Big change for the 2018 GWFBT!!


The 41st annual Great Western Fan Belt Toss and Swap Meet is being hosted by the San Diego Corvair Club on Friday, October 26 to Sunday, October 28, 2018. Sunrise Park in Palm Springs, California will again be the site of the “Toss”.

Because the San Diego Corvair Club is also hosting the CORSA 2020 National Convention. We plan to offer a Practice Concours d' Elegance in conjunction with the three day event. Our purpose is as follows:

1. Familiarize participants with international CORSA Concours rules.
2. Refresh concours judges with judging procedures, particularly recent changes in international CORSA Concours rules.
3. Train those persons interested in being concours judges.
4. Provide participants with written feedback on the concours preparation of their vehicles.
5. Enable participants to make improvements to their vehicles in anticipation of the International Convention, to be held in San Diego, California, July, 2020.

Please consider this communication as a formal invitation to attend the 2018 Great Western Fan Belt Toss & Swap Meet, and to participate in this Practice Concours. Plan to attend as a participant; as a judge to "tune up" your skills; or as a partcipant to learn the art of concours judging. Bring your Corvair - you will receive a written, accurate appraisal of its' concours score to prepare your car for the Internantional Convention in San Diego in 2020.

Participants will receive a set of CORSA Concours Rules, together with a tutorial for participants, experienced judges, and persons who desire to be judges. During the actual judging of vehicles, experienced judges will be paired with persons who
desire to be judges. Since this is a Practice Concours, no awards will be given. However, the highest scoring vehicles and their owners will be publicly recognized at the Saturday Banquet.

2018 GWFBT EVENTS & Schedule



PAVILION FIELD ACTIVITES From Friday noon until Sunday, October 28, 2018, the outfield of the baseball park will be open for GWFBT&SM activites. RV parking will be assigned along the fence line. There are only a limited number of spots available and all are "dry". RV fee for the entire weekend is $60. That is $60 for one night or for 2 nights, (not $30/night).



NO PETS ALLOWED ON THE FIELD per Palm Springs City Ordinance 11.44.



WELCOME PARTY Friday, October 26, 2018 at one of the 2 restraunts on the Quality Inn starting at 7:00p.m. There is no charge for the Welcome Party. San Diego Corvair Club will be providing a light buffet and soft drinks.



PEOPLES CHOICE CAR SHOW Saturday, October 27 2018 at Sunrise Park. All cars must be parked between 8 and 9 a.m. Trophies will be awarded on the field at 4:00 p.m.


SWAP MEET As soon as the field is ready (approximately 11:00 a.m.) Friday morning October 26, sellers will be admitted. All spaces are 20'x 20' and still $20.00 for the weekend. We encourage early registration as spaces will be assigned as they are received. Come early for the Swap Meet, so you don’t miss those rare items we all just have to buy!


"Group Tour" We anticipate a "spontaneous" Corvair tour/caravan from Sunrise Park to the banquet meeting at the Elks Lodge. Same as last year. Great fun!
Perhaps even driving by some of the famous "mid century modern" homes as depicted in this year's Great Western Fan Belt Toss logo (see post #1 in this thread).



BANQUET Speaker will be Mike Hall, President, Corvair Preservation Foundation Saturday evening at the Palm Springs Elks Lodge, 7:00 p.m. Sure to be a vairy informative and interesting presentation! Don't miss out on this highlight!



The evening will conclude with the drawing for several rafel prizes, including a $1000 Gift Certificate from Clark's Corvair Parts, a $500 Gift Certificate from California Corvairs and a $500 Gift Certificate from Rafee Corvairs.

Raffel tickets are $5.00 each or 5 tickets for $20.00

Also a special raffle prize extra this year is "Memory Quilt" of past fan belt toss events. Separate raffle tickets for this special prize.

Sunday morning, more cars and parts swapping at Sunrise Park till 2:00 p.m. and then volunteer clean up the field. HELP WANTED!

With younger people coming into our club I've noticed a shift toward modifications to make cars more practical to drive, modified interiors, modern paint colors.

While I enjoy cars restored to stock I hope the Concours d' Elegance doesn't exclude modified cars.

One of the most positive things the SCC club did was create a show class for cars in progress of being restored and cars still driven in daily use. It made folks with less than perfect cars feel welcome at the show.

The last thing I want to attend is show run by a bunch of rule obsessed snobs.

Concours d' Elegance by CORSA does not exclude any Corvairs modified or stock.

If you want "rule obsessed snobs" hit up the PCA.

This event is being run by the SDCC. Truly a great group of folks.

The 2018 Great Western Fan Belt Toss host hotel has changed it's name!

Formerly a Quality Inn - it is now a Travelodge. Only the name has changed, same management, same rooms (no construction).

Same phone number and same $72 per night rate.

Just the phone gets answered "Travelodge" now. not "Quality Inn".

Repost from another thread:


There has been a number of people overpaying with regard to the registration fee. The cost is $10 for ANY number of people attending the event on a single registration form. About a half dozen applications have paid the fee on a PER PERSON basis. I have been tracking this and those folks will be refunded the over-payment. It will be in their packets at the Toss.
We admit the form is a bit confusing in the wording, So again, the registration fee is $10 per registration form

[www.sandiegocorvair.com]

Small correction to the registration form: Registration is a flat $10 for one or the whole family. NOT $10 per person.

Banquet will be at Elks #1905 same as last several years. Food will be provided by the same caterer as last year, but will be Italian this year. We, Anita and I recently went to the restaurant for a taste test. The food was great. Anita was very happy with the food - Anita knows good Italian food, she was born in Italy.

The Host hotel has changed it's name. New name is Travelodge by Wyndham. Nothing else has changed. Same phone number, same $72/night special rate, lots of parking for cars and trailers. Mention Corvair Club event to get special pricing.

Clark's Corvair will be here this year with special pricing and shipping.

Banquet speaker will be Mike Hall, CORSA President
