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 ;
