We couldn't believe it when we realized it had been THREE years since this site began. Thanks to the support of our growing community, we are able to keep things rolling in full steam. We celebrated here at home base in South Florida with a weekend bash.<P>

Our sponsors for this event made things even better by donating parts which we raffled off throughout the weekend. <a href="">Rollin Car Customs</a> donated a full Vizage body kit. A stainless custom exhaust came from our friendly neighborhood tuner, <a href="">Toyomoto</a>. <a href="">Rotora</a> hooked us up with a full set of slotted disc rotors, and <a href="">Pro Lex Performance</a> sent down their popular stainless heatsheild and radiator panel.<P>

<IMG SRC="/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=5&stc=1" ALIGN="LEFT" HSPACE="5" VSPACE="5" ALT="">We had other sponsors, who deserve mention for their generous donations. <a href="">Carson Toyota/L-Tuned Parts</a> sent us a goodie bag which included TRD shifters, oil caps, Tom's products, keychains and more. <a href="">JM Lexus of Florida</a> showed up with shirts, hats, keychains, toys and more. JM also donated a set of L-tuned sway bars at our Friday night car show.<P>

Friday evening was a blast. We all met at dusk at a local car show. We quickly filled up an entire row, totaling out at about 22 cars. The evening ended with a trip to the Ale House, where everyone drank, ate and socialized.<P>

On Saturday, those who were able to get up early, met for lunch and we did some IS300 trivia for prizes. We then made our way to the pro-kart track for some killer competative racing. The weather was threatening, but that didn't stop the 14 people from coming out to race. After 3 races of 12 laps each, our bodies we killing us. These little racers are no joke, pulling 1 1/2 g's in turns. Getting poured on in the final race was even more fun, as spin outs and collisions were plentiful!<P>

A few members who were able to stay in gear got together and met in South Beach Saturday evening. They cruised the strip for a few hours getting plenty of looks at the caravan of IS300's.<P>

Sunday afternoon was the big picnic and prize raffle. Once again the weather threatened, but hey, that is Florida for you. We lucked out and the clouds completely avoided our fun. Tony's dad Skip helped out with the grilling, and after everyone was stuffed we started to raffle off some prizes. Our raffle funds went towards the server you are now accessing the site through, so thanks to all our South Florida people who supported the cause. The weekend event closed with some photo shoots.<P>

Sorry you missed out? So are we, but you can check out some photos from this event in our gallery. Once again, thank you to all our great sponsors, and of course our local supporters. Without you guys we wouldn't be where we are at today. We hope our next anniversary meet can be in a more centralized national location so everyone can come!
