It's easy to become a club member - just show up at the meetings and volunteer a few hours of your time at the annual Vintage VW Meet. If you do that, you'll get a great collectible Vintage Meet T-shirt, free camping sites at club campouts, free food and drink at club activities, but best of all, the recognition and camaraderie of fellow VW fanatics! What could be better in life?
There are no fees (dues) to join!
Come join us for pizza and a fun meeting to discuss upcoming events and activities, what parts or cars you have for sale... what you'd like to buy or any interesting VW information or unique part you'd like to share. And of course we always end our meetings with a tour of member and visitors VW's in the parking lot!
Our club meetings are the first Tuesday of each month at Sparta's Pizza in Bothell.
18817 Bothell Way NE Bothell, WA 98011
Our "official" meetings start around 7:00 PM, in the summer we usually show up around 6:30 and hang out in the parking lot.
Little is known about the formation of the Cascade Kombis, but the most widely agreed upon story is: In the Spring of 1986 or 1987, three families, the Crandalls, the Lukeys and the Slaters came together on Mt. Washington in the North Cascades. The three, with their early VW buses, a Dormobile Westfalia, a Riviera Camper, and a Fire Brigade Kombi, decided that an annual Vintage VW Meet was not enough to satisfy their Type II habits, a monthly dose was required. Crandall suggested a local pizza restaurant as it could be seen from the freeway. Slater pointed out the need for an active group to breathe the life into the local vintage VW scene. Luke railed against dues. They made it so... Once built, others came. Island people, Eastsiders, seekers of enlightenment and sanctuary from a water-cooled world. Slater preached "Responsibility" and the Vintage Meet became a part of the club. Luke demanded a strict regime of casualness. Crandall ordered pizza... The club has evolved since its beginnings. Our location has moved due to an ever-changing environment. Members have come and gone, but the vintage Volkswagen enthusiasm, Pizza, Vintage Meet and monthly gatherings still remain.
