Good Day Fellow V-Dub'ers,

As some of you know, we are planning to join the VW Club of Tidewater & Tidewater Type 2 club for 2 events in the month of August.  The first will be a big picnic in Virginia Beach on 15 Aug (Sunday) and the second will be a Fun Run to Peace Frogs in Gloucester.   So, at this time, I would like to know who plans to attend.  Please let me know so I can make the necessary arrangements for the gathering.

I look forward to hangin' out with our fellow VW enthusiasts!!
