About Us

The ABC is an Arizona-based, family-oriented club, dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and enjoyment of the Volkswagen Transporter. We are a collection of drivers and hobbyists whose preferred mode of transportation is old  VWs, preferably buses. If that sounds like the kind of crowd you'd like to hang out with, come to our monthly general meeting or look us up at a show. The club is open to all Type II owners and all VW enthusiasts. 

Every year the ABC raffles off a VW bus at our big event, the "Jerome Jamboree" in Jerome, AZ usually (but not always) the third weekend in September. 

Raffle tickets are sold only at the event and YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN! 

Thanks and enjoy your Bus!

SEPTEMBER 2020  JEROME JAMBOREE  - Canceled                        

Gold King Mine.  1000 Perkinsville Rd. Jerome, AZ

The ABC board waited as long as we could on the decision of whether or not to hold the Jerome Jamboree at the Gold King Mine this year. We had hoped that with the opening of the economy things were returning to normal and we would be able to host the event, but in recent weeks it has become clear that this would not be the case. Covid-19 is a serious disease, and our case numbers are escalating in Arizona.
We hear over and over again that proper hand washing and social distancing are the means to slow the spread of Covid-19, and at Jerome we can offer neither. It is one of the most crowded of bus events, with hundreds of people in a small venue, and we have no running water. Even if we invested in more frequent port-a-john cleanings and extra hand washing stations, we very simply cannot meet the minimum requirements for keeping our friends and family safe. And with this week’s open-ended Executive Order by the governor, all events with more than 50 people are prohibited, so the decision has also been made for us. It is with heavy hearts that we have to cancel this year’s Jamboree.

We would like to thank our venue hosts Gold Kings Mine for the fabulous support, and look forward to being able to host this event at Jerome in future.
We still plan to finish the raffle bus, which will be raffled off next year instead. It will be going from Joanne and Ted’s house to Roy and Dawn’s house. Once finished, we plan to drive it to smaller events and gatherings over the course of the year, showcasing the hard work of the many volunteers and sponsors who donated time and supplies, with the hope that we can have our 30th Jamboree in 2021.
We’re sorry the news isn’t better. If you have any questions for the board, please email us or post in the comments. Thank you, and stay safe everyone.
