914World.com _ 914World Garage _ WCR 2018 - Newberg Oregon June 7-10thNEWBERG OR

Posted by: Mikey914 Jan 24 2018, 11:18 PM

OK we were having some issues with the 1st hotel in Forest Grove. They would require all alcohol to be sold by them, no outside food, and not enough room for trailer parking. Would have been nice but the final straw was they wouldn't sell a keg, they wanted a by the glass. That and they had an issue of us hanging out in the parking lot in the evenings. They wanted to rent us even space.
We may revisit this but too many issues for us at this time to go forward.

We are staying at
TRAVELODGE NEWBERG
2816 PORTLAND ROAD
NEWBERG, OR 97132 US
Phone: (503) 537-5000
Fax: (503) 537-9099
Email: wyndham99w@gmail.com


The cost is $108 a night. Reg rate is $128, so not a huge savings, but good location.

This is already set up use code WCR 2018 to reserve

June 7 Thursday
We are still trying to solidify but we have one of the 2 options planned
1- Newberg drive in (about a 2 min drive at the most)
We have reached out to a local VW club to try to takeover the drive-in for Thursday. Waiting to hear back about the min number of cars needed to be open Thursday.

2- Auto event - Pats Acres. They do allow cars but also do high power go carts. This is about a 40 min drive, but the drive is nice. The problem is it would have ot be earlier. 2:00 ish.
More to follow on Thursday plans as they hash out

June 8 Friday - Wine Drive will be combined as a poker run too- twisty country roads and visits to a few local wineries. Spouses / significant others may appreciate this event and hopefully more can make it in for the Friday fun. There will be prizes (PMB sponsoring ) and lots of fun

Dinner looks like it will be Pizza and BYOB (beverage) parking lot "tech" sessions - will be providing some heaters

June 9th Saturday - 9:14 Actual Tech session for about an hour followed buy the "distance drive" twisty back roads, lunch photo scavenger hunt.

10:30 -
Distance drive - will be to the Oregon coast with an open lunch at a local restaurant / tap house beautify views, lots of picture opportunities.
Back at 16:00 - 16:30

Dinner Banquet 18:30 - 21:30 with awards and Raffle

Will be at Black Bear - Literally one block away. No driving.
More "tech" sessions in parking lot after

We have made arrangements so that we can have an one RV "security" if we have a taker. Sorry only one.

Sunday depart


Will be setting up the registration as soon as we have the costs confirmed
Each registered primary participant will get a T shirt and swag bag on check in.

Additional registrants get T shirt and second poker run registration.

Registration for the 2018 WCR is OPEN! Click the link below. Please contact me directly at carolinewhitesell@gmail.com if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing all of you.

Slam Dunk.
The thrash begins...

Posted by: rhodyguy Jan 25 2018, 07:14 AM

Much better. I didn't think the beer and parking lot situation was going to pass muster. The 8th is my birthday. No need for expensive gifts. Inexpensive ones are ok.

Posted by: TC 914-8 Jan 25 2018, 08:06 AM

I’m in and booked, $103/night on the BW app confused24.gif
Thanks Mark and team putting this together !!!!

Posted by: ConeDodger Jan 25 2018, 10:22 AM

They use some kind of formula that averages the price over a period of time. Like right now, it’s $104 on Hotels.com. Try to book the same room in May and it might be $122.

They are just holding a price over time.

I will buy you a liquid present biggrin.gif

Posted by: Mikey914 Jan 25 2018, 10:51 AM

It looks like you may be able to book from some of the other sites cheaper so by all means do so. I'm not on the hook for the rooms and we would hold til May a block of 20. So if you use Hotels.com or a site like that you can get other bonuses like stay 10 nights booked through them get the 11th free.

It is a busy time of year so do check all and let us know what you find.
Thanks,
Mark

Maybe hook up AT pat's acres? We have to be out by 2 or start at 2? Hotel first shortens the window for fun. They will hold our reservations.

