TRICOUNTY CAMAROS SOUTHWEST FLORIDA CHAPTER

Effective 1 April 2013
The SOUTHWEST FLORIDA CAMARO CLUB has merged with TRI-COUNTY CAMAROS and has become the

TRI-COUNTY CAMAROS SWFL CHAPTER.




Tri-County Camaros is the most elite and most active Camaro Club in the country and we are honored to be asked to become the third chapter in the state!



On 30 March 2013 the SWFL Camaro Club met and approved the merger with Tri-County Camaros. Previously enthusiasts were able to join the SWFL club simply by completing a registration form on the club's website. Unfortunately many that signed up never followed through and became active in the club.



Membership requires commitment of each member. In the future the club may not accept all individuals that indicate they want to be members; so please do not send any money and ask 'where is my shirt?' If you want to become a member of the Southwest Florida Chapter of TRI-COUNTY CAMAROS the only way to achieve that is to come out and become active in club activities and indicate your willingness to follow the tenets followed and enjoyed by the membership. Yes, we are a Camaro club, but to us it is much more than that. We are a group that puts the people and friendships first. The cars are great but let's face it: at the end of the day it is a car. We are not about quantity membership numbers. We are all about quality.



A minimum of at least one monthly meet will be set up for the chapter. The meets may be local or we may travel as a group to various activities to include joining our sister chapters for activities. There is a one-time club membership fee of $30. With that fee you will receive one Tri-County window badge, access to club only discounts with the many club sponsors we have, including some of the best performance shops in Florida, and the ability to purchase other exclusive Tri-County merchandise only available to club members.



If this is the type of club that interests you and you think you have what it takes to be Tri-County then come to the club's next meet and let's get acquainted. To learn more about the club, or to contact us, go to Tri-County Camaro South West Florida Chapter.

Id like to thank the Tampa side of the club for having such a strong showing at our St. Jude's cancer reseach fund raiser. Tri County along with the other folks spinning the rollers raised $3000.00. No cut to the shop or anyone else that showed up. It was all given to the St. Judes representative on dyno day.

More than half of the clubs Tampa section showed up in force!

Announcing June's Club Meet


If you're looking for some fun and excitement in your life…keep reading.



June's meet will be at the Buckingham Airfield located in Fort Myers. A lot of people don't know this but Buckingham Airfield is one of the best autocross sites in the country. Check out this short video to see what it's all about:
:



On Saturday morning, 1 June 2013, the good folks of Gulfcoast Autocrossers, Ltd., (Home of the Gulf Coast Autocrossers) will hold a "test & tune" and Novice School. Cost is $25 per driver and includes a great day testing your car and your driving skills and showing off to friends and family.



But wait…it also includes lunch (burger or hot dog lunch, and a drink. Some people also bring other things to eat like sandwiches and plenty of non-alcohol drinks)! Reasonably priced food items will also be on sale for spectators.



Please arrive no later than 8AM for registration. The Novice Class will start promptly at 9AM and there will be no late entries for the school.



If you want to drive your car on the course, you should bring a helmet. However, if you don't have one some loaners are available. If you'd rather just be part of the club meet that day, hang out and not drive, that's great too!!! You will be able to watch and cheer on club members as they attempt to impress us!



Each car on the track must have identifying numbers. The course follows SCCA standards when it comes to numbering standards. The numbers should be a minimum of 8" tall, with a bold stroke, no less than 1.25" thick. Class letters must be a minimum of 4" tall with a 0.75" stroke. Additionally, the colors selected should be of high-contrast as compared to your car color. They should be easily readable from the timing and scoring RV. You must have your car number, and class letters installed, before tech inspection. Paper numbers and class letters are available for sale in the tech area and are $1 each. Shoe polish and tape numbers ARE NOT PERMITTED (but a little birdie told us that sometimes they permit tape--two inch painters tape would be recommended).



It is suggested you bring lawn chairs, ice chest with plenty of drinks, extra food if you wish, sunscreen, hats, cameras, etc.

June's Camaro Happening

Are you ready for some more fun?

This month's Camaro event will be at Hooters (4411 Cleveland Ave, Fort Myers FL 33901) on Saturday morning, 29 June 2013.

Be there by 1030 to make sure you have a great parking spot.

Come out and be a part of the action.
