WELCOME TO COVVC!



Join us for lunch on Saturday, September 24th at 12:00 noon at the Hofbrauhaus (800 Goodale Street, Columbus, OH 43212)!  Don and Karma Wuertz have set up this fun event again this year--it's a bye week for the Buckeyes--so please plan to participate!  We also encourage you to drive your beautiful VW's as there's a possibility of parking some of them right in front.  If you plan to attend please RSVP to Don and Karma (740-362-4432) so we will have enough tables for everyone.  We hope to see you there!

Our October monthly COVVC meeting is back at Tommy's Pizza in Dublin
(4279 W. Dublin Granville Rd, Dublin, OH  43017) on Thursday, October 13th.  The meeting begins at 7:30PM, but come earlier and enjoy dinner with your fellow COVVCers before the meeting.

VOLKSFEST 26 WAS A SUCCESS!
 In spite of the threatening weather forecasts, it was mostly sunny, and we didn't have a drop of rain until after the awards were distributed and most attendees had left.  Thanks so much to all the volunteers, swap vendors, WMHS Boosters, Boy Scouts and participants for helping to make Volksfest still the best VW show in the area!  Our show is a major undertaking, and we certainly appreciate everyone's best efforts to maintain the atmosphere that participants and attendees expect.  Congratulations for pulling it off yet again!

The Emerald Necklace MG Register (NE Ohio) has scheduled Ice Cream Runs for the driving months and has extended an invitation to COVVC members in the area to join them.  They meet at the designated ice cream stops at 7:00PM for ice cream and conversation.  This year they are being scheduled on the first and third Wednesdays of May through September.  If you can, please plan on joining in.  No reservations are needed.  For questions and/or additional information, please contact Rod Barkley.

Check out our COVVC North page!  We welcome our VW brethren from up north and look forward to more joint activities.  Do you know any northern Ohio VW owners who might want to get involved with some events that are closer to home?  Contact Mike Roecker for additional information and click here for some photos of the North group's recent activities.

Send us your historical VW photos!  We are working on an upcoming feature highlighting precious vintage family photos which include Volkswagens.  These photos tell the stories we'd all like to remember, and we KNOW many of you have some of these photos around, so please search the attic and basement and send photo scans to Ann Gillman, including your photo's story.   

Don't forget to renew your COVVC Membership!  Please take a few minutes to check the expiration date on your newsletter mailing label.  Please note we can now accept both new and renewal membership payments via PayPal!  Click here to check it out.  Renewals can also be mailed to the COVVC at 13671 Wagram Road, Pickerington, OH 43147, or see Brenda Easley at our next meeting.  Please make sure to include your current address, phone and e-mail so we can verify that we have all current info on file.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE COVVC - 25 YEARS OF VOLKSFEST!

ABOUT THE COVVC



Our club was originally founded by a group of twelve enthusiasts in the spring of 1991.  These like-minded individuals were looking for a way to pool their parts and resources as a way to maintain their vintage VW cars.  The COVVC was born! 
Now in our 17th year as a premiere Vintage VW club based in Columbus, Ohio, we welcome everyone interested in both air-cooled classic VW's as well as newer water-cooled VW products.  Our membership spans many states from California to the East Coast, totaling over 200 members strong.  We are the sponsors of the COVVC Volksfest held each August in the Columbus area.  Come see what all the fun is about!
 

OUR MISSION
To have fun!  To boldly go where Vintage VW's are welcome (i.e. anywhere!) while spreading a spirit of camaraderie with fellow vintage automobile enthusiasts.  Nearly everyone has a VW story to tell, and that thread binds all of us together.
 

QUICK VIEW OF OUR CLUB
Literally hundreds of VW families fill our ranks.  Our club is full of people from all walks of life, incomes, and age groups.  From doctors and dentists to students we all "got the bug" somewhere along the line.  If you've been bitten please join us!  You do not have to own a VW to join--just a passion for these way cool cars.

Our monthly meetings are always on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30PM.  Check out our Calendar link for meeting locations and upcoming events!

Our Volksfest vintage car show draws over 3000 spectators and over 300 show cars each year - and it keeps growing!  Part of our annual proceeds from the Volksfest show goes to Childhood Cancer Family Connection (formerly KidsNKamp) - we're giving back to the community that supports us.

Our newsletter, Zündfolge, is published monthly, full of member articles and pictures. It's simply one of the nicest enthusiast newsletters out there and something we're very proud of.  It's a monthly tribute to our strong club and its members.
 

CONTACT INFORMATION
A key core group of members keeps our club running.  A completely volunteer effort on their part, these dedicated individuals make it happen.  We're always looking for new members, and we welcome new volunteers to keep our club strong.  Feel free to contact us today!
