#1 Post by michael rogers » Tue Mar 27, 2018 11:36 am

According to the 356 Registry magazine the Nor Cal Treffpunkt (Artist fomerly known as Treffen) is the "Best little car show you have never heard of". Let me tell you with over 200 cars last year the word is out that the Nor Cal Treffpunkt the best of both worlds because it's open to all air cooled VWs and Porsche's. Free coffee and bagels in the morning and raffle prizes throughout the day. Parking is on the grass under the trees no baking hot asphalt at the Nor Cal Treffpunkt. You will not find a more relaxed day of hanging out with other enthusiasts.

Swapping is allowed as long as it is driven into the park in your Porsche or VW.

Only a few weeks to go! I have more raffle prizes this year than ever before. Stoddards really kicked in with some stuff.

Vendors are welcome and you don't have to drive your merchandise into the park in a vintage Porsche. Contact me with any questions.

Hey Mike,
I hope you're doing well. I'm looking forward to attending the Treffpunkt again this year. I'll be bringing the speedster as my bus is in the midst of a trans rebuild.

See you Sunday!
-Greg
ps: Anyone in the Bay Area with a Porsche or VW who has this Sunday morning free should really come by. It's a fun, mellow, home-grown show that always has an interesting mix of cars.

Thank You Michael and you all that helped put on another great show, keep it going and keep it simple. Looking forward to the September 2nd swap...
This year the Porsches outnumbered the VWs, This annual event reminds me of gatherings of years ago, before they became complex and overly priced. For me, this show is like a class reunion, growing up nearby, many of the guys who were there I have known for a long time some even back into the mid-60s and high school.
The Emory Campouts are such events, time to sit down and enjoy the cars, meet new and old friends and just bask in the sun among our favorite cars. A few others from the past come to mind, the 1st Gathering of the 356Club in 1985 at the Cunningham Museum with the In and Out Burger truck and kegs of beer, or the Gathering of the Faithful meetings in Northern California, or the the Silverado Grove and the Sonoma Mission Inn gatherings, Danna Point Concours, and many of the North South Events.
Simple can be best..
Thanks, Steve
