Because FOG covers such a large state, we have both statewide and local events.  The statewide events shown below include both FOG-sponsored events as well as other events that may appeal to our members.

Local events consist of monthly breakfasts and tours that are organized by members in various parts of the state.  One of the major benefits of owning a 356 is the opportunity to meet and socialize with a truly marvelous group of people.  These low-key events are a great way to get to know your fellow members. 

Interested in Volunteering?

Please note we are looking for volunteers to organize local gatherings in certain areas of the state.  Please contact Peter Bartelli, our Event Chair, for more information:
