Founder Jim Judd started The Villages Convertible Club in February 2009. A dozen convertible club owners showed up at the first meeting at the Laurel Manor Recreation Center. Residents in attendance expressed an interest in driving their convertibles to restaurants around The Villages plus possible day tours to attractions around Central Florida. The first club trip was advertised in April 2009 as "A Gulf Coast Adventure to include a remote beach, an archeological site, riverside lunch and a nature boat ride". Reservations were made & guaranteed for 24 seats on the boat. After 14 people signed up, a notice was put in the Daily Sun about the trip. Within 10 days, the sign up increased to over 72 members. Since there was only one boat available, the boat captain agreed to do three separate runs that day. Later in 2009 the club incorporated as a Florida non-profit corporation and also obtained Federal IRS tax exemption as a 501(C)7 club.
