Lee and Eileen Coffelt recently returned from visiting family and friends in the Tulsa, Okla., area. They enjoyed visiting the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Memorial Site of the Oklahoma City Bombing and the Tulsa Zoo. While there, they were invited by the Tulsa Chapter of the Volkswagen Club of America to enter their recently restored '69 Bug in the Tulsa seventh annual Bug In. About 150 Volkswagens from seven states were entered. The Coffelts returned to Hayden with two trophies, second in the stock bug class and the longest distance traveled.
