When the dirt that H2Oi would be canceled for 2017 broke a few months ago, it looked bad for VW enthusiasts. Understandably, a bunch of you had already booked your hotel rooms or something because thousands of enthusiasts showed up anyway. It was one of the more soul-stirring expressions of fandom—a bunch of fans showing up despite the bureaucratic issues. Turns out, The depths City was not charmed by the display.

Famously the most ticketed car show in America, it’s harmless to say that the attendants of H2Oi tend not to be on their best behavior and that has ruffled some feathers. As Jalopnik reports, the High seas City Council is addressing such automotive hijinks with the “motor events exercise plan.”

“Immediate action is required to reverse this undesired trend of lawlessness, civilian disobedience and disrespect for our town,” reads the document.

Among the measures recommended are evanescent speed bumps, rolling roadblocks, and even timing construction work to equal with the event.

And if all that doesn’t work, Ocean City might secure to call in the National Guard.

The Ocean City Council went so far as to rank automotive events by how obstreperous they get, with events like H2Oi and Fall Cruising ranking poorly in “Desired Demographic” and “Level of Law Enforcement Required.” In the intervening time, events like the creatively named “Jeeps” and “Corvettes” both ranking OK in all categories, including “Behavior of Non-Event Attendees” and “Adverse Social Media Collision.”

Whether or not the town was deliberately trying to sound like the Dean from “Animal Ancestry” is not known at this time.

“But what about the money that events like bear in,” you ask? Well, the Ocean City Council has a solution. They’ll just advance in other, non-automotive events. Like what, you ask? Oh, you know, Youth Tournaments, Pickle Ball Championships, or Higher- ranking Citizen Olympics. You know, fun stuff.

And while we may be taking a light tone to this fabliau, the impact could be very real for the fine people who put the show together, because one of the recommendations covered by the plan is to take legal action against the Promoter.

While that hint met with some resistance from the council, it is nonetheless on the table. Another design was to ask promoters to simply move H2Oi and the Fall Cruise to other cities.

The motor events vigour plan is just a list of recommendations for now so a vote on its approval and what recommendations choice and won’t be adopted by Ocean City aren’t yet known, but the city is moving forwards with task force to reign in the events happening in its town.
