2024 Event Planning Has Begun!

Your Board of Directors met Sept 6th and planning for an ambitious 2024 calendar of social & performance driving events has begun! It takes considerable time and effort to plan over 50 events as you might imagine, with our goal to always present as many of those as we've been able to confirm by the end of the year. We like to keep things fresh, combining new ones with past favorites, and we know our 2024 season won't disappoint!
