PDX Westravaganza/Benefit for Mike Locicero, Owner Import Trans Exchange.
Saturday, December 7, 2013
Lucky Labrador
1945 NW Quimby St.
Portland, OR 97209
3 pm to Whenever...

We have secured the lot on the north side which is owned by Con Way Freight for our DubSpot so we can all park together as one.
It is kitty corner from the rear lot we have gathered at in the past, but, we can keep all of the VW's together which is huge and worth the extra small walk. This is Con Way's lot and will be patrolled by their security for anything amiss, so, if you plan on imbibing in the lot, please use your proper show etiquette and keep your drinks in coffee cups or unmarked containers. :wink: Thanks GWTWTLW, Pete for the hookup.
It's the large rectangular lot bordered between NW 20th/21st and Raleigh/Savier.
Here is the lot we will be parking at :wink:

In the spirit of the Holidays we are holding a benefit fundraiser for Mike Locicero: Owner Import Trans Exchange.... ... Creator of the Mikey 5 speed bug transmission conversion kit. Son of Joe Locicero... Originator of the Raby DTM fanshroud / Oregon Performance Products.
Ashley from Always V-Dub, Tom and Deb Caldwell from Halsey Automotive Repair and the Portland Vanagon Contingency are happy to share the stage in a show of support for a HUGE contributor to the local VW Scene, Mike Locicero: Owner Import Trans Exchange.

This will obviously be open to all the PDX/PNW VW crowd and we expect a MASSIVE turnout. We will have the regular Westravaganza but the purpose of this is to not only congregate, but, support Mike in his battle against Inoperable Cancer with a large showing of love and support. Please donate what you can and/or, bring items for the silent auction. Any questions, Please PM me or call Ashley at Always VDub.

I also created an event in the Shows/Events/Camping and Club section as most who know Mikey and his work may not be browsing the Vanagon Forum

I'd appreciate it if the mods let both fly 8)

Note: The PDX Westravaganza meet up and gift exchange will have a different twist this year and will be announced at a later time and become a more private gathering this year due to a very sad unfortunate event amongst our ranks. More details to follow in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned and keep those details off of this forum. Thank you.
