Kern County, CA
November 1st & 2nd, 2013
Hosted by Raul Fileto and Charlie Barnes
It is with great pleasure to announce the SR20 Convention in the West Coast! Having been to two SR20 National Conventions out on the east side of the country, I gained great knowledge and interest in hosting one a little closer to home. I've been mentored by the great Joemaican aka happynole aka Uncle Joe and have been on the phone with him for hours on end. His advice and direction has given me great confidence to go ahead and proceed with the program.
For those of you who don't know what an SR20 Convention is and would like more info, Check out the Convention section of the forum by clicking on this link: SR20 National Convention
To sum up what the SR20 Convention's are about with one word, PEOPLE. The people share one thing in common with you and that is the sr20 platform vehicle. B13/B14/B15/P10/P11.
