History of S2KCA The S2000 Club of America was founded in April of 2001 by Greg Stevens, Brad Stahl, and Sondra Sondregger. After being involved in and observing several other enthusiast sites and clubs, the founding three had a vision for S2000 owners: a not-for-profit club, by owner enthusiasts, for owner enthusiasts. The planning for such a club started in earnest in late 2000 and with the very generous help and guidance of the NSXCA, the S2000 Club of America became a reality in April of 2001.
S2KCA was announced and launched at the very first S2KDays in Asheville, North Carolina the weekend of April 27-29, 2001 at a gathering of 94 cars and owners which, at the time, was a staggering number of S2000s to have in one place. Every paid attendee and sponsor at that first S2KDays was given a one year membership that weekend, making our membership rolls boast over 100 members from its inception! It was a great weekend of putting faces to names we had all become so familiar with, geeking out on S2000s, and making new friends!
S2KDays became our flagship event: attendance is limited to club members as a benefit of membership, and generous subsidies from American Honda have made the event something more special every year! Subsequent S2KDays events have taken place annually and have rotated around the United States (2003 - Austin, TX; 2004 - Breckenridge, CO; 2005 - Las Vegas, NV; 2006 - San Antonio, TX; 2007 - Belterra, IN; 2008 - Lake George, NY; 2009 - San Francisco, CA; 2010 - Asheville, NC), while other events and activities have also been held around the country including a trip to Japan to visit the Honda factory, a tour of the upper Great Lakes, several Winter Wine Tours in California, weekend drives on the Dragon in Tennessee, a weeklong driving our of the Southwest, a driver education event at Laguna Seca, and scores of local events held by the many chapters that form the S2000 Club of America.
Driven solely by volunteer power and enthusiasm, the club is led by a board of directors, who are volunteers elected by the membership for two year terms. Positions on the board include the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Regional Directors who represent six different sectors of the United States. Regional Directors also provide leadership to appointed Chapter Directors, who oversee and direct activities at the local level. However, even outside of these elected and appointed positions, there are plenty of opportunities to contribute and shape the club as a member volunteer, as many dedicated members demonstrate regularly.
In the years since its creation, S2KCA has grown by leaps and bounds, with membership numbers currently exceeding 750. Many members remain active even after selling their S2000! Club events build enthusiasm and encourage camaraderie, and they occur nationwide, usually several per week in various locations around the US, and the next S2KDays is always in the planning stages.
S2KCA is a volunteer organization focused on fun, created and driven by enthusiasm and member efforts. Join up and see what it's all about!
