Spring Fever "Vanners Gone Wild" hosted by Vantasia Vans

Vantasia Vans goes out of their way to make sure their event is memorable and this year was no exception. From their Goody Bags to the live bands and Saturday margarita bar everything they do makes sure you have a good time at their event. Numbers were down from previous years but I think it was due to the rising costs in gas. All year long Vantasia has been going to events promoting their Vanners Gone Wild theme with different drinks...all quite tasty.

We got there Friday after work and from what I heard Texas started partying early with Art making sure everyone tried at least one double bubble.  He always looks so innocent with that smile on his face - not!! Last I heard he went thru 4 bottles of Jim Beam. It was a late night for all with a lot of dancing going on and hanging out with good friends.

Saturday started out with Show n Shine and kids games.  The biggest class in the show seemed to be Astro vans. I would not have wanted to judge that class! Mr. Bill was parked up on the corner making sure no one went thirsty.  Vanatics also promoted their Groundhog event with a "lemonade" stand that afternoon.  Later in the afternoon it was off to the pool party for margaritas and adult games. They even had a costume contest/parade for all the dogs at the event.

Trophy presentation started right after dinner. Had a pretty good storm hit after trophies. The sky turned green and it got pretty windy but it cleared up in time for the partying to continue into the wee hours of the morning.

Another great event and it makes me wonder what their theme will be for 2012??!!

Vanniversary 37 hosted by Central IA Vanners

If you've never been to CIVs truck-in you should try and make it out some time. It's always a fun time! The event is held at the Jasper County Fairgrounds in Colfax, IA the 1st weekend of May usually. Due to the flooding of the grounds last year the party was moved into the barn next to where it's usually held. 

There was a DJ playing on Friday night and the shot bar was the place to be.

Show n shine was the next morning. There were about 10 vans in the show.  Ed & Jo Ann Gray from County Line debuted the new paint job on their van - very nice!!

Carson was there pinstriping again this year and Gary & Jean took advantage of it. 

Games followed the Show n Shine as well as the annual caravan to somewhere interesting. This year it was the Tulip Festival in Pella, IA.  I couldn't talk Rick into it going this time since we had gone there before so we stuck around the grounds and relaxed.
Trophy presentation came later that night followed by wine tasting and a live band.
Thanks CIV for putting on another great event!
