Just keep in mind also, HJ is coming, I'm not just coming in my GLI. Thumper by no means is a camera hog. she'll be there but gladly hide from the lens for the group shots as to not kill the sea of round cars. :D She just wants to come play on the dragon and show some bugs her taillights :p
As for any other NON-beetle cars that my come I think the same should hold true. participate in everything EXcept the group photo, the group photo should be all the cute little round things. lol

On another note, she didn't spring a last minute project on me, but she did decide on a major project to be done to HJ before TOD....:rolleyes:;):p

I'm gonna step back from this thread for a while, cause this whole thing about the squares is getting me irritated.
Nobody said anything about them joining our group photo... the one square that's coming that I know if is NOT trying to steal any glory from the nB's.
He's just wanting to bring his car to run the dragon, simple as that.

No one has a problem with that! Don't worry! ;) I don't think anyone cares if there are squares in our pics, either. I think what people are trying to say is that they want pictures of just all the NBs first just because you've got to admit, there's nothing like a pic with a ton of different colored NBs placed strategically in a pleasing pattern. :heart: But of course we'll all want group pics including whomever joins the fun whether they're square, round, triangular, octagonal...but I draw the line at hexagons!! :mad: None of those!! I hate them! :lol:
No need to get irritated. :kiss: I don't think anyone meant any ill will by anything they said. Some people were just under the impression that this was solely a NB event and when they were told that was not the case, they were cool with it. It's very hard to read people on the internet so people misunderstand other people ALL the time. You should know that NB owners (most of us anyway) are usually last to discriminate against any other car owners because we sure as heck get discriminated against enough ourselves! :(

The ToD and what it's all about

I guess it's time for me to chime in here regarding what this event is all about. To refresh your collective memories, go to page 1 and look at the artwork created for this event. Clearly stated, "A new beetle event", "ToD new beetle cruise", "A newbeetle.org event". So what is the ToD, Roswell, NBEast all about? The new beetle, period. While I have no issue with an Org member who has another model of VW and wants to be part of the group along with their NB, that's great and I think they should be able to attend but ride the tail of the pack of nB's. I personally don't want to see this new beetle GTG flooded with other VW models. And specifically NO OTHER other marques.

If a non Org new beetle owner wants to join us but has no desire to become an orger member, please refer to the 1st paragraph, and please do all you can to get them to share this experience with us. While sponsored by the Org, it is afterall a new beetle event. I've tagged a few nB's here in Aiken this past month with Org & TOD info. While having them join our little online community would be great, having them share in the experience is more important. From that contact, they may find they want to become active members.

I look forward to seeing all of you next May.:) Some sooner ;)

Good points by all. And I think Ames, um, I mean Amy:D, put the icing on the cake. Tamika, I think we're all coming from a good place and aren't in a rage about Sir Steve's Square attending. I remember Him mentioning bringing the GLI at the maiden voyage TOD- I was cool with it. I believe the one Jetta attending will be the exception to our GTG and not the shape of things to come. This event will forever be a New Beetle event. I think the orgers are showing a little beetle pride is all; Wilky's Jetta will have it's rightful place amongst the VW line up..... somewhere:lol: Just kidding. I think i'm babbling and am overstating the obvious, so i'll shut up.

While I "kind" of see your point, it's kinda sad. How many threads have we seen over the years about other VW owners not appreciating the NB. Or not talking to NB owners at GTGs, etc., Or just on how NB owners feel like they don't fit in at VW events. So it kind of bothers me to see the NB community doing exactly what it complains of the VW community.

When did the newbeetle.org start sponsoring events? That's news to the moderators and admins!

:D

It isn't a show for multi models for the same marque. It's a new beetle cruise and GTG, plain and simple. When I want to commune with Rabbits, R32's and Passat's, I'll attend a VW show and be happy to be dissed

I guess it's a "southeast" region sponsored event. My bad. You guys are SO on the ball.
