Club Scuderia

It means "Stable of Horses"

I am going to register the club on Monday if it's available.

Lots of work will go into this and I expect your input but most of all enjoyment of your stable.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Along the same lines as the Ferrari Club.

Driving Meets / Track Events / Social events.

It's intent is to have more local participation from owners and enthusiasts.

Aware there is a forum with the same name but don't see any conflict after reviewing - Ferrari Life is and will always be the forum of choice.

The name will have to be verified and is open to change.

This will be more of a job - not being naive about this undertaking.

Tim feel free to toss out a club name - ball is rolling.

I'm in for whatever you need Doug. I guess the bylaws fell through? Let me know where I can help out at.

Actually the by laws has zero to do with my decision - it was really based on the posts here that showed very little care for the club.

Anyone that knows me I am not going to invest my time to make this a mediocre adventure.

I expect a lot out of myself and everyone else - we can all be part of something great and eliminate the bureaucracy for owners and enthusiasts to enjoy Club Scuderia just as we all do on Ferrari Life.

Chas can head up the West Coast Region.

A couple of quick thoughts:

1) Open it to all makes and models, you can limit it to exotics only, no ricers if you don't want them, but don't allow just Ferraris

2) Have solid leadership in place - yeah, it can be tricky to get enough involvement, and keep it from being a good ole boys club, but having open elections every year is a must.

3) Have planning meetings early on to set up a schedule of events, and post those events early and often. That'll get people involved, and you hopefully won't have to put on the flyer "we need 10 RSVP's in order for this event to happen"

4) Personally, I'd like to see some kind of charity angle - maybe organize a show similar to EAS to benefit a group

5) Ask everyone that's a member to help in some capacity - whether it's organizing an event, serving on a committee, or trying to drum up membership

Those are just some quick thoughts. Obviously, this won't happen overnight, but Doug, I really think you may be onto something here!

in that case, maybe the first event could be pin the tail on the ?



I do agree it should be exotic/highline, not just Ferrari; that's a small group in STL. maybe Ferrari/Maser/Lambo/Aston/Porsche to keep it focused but still reach an audience.

other than track day stuff the Porsche club doesn't do a lot; you could get those guys pretty easily I would think. of course you'll have to tell Timmy that you're meeting somewhere else to keep him away

No wishing you are in part the reason!
