Helen now has some mean speed bumps all over the place... And it seems like it was kids/field trip weekend.

HA my pic got screen grabbed and reposted! :laugh: Those will hopefully be mass produced for next year.


As far as "speed bumps all over the place"? Hilarious for anyone to comment who wasn't actually there.

There's one speed bump on Edelweiss by the old burnout pit, and it's tiny. If you're a scenester on bags, that speed bump means nothing. And last I checked nobody did over 15 mph on that street during the show anyways. The only people that speed bump will be a problem for is anyone one lowered on HR Ultra Lows cranked all the way down, or FK Silverlines.

I'm lowered 2" inches and it didn't touch my lip or my panzer plate in the least bit. Not to mention it's plastic and it's ground down pretty good already.

Matt mentioning the speed bump was just a selfish way of trying to deter people from going to Helen.

I very much enjoyed everything about Helen that I always do. The beer, the food, the tubing, the ziplines, the photo spots, etc. And most importantly, it was only the hardcores who care about keeping the vw community tight knit. Very glad the scene kids and their bags headed to Savannah.:thumbup: Made about 7-8 new friends for life as well. See ya'll next May and at Treffen South.

There's 3 speed bumps. And once you know where they are you don't have to touch them. I'm still here. Been since Thursday. Only crossed a speed bump one time
exactly the only one in regular cruising spot is the the one on edelweiss by the burnout pit.

how was the turn out?
there were probably 50-60 cars throughout the weekend - from Thursday - Sunday. Mostly old school guys which is exactly what we wanted.

There was a good size group at the condos by the burnout pit on Edelweiss, a few at the Hampton Inn, a few at the Helendorf, about 20 people in the condos on the river, not sure if anyone stayed outside of town.

Bynum showed up; LovesTrim, a decent size group from SC/NC.

Weather was spot on throughout the weekend. Cops were friendly. Businesses were appreciative. Me and my friends didn't go for the chaos of previous years, we wanted it to be the opposite and we got just that. No massive lines at the BBQ, etc.

As of right now, our club will be coming next year out of Jacksonville. Probably 20-30 people.

I posted the shirt, I was trying to find out, I think on your IG, if they could be purchased. We liked the jab that was taken!

other than that douche "matt boss robbins" (the guy hustling sticker) I had a blast. He got stupid drunk and was sitting on the hood of my car. He fell off and busted his head on the concrete. I was woken up around 2AM to go inspect my car for damage. there was none.

That guy was a tool, he didn't like it when people didn't buy his stickers or challenged him on anything...

Btw, for anyone looking for those shirts, a guy from Greenville made them, he was talking about doing a run of them
LOL I love the way you phrased that "or challenged him on anything" hahaha - I was wondering what his deal was -- I figured he was some local NON vw guy just trying to make a few bucks on stickers.

yeah i was tagged on IG - his username is @sdcaufield on instagram - hopefully we can get something together. It needs a little refining.

It needs the first letter of each word capitalized, and on the back it should have Matt Bounds quote "But nobody died at SoWo" :laugh:
