A Weekend Event featuring : VW Show --- Swap Meet --- Campout --- Cruise ---
Dinner Get-Together
Hudson, Michigan Friday, June 7 -- Saturday, June 8 -- Sunday, June 9

Hey Volks Folks!

Announcing a weekend get-together for VWs of every type -- air- and
water-cooled, vintage and new, stock and custom and everything in between! It's
a new event, a car show, swap meet, campout and social meet-up for VW
enthusiasts in the Midwest region.

This is an event not sponsored by any one VW club but rather for any and all VW
clubs, organizations, and individuals who'd like to promote and participate in
this weekend festival celebrating everything and anything VW. While it is being
pitched to VW enthusiasts in the Midwest, VW enthusiasts and their VWs are
welcomed from everywhere, far and wide!

The Midwest VW Jamboree will feature acampout for VWs on Friday and Saturday
nights. On Saturday there will be an activity cruise through the beautiful south
Michigan countryside, including stops for lunch and area attractions, plus an
evening dinner gathering and live entertainment. The big show and swap meet will
be on Sunday. The event will also have a non-perishable food drive to benefit a
local food pantry for the needy.

The city of Hudson, Michigan in the extreme south central part of the state,
just over the Ohio/Indiana border, has graciously offered to host the Midwest VW
Jamboree show at their beautiful and spacious Thompson Memorial Park, in walking
distance from the city's downtown. VW Clubs wishing to participate are
encouraged to bring and set up their club banners, signage and a small booth to
represent at the show. The park has a large play area and baseball diamond for
those needing a break from the VWs (hard to imagine, but you never know!). Also,
dogs, cats, even giraffes are welcome as long as they are leashed and cleaned up
after (Please note: giraffes must be wearing some article of VW-themed clothing
in order to be admitted to the park).

Attached is a descriptive flyer for the Midwest VW Jamboree and a
pre-registration form for the swap meet. All that's requested of you is to
distribute the flyer and pre-registration form and promote the event within your
club...and come on out for what promises to be an awesome VW get-together! Of
course, a little bit of help collecting entry fees at the gate, directing cars
into the show area and making sure the park is kept tidy during the weekend is
going to be needed, so any and all volunteers will be welcome. After all, this
is YOUR event!

Apart from camping in Thompson Memorial Park on Friday and Saturday nights, the
city of Hudson has a small motel within a mile of the park. More extensive
accomodations are available in nearby Adrian, MI. Stay tuned for more
information about lodging and the Saturday activities and Sunday show. For
