April 21, 2024 - Kelley Park Spring Meet
San Jose, California

The Golden Gate Chapter of the Vintage Volkswagen Club of America will be hosting their 39th Annual Spring Meet at History San Jose at Kelley Park in San Jose on Sunday, April 21 from 8 am to 3 pm. All air-cooled VW's are welcome.

All cars entering the park MUST register for the car show and MUST park in their respective class. There will be NO pre-registration for either the car show or swap. You will queue up in the bottom parking lot and pay at the gate and register your car at the club booth after you park your car inside the park. Because of park concerns with people leaving early in their cars before the show ends, we ask if you think you have to leave early that you please park your car outside and walk-in. If you would like to be a sponsor or a vendor please contact Jan Peters at email synkro.digitalspacemail8.net or phone 650-207-1950 or Rick Spohn at raspohn@gmail.com or phone 408-683-0154.

Please note there is NO alcohol, NO pets, and NO BBQ's allowed inside the park. These are park rules and must be obeyed. The park has asked us to make sure everyone packs up and leaves immediately after the show is over. This has become a problem in the past and has jeopardized our club to continue to have the show at the park.

The Holiday Inn Express located at 17035 Condit Road in Morgan Hill will be the host hotel. All you have to do is click on the link below and it will direct you to the reservation page. Enter the dates you want and it will give you a discounted rate.

June 21, 2024 - June 23, 2024 - Wetwesties Camano Island Campout!
Camano Island, Washington

Come and camp with us at one of Washington State's most beautiful campgrounds! We’ve had about 30 vans the past couple of years and hope for more in 2024!
Camano Island State Park (CISP) is a 134-acre camping park with 6,700 feet of rocky shoreline and beach. The park provides sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and offers opportunities for shellfish harvesting.
Bring your binoculars and try to spot the resident grey whale named "Patch". Also eagles in the trees, nice trails and one of the closest campouts to Seattle & the I-5 corridor.
Camano Island is about 40 miles north of Seattle and then 20 miles west of I-5.
CISP requires reservations in advance on this website:
https://parks.state.wa.us/223/Reservations
Reservations open 9 months in advance of the desired date, and CISP fills up fast, so reserve ASAP. Set your alarm for 7AM to get a great spot. If you haven’t previously reserved a Washington state park site, you may want to get an account set up in advance, as making reservations can be a bit tricky.
Saturday night potluck. If you have tables you can bring, that’ll help us at the potluck. And we love having musicians.

July 26, 2024 - July 28, 2024 - Wetwesties Rattlesnake Trailhead Campout!
Mazama, Washington

Northwest Forest Pass required ($30 available from the US Forest service and possibly available at the Goat’s Beard store in Mazama if you forget). No reservations required. This is a primitive camping area with a pit toilet but no water, no power and no picknick tables. Located about 22 miles West of Winthrop and 10 miles West of Mazama, WA. There are dispersed campsites with fire rings. There is normally a fire ban this time of year. I know of no limits on vehicles per site. The last couple miles of road is gravel and there is one short rough spot about a quarter mile from the camping area that has never been a problem for my van, but does require me to slow down to walking speed. Bring water. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/okawen/recarea/?recid=59391

October 27, 2024 - Hot VWs Drag Day
Irwindale, California

The EMPI sponsored Hot VWs Drag Day is an event held twice a year in Southern California. Geared more toward the motor head VW Junkie, the HOT VWs Drag day has much to offer for every kind of VW Enthusiast. Of course there is the action packed 1/8th mile drag racing that takes place, which on some days can attract over 100 racers at any given event. Although there is no official "car show" at this event, we do offer a preferred parking "Show & Shine" area for any VW just behind the grandstands. The Drag Day also offers a huge Swap Meet that seems to keep getting larger as each year passes. Overall the Drag Day is a fun event no matter what you like about Volkswagens. Whether you're into racing or want to catch a good deal in the Swap Meet, the Drag Day has lots to offer.
