WELCOME TO COVVC!



What a great Volksfest 27!  It was a wonderful day with the high temperature in the 70's and a perfect day to enjoy all the beautiful VW's participating.  As always, many thanks to Watkins Memorial High School and their Athletic Boosters, the Boy Scouts, our dealer participants Byers Hatfield, and MAG, swap meet vendors, car show participants and, last but not least, all of our dedicated COVVC volunteers.  We could not do it without you!  The COVVC has been blessed to be associated with the Childhood Cancer Family Connection for many years, and the majority of Volksfest 27 proceeds will go to this very worthy cause. 

Our September meeting is our Annual Chicken Fry to be held on Thursday, September 14th beginning at 6:00PM at the Gillman residence!  This event will be held rain or shine, as we have plenty of space under cover for everyone.  Please RSVP to Greg Gillman (614.891.3733) so we know how much chicken to prepare.  Do plan to attend this very fun annual event!  Click here for more information.

Tina Gibson has noted that
Hidden Lakes Winery in Canal Winchester is hosting a VW Beetles, Trucks and Vans Show on Sunday, September 17th.  Registration is 10:30AM to 1:00PM with awards at 3:00PM.  More information about Hidden Lakes Winery and directions are available here.

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.

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 27th 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!
