We are 19 days out from meeting Friday, the 23rd, in Poteau, Oklahoma. Participants usually arrive around 6:00 PM or so. Most of us are staying at the Days Inn. Ana, Tim, and baby Holley will be down the street at the Best Western. In past years, we've had supper at Western Sizzlin Steaks, but I'd be open for other choices. Saturday morning, we get up around 8:00 and have breakfast, probably at McDonalds or the Continental at Days Inn itself. After breakfast, I suggest that we pick up sandwiches at Subway to eat at some stop on the cruise. Then we head to the car wash, where hopefully, any locals with Beetles will see us and join in. We then depart for the Talimena mountains about a half-hour away. We'll end up in Mena, Arkansas afterwards and take a faster highway route back to Poteau. We usually go to Braum's when we get back for burgers and ice cream. Next, many people go the Days Inn hot tub. Somewhere in the mix, I've mentioned that I'd like to park the Beetles for an hour or two and have an informal "show." I'm open to ideas, and it would all depend on how early (or late) we get started Saturday, unless....we could do this on Sunday before we part ways. Some people do the run again on Sunday. To my knowledge, we have:
Mike Levy
Ana Hanmore
Antoine De Hon
Jason Diamond
Randi Dawson
Tom and Lisa Reich-Arnall
Patrick Sills
Bill and Shirley Jinkins
Bobby Ferrill and Sean Mack Page are "maybes."
If you feel so inclined, come and join us, or if you're located further east, Back of the Dragon also takes place that weekend. October 24-25, 2015.

If u do move it to November just please not the first weekend other then that's whenever ?
Still plan on making this gtg but with Holley now ? Pat I hope u don't get to mad if Holley makes me miss Roswell this year I'm hoping and praying somehow it will work out. I know u miss me?
I'm much better now and snapping out of limbo. Another Orger got a very positive reply from VWoA in regard to our Beetle, so if something doesn't happen where I get screwed out of my vacation time, everything is still a go for me for both Roswell and TSD. Ana, as Holley will be only a few months old by October, I have no problems at all if you & Tim wish to bring the GTI instead of a Beetle. I know a 4-door would make life a lot easier.
I'm thinking I will bring the GTI! Since Tim or my mom won't let me drive I've been letting them drive my GTI with me in the back with Holley?? lol yeah I'm letting others drive my car but I'm not getting in a two door right now
Antonie saying take Laycee we're see but the baby seat all set up in the GTI. I have no base in Laycee.

Passat are huge cars I got a loaner from vw and it took me a few days to get use too then Tim almost bought one
So Tim talking about leaving the 22nd in case anyone shows up early and cause traveling with Holley will make the drive a little longer to feed and change her. Still undecided which car I kinda want to take Laycee she could use the drive