Matt has the hook up out there, but it's expensive if there's not a lot of peeps. So may just stick to their carts. Still flushing that out.

Posted by: ConeDodger Jan 25 2018, 02:00 PM

Just a note for any future WCR planners. Mark knows this so not for him.

We never sign performance contracts. While these might get us a better price, the huge disincentive is that if we say we will book 50 rooms and we only book 49 or less, whoever signed the contract is on the hook for the rest of the rooms and possibly a penalty. Don’t ask how we know... blink.gif 914World.com is not an organization. We are all free agents so be careful you don’t sign anything that puts you on the hook. Doubletree went after the signator for $5000.

This is also why we don’t use Hilton or Doubletree hotels.

Fun! I live in Newberg, handy. :-) That's also the Alfa Romeo Owners of Oregon 50th Anniversary celebration too, so lots of classics on the roads in the area that weekend! I'm going to have some difficult decisions to make!

Posted by: rhodyguy Jan 25 2018, 02:43 PM

Thanks for the heads up about the AR folks. That could impact room avaiability.

I am in but haven't made reservations yet. Glad to know it will be your birthday, but finding the right gift? Hmmm. That will take some thinking and I bet some are way ahead of me on that one.
I wonder if it will rain? Or if I will be fighting it out with Italian cars (for parking).

I believe the AROO activities are going to be centered in the Lake Oswego/Bridgeport area, so I wouldn't guess a great impact hotel wise, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of the rally routes are going to be shared, there's some great roads out this way!

Posted by: stevend914 Jan 25 2018, 04:34 PM

Looking forward to being there...not necessarily getting there sad.gif , 31 hour drive per googlemaps. driving.gif Probably make some side trips going and coming back home.

Waiting for Sandy (seaside6) to book a room, then we will be heading up there in his original /6 smile.gif

My car should be running by then, however I think it makes more sense to just drive one car up there and his will be much nicer and more fun.

Head east from Cresent city and take 99(?) to grant's pass. The smith river canyon is a super drive. Continuing north from CC is a time consuming affair. Limited roads crossing the costal Oregon mountains. The road west from Bend is a fun one too.

From Medford I was going to take 199 to Crescent City and then head north on 101. I plan on taking 2 or 3 days to get from Medford to Newberg

Posted by: rhodyguy Feb 23 2018, 01:01 PM

Fun drive when you can take your time. Beware of big chunks of rock waiting for you around blind corners going down the canyon.

Posted by: Mikey914 Mar 8 2018, 01:43 AM

We will be opening up the registration in the next 10 days. We have been trying to finalize costs. It looks like we only have $175 from the year before. Normally it was about $1000 but it looks like we are going to have to cough up some funds to get the party started. Artwork for the shirts are done, at least the prelim version. We may make a few tweeks, but this is it.

So had Mikey and Caroline helping to put this together and wanted to explain a little about how this is working this year.

First we are allowing guys to register for a single day, if they can only be there Friday or Saturday for the Drives.

I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT DAY REGISTRANTS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO WIN THE PRIZES OR DRAWINGS.
Also no shirt is included.

You will want the full registration to get in on the goodies. PMB is sponsoring the Friday drive. We also have a prize as part of the Sat Drive and the banquet. We did this as we have some 911 guys that wanted to tag along.

Day registrants will get drive decals for drive they sign up for and full registrants will get both.

We are also starting with only $170 in the bank and will have to pay for much of the expenses out of pocket to bring this all together.

This takes us to the Friday lunch options - We have an opportunity to have a sandwiches brought in by one of the wineries, that has been most generous with allowing us to have lunch there at no charge, and they are even bringing in beer for us too. I highly recommend signing up for the lunch here and even have the vegetarian option for Elliot ! We will actually get a short tour of this winery about 10 min to show us the process, they use and they are one of the few that actually bottle their own too. We have a great even planned and as interest in our cars grows we will probably be meeting some future 914 owners too.

