Spring Fever #33 - Thank You from Vantasia Vans

Vantasia Vans would like to thank everyone that attended Spring Fever # 33. This year’s theme was Graduation. Our event always lands on someone's graduation. So we decided it was time we graduated too! We had 135 Vans plus our club in attendance. This year we decided to offer a Vanner's Stimulus Package. If you had never been to Spring Fever you were allowed to come in for free. 22 Vans sent in for the stimulus, and out of those 16 showed up and 2 have pre-entered for next year. One of those that took advantage was Judith Pilon from Florida. This adds another State to a list of States that have attended Spring Fever. She received long distance USA and International went to George Spadafore from Canada. Thank You both, along with all the others who traveled so far. Texas had over 10 Vans in attendance. Colorado also had several Vans that had never been to our event. Other States in attendance were, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Oklahoma. Thank You all.

George - Long Distance International
This year’s event was dedicated in memory of Jo Ann Large (Jaws Van).  Jo Ann passed away the week of our truck-in. JoAnn and Bob Large have been members of Vantasia Vans for over 30 years. This year has been hard on Vanners with the passing of Vince Eckman from Mixed Bag Truckers and Paul (Wacko) Wack from the Nat's. Board. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families as well as their Vanner families. They will be missed and never forgotten.

This year we had new leadership with Kent Ragland running the show. I think he did a great job. Next year’s theme has already been decided on, and we are working on the flyer. Our theme is "Vanners Gone Wild."

Hope to see you all soon at a Van-In
