Had a great time this weekend. Wish more of the crew had been there, these few trips I can do mean a lot.

The puppy reminded me of the movie "Awakenings" this weekend. She was sweet and non aggressive all weekend. I just know after she gets a good night's rest she'll be back to terror puppy tomorrow.

Tom/Ronnie, sorry we didn't say goodbye, we were re-routed away from you for the vw push contest. Thanks for the laughs!

<sigh> People suck. From Casey on Facebook:

This past weekend was one of the biggest and best All Air-Cooled Gatherings we have had to date. For 15 years, a dedicated group of CJVWS members has made this happen by volunteering their time, money, and resources for the Volkswagen community to enjoy. A ton of hard hard work and an entire year of planning goes into making each show a success. One aspect of the show that draws a huge turnout is the camping on Friday and Saturday. A source of pride for the CJVWS is the confidence we all shared that we can trust our fellow hobbyists with our prized possessions, be them camping gear left unattended, cars parked, or parts in a trailer waiting to set out for sale on Sunday. As an added precaution for 2019 we even hired a security team to keep a eye out to add some additional peace of mind for our participants.

With all that someone still had to cause a major problem. On Saturday night someone stole the wheel trim rings right off Gene Langan‘s 21 window bus. Waking up to hear this news on Sunday morning was the worst news I could’ve ever received. Gene Langan has supported our show for years and brings some very special cars. He does this out of the goodness of his heart and for the hobby and for people to enjoy. He also makes a very generous donation to Operation Jersey Cares. And he’s also a friend of mine. Having this happen to anyone is unbearable but is made even worse when it's someone who does so much to support our event and asks nothing in return.

I sign the contract with the Swim And Sport Club every year so I am ultimately responsible for everything that happens there. To steal something like this in the middle of the night is a big slap in the face. Things have been stolen in the past and I have had enough. Our vintage Volkswagen community is better than this and I can’t believe this happened. It only takes one bad seed to ruin the bunch but that’s the case. What I’m asking is that the thief mails me back those rings. No questions asked. Until then I don’t plan on booking the camping portion of the show for 2020. I mean, where else can you stay for 10 bucks a night, get a free beer, and listen to a kick ass band. In the past we’ve had signs stolen, tail lights stolen, and numerous things taken off vendor's tables. This is not the VW hobby that I know. I was worried one day this event would grow too big and potentially turn out of control. Even with hiring security for the first time this still happened. I shouldn’t have to hire security at all. Now I know it’s the 1% that did this to our event. But that 1% is going to ruin it for all of us. I have no patience for thieves and I want Gene’s trim rings back! Among this small community in the tri-state area someone has to know what happened to those trim rings. I doubt the thief worked alone. The responsible party knows who they are and if you want to see a good camping show ruined for the entire community don’t mail them to me. As all my friends know I am a man of my word and I will cancel the camping. I simply can’t let this go. Please spread that word that I’m not gonna book and start planning for next year unless the trim rings are returned. I wanna squish it right now.

Not good.
Liam and I went over to the see bus a few times, and he was asking my someone would do something like that after they made the announcement at the show. I still dont have an answer for him.
