ANYONE WANT ANY OF THIS? BRING YOUR CREDIT CARD TO BUY RAFFLE TICKETS BECAUSE TOTAL PRIZES AND SWAG AT THIS SHOW MAY EXCEED $10,000!!!! GGVCOA, SAC VCOA, VCOA and ALL OUR PARTNERS are hooking all you Viking Volvo enthusiast's with almost 4x more than we are getting back. I know because I just wrote a check for almost $1200 for trophies etc. and last week I wrote a check for almost $1K in lanyards and stickers etc.! GGVCOA is hoping to break even as we are going ALL OUT! However, how many times does one see a 15th, 30th, and 50th Anniversary in one?! (Davis, VCOA, IPD) Plus everyone can blame the crazy spending on the "new guy" (ME- Justin Lee President GGVCOA)
PLEASE tell everyone you know on every forum you go to this years Davis. We can now hold a little over 200 cars and I would love to sale out! I also would love to call the Guinness book of world records
I know some of you have mentioned that you could not take the Polestar Tune so how about the IPD tune below?!!!!! Who has worked his ass off to get all my fellow Viking Volvo enthusiasts a ton a free stuff?!!!!!!!! (Life is BETTER lived together) If you need any one last incentive to come then how about the 400 Volvo labeled lollypops donated by one of our awesome Volvo dealers

-Second Shift: 8:00 a.m. to end of show (approx. 2:30 p.m.)

We appreciate the help, and it is the volunteers that keep the club moving ahead.

Let’s make Saturday and Sunday great VCOA events!
