Has anybody seen any more about this?

IMHO ..... you guys are too hopeful and too focused - time for the old saying about a watched pot and water boiling
Remember how long it took to get the Slingshade released? How about swingarm recall parts?
Enjoy the ride now and let Polaris do what they do ...... if it ends up being awesome you'll have lots of miles, even more smiles, and you just might be pleasantly surprised if they launch something that meets or exceeds your expectations

Are you frickin kidding me? Yesterday I get a post card in the mail announcing Club Slingshot. Tells me to join them May 10 or 17 2018, and member packets are shipping this summer. Just a bit late don't ya think.
I received my club packet the other day...it includes a membership card saying I’m already a member but I have to confirm it on their site. Plus a 20 page full color booklet.
It says nothing about dues.
Each dealer is allowed to sponsor one club.
In the 70s we started a custom van club we had about 20-25 members...with nice jackets and customized embroidered club patch. We paid dues and had parties and went to different “truck ins” around the country. These were usually a long weekend event sponsored by other van clubs. The had contests/trophies and entertainment. Parts Venders and van customizes would show up. Our club presidents van was featured in a national van
Now the question becomes how much will your local dealer be willing to do for its sponsored club. Discounts would be nice and events for the club would be nice. Putting on an event where you invite other clubs to attend is a major doing...finding a proper venue, security, venders, entertainment, hotels. Major planning. Our club never held anything like that. Most of us slept in our vans with porta potties and coolers. Self contained.
You can’t sleep in a slingshot.... : (
If the slingshots rockin’ don’t bother knockin’
Distance between clubs would be the biggest factor...nobody (other clubs) is going to drive several hundred miles for a one day event like a picnic or Halloween party. And if it’s longer what do you do if it’s outside and it gets rained out? With a van you can spend a rainy day in it if you had to....I always took a cabin tent to use as a bathroom/ storage closet.
You can’t fit a porta potty, sleeping bags, coolers, extra clothes and tents in a slingshot. There are many limitations to consider.
