Calendar

As our club is small, we tend to partner with other clubs for larger events.  However, we typically hold monthly breakfast or luncheon meetings and workshops.  Items in RED below, are sponsored by our club; those in BLUE are co-sponsored by our club.  Listings shown in PURPLE, are those with recent cancellations and/or date changes.  Other activities shown below, are those that would be of interest to car collector hobbyists in the DC/MD/VA/DE/PA/WV areas.  You can also check these sites and resources: www.carshowz.us; www.CarShowLink.comwww.capitalcruisin.com; www.cruisingmagazine.net; www.specialeventpro.com ;

 NOTE: Some of the flyers attached below, and information above, are for club historical reference and are left here so that others can see the type of activities we do and participate.  Sometimes the Webmaster just leaves stuff 'cuz he's too lazy to clean up the website too.  IF you are an activity chairman of a car club in the DelMarVaPaDC area and want your listing here, please send it to our club at DeSotoClubMD@gmail.com.  Thanks for viewing,

The WebMaster.
