I am looking to hear from you soon - Gert, VWracer#70
