Florida Whips Driving Events Calendar
 
  • Florida Whips member events are listed in bold with a white background.  Other events of interest are in italics with a grey background.
    • Regional Florida Whips event organizers must be Whips members in good standing and need to submit an event application form to their region at the summer annual planning meeting, and once approved, send the event form to the Florida Whips secretary (secretary@flawhips.org) for board approval, insurance coverage, and placement on the calendar by August 1.  All forms must be submitted electronically (not paper) so they can be distributed among board members.  "Pending" items are awaiting insurance coverage.
  • Non-Whips Events: For other events of interest, please contact calendar@flawhips.org to be listed, with one line of information and a link to your own website for further information.  If a paid advertisement was included in the newsletter, that document and additional event information can be linked to your event as well, on request.
