VW Nationals 2005

2005 VW Nationals

Well it was another great year, and I am glad about that. Thanks to everyone who lent a hand during the show, especially new members who came along and asked what they could do to help out on the day.


Thanks to all our sponsors on the day, without which there would be no show. We had a major disappointment with the Drags this year, but we now have a date set to run the event on May 22nd. Look for details in this issue, and come along and have a great day racing or looking. If you would like to have a run, please come out to WSID, it’s only $55 to race.

The show gets bigger every year, with a record number of Kombis entered. The car show standard is always increasing. Special thanks to our car show judges, their job is thankless, but it’s a great way to see every car in the show, and thanks to the Clubs who supplied these people.

The extra under-cover area allowed all of the swappers to be out of the weather (not that you needed cover as it was a beautiful sunny day). Our raffle was well patronised this year, with heaps of great prizes.

Once again thanks to all members who helped on the night before and during the show day. It’s great to see so many helpers.

Don’t forget to support out show sponsors this year. They’re all listed on the back page of each month’s magazine. These people help us out, so if you’re looking for something for your car go along and see them.

Our next meeting at the Greyhound Club will be a bit of a post-mortem, where we will discuss what worked well and what we can do better next year. If you have any suggestions on what we can do to make VW Nationals 2006 even better, please come along.
