The Winners


Jan 11, 2000
I wanted to list some of the winners of the various items at the fest while it's still fresh in my feeble mind. I hope everyone felt like a winner for attending, I know that I did. By my calculations we had over $5000.00 in prizes, I know there is alot of questions on the various things we have been posting. The Show winners were recorded by Jonathan Bartlett, he's going to need to post a seperate thread as Ripster has done for the race winners. Fred and I were dealing strictly with entry numbers and not handles or names, so I have some blanks here, bear with me.
The prizes for 1st place at the show were divided into 3 catagories. A4(Jetta, Golf) NB, and A3 & B4. The awards for 1st place in each catagory were certificates of $450.00 in parts at Bob King VW!

Thanks to all who organized an absolutely wonderful week end. You made every person there feel like a winner. The greatest prize of all was getting to meet the likes of Fred, Rene, Tom, Jonathan, Omar, Bruce, Ripster, Garrett ... and so many more who contribute so much of themselves to the TDI community. Thanks guys for a winning weekend.

I left the list of winners from the show portion with Driv'n EZ so that the photos could be matched up with the names. I neglected to keep a copy of the names and goodies and catagories for myself.

Everyone who was fortunate enough to attend was a winner! Great company, great advice, sharing, great comorodory! Thanks Rene, Ripster, and all others including numerous contributors of prizes, time, and talents for a great get together! Feel Bob King VW did more than there share of support. Thanks to everyone who shook the trees for the prizes. It would have still been a great weekend without the prizes, the bountiful prizes just mounded icing on the cake!

Thanks Jonathan, I just want to state publicly that I could not have lost to a finer gentleman. It was most gracious of you to suggest a rematch after you blew my doors off on the final run. You prepared well and drove well. You deserve the prize of fastest stock car at the Fest. I consider myself honored to be alongside you at the START of the race. I had a lot of fun. U da Man.

I emailed everything I had on awards for the car show directly to Rene. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help get it posted from this end. It looks like Rene has most everything already updated at the top. Just a couple blanks. Mrs. Derf has the complete listing, she and I got together at the track and went over our lists together. I hope they are both enjoying a much deserved vacation on the eastern shore.
