It is time once again to sign up for the Poker Run. It will be run on May 12th. As always we will start in Helen GA behind the Best Western. Start time is 10:00am. A lunch stop is part of the run. (bring your lunch money)

Once again the host hotel is the Best Western. The rate is $65.00. Call and tell them you are with the Athens VW Club. 706 878 2111 Be sure to call this number and not the general Best Western reservations number.
They have a block of rooms for us both Friday and Saturday night.

Cost is $25.00 per person drawing cards if you sign up before April 27. The cost is $30.00 after April 27. If you are not playing, there is no cost; however, we ask that at least one person per car plays. Entry fee gets you a chance at some nice prizes, a great cruise thru the mountains, and an event T-shirt.


If you plan on participating please PM Clyde or me your shirt size. Extra shirts are available for $10.00 each. Please include shirt sizes for extra shirts.

To register please send Clyde your payment (cash or check please), your name, your shirt size, # of shirts, email address, year and model car you will be driving, and your phone number.

Clyde Maddox
1070 Canyon Creek Rd.
Watkinsville, GA. 30677

If you want to be a sponsor, let Clyde, Steve or me know.

Don't forget to get your info to Clyde before April 27 for the reduced entry and to be sure you get the correct shirt size.

Thanks....


This year we didn't persue sponsors as we were not sure what we could offer in return. We are at a point now where we could use a few prizes donated. What we can offer in return for a prize with a value of at least $100.00, is your entry fee waived and I will mention you in every post I make about the Poker Run up until the day of the run.
If you have a cool prize you could donate, but would like something different as compensation, let me know. We are flexible.

Sad to say that I am going to miss the Poker Run again this year. Just not going to be enough time to get the Ghia ready by then. Now planning on making it to the 5/20 meeting so that everyone can see it in all its glory. Might be your only chance as we still aren't sure if it is coming back to GA after BABE.

Thanks to Raby's Aircooled Technology, R 1 C Powdercoating, Tanbugwerks,and Pet Buddies, for sponsoring prizes.

Remember that each year, after the run, we put on a cookout. No addtional cost; just bring your own beverage and an appetite. We will cook hamburgers and have sides to go with them. The cookout is at the Best Western.

Please remember to do the maintainance on your VW. Be SURE your brakes are adjusted and ready for a run through the mountains.

Also, please have a full gas tank before we start the run Saturday morning.
