    Is it particularly active in the central jersey/shore area? Do they do drives and meetups? I’m a member of PCA, but all their good events are the NNJ region not the jersey shore so they are a pain for me to get to most of the time so I don’t bother.

    Thanks,
    Corey

    Corey, I would say absolutely. COVID-19 has slowed us this year. I have been a FCA member for 4 years. I’m also the NJ Chapter President. #9178530245

    Where do you hold most of your events? Are they mostly North Jersey, Central or are there any shore events?

    Most of the NJ events are in Central, NJ.(majority of memberships). But events are held(hosted) by members in all areas. Honestly, we could use more shore events, but they exist.

    For a complete list, I refer you to the FCA website...Prancing Horse magazine, multiple discounts from sponsors(including international adventures).

    OK, just joined. Hopefully larger get togethers will be allowed in NJ soon so I can start meeting people from FerrariChat in person. Everyone seems pretty cool here.

    Cheers,
    Corey

    It looks like it since there is a link from the main site. I did notice a lot of the links are broken on the NJ region site and the information is old. I hope someone will be updating it soon.

    Hey Big Tex, I'm still lurking in the background. I am not Regional Director or Pennsylvania Chapter President anymore but I do support Patrick Linton and what he does. This is a good question and it's sad to say the FCA in general and the Penn-Jersey Region has a lack of passion. Many members ask this question and few will help to organize anything. The Ferrari Club of America is a member driven club and unfortunately new member don't drive their Ferraris enough to stimulate their passion.

    My advise to members is the club is what you make it, if you want local events, then you have to organize them. The FCA is not a country club with a staff.

    Which is probably why there are FB groups to do the same type of things, there are no dues as well.
