It's time to introduce you fine folks to the Slingshot Owners Group.
We've all probably talked about it since the first day thinking about a Slingshot. How do I get more info? Where can I find other owners? What cool products are available in the aftermarket and how do I install them?
You find a post on Facebook, Instagram, or even a forum and you learn about a rally - an event where other owners are going to be with group rides and vendors showing their products. You clear your calendar and you go the event - you have a great time meeting the people you only knew online, you see some great products, and you go on some group rides. You really connect with some of the folks you met and you continue to communicate with them about your Slingshot and the new products you see become available.
The next year, you go to the event but it's just not the same. There's even more friends you have made and the atmosphere has changed somehow but the rides just aren't what they were last year. You can't quite put your finger on it but it isn't as awesome as it was.
Well those same conversations happened in the summer of 2018 with a bunch of friends in the corner of a parking lot at an event. Now, these friends were only brought together through ownership and participation in a community focused on the Slingshot but their conversation turned into how to solve the problem. Creating an organization for members and by members was the solution, an organization that ...
- puts owners first and is not-for-profit
- is dedicated to owners
- helps get more owners involved
- supports small owner vendors and their innovative products
- holds affordable events
- is staffed by owners and enthusiasts
It didn't take long for the group to grow. It grew in ideas and it grew in participation until the not-for-profit Slingshot Owners Group was born. Hours of planning turned into days and days to weeks and weeks to months until here we are today, your Slingshot Owners Group (SOG) Board of Directors, bringing to you the best of the Slingshot community.
