I cannot find the sports car of my dreams, so I built it myself
— Ferdinand Porsche

Dubs at the Lake recently held its first benefit Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche car show at the Garrett County Fairgrounds in McHenry MD. This event has been in the works for several years and I am super proud that we had so many awesome people join us for this event. The Dubs events are the most important part of my year. It takes a great deal of effort to plan and execute these events and it requires the effort of many people to put it together. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has played a part in making this Dubs at the Lake show a great success.
First of all, thanks to our sponsors. Every year, I reach out to businesses to sponsor and donate. Lindsay Volkswagen of Dulles is our title sponsor and sponsored our trophies that are awarded to the Top 25 and Best of Show. Vagwerks Performance and Coating Motorsport sponsored the Speed and Style award as well as our major sponsor. Pat’s Speed Shop is also a major sponsor.


These sponsors are an important part of this event, and we thank you for your support. We thank those businesses and families that made a donation as well.

Every year my friends at Custom Concepts and Sam Wakefield (The Official Dubs series Graphic designer) spend their time assisting me with new graphics, artwork, logos, stickers, wraps, shirt designs etc... So thank you for your major contribution. I have all others listed on the website throughout the year so please support them and thank them. We cannot do it without you. Much love volunteers are family to me and help me in my pursuit of the perfect VW/Audi/Porsche car show which is hectic at times. Major thanks and love to Heather Helmstetter who supports me and my passions on a daily basis and volunteers her personal time throughout the year to help Dubs at the Lake and Dubs at the Gap flow smoothly. Also Todd Shipway who spends countless hours doing the IT work to make registration go smoothly. πŸ™πŸ» Thank you to everyone else who volunteered this year and in the past.

The show had a total of 80 registrations.

Thank you to everyone who came to Dubs at the Lake 2018! I am personally inviting you to come to Dubs at the Gap on September 15-16, 2018. Be there! #dubsatthelake #dubsatthegap
