LODGING ALERT!

Fredericksburg, Texas has been discovered!

The higher rated hotels/motels have a two-night minimum on weekends and that at $200/night!

Back in '59 my one-day-stay in F-burg was $3.50 (Dietzel Motel) and lunch at the Deluxe Diner was 85 cents for food, dessert and drink - my, how times have changed.

The Dietzel Motel is still alive at $100/night but this is not a recommendation...

Right next to Dietzel's is Friedhelm's - the best German food in Gillespie County...

...which is were I'll be mouth-stuffin' Friday early evening 5 May, 2017.

February bump...

Just before departing Pavilion 5 at Lady Bird Park (rolling out to Llano) we will vote for People's Choice BEST VOLVO.

Each one of us will cast one vote for one Volvo.

The owner/driver of the winning Volvo will receive the Grand Prize...




...and the second place Volvo gets $25 which will buy the DVD.

Thanks.

March 2017 bump…

Should your life partner or equivalent stand firm - "I will not go to another Volvo meeting unless you find something to do other than talk Volvo all day!"
Nothing says that you must follow some schedule or be someplace at a certain time.
No problem - the Texas Hill Country in and around Fredericksburg is blessed with activities for all interests including eating, drinking, driving and talking Volvo. What - you want more?

OK…

The German immigrants began settlements in west central Texas in the early 1800s but it was in 1848 that Fredericksburg came alive and eventually thrived once the peace pipe was smoked with the Comanches. A drive along the side streets just off Main Street finds original homes, barns, outhouses and Sunday Houses all handmade from local stone and oak.

Back in the 1960s my German language skills came in handy when ordering food and buying ranching supplies. Conversations with the cute waitresses were limited as my (then) wife could habla Deutsch pretty good. Her father's place was on the Old Kerrville Wagon Road (now Hwy 16) just west of what is now Lady Bird Johnson Park. The new owners have fixed it up something sparkling…

Why not just do three or more full days in the area with a few hours dedicated to Volvo cars sandwiched in between?

April 4, 2017 - Online Registration for the October 2017 VCOA National Meet in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is now OPEN...

vcoa.org/events/national-events

You must be an active VCOA member and also must be logged on to complete the registration process.

Should you wish to register via snailmail check your latest copy of ROLLING for the mail-in registration. If you go this route consider making a copy of that page in ROLLING as tearing out the leaf is considered blastphlamous.

A quick events update...

Once all are settled in at Pavilion #5 in Lady Bird Johnson Park we will frustrate most everybody with yet another Volvo Trivia Quiz. The questions are all easy - the answers not so much. You may use any and all electronic gadgets at your disposal. The individual with the most correct answers wins $25.

Following the Quiz we will vote for People's Choice Best Volvo. Each person will vote once for their one favorite Volvo. The winner receives the VCOA ROLLING DVD (searchable) containing all issues of ROLLING Magazine 1983-2013. Second Place gets $25 which will buy the DVD. In case of a tie the Volvo Nut driving a Subaru will vote.

Before we roll out to Llano we will elect a Texas Chapter Vice-president and Secretary/Treasurer. Chris Ng, Chapter President, will then hold an open-forum meeting to discuss future meetings and the VCOA requirements concerning Chapter meets (annual dues, meet fees, bank account, etc.)

Just twelve more days - get out the Meguiars!
