I have owned 4 Beetles, 3 from the sixty's and now my 03 Turbo S.

About a year ago I found the local VW club, The Greater Toledo Volkswagen Enthusiasts, nice group, very friendly and welcoming. But as the name implies it's a all Volkswagen and me I'm a Beetle guy. At there event I met a guy Dumbluebeetle, who turned me on to NB.org, love it here, with my other Beetle friends.

And with that and my job and a courier I have noticed several cool Beetles around NW Ohio and SE Michigan so I have started my own car club, The Black Swamp Beetles. The name comes from this area of NW Ohio, it was once know as the great black swamp, hence the name.

I have a yahoo group, but I can't figure out how to post the link here, and I may start a Face Book page for the club as well.

I figure that I'll make up some business cards for the club and every time I see a cool Beetle, I hand them a card and invite them to join, or I'll leave one under there wiper if I see one parked.

I have 1 member so far, Hi Tami.

I think a local Beetle club will be cool, cruises, GTG and crashing the local American muscle car shows.

So check out my group, there are NO Dues to join. And lets try for world domantion. ;):D

Hey there Kevin! The business cards are a good idea but I can tell you from experience you won't get tons of members that way. We have cards for our LX car club and we may only hear from 1 out of 10 of the cards we put out. We put them on every LX car we see (Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger, Dodge Magnum, and Chrysler 300). The best way to get members is through forums like this one. We started out with four people and now have over 130 in two years. It's that 'if you build it, they will come' kind of thing.
