North DFW Camaro Club

Is there a camaro club or group that meets near Frisco Denton McKinney area? If not is anyone interested in one, maybe a quarterly ride/cruise and a yearly trip to like Galveston or Pardre or something. Maybe a monthly dinner or such. Let me know what ya'll think....

It does (and it's not that much), but you can save that money by using many of the sponsors of the club that offers discounts to club members. We are having our annual meeting at Humperdinks in Arlington this coming Saturday (9th). Check out the website and see what you think. I been a member for the past two years and has been a blast. We have raised money for the Flight Crew Memorial in Grapevine, collected money and toys for Toys for TOTS and have monthly outings and other things.....

Yeah…..PAY UP!!! Or don’t come around!

You would think it would be….”Anyone is welcome but only paid members will get the free lunch”.
Then again this is the mentality I’ve heard about this club. I see they are about to change officers so maybe it’s just the current regime. I’ll probably never find out unless I pay dues first though.

I've heard about another club called Texas F-Body. I think that's their name. I just got my Camaro so I haven't had a chance to meet up with any of the clubs just yet but hopefully the other club won't beat me up for dues up front.

Anyone know of any get togethers that don't cost money? I would like to just meet some other Camaro owners in my area without getting stiff armed into paying money to do so.

What is the LSC lounge? Is that something else you have to be a paid member to see?

Wow, never seen so many people get bent out of shape over $25 a year. The club does so much for charities and give aways for members it's amazing they only ask $25 a year from members. I haven't had a chance to make it to all the outings/meetings in the last few months because I have been super busy, but I have no doubt I will be renewing every year.

I don't think it's as much about the money as is the way that people are pressured into it. At least that's what I've heard and now based on what I see here I can believe.

I mean lets see how the so called president comes on here and basically tells people who seem to be intrested in coming to an event that they can't come unless they pay the membership first. Is it the money, not really because you would spend almost half the dues just on the lunch but they way he comes across is actually kind of offensive to us non-members.

Then someone else who we assume is a "paid" member comes on here and basically says "hey, dumb ass, if you would read the posts from the lounge you would know this stuff". Thing is I have yet to find the so called lounge and I didn't see anything posted in the Lone Star Club section of this forum.

I don't know any of these people in the club and I'm only going by what I've heard and what I've read here on this forum but when I asked my salesman about any local clubs I was told basically what I've seen here so far. So, if the salesman already knows about it then it must be pretty evident that it's a common practice. From what I'm seeing here I'm starting to beleive what I've heard.

Whoa, calm down. I didn't get "Hey dumb ass," from that post. The LSC forum is here (http://www.lonestarcamaro.com/forum.html), anyone can sign up, you don't have to pay.

No one is pressured to join, EVERY single event I can remember has been come one came all except for this December lunch (this is paid for by the club so that is why it is club members only, reservations have to be made so they can't just have anyone show up and not have room). You shouldn't believe everything you read here. There are to many keyboard warriors that make mountains out of mole hills. Register over on LSC, post/get to know the people, come to a gathering to get to know a few people in person and come back here to report how many times you got pressured to join.

There are some people that have a grudge against LSC, I don't know why, but they sure like to spread it around.

Come meet some folks in person and I'm sure you'll have a good time.

+1 Couldn't have said it better my self. I showed up. Hung out, and decided to join. Haven't regretted it for one second.

If anyone wants to see what this club is about they need to come check it out for themselves and not base there opinion on what someone else says.

No ... it's a thread on the forum
No .... you do not haft to pay to be on the forum .
I also said "If this helps.." as in I was just trying to help another Camaro owner out and this is what forums are for correct ?
As this is why I put smilies after very thoughtful Replys if it was taken otherwise it was not meant to be that way .
I went to several meets before my Husband & I joined this Club in North Texas
Area . We were greeted respect and kindness and were never pressured in any way I got my Camaro in April visited with different groups I joined LSC in August and still visit with friends that get together non-club meets . I also heard some rumors about LSC but I didn't let those stop me from checking them out and I found that that's not at all the way I was greeted nor was it the way I greeted them they are an awesom group of people . So I can speak of both sides having been a non- member and a happly "Paid " member of this club I look at it this way I've met some awesome Camaro People either way
This reply is meant it the most respectfully intent ..
I hope you have a blessed and wonderful Day. ..

I was tied up, the five dollars taken out of my wallet and told not to eat so many hotdogs unless I was going to pay up the $25.00 yearly fee.
Have not regretted it yet!

And the so called President who you claim is annoys people, must definately be someone different from another club. The president I know from that club knows probably most Gen5 owners in the nation and has great relationships within GM such as Scott Settlemire, etc.

He has represented this club in a positive manner, meeting with other Camaro clubs from around the U.S. and the guy will wake up at 3:00 in the morning to drive 100 to help you change your tire.

Yeah, must be thinking of someone else.

Based on the LSC web site it's supposed to be Camaro21 which is who made the statement above to basically not come unless you pay to be a memeber first. Unless the Camaro21 user on the LSC site is different than the Camaro21 on this forum. I'm assuming they are one in the same though.

I was just basing my thoughts from what I was told by my salesman and then what I saw on this thread. I was told that I would probably be pushed to join right away if I go to a club event and then one of the first posts I read with the LSC says to not come unless you pay your membership first. I do know that some times what someone puts in writing can be misinterpred by the person reading it but that's what it says.

I'll see about coming out to something next year but I'll be honest, I'm going to be apprehensive from the get go.

1. We ARE having an officer change-over this Saturday. It is a 100% paid by LSC event, which is why it's a members only event.

2. Almost everyone that has responded here in this thread is a member of LoneStarCamaro, including myself. We are all just people, so you'll always get a mix of personalities, just like in any other group. Most of us, are wonderful people who like to hang out and get to know each other, look at our Camaros, and tell jokes about Mustang owners. (I'm only kidding, by the way).

3. The event for January is not posted up yet, but when it is announced, we'd love to have you (or anyone else for that matter) come out to check us out.. for FREE without any pressure to join.

BTW
Texas Fbody association beats you up for a yearly 20-25 for club dues.
Again this to cover expenses such as food, etc Not unusual at all.

LSC

I just wanted to chime in here since I used to be a member but not currently. My experience with LSC was very pleasent. I was in no way pressured into joining at any time. The few events I was able to attend while (and while not) a member were very enjoyable and everyone I met and talked with were very nice and approachable. So MrsTXCamaro don't believe everything you hear. Go hang out and make up your own mind. You won't be dissappointed I assure you. These are great folks who do great things through the club. If I can ever find time to get to some of the events I will definately be joinning again! LSC rocks in my book!


This is a personal opinion and was not solicited by LSC, any of it's members or affiliates.
