http://www.planet-9.com/gallery/files/3/caymanclubbeach.jpg After much consideration we have decided to re-ignite the "Cayman Club" from days past. For those who don't recall, this site was originally known as CaymanClub.Net and later morphed into Planet-9.com. For some time we've considered ways in which to bring some of the focus back to various activities that used to happen during the old Cayman Club days. What we've decided to do is form an actual car club. In fact we will be filing for 501(c)(7) status for the club to be a non-profit just like PCA or any other similar car club. The Cayman Club will also be entirely separate from Planet-9.com which means no advertiser support which in turn means we need YOUR support and donations to get the "Club" off the ground. Donate Here! If you donate before Jan 1st you may be able to deduct your donation from your 2015 taxes!

The Cayman Club will be focused on a variety of items including:

  • Social Events such as cars and coffee style gatherings
  • Track Events where members can meet and assist each other with track support
  • Online events such as broadcast tech sessions or Forza 6 races
  • Regional Officers / Experts
  • Newsletter (potentially both print and electronic tbd)
  • Members helping Members
  • Anything else our members can think of!
By no means is the new club a replacement for Planet-9.com, in fact the club website won't be an automotive forum centric website like this one but rather an informational gateway to club activities, an enabler for club. If you'd like to become an inaugural member of the Cayman Club then simply Donate at the link above and your account here will receive a special Cayman badge
next to your name and when Cayman Club activities kick off you will already be a member! If you are interested in becoming an active officer in the club please let me know via PM or Email and I will follow up.

BTW Up front I want to state that the Cayman Club is in no way meant to exclude our Boxster or other Porsche owners but simply a realization that if we are going to start a club we need to specialize first in order to be successful. Later, if resources permit, we could always form a Boxster Club as well. We don't want to bite off more than we can chew, but we aren't going to exclude people from joining if they don't own a Cayman, even non-owners can join the club if they are interested!

Done. I would encourage others who haven't donated to the Cayman Club or Planet-9 to do so as this website is an invaluable resource that is "open source" and available to Porsche owners all around the world.

Ken - I think you'll find that although you may get the CC approved as a 501(c)(7) entity (like PCA), it won't be eligible for 501(c)(3) status and donations won't be tax deductible.

This is great news! I was around with the Cayman Club when it first started and met some great people over the early years. We had a lot of drives in upstate NY including a ride at Limerock race course. Hope to see everyone again soon!

I think you need a Canadian. I'm in, and I wouldn't have gotten a tax break anyway. :cheers:
