After much consideration, I will not be hosting a Wagonfest event in 2018. As I have always said, and encouraged, someone else can feel free to step up to host a Wagonfest 2018 of their choosing.

Thanks to all who participated in the past years. I am grateful for your support.

Dave Buchholz

I found a location for 2018 if we decide to move from Seneca Lake.

When you know, you know. I was glad to attend one you put together (so thank you).

Now sit back and let what happens happen to NY WF and know you made your mark and be at peace.

Sorry to hear that you have elected to pack it in Dave...I'm sincerely grateful for all your efforts over the past several years. I always really enjoyed the event and venue. As others have written your going to be a difficult act to follow. I sure hope there is a WF 2018...happy to help whoever elects to pick up the torch.

So now is the time all you guys that have gone to many of the NY WF to step up and take a swing. As I have been the defacto guy for FL WF since 2010 or 2011 (I'm old and don't remember as well as I used to), it's a PITA to even do the little bit I do. And What I do is alot less than Dave has done every year.

I pack WF FL into another show, so I don't have to mess with getting a 'spot'. I just get a block of rooms (and I've had great help from Krzidiamond with that). I just buy steaks and flamingos and herd cats. I'm doing the absolute minimum to make it happen and it's still a time drain.

My point is, it takes alot of work to put this together (even minimally), so don't 'hope' there is one, make it happen. It's easy just to show up every year, but without help, I understand why Dave has opted out this year.

I'll make it easy for you all:

1. Rent a pavilion,
2. call hotel and block out rooms.
3. If people want lunch, tell them to bring it.
4. For dinner, either reserve a restaurant or do a BBQ like I do. (take up a collection say $15 a head and two people go buy food and bring it back and BBQ it up)

We are little more fancy as we can work in Filet Mingon into the mix as we get a head count and have a 'meat connection' and bring the steaks with us (thanks Fred K!!!).

It's low budget but yeah that's how we roll lol. Obviously we doing okay as people come back every year.....

So again, if you have attended more than one WF NY, consider pitching in to make it happen if you want it, It's a labor of love and love is a fickle bitch.

Okay peeps. My wagon is sitting in a crumpled heap right now, but I love getting together with you kooks. I was planing on going WF Florida this Spring up to a few months ago, but plans changed... I've got a Granddaughter coming around that time, can't miss that. So, if there's enough interest, I'll "host" WFNY at Seneca Lake Park this year. I'll rent the tent, talk to the peeps at the Microtel in Waterloo about rates, and maybe set up the Watkins Glen track tour. I'm not going to do awards, ballet sheets, or bring the grill. I'll just provide the shelter. Lean, mean, & simple.

There is a catch though. I'd have to change the date to the 3rd. Saturday in July... July 21st.
So, let me know. Has WFNY had it's swan song, or do we give it a shot in the arm?

OUCH! What happened to your car???