Registration is now open and we will be doing some preview drives of the roads this week. They are some of my favorite roads in the state. This is going to be a lot of fun. Who is ready and who is on the fence?

I have been going to WCR's since 2010 and have yet to bring my 914.
It is always a fun weekend with or without a 914.
Many of us have seemingly perpetual projects or revolving projects.
I completed one car but sold it before WCR came around.

I am working toward getting my car there this years buy it is going to be a strech.

Yes.
We have the drives planned so you will want to register for the day at least. However, if you want to do be able to win the poker run or any swag on Saturday you will need to register for the complete event. If you register before the 20th a T shirt is included.
After it will be too late as we have to place the order prior to have them made.
On that note we will be opening up t shirt sales shortly for those that cant attend but want a shirt, or just want more than one.

Made motel reservation today. Was putting it off because I was still a bit on the fence over physical stamina. One thing I am not clear on. Is there a Thursday event? Coming from afar I would be pulling in Wednesday then. Made that reservation, but can cancel and arrive Thursday. Hope that car and driver both hold out. 30 hr, 2032 mi if I take I-94. I-80 is a bit longer. One nice thing is that even the interstates have great scenery when you get a bit (half way) west.

I have these cool pieces of paper made from trees. I write to whom it's payable, the amount, sign the piece of paper, put it in an envelope, stick a stamp on it, put the envelope in a blue metal box and BOOM! done.

Mark,
My apologies but I cannot make the trip this year. I just canceled my hotel reservation so a room should have opened up.
I hope to see you all soon beerchug.gif first.gif driving.gif

Sorry to hear you won't make it this year Tony.

Dang sorry to hear you won't make it Tony. I am unsure if I'll have my car ready. Going to the shop to spend some time Saturday with my wrench. So I should know this weekend.

Although there is still a chance I will have to go out of state. My daughter is pregnant with our first grandchild. She is Due June 20th so as long as she doesn't pop early I should be good. As soon as I get the call she is headed to the hospital I drop everything & hit the road though. So should things happen early confused24.gif

Hi folks,

Is there an official schedule of what and when for this event? Was something posted or emailed that I missed?

I'm registered but neither of my 914s are road ready. I plan to show up in my Kellison. (At least it's VW powered.)

Thanks,
-Jeff

First post in this thread.

Yes, I read that months ago as the not-yet-solidified schedule.

My question was more toward if the variables were pinned down.

I guess it doesn't really matter, I'll show up Thursday and go from there.

As was stated by someone a few posts back, many thanks go to the folks arranging this event. I know it is a lot of work.

Looking forward to viewing your VW powered Kellison. I've only seen chevy powered ones. Fun group of nice people. You'll have a good time.

I e-mailed Caroline and asked about times of the drives planned for Friday & Saturday. I got this info back.

"Friday morning will start at 9:14 for a "tech session" at the hotel parking lot. Then the winery drive will start around 10:45 and go until 5:00ish...depending on how long we stay at each place. Then we will have dinner at the hotel that night. Saturday morning will most likely start early at they're planning a drive to the coast; 9:14ish and end late afternoon. The dinner is back in Newberg."

A Black Bear! Great choise. Mega portions, great food. Chicken fried steak covered the plate. We stopped at one coming back from CA.

On Saturday morning there is a Cars and coffee just a few twisty roads away in the next town over. It is at the World of Speed Museum. http://www.worldofspeed.org/featured-exhibits/
I will be doing the complete drive next weekend from there to figure out timing and photo opportunities. At that point we could see if it makes sense to stay longer and actually visit the museum with the Porsche exhibit and then do the drive.
What are your thoughts?

We might driving up in an original /6 MDB2.gif .... Sandy is sorting out some fuel tank/leak issues on his car, we'll see.


I hope to be feeling better myself for the trip , I've been out of breath for the last week and my x-rays today showed pneumonia in both lungs sad.gif
