January News

While the Media is still swirling all about the covid, we have a lot 

of news.


Don Noone has stepped down from the Nationals Board. Don was instrumental for Years in the

promotion of vanning and the National Truck-in®. We Thank him for his many years of dedication

to the Nationals. 

Taking his place is Amy Hale from Ohio. Amy has been spotted at van runs all over the place

helping out where ever needed. Welcome Amy. She is a valuable addition to our Board.


From our support staff we have 3 members advancing to National Board Alternates.

Brad Phillips from CA, Ken "superbeast" from NJ, and Ben McDonough from PA.

Welcome Gentlemen.

Amy and guys, roll up your sleeves, we've got a lot of work ahead of us.


The biggest news, the host for the 49th Nationals is pulling out all of

the stops for this year’s Nationals. If you don't know what the Burning Man

Event that is held in Nevada every year is, go goggle it right now. This years

crew has modeled this year’s Nats from that event. All the wild lights and

craziness. From the return of the N.U.T.S. bus, to the Tunnel of Light, Building

a wood van and burning it to the ground, it will be very entertaining.

Remember you cannot enter the grounds for early camping unless you pre-register!
