Western New York Camaro Club?

Is there a Western New York branch in existence?

Looking to get out to some gatherings this year...I know there are good chunk of members in the area...just not sure if we're organized and I don't know it or not!

Thanks, all!

UpstateC5

Don't know about western NY specifically, but we cover the whole state and have quite a few members in your area. Check post 1 of our club thread for events and also for the link to the member list to find members in your area.

I agree with mclark, Update C5 is very active all over the state. Some events might be a little far away, but even some of those will be worth going to - especially those at Watkins Glen!

I went through Buffalo twice last night (including a stop at Duff's) taking my son back to Fredonia. I didn't see ANY Camaros, just a bunch of "rolling roadblocks" and people who can't seem to understand how toll booths work.

If someone starts up a Western New York Club I hope they allow Canadians to join.

There are many...and there's at least 10 or so people on the forums from the Buffalo Area alone...I think a lot of folks around here keep them parked more often than not. A little sad - but still...maybe all the need is a nice...local...REASON to take'em out.

I know there's several in Buffalo area, I usually see at least a couple on my way through. This time all I saw was a fake Rousch looking Mustang.

I like the idea of a WNY club but I think Upstate C5 has the state covered very well and I'm a proud member of this club! I enjoy the events I participate in with them although it's usually only 2 or 3 a season. This year hopefully more!

I see Tons of Camaro's in WNY throughout the summer season and know about 5 UC5 members here. The only problem is that there is so much more going on locally but no one to co-ordinate C5 events or participation here. Pretty much every night of the week there's a cruise night somewhere. We just need to get together at some of them but not necesarily UC5 sponsored.

I do beilieve that there is a Western New York Camaro club but it has all generations of Camaros, not just C5's. I saw them at the Olcott show last year, which by the way Upstate had an outstanding showing there from all over the state!

So, what do you say to maybe between you and I we try to co-ordinate local get togethers? Of course you are invited to join UC5 with us and join all the UC5 fun!

Oh, ABSOLUTELY!

I in no way, shape or form intended to take away from the Upstate C5 club. You guys do great things! My thought was merely what you described - there no local get-togethers going on that I know of - and I'd love to help set something up.

Just as an example - I haven't given it any thought, the Quaker Steak & Lube on Transit has a cruise night Thursdays...all manner of cars come out, but it'd be nice to go as a Camaro5 group.

Oh yea! That has to be one of the more popular cruise nights in town! We'll just need to run it by Mark and Andy for their UC5 blessing i think! There's many 1 day or weekend shows also. We should look at a C5 showing at the Southgate Plaza show and Marilla shows too!

Great!

I was slightly afraid there'd only be 2 or three people interested in this - glad I appear to be wrong!

WNY is my home territory too! Being from Wellsville area and having lived in Tonawanda yrs ago. I love the area and more representation up there would be great. I've wanted to do a Letchworth cruise and BBQ.
Here's the WNY Group, http://www.camaro5.com/forums/group.php?groupid=26. It's been dead for some time now. Maybe you guys can revive it and get people posting again.

Count me in, it's closer to me than the ones based in Toronto.

WNY gatherings

I try to attend quite a few cruise nights here in WNY as well as some local shows that some of our Upsate C5 friends can't attend because of the distance. We definitely should get some organization for some local gatherings. Mike let me know as well as Dragoneye if you want some help with this. We tried to start a WNY Camaro club a few years ago, but never took off. I can put together a list of the local cruise nights and shows if you want, let me know.

A list would be great! Should we maybe start a new thread? Maybe "WNY Upstate C5 local events" or something like that. Then we can list cruise nights and special local events like shows and stuff.

Great!! I'm excited, man - It'll be good to have a group of fellow Camaro owners in the area to hang out with every once in a while. And the timing couldn't be more perfect - by the time we can organize a small group, the weather should be cooperating!

If you guys want to organize cruises and get-togethers and such in the name of UpstateC5 Andy & I have no problem with that. Just post such events in the club thread so everyone will know. You never know who might show up. Also, last year we anointed Paul (hobgoblin42) as a core member to be involved in things like this for your area. Just touch base with him.
