Several members have expressed interest in taking a road trip to Buses By The Bridge 20 in Lake Havasu Arizona this January.  The actual event starts on Thursday January 14th (pre-show) and ends on Sunday January 17th.


This is a bus show/camp-out.  They are expecting 500+ buses to show up this year.

I'm throwing this preliminary schedule out there to start the discussion for those that are ready for some serious driving.

A reminder that it is VW Night at the 99W drive-in today.  For those that are interested, we will meet at Al's Garden Center on Roy Rogers (depart at 3pm) and cruise to Newburg.  This should put us at the front of the line to get in.

The movies are Pixels and Ant-man.

The guys putting this show on are trying to get an idea of how many people are going to attend....

If you are planning to go - please answer here.   I will be making the trip down in the bus.  I'm not sure if I will leave Friday night or early Saturday morning.
Projects - VWs only / Otto - 69 Squareback project
Because I need more projects to fill the little storage space I have at the house - we bought a 69 Squareback this weekend. Bought it from a guy in Puyallup (president of German Toyz) and it will be brought down at the end of March on a trailer.

On November 19th, 2011 - the first Dubs & Donuts was held.  The idea and motivation was to encourage people to drive their VWs at least once per month throughout the year.  For over three years we've had an informal gathering of VWs on the third Saturday of each month at Tigard Plaza. 

The number of attendees varied from just a handful of folks during the coldest months to over 45 cars this past weekend.  We've policed our own people, kept the trash picked up, generally left by 11am, and spent money with the local businesses.  It was more successful than we ever imagined it would be.

However - for the past year or more - there has been some ongoing tension with a business owner in the plaza that was not happy with us being there.  The business owner has repeatedly petitioned the property manager, taken pictures of our cars on the property, and attempted to intimidate us by words and actions.

Unfortunately, we have become victims of our own success.  The record turnout this past weekend ended up being the tipping point.  The Tigard Plaza property manager contacted me this morning to inform us that we can no longer use the property for this gathering.

As you can imagine, finding a suitable replacement location could take some time.  While we search for a new location, please consider attending the Portland Cars & Coffee gathering that happens between 8am and 11am every Saturday behind the Starbucks at 15350 SW Sequoia Parkway in Tigard.

Please share this post!  Finally - with three years of Dubs & Donuts behind us - please share any pictures you might have of the event for all to enjoy!
