Welcome to the forums, PictureMe and congratulations on the purchase of your new 300c.
Please click on the link below which will take you to LXF and the dedicated forum for the SoCalLX Club. They have a well organized calendar of regular and one-time events listed where you can pick and choose what interests you. They have a couple of regular, monthly events that you will notice and it's a great way to come out and meet other local enthusiasts. They are even planning some summer events with CenCalLX Club.
Good luck and let me know if you need further information. bruno
