Welcome to The North Alabama Volkswagen Club. Our group is made up of water and aircooled Volkswagen enthusiasts from North Alabama and the surrounding areas. Together, we formed the NAVWC to help promote and spread our passion for VW’s. We also gather together to discuss what’s new in the world of Volkswagen, check out each other’s rides, cruise, and sometimes just hang out.
We also host an annual car show, called Bug’n In July, to benefit our sponsored charity, Crisis Services of North Alabama. This year, there’s been a few changes made to our show. It’s now a one-day show and while it’s still in Decatur, it’s in a much better location. Check out the Bug’n page for all the details.
If you’d like some more information on the North Alabama Volkswagen Club, please contact us or check out our membership section. You can also come sit in on one of our monthly business meetings or our informal Get-Togethers and cruises throughout the year. The locations are subject to change, so check the meeting section before heading out to make sure we’re there!
The club is going to participate in the Decatur Mardi Gras parade on February 14th next month. All who want to attend this event please meet at Jack’s Hamburgers on 6th ave at 4:30 pm. We will depart Jack’s shortly before 5:00 pm to line up on 2nd ave and Gordon Dr. at 5:00 pm . Participants at this time may decorate their Volkswagens with Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold and green. Participants also may wear Mardi Gras colors and or costumes and are allowed to throw party beads and candy. Come enjoy the fun…!!
Jack’s is located at: 514 6th Avenue NE, Decatur, AL
Don’t forget, it’s almost February and our February Business meeting is next week. We will be once again meeting at the Schnitzel Ranch on University Drive at around 6:30 pm.
The Schnitzel Ranch is located at 1851 University Drive Northwest, Huntsville, AL 35801. See y’all there!
Every year the NAVWC hosts a charity car show called “Bug’n in July.” And every year, we take the proceeds from each show and make a donation to our sponsored charity, Crisis Services of North Alabama. This year we may have been a little behind, but yesterday club members Dolphe, Daryl, and Todd went to Crisis Services to hand over a “little” check.
NAVWC makes $1,200 donation to Crisis Services. Pictured L-R: Dolphe, Todd, Daryl, and Jessica.
The NAVWC would like to thank everyone that came out to support our 2014 Bug’n in July show. We’d also like to thank the sponsors that donated time, money, or door prizes. Bug’n in July couldn’t have happened without y’all!
We were recently contacted by the Schnitzel Ranch after they saw our Christmas party post about them being closed. Someone has been spreading rumors about them going out of business, but they are NOT closing. They ARE still in business. To celebrate the fact that they’re still open, we thought we’d move our January business club meeting (on the 1st Tuesday of Jan.) to the Schnitzel Ranch.
The Schnitzel Ranch is located at 1851 University Drive Northwest, Huntsville, AL 35801.
UPDATE 2 (12-18-2014): We were contacted by the Schnitzel Ranch and they have confirmed that rumors of their closing are greatly exaggerated! They are NOT closing. They ARE still in business. At this late date, we will keep our Christmas party at Hildegard’s but we thought we’d move our January club meeting (on the 1st Tuesday of Jan.) to the Schnitzel Ranch.
UPDATE: We just found out the Schnitzel Ranch has closed, so we will be having our club party at the Hildegard’s German Cuisine on Whitesburg Drive at 6:00 pm (not 6:30 pm) on December 20. (Address below)
Join us for the annual NAVWC Christmas Party! Since the Schnitzel Ranch has closed, we will be having our club party at the Hildegard’s German Cuisine on Whitesburg Drive at 6:00 pm on December 20th. All club members and their families are invited.
In true Christmas spirit, we will definitely have our gift exchange again this year. To participate in the gift exchange, you must bring a gift, so you will need to bring a new, unused, wrapped gift that’s under $20 to exchange. Though this is often called a “Dirty Santa” party, that’s only because recipients can “steal” gifts a few times before they are frozen. Please make sure your gift is family friendly.
Please note that the club will not pick up the tab for everyone’s dinner. Everyone is responsible for their own meal and drink tab.
