PAST Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, FRESH AIR HOSTS, July 15-16, 2017

Postby conrad1468 » Wed Feb 22, 2017 10:15 am

Every July, Schenley Park is the scene of one of the area’s largest car shows. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix stages an International Car Show – a combined show of 20 separate displays featuring 2,500 cars. It’s a weekend show open to anyone – no invitation is needed. All makes, all years, all countries, including the U.S. are welcome, whether or not you’re with a car club. You’ll be a part of the show with the best parking spot all weekend to watch the vintage races on the streets surrounding the golf course. Shine up your ride and be a part of the show!

Fresh Air is ready to launch into our inaugural year as hosts of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix! Much work has already been done and we have a great group of folks who have stepped up to be involved. While it is not required that you register as a PVGP volunteer, doing so will get you a free volunteer t-shirt and you will be covered under their event insurance. The Volunteer Registration Tent is located just inside the main gate. An 8am arrival time will allow our VW volunteers time to park their own vehicles, get registered, sign-up at the Volunteer tent (if wanted), and be at their post by 8:30am to be ready when the cars start rolling in.
Assignments are as follows...
Registration Tent:
9-11 Sheri Anderson, Judy Cody, Erin Robinson
11-1 Hector Corante, Becky Antitomas, D Eric Nuttall
Parking (Saturday):
8-11 Jason Cody, Cam Cody, Joe Robinson, Jason Antitomas, Kyle Boronky
Parking (Sunday):
8-11 SIGN UP ON SATURDAY
Gate Relief:
12-1 Adrian Lamperski, Scott Martin, "others needed"
Ice Water: Dan Lutz
Data Entry: Rick Hasse
This is our first year so there may be some hiccups along the way but I ask that you hang in there with us and pitch in if you see something needing done or if someone needs relief from their posts.
There will be a new parking pattern this year, People's Choice voting (placing 1, 2, 3 with AWESOME trophies), drone filming of our area, VW coloring books for the kids, and much more.
All tents, EZ Ups and canopies will be placed down by the tree line for shade and to keep the car show area clear of obstructions. This is the PVGP standard and we are upholding and enforcing it this year.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered and all who helped push this operation forward. If you have any questions, concerns, comments, etc, please don't hesitate to ask.
See you this Saturday!!!!

We did it! Our first year hosting the VW Show at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix was a success and I again want to thank all who volunteered and gave some time to help move things along. The list is long and you know who you are.

We had 102 vehicles registered at the end of day 2 and a good display for folks watching the races. The $1 water donation station generated $218 with zero overhead. With that money plus our pre-registration and on-site registration, the Fresh Air VW Car Club raised $4114.25 for the Allegheny Valley School and the Autism Society of Pittsburgh.

Great job EVERYONE! We should be proud of that and understand that our hard work resulted in a sizable donation to worthy charities. That's pretty cool in my book. For now, there's nothing left to do but smile, Smile, SMILE...and start planning for 2018.
