NOWUFFO
It’s that time again!

Less than 60 days to go until the 2016 Buicks@Bates gathering in San Diego on June 5th!

Come join the largest gathering of Turbo and Classic Buick's this side of the Mississippi. Once again there will be fun for all ages, including the return of the Jump House, coloring contest, and other kid friendly activities.

Mike and I have been beating the bushes(and vendors…) to boost the raffle loot inventory and make good on our commitment to grow this event more each year. As always, every attendee driving a Buick powered vehicle will receive free event T-shirt. Shirts will be handed out at the entry point to drivers and to other attendees after lunch if stock permits.

A preview of this years shirt:



The vendor commitments are shaping up to be just as epic as last year’s with some new onsite vendors making their mark on our community with new products as well.

Stay tuned for more info as we close in on yet another South Western Buick event.

Check out http://buicksatbates.com and http://facebook.com/buicksatbates for additional information including directions, hotel information, and venue rules & amenities.

Drive safe and we'll see everyone there!

First off, don't forget that Ralph's Pizza cruise is this coming Sunday 4-24-16. See thread for details. :)

Bates Nut Farm is located at

15954 Woods Valley Road
Valley Center, CA 92082

Here's a link to their site. http://batesnutfarm.biz/

I can't believe that the show is only about 6 weeks away. Thank you all for those that have made this event what it is today. We are humbled to see the response this thing has gotten so far. For those that don't know, It has been our goal, to do whatever we can, to get as many Buicks together in one place, to represent the West Coast.

This event is for the love of these great old Buicks and the people who own them. If that's cool with you, then you're cool with us. Let's have some fun.

Gates open at 9:00 AM Free to enter. If you're lucky, you may even get a free T-shirt.;)
A really kick butt raffle will happen just after lunch at about 1:00 ish.
Most people will head out between 3:00- 5-00PM

There will be Turbo Buick vendors on hand. (List to be posted) If interested in supporting this event, contact me, Mike B. (949) 433-1257. Vendors are by invite only. Note: anyone caught hustling goods will be forced to clean out the petting zoo pen. :eek: Inspector Czarnota will enforce and supervise this.:wideyed:

Please bring chairs to sit in. There will be lots of shade trees. Bates Nut Farm has lots of great stuff to eat and a lunch time snack bar.
You may also bring your own food to eat (not sell). No BBQs allowed.

No burnouts please! We want to get invited back.;)

More details to come...

Mike and Eric.

Planning on coming again as well, and have invited another local GN owner if he still has his car then. Been in the garage trying to tidy up the wiring, and fix a few bits. Also hope to have the Lightening Rod shifters installed by then.

Since I can never seem to hold on to any of the Buick's I've owned I might be forced to bring my 57 chevy or the VW
Bring that bug Poppa Lou so I can finally beat up on it. I'll probably park next to you since I'm not a GN owner any more.

Hey I was invited either today or yesterday, somebody by the name of Brian left a note on my regal and I just wanted to say thanks for the invited I really wanted to come to one of these things before I left but I deploy at the end of the month and as soon as I return I transfer to Missouri....so it pains me to say I will not be able to make it to one of these events here
