So here we are. It’s March and Dustoff is right around the corner. OSD has worked very hard this year to make some changes to make the show even bigger and better than previous years. We have a pre-party sponsored by Banchwerks at Dusk in Providence on Saturday night. A shuttle service will be provided at no charge from a yet to be determined hotel in Seekonk to the club and back again. We are also working on an official hotel that will provide decent accomadations at a reasonable rate. So keep an eye out for that.
We also have a Mario Kart competition sponsored by OSD and Mattie VW/Audi for this year. It will cost $1 to participate and whoever is still playing at 2pm takes the entire pot. So brush up on your gaming skills and show everyone who’s boss.
Vendors have been signing up at a record pace. Many from last year are back and just as many new faces will be there for you to check out and spend your hard earned moneys at. Flea market will be bigger than ever also.
Show Car pre-reg and Club Parking is now available via the Dustoff site. Find show info there, our VW Vortex forum , and our Facebook page .
Hope to see everyone there. Any questions feel free to send an email to me at email@example.com .
All that remains of the 2011 New England show season are some burnout marks at Gardner Airport. As we say farewell, I’d like to thank the crew in Broke.Status for putting on a hell of a show and ending the season properly. The turnout was amazing, with over 1,000 cars showing, shining, and spectating I would say this show is on its way to greatness. (I already think it’s pretty great, but my opinion is commonly ignored)
Inevitably summer setups will be swapped for snow tires and the cars we were snapping pictures of this past weekend will begin to take on their winter shape. Some will head to the garage for engine work, body work, improvements, changes or general maintenance. Others will begin the parts collection for new setups or completely different projects. I don’t know about you, but following these build threads online helps pass the time and I’m looking forward to seeing the final products revealed at the 2012 Dustoff. Stay tuned as we make some changes to the site and will be making teaser announcements about what to expect in April at Seekonk.
You’ll all start to notice some subtle changes over the next few months. We are planning to make some much needed updates to the site, both user facing and back-end coding require attention. Please be patient as we go through this, undoubtedly there will be some growing pains. In addition to the website, we are gearing up for Dustoff 2012. Without saying too much, a few of us have already been busy lining up some of the biggest names in the “scene” and we’re planning to exceed all previous years for attendance, vendor participation and quality. Stay tuned….
