WHO WAS THE FIRST SC?
What we know of as a social club (with the patches and rockers) was The Neverlanders. There were Disney clubs before but not like we know them now. The clubs before were small groups and dance crews. But Neverlanders were the first SOA style club.

OK, SO WHO WAS AFTER THAT?
Second was the Hitchhikers, and Main Street Elite was third (we think). Things get a little muddled around there. There were a lot of clubs that got patched after the first two. Main Street Elite was the first mega club though. A lot of groups started from those who didn't make it into those clubs and out of that came the explosion of clubs. -Jack Glynn Mathis (SC Socialite)
THERE ARE SO MANY CLUBS, HOW DO I FIND ONE THAT RIGHT FOR ME?
Check out the Join A Club page. It has great information on finding and joining a club.
DO YOU NEED TO BE AN ANNUAL PASS HOLDER TO BE A MEMBER OF A SOCIAL CLUB?
Each club has different rules about this. Some say yes, some don't care, and some take it on a case by case basis.
I'M WANTING TO JOIN A SOCIAL CLUB WITH MY FAMILY BUT WE LIVE OUT OF STATE HOW DO WE FIND A SOCIAL CLUB THAT WILL BE WILLING TO ACCEPT US AS MEMBERS?
A great way to find a club like that is to post in the Facebook groups (links can be found in the header and footer). Every Club is different, but with a little work you can find one that fits.
IS IT A GANG?
No. We're not a gang, and have no gang affiliations. Just a group of Disney fans....with really cool vests.
WILL I HAVE TO PAY FEES TO BE IN A SOCIAL CLUB?
Every club has different rules on fees/dues. Some have none, some it's just buying your own patch, and some have monthly dues to help with buttons and other costs. However, do not trust a club that tells you you have to pay upfront to be a member. If they are asking for money upfront, it's a scam, not an SC.
