Civic Club Philippines is one of the biggest and popular car club in the Philippines. It started in the year 2010, when a young Honda Civic enthusiast named Gerard Palma, aka EGboy, wanted to learn more about his car (Civic EG hatch) and seek help in the area of troubleshooting. He then signed-up in a car forum on the World Wide Web. However, the registration was closed. Since he is a Web Administrator as a profession, he used his expertise and created his own website where civic enthusiasts could join and share all their knowledge about the Honda Civic. The first domain and name of the club was “EG Club Philippines” (www.egclubph.com). More and more civic enthusiasts were interested in joining and the club’s members started growing in numbers. However, other Civic enthusiasts were reluctant to join the club at first because some of them owned other Civic generation like EF, EK and ES. The pioneers and members then decided to open the club to all the different Civic generation owners. This led to the change of the club and domain’s name to “Civic Club Philippines (CCPH)” (www.civicclubph.com). In the span of 5 years, our club membership grew to 350+ official members, and still growing.
The CCPH is currently composed of members from the different areas around Metro Manila and its nearby provinces. Each major area is called a sector. The following are the different sectors (in alphabetical order):
Deep South Elite (Southern Luzon provinces like Laguna, Batangas and etc.)
Hayabusa Central (Mandaluyong, Pasig, and Taguig)
Nasty South (Pasay, Muntinlupa, Las Pinas and Paranaque)
Nocturnal East (Marikina and Rizal province)
Northshift (Quezon City, Caloocan, Navotas, Malabon and Valenzuela)
Wicked West (Manila, Makati and San Juan)
Upnorth (Bulacan and other provinces in Northern Luzon)
Every month, each of the sectors meet together, in which some call the sector gathering as an “EB” (eyeball) or an “AGT” (Area Get Together). When all of the sectors or areas meet and gather for a club event, we call it a “GGT” (Grand Get Together), which is also done monthly. We do auto fun runs, meet and greet, wherein we exchange our ideas and knowledge about Honda Civic car parts and troubleshooting. The CCPH does not exists solely about Civic cars but we also value the club’s charitable giving to local causes. We do charity activities 3-5x a year like visiting and doing a feeding program to different orphanages. Indeed, this club is not all about cars, but we try to extend our help to those in need in our own little way.
WHO CAN JOIN THIS CLUB?
- All Honda Civic car enthusiasts are most welcome to join our club, whether your Civic is barely stock or heavily modified.
