Barber's Vintage Festival October 2017
« on: June 05, 2017, 03:38:43 pm »
Tickets go on sale Tuesday 6 June at 1000. I know a few of you may need to wake up early to get yours, but there are sacrifices that need to be made sometimes.

https://www.barberracingevents.com/vintage-tickets.php

I'm sure it will be a food fest again this year, as it only seems to grow...and grow...

Camping in Group Lot B. HIGHLY recommend getting your camping pass earlier than later as they sell out.

Cheers,
Randy

For all those that have never been, just imagine every motorcycle that has been made in the last 40 years being ridden to the event and parked along the side of the road. While the museum is amazing, the show during the Vintage Festival is along the road looking at all the bikes.

So, if your thinking of attending and camping with the COG contingent, we camp in Lot B. Camping slots do sell out so you should get your camping reservation as soon as possible, but you can get the 3 day entrance passes up to day of the event. We all meet on Thursday and lay claim to COG territory, so if your not coming on Thursday and have a camping spot in lot B, let us know and will save your spot for you.

Food, as Randy mentioned, we generally eat pretty good while there. Several of us drive our cars/trucks with trailers and have a nice camp kitchen set up. We will do dinner every night in camp but for breakfast and lunch, your on your own so you can either bring food in to eat or eat at one of the food vendors. For the provided dinners, we have a donation bucket out for you to contribute to. We will post a dinner menu a few weeks before the event.

We have a member that is local and he will bring a couple coolers of ice and fire wood and fire pit. We will also have additional coolers at camp along with water. There are shower trailers in lob B for you to use along with Port-A-Lets. There are bath rooms & showers at the paddock as well.

Parking, on Friday & Saturday vehicles with 4 wheels or more, need a parking pass. If your not on 2/3 wheels and no parking pass, you will need to park and ride the bus.  If camping, you will get a vehicle parking pass. Motorcycles are allowed to park for free during the event.

This is not an official COG event as we don't do any riding but we will have registration up so we can get a good idea of how many people we have to purchase food for dinner for.

Good times!!

Just to add...

"For ME"....  Ace Corner upgrade isn't really worth the extra money spent.  You will get to see
a part of the track that's difficult to see elsewhere, but there's better places to view the racing action from,
and the vending in that section is no better than anywhere else in the park.

A BETTER recommendation, would be becoming a member at the Museum, get to SEE the museum which
is awesome, and get access to their concession area which is much easier on the wallet.... Free for some meals!

Get your camping in lot "B" and track passes...  This is a GREAT venue, and a great time!

Thinking about coming again. Was there last year, first one to stake out a spot with my Time Out trailer camper. Then as folks rolled in, I suggested a layout to concentrate us all, someone reserved two spots for the lunch wagon, and before we knew it, we had COG central right in the dead center of the lot.

It was even fairly level. I rode around for a few minutes finding a nice level spot for my trailer.  :rotflmao:

One race is for bikes 100+ years old or older. That group grows every year and the first time they did that there was only one bike!

Motocross is in the woods. The riders camp near the track. Some have been racing their vintage bikes since they weren't vintage. Too cool. Some also still have their old campers. It's become my favorite part of the weekend.

Sidecar racing has left hand and right hand hacks out at the same time. You see both sets of physics from any corner. Fun to watch.

If you are a member of the museum you get breakfast and lunch and access to the glass tiled bridges across the track. Also first dibs on seminars. Ewa and I got to take apart a Britton. Some seminars are that cool.

Things like the Wall of Death and Globe of Death are free. Barber hooks it up as these are more fun if they are free lol. The riders up their game all fhe time - 3 in the globe at once or riding on the wall with no hands facing backwards is worth seeing for free.

Japanese Vintage Motorcycle Club in Lot A always has a nice turnout.

Swap meet is so big and active I can't sometimes believe it.

What else?!?

Oh yeah - the slow races - Coffee Break has a rep around there on her C10  :motonoises:

Come join Secog (and Cliff 🤠) for a great weekend  :beerchug:

Thanks so much for posting the link for the tickets. I see everything is sold out for RV's and will soon be sold out for Camping too.. This event is a 'Do Not Miss'.
Anyone who goes always says 'I will never miss going to this event again'. Yes it is that good and the Coggers make it even better.. hence the Sold Out tickets every year. I started going about 7 years ago and have never missed one since.

I wonder if our friend is going to do a face plant again --- That was priceless!!

Phil, they always send out 2 camping passes in the packet & 2 tents are allowed on a 10' x 20' spot. You should be able get a pass from someone & then just buy a admission pass. I've already promised mine out provided  he can make it or I'd send you one.

Jenn, you can share the spot Jean and I have, we are driving the SUV and there is plenty of space for the car and two tents.  Are you riding your bike.  Also the place is wide open and the spots aren't controlled by a fence or anything  ;D  so don't worry about it, just come on.

No problem Jenn. Just come. I have an extra spot for you. Just look for the big white truck and the two giant tents.

Jenn, will you have your 3 day pass or were you purchasing it on site? Don't know when the gates shut down, but until they do, you can just ride in. Once they shut down, only vehicles with camping/paddock passes are allowed in. If the gates are shut down and you have your 3 day pass and they won't let you in, just call one of us and we come and get you.

I was gonna buy a pass this week. Then a job fell through so I'm gonna have to wait another week, but I know those won't run out. I was just hoping for the leeway to come early...and I know phone service is spotty in the campground. Hence sending someone here half the camping money for a pass....
