What's New with
Our last meeting was May 20, 2012 in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois.
Our next meeting will be in June, 2012. Time and Place TBA.
Now in our 7th Year!
WHO WE ARE-- Formed in 2006, we're fans and collectors of the world's greatest toy --GIjOE! Our club is officially known as the Central Illinois GIjOE Collector's Club, and since 2008, we've been an officially recognized chapter of the the world-wide GIjOE Collector's Club.
OUR MISSION-- is to provide all GIjOE fans in the Central Illinois region with a regular place and time to meet other collectors to swap or sell gear, exchange collecting and customizing ideas or tips, and share current information on locating figures, vehicles and accessories-- all while making new friends!
HOW WE MEET-- Since we're all spread out, this is definitely a "driving" club. We gather at member's homes and other locations throughout the year to view collections, tour museums, arrange photo shoots, etc. In the past, we've met in such cities and towns as Urbana, Champaign, Tuscola, Algonquin, Spring Valley, Paris, Quincy, Rantoul, Sherman, Bloomington, Colona, Aurora, Chicago and even Kansas City, MO!
HOW TO JOIN-- If you'd like to join the mighty CIGCC, simply send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to add you to our ever-growing roster of GIjOE devotees. There are never any dues or other "official" requirements to belong to our club. Everything we do is strictly voluntary. Please join us today! --Mark Otnes
