    When I noted above perhaps Kombi club could organise an event, I wasn't suggesting Roy do it. Rather than just throwing around feedback on a forum why don’t you get involved or start your own event. Get out from behind the keyboard and have a crack yourself. Making note of the short comings or potential room for improvement online most likely won’t result in change.

    I did get rid of a lot of VW stuff at the swap meet, although the profits disappeared when the wife found someone called Ruth Stanton and I've ended up with Tupperware and a very small step ladder. Maybe Joanne bought the ladder so that she could wash the Kombi?:lol:

    All VW's are good in my book! I think it is the purpose of these online forums to express opinion and feedback from events (good & Bad) that way suggestions can be taken on board by organisers.

    Could someone please explain to me what the term "Wasser" means??

    German for water (wasser = water, luft = air)

    Kombi Club used to do Run to the sun.
    was a large event with a comprehensive cross section of the 'traditional variants' with a small amount of late smallVW.

    hasnt been done lately due to the stupid cost increases by council.

    included camping which was a major part of the socialising.

    Not everyone showed their vehicles.
    Everyone enjoyed the wide mix and what others did to their vehicles but were confident enough not to feel they had to conform.

    I would make the following observations from a few years in the 'scene'

    Not everyone wants to show their cars. they are happy to park in the carpark.

    Most appreciate a good 'mix' . usualy to the more reconisable beetle and kombi and their variants such as buggies,trikes,rare vehicles. this particularly applies to the general non vw owner public.
    silly entry prices gets attendance resistance.
    not everyone is anal about their VW although some can be.:)
    good swap stalls and trade stalls are appreciated. as is some good food.

    Kombi club does organise a few events.
    They are usualy more social based but obviously its still around ,but not restricted to, VW.
    For the most part its a matter of someone deciding on doing something and putting it up on the forum.
    All who want to join in are more than welcome.
    The major one at present is the Bus Stop at easter.
    Run to the Hills and other smaller events.
    We strongly support all other clubs events and shows as part of the VW community.

    a bit of feedback should always be considered by organisers as it gives a heads up [positive as well as negative] as to peoples reactions/need for change, before a change in attendence numbers does.

    cheers
