Mark your calendars for your club’s next General Club Meeting. The meeting will begin at 11:00 am, Saturday, March 14th at Cappy's Pizza, 225 Lafayette Street, London, Ohio. Please plan on staying for a lunch of pizza, subs and/or salads afterward.
During 2001, a small group of fun loving and benevolent car enthusiasts, each with a cult-like passion for the Shelby Cobra and a desire to help sick kids, joined together to form The Ohio Cobra Club.
The purpose of the club is to promulgate admiration for the Cobra Automobile, regardless of make or type; to support the City of London with the London Cobra Show and to support and raise money for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In an effort to assist with the fundraising part of the mission, during 2006, the club attained 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
Throughout the year the club organizes social events such as club meetings, parties, dinners, cruises through various scenic areas in Ohio and helping other club members with their Cobras. Each year, a beautiful Cobra replica is raffled off as the club's main fundraiser. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by club members at car shows and events. Raffle tickets can also be purchased online.
Every year since 2005, the club has hosted the London Cobra Show. Although the show is called the London Cobra Show, or simply LCS, most of the events take place in and around Columbus, Ohio due to lodging needs in London. The show is always held in June, following the week of Father’s day, and spans the entire weekend. The main show takes place on Saturday in downtown London.
LCS is a combination of car show, social event, and charity fundraiser. Show attendees have the opportunity to see hundreds of beautifully crafted Cobras, buy t-shirts, memorabilia and visit the many vendors that exhibit at the show each year. The winning raffle ticket, that fulfills one lucky person’s dream, is drawn each year at our Saturday evening dinner.
If you love Cobras and want to help sick kids in need, come join The Ohio Cobra Club.
The Ohio Automobile Dealers Association announced today that they have canceled the 2020 Columbus International Auto Show. The OADA officials say the decision came to limit the spread of the Coronavirus and comply with the governor’s executive order.
Friends will be received on Saturday, March 7, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. until noon at the McIntire, Bradham & Sleek funeral home. The funeral home is located at 216 E. Larwill Street in Wooster, OH.
Braden D., the winner of our 2016 London Cobra Show raffle stopped by our booth at the Cleveland Auto Show and purchased his chance on winning our 2020 raffle car. If you are in the Cleveland area Sunday, stop by and purchase your chance as well.
Attendance at this year’s show was reported to have been approximately the same number of attendees as were at last year’s show. The good news is that those working the club’s booth selling raffle tickets for our 2020 London Cobra Show’s raffle, were able to increase ticket sales by some 62% over the number of raffle tickets sold at the 2019 Pittsburgh show.
