Hotrod Festival & Car Restoration Expo

This will be held on March 15, 2009, Sunday, at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The different car clubs will meet in different areas and then meet up in a long motorcade along a route to be announced later.

Each car club will have a Miss Hotrod candidate who will be their representative in the beauty and talent competition.

Expect “Lindsay” and “Herbie” to make an appearance on that day.

Each car club by the way will be given 20 parking slots. We will try our best to have all VW cars in attendance to be group altogether reminiscent of the parking we did during the last Guinness attempt. Traditionally, in all car club meets in the recent past, the VW contingent has always been the largest in attendance. Let us not break that tradition…let’s all bring out our VWs and ROAR!

Stay tuned for further announcements

The VWCP is going to the 09 Hot Air Balloon Festival

The VWCP is going to the 09 Hot Air Balloon Festival. The Club will have a bug-run to Clark Field, Angeles, Pampanga on Sunday, February 15, 2009. We invite all our VW friends to join us for a fun-filled day enjoying the sight of those huge balloons and tons of aircraft inspired activities.

For 2009, well over 100,000 spectators are expected to attend five days of fun in the skies To be held at the Clark Civil Aviation Complex, right alongside the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport. It looks as if 25 countries will be joining this event, which seems to be growing by leaps and bounds each year and becoming more like a major air show than a hot air balloon event. This years balloon festival is lining-up to be the greatest ever, and it will be easier to attend then ever before. So, if you have never been to this mega event, or if you wait anxiously each year to see the myriad of balloons and other demonstration aircraft and exhibits, then join us for this fun event for the whole family.

As usual practice, we meet at Burger King Timog and will stop at the last TOTAL gasoline station at EDSA before turning right to NLEX Balintawak. We intend to leave at 5:00 am or even earlier to catch the early lift off schedules of the balloons.

Bring cold weather clothes. . . your jackets, sweaters, caps, etc to keep warm in the early morning and don’t forget to bring your cameras and videocams.

The VWCP Pampanga boys will again be the most generous hosts. If time permits, we can all have lunch at the local BBQ joint as in the recent past.
