May6th 2016 @ 11am – It is going to be very very busy this year so get here on time and a get a good tent spot as well as show parking spot.
This show highlights all makes and models that hail from Europe. VW, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Alpha, Jaguar, Lotus, Ferrari ect, are all welcome and will all be there. EURO CARS ONLY Prior permission must be granted if you plan on coming with a car from a different continent. There will be no exceptions so don’t be “that guy”. ONLY EURO’s will enter the show field, ALL SPECTATORS WILL PARK ON THE ROAD – PLEASE STAY RIGHT OF THE SOLID WHITE LINE TO APPEASE LOCAL AUTHORITIES.
Camping – for 2017 – Partial Full Moon but rising late – Bring LED lighting or Tiki torches to light your area. If we all do this, we will have alot of light.
Camping is going to be great again as we re-secured the use of the beautiful field on the other side of the county road. The tenting population is expected to be high this year so get here early to setup a prime spot. People have said, that the transition from show to campfire hangout is a highlight of the show, and adds a cultural side the this event that is unparalleled. The night theater, the 15 foot diameter bon fire, and continued fun into the night creates a need for camping for safety reasons. The local authorities will receive plenty of calls throughout the day with speeding dubsters running up the roads. They will be ready to pull anyone over who has been drinking. Save your money, stay the night and enjoy the benefits that only 40s In A Bag can offer.
Don’t forget about the special feature at nightfall. The giant drive in size outdoor “Euro Speed Theater” will play the best Euro car videos and old Rally videos in HD all night long. Sit by the fire and unwind after a long day in the Sun. Meet new friends, toast to the old ones, and have a great time with us.
Some Rules to ensure we all stay safe and have a great time
No Entry After 6pm – Vehicle Mobility Ban – Engines, Headlights off after Dusk – Respect the neighbors, and keep it safe, move your car upfront before Dusk if you are camping out.
Drinking and Driving is Unacceptable, Dangerous, Puts the Show in Jeopardy, and the lives of others! Camping is free, and available to everyone, so take advantage, stay safe, and don’t get a DWI, because the town, watershed, county, and State Police will be all over this event, and are not tolerating any violations of the law.
PLEASE respect the neighborhood and observe traffic laws. Keep a positive vibe for the show, so we have no problems hosting it into the future. Be smart, and treat the neighborhood like your own.
DOGS – We would prefer you don’t bring one, as a person did get bit last year. If you have NO other choice, the dog can attend, but with a leash only. NO LEASH = No Dog – Clean up after them appropriately.
