The general objectives of the Club, to which its
members are joined together and mutually pledged, shall be furtherance
and promotion of the following:
PRACTICAL BENEFITS OF CLUB
- 1. The enjoyment of sharing good will and
fellowship derived from owning a Citroën automobile and
engaging in such social and other events agreeable to the membership
and in harmony with the Club's general objectives.
- 2. The maintenance of the highest
standards of operation and performance of the Marque by sharing and
exchanging technical and mechanical information and experiences.
- 3. The establishment and maintenance of
mutually beneficial relationships with the Importers of Citroën
cars and parts into the United States so that the Marque shall
prosper and continue in its unique leadership as the world's
- 4. The cooperation with other Citroën
Clubs throughout the world through the exchange of ideas and
suggestions, and cooperation with any national organization of Citroën
Clubs that may be formed.
How do these General Objectives translate to
practical benefits of Club membership? Below is a list of some of the
reasons to join our Club.
Such a strong list of reasons to join a
Citroën Club cannot easily be disregarded. If you are the owner of
a Citroën automobile, or want to become such a person, then
membership in a club is the only practical way to maintain that dream.
If you try to be an owner without being a club member, your life will be
very difficult, indeed!
- 1. Of course, the most important reason to
join is that you will receive the fine newsletter, "Pacific
Citroën News". The dues you pay go 100% to the costs of
publication and mailing of this newsletter. The newsletter contains
news of upcoming Club events, reports of completed events, technical
and mechanical hints, advertisements, letters from members, and
worldwide Citroën news such as new models, rally winnings, etc.
- 2. As a Club member, you are able to enjoy
club events without the guilt of being a "freeloader". Our
Club has a wide variety of events, and it is certain that some of
them will appeal to you. For example, in a given year we have had a
Winter dinner at a classy restaurant, a Spring gimmick rally that is
a lighthearted competition, a May-June Rendezvous meeting attended
by 40 or more Citroën, Renault, Peugeot, Panhard, and other
fine French cars, a Summer "Raid" or camping-driving trek
to Massachusetts, and an Autumn weekend trip to the Mt. Rainier
- 3. As a Club member, you may receive
advice, parts, and assistance from other members to keep your car on
the road. Recently a member in a city over 250 miles from Seattle
was visited by two other members whom he had never met, and they
quickly got the problem DS running and on the road again. At no
cost, of course! That's the spirit of the Club!
- 4. And finally, as a Club member, you
become a part of the International Family of Citroën
enthusiasts, which is the strongest automobile-related international
fellowship in the world! If you enjoy traveling internationally, you
won't find a friendlier or more helpful set of acquaintances
worldwide. Just two examples of recently completed international
meetings: first, in 2002 in Massachusetts was the I.C.C.C.R. meeting
attended by over 700 Citroëns and their owners; the other was
the 14th World Meeting of the 2 CV Friends, held in Austria in 2001,
where over 4,000 cars, and their owners from over 30 countries
congregated for a vacation week of fun and games. Participation in
events such as these requires membership in a Citroën Club.
