Greetings to all NB & 2012 Beetle people headed for Roswell this year! As some of you already know from past years, Aaron and Sue will be hosting a barbeque at their home in Albuquerque on the evening of Wednesday, June 5th for those traveling through the area while en route to Roswell. We welcome all, regardless of point of origin, to join us at our home prior to the final leg of the trip to Roswell on the following day. Traditionally, it has been NB folks from SoCal who have stopped by, but we want to emphasize that this invitation is open to all New Beetle and 2012+ Beetle owners.

Ollie,

Amsterdam to Roswell is 5156 air miles. That would probably get the farthest Beetle Traveled trophy, Dave would get the runner up slot being about 2419 miles from Orlando if he goes to Chicago with us.

That is unless of course we get someone from Alaska or Greenland to attend!

LOL - left over from last year, but figured you guys would be willing if need be.

Last year Rhonda had her cousin? pass out flyers around town to let the shops know we were coming and contacted the radio.

Sue was telling me she would be available to check out any locations we were looking at for the show and also could swing by the hotels.

That kind of stuff...scouting or contacting folks locally. Maybe even helping with the Road Rally/Scavenger hunt if we need some local-ish folks to help plan.

I have a newbie question. Does anyone bring their kids to Roswell or is it a more adults only thing ?

I believe some do bring their kids. I'll be solo, because I have a teenage daughter and wife that are not into events like this at all................I'm lucky if they show up at my local VW club show for half an hour once a year........

Some do...I was planning on having my 7 year old with me last year, but the day I left was his last day of school and I didn't want him to miss fun with his friends.

Looks like Roswell Cosmicon is the same weekend, but it doesn't look like that big of an event - located at the Mall and Holiday Inn is the host hotel.

Might be worth checking out when we have down time.

But also probably need to get our host hotel set up.

Yep- we've had activities for the kids in the past- hotwheels races, beetle decorating contests and games. Just be sure they're prepared for the high temps

I feel the same way. There's something about the desert backdrop and the New Beetles that is just mezmerizing. Those who experience this for the first time will know what I'm talking about.

Default Pu!

I don't remember if the chosen hotels there had laundry facilities or not. After driving from Florida to Chicago and then down Rt66 to Roswell I am going to need to do a load of laundry!

We stayed at the Comfort Suites/Inn when we went in 2011. We stayed in a whirlpool room. I suppose I could just dump some soap in there and wallow around with my dirty clothes on. Sounds like the makings of an epic party to me!

We will have something like 5 more days to go till we get to LA on Rt66 so I am sure the group going with us will appreciate me not smelling awful!

Chuckie

308 Days until IBT2015
316 Days until Roswell
