Club Impact was one of the largest scooter clubs in Southern California.
It thrived during the mid 80s to the early 90s.

Everything began with Ernie Von Epp inviting a few of his friends to his home in order to discuss the possibilities
of starting a scooter club in Long Beach. Who knew that those 8 kids would start a group that would
positively affect the lives of many and host more than a handful of house parties, a few large concerts,
a few big scooter rallies, and help launch the musical careers of a few celebrities that we all know today.

The club was the foundation that formed many bonds of friendship, with some remaining strong
and continuing to this day. Let’s give it up to Ernie for bringing us all together that one afternoon. And being
the original leader of the club during a truly magical time. This reunion is open to everyone.
Whether you were a part of it, participated in the events, or was in the scene during that time,
we would love to see you.

Let us rekindle connections and refeflect
back on the great times we share.
And although we all travel different paths as we get older, we should not forget where we come from and, especially,
we should not forget those who we have lost along the way.
Let’s come together again and make even more great memories.
