    I think the spring show in eden may be on the same day. It will be interesting to see how it plays out. I'm guessing everyone will just pick whichever one is closest.

    Don't say that,now I will have to choose. I am getting to know everybody at the Eden/Reidsville shows but know of a few around me that if they know about the Charlotte show would show up probably and they have some good stuff.

    I love VW's and have owned a few buses, though not one at the moment. So who knows... but no link to that other show yet. I told them about the Charlotte show so hopefully they can get the 2nd weekend. Right now it's "2nd or 3rd weekend". It's difficult for me to get weekends off work, so I still have to choose, and that's if they let me have either weekend at all. If I still had my old 73 camperbus...

    Thank you Ozzmonaut, let's hope they get the 2nd weekend.
    There will be plenty of vws at the show, especially buses. Who knows, you might even be able to score a new one there!

    Yes, there will be a lot of bus items for sale.
    The link to the bus show is in the original post if you want to check it out.

    Man, I'd love to be there, but.......That weekend is reserved for my first love, Hot Rods!!!!

    Hope the Reidsville/Eden show gets Mother's Day weekend! Although, that would probably count me out, too!

    Drats!
