June Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

My thanks to all members for your active participation and attendance at the May Club meeting for the re-naming of our Endowed Scholarship Fund. It was good to see such a large attendance at this event and to support Pam Utley during her time of loss.

Also, thanks to all Club members who volunteered their time to support our High Speed Driving Event during Memorial Day weekend. Without your help, this event would not be as successful and as much fun as it has been for 16 years. The weather cooperated with clear skies and mild temperatures. As in the past, those participating in the HPDE had nothing but praise for how the event was conducted and its emphasis on safety. Jim will provide an update on this event at our club meeting, Thursday, June 16.

For those of you who attended, our club member Terry Reinhart open up his garage “Resurrections From Rust” and treated all there to hot dogs, drinks and chips. Terry shared with us some of his projects and future plans. Thanks Terry for the hospitality!!

Announcements: This month’s club meeting is set for June 16. Our special guest this month will be Brad Mueller, Sales Manager for Streetside Classics our newest sponsor. Streetside is currently the largest and fastest growing consignment dealer in the collector-car industry. They offer complete consignment services for private sellers, collectors, and estates. Brad will provide us with an overview of how Streetside assists owners of classic cars obtain top dollar for their rides. For more information, go to www.streetsideclassics.com.

New members welcome! – Please extend a warm welcome to our new member when you meet.

J. C. Arnold, III – 1994 Mustang convertible

At this printing, our active Club members now number a total of 81!

Club Events: It appears that Kenneth Joyner and Gabe Pizzillo started the “ball” rolling with their very successful and well attended Mustang Day dinner and cruise in April. Since this successful event, several club members have stepped up to the plate and volunteered to make our summer an even more active one. This is what makes the Club a “fun” club so I look forward to many of you participating and enjoying the good times planned by our members.

Upcoming for June 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., will be our summer picnic. Event will be held at Montgomery State Park. The Club will be providing BBQ and side dishes along with drinks. We encourage Club members to bring additional items that would complement a “summer picnic.” More information along with a map of the site will follow from Jay Arnold our Newsletter editor. Hope to see a great turnout for this one.

The June picnic will be followed by a great “cruise and dinner event” coordinated by David & Karen Blevins and Randy & Peg Pickens entitled “Summer time and the Livin’ is Easy.” Sounds like a great time to cruise to Riverview Restaurant, have a cool beverage and a meal watching the fish jump. More information on where and when to meet will be provided via email and at the club meeting June 16 for this event. For now, please mark July 17th as the day that the Club we’ll meet and take the ponies for a cruise up River Road for great fellowship and fun. Present plans call for our arrival at Riverview Restaurant, Ashland City around 4:00 p.m. for early “fixin’s.” All planning on going nee to E-mail Randy at randyp08@yahoo.com so we can let the restaurant know how many thirsty and hungry “Sunday drivers” (and passengers) to expect. You can check out the restaurant and their menu at www.riverviewrestaurantandmarina.com. Meet up location and time for a “caravan” into Ashland City will be provided later via email blast. Keep an eye out for this one!

The July “drive and dine” will be followed in August with “Mustang Alley” in Somerset, Kentucky. This is an overnight cruise and car show event set for Friday, August 26 and Saturday, August 27. We will meet at the Kentucky/Tennessee welcome station and caravan into Somerset in time for lunch. Please make your hotel reservations since rooms go fast for this event. I will be coordinating this event and will provide updates on time and location for meet up in early August.

Mustang Alley will be followed by the MCA 40th Event at Indianapolis, Indiana. This is a multi-day event from September 1 – 4. MCMC has been engaged by MCA to provide the coordination and management of their high speed-driving event on the Indy 500 Track. Should be a super weekend for all club members able to attend. Jim Chism will provide updates on this event.

Our 37th Annual All Ford and Mustang Show will follow the MCA 40TH event in late September. The show is scheduled for September 24 at West Wilson Middle School, Mt. Juliet, TN. Lots of volunteers needed for this event. Your help in obtaining some great silent auction items from vendors you frequent would be appreciated. We will provide a letter of introduction about the club and this event next month to assist you in obtaining silent auction items. Remember, all monies generated at this event go to funding our Endowed Scholarship Fund at MTSU.

Ok, and now comes October ---- yep, two more club events are planned. On October 1, the “Dickson Fly-In & Cruise-In Show” in Dickson TN takes place. Although this is a Club supported event, we could use an “event host” to coordinate an early morning caravan into Dixon – any volunteers??

On October 22 the Club will be hosting another high speed driving event. This one will be close to home so ALL can volunteer and participate – no overnight stay required. Our HPDE manager, Jim Chism has obtained the use of the Nashville Super Speedway for October 22. The event will be open to all cars and public participation. All will enjoy Ample on track time at a reasonable cost. Should be a fun event. Stay tuned for more updates, time, etc. on this one.

Whew!!! – Ok November is open, anyone want to take it on and plan a cruise, dinner, picnic, whatever?? Let me know and we can post on our calendar.

All of the above will be posted on our website calendar – www.musiccitymustangclub.org.
