A few of the JK Team headed down the road to Classics at the Clubhouse this weekend, and had an amazing time chatting to people, catching up with friends, speaking with customers, and checking out the huge range of air-cooled vehicles parked up on the golf course. 

Classics at the Clubhouse is held at the Sandford Springs Hotel & Golf Club not too far from JK HQ, which was a fantastic location for an air-cooled meet as it gave the show a really different vibe and opened up opportunities for some really cool photos. Plus, it was pretty fun to drive our VWs over a pristine golf course! 

We had a stand area at the show, which was just as well as we definitely needed our JK shelter to protect us from the sun - it was a scorching hot day, which only added to the photographic opportinities. Our own resident photographer, Nick, wasn't able to attend as he was in Falmouth for the Sea Shanty Festival, but we muddled by without him. 

Everyone we spoke to was having a great time at the show, and we all had an excellent time there - we're already looking forward to next year's event!

This year's Classics at the Clubhouse was the Aircooled Edition, which saw a huge range of classic Volkswagens parked up alongside early Porches and even some Fiat 500s. The vehicles were laid out over a pretty big swathe of the golf course, but play continued a safe distance away on other parts of the site! 

Porche itself had a big stand and display area at the event, with some really cool vehicles on show. There were also a load of other traders pitched up alongside us, including Auto Wares, Hayburner, and Paul Howse among others. 

The atmosphere at the event was really relaxed, with everyone just getting along, milling about, admiring the different vehicles, and trying to stay cool.

We parked up Doris, Jack, and Val next to our sun shelter, popped a couple of flags up, and then kicked back to relax and enjoy the event - nice and easy! It was great to have so many people approach us to say thanks for helping get their VW back on the road, or ask us questions about projects, or just come for a chat or a look around our vehicles. 

Each of us managed to wander around the show, take photos, catch up with people we know, and even make a few purchases from the different stands. I treated myself to a glove box door pull from Auto Wares so I can actually use the glovebox in Jack without having to scrabble around and try wedge something behind the door to prize it open! 

Classics at the Clubhouse was a really great show, and even though it took me two hours to drive about 25 miles home because the M3 was closed, I'll definitely be attending again next year!
