CofC Registration

The CofC Registration tab on this site is now active.  If you click the tab above, it will take you to a form allowing  ALL vanners attending the CofC 2018 in New Orleans to register (not just the council reps….council reps will fill out another form from the CofC Board). You only need to fill it out once (unless things change)! This information will help Smiley and I prepare a fantastic Evant for you!  

Thanks! Amie & Smiley

Hotel Reservation Update 3.14.17

Well, we had planned to open up reservations at our hotel this week, but Smiley and I feel that due to Winter Storm Stella that the Vintage Chevy Van Council should delay opening up the general reservation block for the 2018 CofC. We will continue to monitor the weather and then let you all know when we expect to start taking reservations.  This website, as well as our Facebook page Voodoo on the Bayou 2are the best places to get updated information.

Hotel update 3.7.17

I meet with the hotel today and they are almost ready to start taking our general reservations!! Very exciting news!  Please do not call the hotel yet.  They will not be able to take your reservation.  Once our room block has been activated, the sales department will let me know.  At that time, Smiley and I will let all of your know!  I’ve been assured that they should be ready some time next week….they are transitioning to a new reservations system for group events and are still working a few bugs out.  Our block is secure….we are just not able to book it yet.  Thank you so much for your patience!

Updated info on CofC2018

Just a quick update!  Mardi Gras was this past Tuesday and the city is still filled with guest….so…..stay tuned! We are meeting with the hotel next Tuesday and should have the reservation kick off date settled by then. The hotel is instituting a new reservation system and it seems that we have gotten caught in the middle of the transition. We remember how quickly our hotel sold out last time so we just want to make sure that everything goes as well as planned. Thank you for your patience.

Voodoo on the Bayou 2: Romp in the Swamp!

The Vintage Chevy Van Council is excited to be your host for the 2018 Council of Councils to be held February 22-25, 2018 in New Orleans. Hotel reservations will not begin until after Mardi Gras.  Please check back here for more information after March 1, 2017.

Packing for New Orleans

Well….usually we would say to bring short sleeves and a jacket or two….but the weather is throwing the whole country for a loop.  Make sure that you do bring layers.  Comfortable walking shoes are a must. And don’t forget that an umbrella or rain coat can come in handy.  See you in a few…..

Jazzy Pass

Jazzy Pass

Forget about bills and coins. Get in tune with the rhythm of New Orleans. Dip your Jazzy Pass into the fare machine on any RTA bus or streetcar, and you’re on your way. The Jazzy Pass is a card with a magnetic strip that lets you ride RTA buses and streetcars as much as you’d like during the period it is active.

You don’t need exact change.
You don’t need transfers.
Board quickly and find your seat.
Hop on and off buses and streetcars whenever you wish.
Save money when you ride a lot.
Feel like a local (whether you are one or not)

3 day Jazzy Pas available at Walgreens 1801 St. Charles $9

A “transit day” on the RTA system ends at 4 a.m. So no matter what time of day you activate your Jazzy Pass, it will stop working at 4 a.m. on the following morning.

Streetcars run 24 hours a day.
