After last year's Bulli Brigade XX, it became very apparent that the club needed to find a new location for the winter show. The powers at the park no longer wanted the VW bus show at Ft Desoto Park (mostly due to seller permits), so a new location needed to found. Enter Robert Kennedy, and with this help, they found a new location, this time in Clearwater, Florida. The Quaker Steak & Lube was interested in having the show, and there was a "host" hotel right next to their parking lot.
So Day Two of the Pasco BugJam Weekend continued with the 21st running of the Bulli Brigade at an all new location. The entire show, including the swap meet was all held in the parking lot, so no dirt or dust was an issue. Turnout was awesome, and by 10:00, the place was packed and the swap meet was overflowing. But like other Bulli shows, most bus owners soon brought out their extra parts so the vendors extended throughout the entire show. Overall, we think the new location is a winner. Weather held on all day, even though rain was in the forecast for Saturday night.
After the show, many VW owners made the 45 minute drive north on I-75 to Dade City to take part in their downtown cruise night, and registration for Sunday's show at the Pasco Fairgrounds. Over 120 VWs made the cruise which is about 3X from last year. Sunday will be a huge event! But we did see some rain about 5:30 this evening, which continued for the rest of the night.
