We invite you to become a member of the Black Knights Car Club. Our members come from many area communities in both Iowa and Minnesota. Our meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at V.F.W. Trophy Room, S. 1st St., Estherville, IA.
According to a former officer of the club, "You aren't required to own a classic or antique car to join. The main purpose of a club like this is to have some good, clean fun. Our members enjoy being around a great group of car enthusiasts and giving back to the community through community service projects."
The Black Knights get involved in many community and individual projects. A recent project enabled them to make a donation of $1,100.00 to an individual. "We really like the fundraisers that have matching funds. All of these activities make us feel like the club is making a difference," the former officer stated.
Members or persons in their families are eligible to apply for a $500.00 scholarship to a college auto body/mechanics program. The club annually awards two $500.00 scholarships.
Cruises and car shows are the typical fare of most car clubs, and the Black Knights hold several of both. One very popular attraction that deviates from the norm, though, is the fall "Airport Drags" event. Former drag events have brought a day of family fun to nearly a thousand spectators and participants.
