I believe it would be a little south west. Need to map it out for sure.

It is indeed good to hear SVV was able to work this out!
Spring Thaw is a nice eVANt and it would be sad to see Back Mountain without a winter project in their hands!! hee hee

And yes, that is also Bluegrass weekend, but with the distance between the two, I don't think it should be a
big issue for too many. I am concerned about a new eVANt
closer the same weekend tho. It really doesn't do either
group well, and I hope it can all be worked out so Vanners
can attend both eVANts!

Huggs to all SVV--
I miss all your smiling faces!
And, great news for Thaw!

Ok now to give a little more information on what is going to be happening with Thaw. As you know this will be our 30th. Susquehanna Valley Vans began hosting Spring Thaw back in April of 1982 at a campground called Shangra La Campgrounds. This was a nice location for us to have our event for 6 years. We then moved to several other locations over the years until we settled on Friendship Park where we held it up until April 2010. Circumstances beyond our control caused us to cancelling last years event. Well with some persistence and numerous calls it was finally agreed upon that we would indeed host Spring Thaw 30 again on April 27-29 2012 at the West End Fairgrounds in Laurelton, PA. This will be our 30th van-in. Also I am sad to say it will be our last. This will be the last Spring Thaw that Susquehanna Valley Vans will be hosting. There have been many good times, memories and friendships made at Thaw.
With that being said we also will be having help from an up and coming club called Generation Next based out of Levittown, PA. This is a great group as I am sure many of your know. They are also a member of the PVC as well. Not only will they be helping us but they will also be taking over the Spring Thaw date for 2013. We are not certain at this point if the name of their run will remain the same as Spring Thaw or if it will be retired. This is something that our club needs to come to an agreement on. At this point with hunting season and the holidays it is hard for us to get together to discuss all of this.
I am working on a flyer to have put out. There will be no theme base so to speak for this Thaw. At this point it is going to be called Spring Thaw 30--Thanks for the Memories. I am doing a lot of the groundwork on this myself as the other members of the club are busy doing other things and have lives and I don't. lol I may ask for some help from others as well. Hound is very involved with the Moose organization and it is very hard for him to have free time to do much else. So he has more or less given his blessing for me to run with this. So I am.
So there is the scoop as it stands right now. There will be more info to follow in the coming weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Oh Phil---sorry you guys won't be holding Spring Thaw after next year, but I understand.

I am very glad that SVV and Gen Next are able to work together to pull this off. And they will learn a lot from a group that has put together so many eVANts over the years--that will help them to continue with the eVANt, no matter what it will be called!

Keep On Truckin'!

Spring Thaw is a great run and for many the first run of the year. I can't imagine using a different name. It doesn't matter who hosts it, we are vanners and will support each other. A good example of this is Freeze Out..Starwars (Interstellar Space Truckers) hosted it for years and now it's hosted by Freebird Vanners.
