So where are all the photos? Heard it was a fantastic turnout and great weather too! Who won what?

So much for my plans to attend the event.

I was off Saturday and Sunday, scheduled to arrive back into town on Friday evening from a two-day flight assignment. But our 140 seat MD-80 aircraft had other plans for me. She sprung a small hydraulic leak in a mechanism for the tail rudder while passing through Denver and once the local mechanic saw that, they grounded the bird. Planners froze the crew in place all day Friday to wait for the fix. It crept longer and longer and soon I realized I wasn't gonna get home as planned on Friday night. Sat in the hotel all afternoon Friday watching a bunch of episodes of MTV's "Ridiculousness" and a movie or two. Specialized mechanics were flown in from our maintenance base in Tulsa with parts/seals and on Saturday morning a planned 8am departure crept back to noon, and then to 2pm. We finally stole another MD-80 and ferried it empty back to Chicago. I knew I wasn't gonna make it back in time for the show and was constantly imagining how much fun I was missing. Fucking bummed out, I was! We got to Chicago (viewed the landing thru the cockpit, always a spectacular experience in a commercial jet!) at 5pm and then our crew deadheaded as passengers back to STL arriving at 8pm, long after the show festivities were over. Oh well, I have a great job, great pay serving sodas to folks and occasionally throwing them out for burning planes... well, I haven't had to actually do that last bit yet for real in over 40 years as a "stewardess". "Bitches, JUMP and SLIDE"!!!

Looking forward to seeing your photos and hearing your reviews! Nice Job organizers!

What an epic show. Had close to 100 cars, if not just over? Thanks to Russ and Co for putting this together. I don't think I have ever been to a VW Show this big in the STL City Limits.

Wow! Fantastic photos guys! Thanks for posting them up! I obviously had to miss a great time! You're probably right, that is more VWs in one VW show within the STL city limits that I can remember seeing! Way to go Russ & Jodi! How are you gonna top this one? Better take a short break and get to work on the 2017 event planning, if you need anything, let me know... Perhaps I'll catch a cold and call off sick next year, so I can't be kept out of town by accident and of course recover. I unfortunately missed a great time!

We had 100 register and I know a couple people came late and didn't register. So I'm calling 101 vws.. What a day. Schlafly was super excited about the turn out and already said we get the whole lot next time. Thanks to everyone that came out and support the event. We raise over 1000 bucks for gateway pet guardians.

As normal I didn't have enough time to talk to everyone long enough or check out the nice rides as much as I wanted. Thanks for posting the pics.

We are already thinking about the spring fling.

Thanks again vw pals.

It was a great show and a great turn out. We stopped by petco on the way in and grabbed some dog toys to donate but the beer made me forget. A show in the spring would be amazing. Schlafly had a better setup that UCB did the previous year. Good to see a bunch of people that I generally don't get to see too often.
