Year end events!

Our last PTO/MVWE Cruise-in will be Wednesday, December 12th from 7-9 pm at The Diamond Restaurant in Charlotte.  Please plan on bringing a toy to donate to the Salvation Army for the Magical Toy Drive.  We will also have the important task of deciding on the date of our end of the year club party (to be hosted by Missy and I this year).  We are looking at December 28-31st - please provide some feedback as to which evening works best.  This will be a Pot-Latch affair with bonfire and beverages...more details to follow.

  • This Saturday morning is Cars and Coffee held across the street from the NC Music Factory (Matties Diner) from 7 to 10 am.
  • The Circle Yer Wagens VW show and campout is this Friday-Sunday at the Sevierville County Fairgrounds in Tennessee - this is a huge show and well worth the trip!

  • The Fast Times at Farmington Show is Sunday October 21st all day at Farmington Dragway near Mocksville, NC - this arguably the best VW show in NC and should not be missed
  • The Oakboro October all classic car Cruise-In is the last Friday of the month (October 26th) from 5-late - this is the biggest such event in the region and is well worth the trip.

  • Also, something else to keep in mind from a club member:
