Your club’s February Board of Directors (BOD) meeting is scheduled for 5:00 pm on Tuesday, February 11, 2020.

If any club members are planning to attend this BOD meeting, please check with a BOD member the day of the meeting to make certain the meeting will proceed as scheduled.
During 2001, a small group of fun loving and benevolent car enthusiasts, each with a cult-like passion for the Shelby Cobra and a desire to help sick kids, joined together to form The Ohio Cobra Club.
The purpose of the club is to promulgate admiration for the Cobra Automobile, regardless of make or type; to support the City of London with the London Cobra Show and to support and raise money for The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In an effort to assist with the fundraising part of the mission, during 2006, the club attained 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
Throughout the year the club organizes social events such as club meetings, parties, dinners, cruises through various scenic areas in Ohio and helping other club members with their Cobras. Each year, a beautiful Cobra replica is raffled off as the club's main fundraiser. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased by club members at car shows and events. Raffle tickets can also be purchased online.
Every year since 2005, the club has hosted the London Cobra Show. Although the show is called the London Cobra Show, or simply LCS, most of the events take place in and around Columbus, Ohio due to lodging needs in London. The show is always held in June, following the week of Father’s day, and spans the entire weekend. The main show takes place on Saturday in downtown London.
LCS is a combination of car show, social event, and charity fundraiser. Show attendees have the opportunity to see hundreds of beautifully crafted Cobras, buy t-shirts, memorabilia and visit the many vendors that exhibit at the show each year. The winning raffle ticket, that fulfills one lucky person’s dream, is drawn each year at our Saturday evening dinner.
If you love Cobras and want to help sick kids in need, come join The Ohio Cobra Club.
On Saturday evening, January 18th, club members from all over Ohio and the western edge of Pennsylvania enjoyed the club’s annual AFTER THE HOLIDAYS PARTY at the Hickory House restaurant located on the western edge of Columbus. Everyone was surprised by a visit from Santa Claus and his Elf helper.
Your club is also planning to display a Cobra and sell raffle tickets at the following car shows:
For the 20th anniversary of the Double Venom Spring Fling / London Cobra Show, your club is proud to introduce the 2020 London Cobra Show’s raffle car.
