January Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

January 2016, the beginning of another year filled with events and new memories!!

Let me start by wishing all of you a very healthy and safe New Year – may your “pony rides” bring you joy and excitement this coming year.

This year marks the second year of board member participation and time for re-election. Although the actual voting will not take place until the November meeting, I encourage all members to be thinking about whom amongst our active members would best provide on-going leadership to the Club. More information on the nominating process will follow in other newsletters.

While on the subject of membership, let me call out for some help. As you know both Tim Forkum (car show Chair) and Kevin Davenport (Secretary/Newsletter Editor) have been and continue to be very active in our Club activities. However, both are in need of some back-up support. I am asking any Club member that has a desire to assist either Tim with the 2016 Car Show or Kevin with the Newsletter to please see me at the Club meeting or to give me a call at 615-513-6409.

January also marks the beginning of a “new” membership year; hence, dues for the 2016 calendar year are now “due.” Membership dues are $15/year or $10/year if MCA member. Please see Ray Mailloux at our Club meeting or mail payment to him at 7829 Oscar Green Rd., Primm Springs, TN 38476. Membership forms for “new” members can be downloaded at www.musiccitymustangclub.org.

As discussed during our November Club meeting, this year we will re-institute the Gary Alsobrook Award. Gary, a founding member of the Club, was a “Saleen” lover as well as a true Club and auto enthusiast/hobby supporter. Commencing this year, all active Club members will have the opportunity to nominate someone within the Club for the Gary Alsobrook award. The criteria is simple: “The recipient of the award must have demonstrated exceptional support, effort and work within and for the benefit of the growth of the Club during the past year(s)”. All Club members submitting nominees must provide a written description as to “why” and “how” their nominee has met the criteria stated above. The nominees name must be submitted at the October Club meeting and the recipient of the award will be announced at the November Club meeting.

I am pleased to announce that O’Reilly’s will once again be our trophy sponsor for our 37th Annual All Ford Show in September. Many thanks to Tim Forkum, Club Auto Show Chair and to Tom Conquergood, Events Marketing Manager at O’Reilly’s for enabling this partnership to continue!!

In addition to the September show, there are a number of additional events:

1. Mustang Day – April 17 – this is a National Event that will commemorate the day that the Mustang was first introduced to the public at the World’s Fair in 1964. Hundreds of clubs have registered their events – for complete details see: www.nationalmustangday.com. Would like a Club member volunteer to assist in planning a Club event on this day.

2. Mustang Expo/MCMC HPDE – May 27 & 28 – partnering with MCA for this event headed up by our Club member Jim Chism – www.mustangexpo.com. The Club is holding some rooms and we will release on a first come first serve basis - Jim will discuss at our January 21 Club meeting.

3. Mustang Alley – Somerset, KY – August 26 & 27. We will caravan to this event and park as a Club as in the past.

4. MCA 40th Anniversary – Indianapolis, IN – September 1 – 4 – www.mca40th.com - rooms are still available but going fast. Suggest you sign up ASAP for this one. MCMC, directed by Club member Jim Chism, will be the coordinator and event manager for the HPDE on the Indianapolis 500 Track.

5. 37th Annual All Ford Show sponsored by O’Reilly’s and headed up by our Club member Tim Forkum on September 24 in Mt. Juliet, TN.

6. Fly-In & Cruise-In at Dickson, TN – show promoted and supported by MCMC will take place this year on October 1 --- hoping for “warmer weather.”

As you can see, 2016 is already shaping up to be a grand year of “mustang excitement.” All of these events will be posted on our website. Should there be other events anyone wishes to post, please send dates and information to me.

In closing, please remember to send to Kevin or me any articles, news events of interest, stories of trips you have taken, projects you are working on as well as any items wanted or for sale. All must be in Kevin’s hand no later than the Saturday prior to our monthly Club meeting (or sooner) in order to be inserted in the newsletter. The newsletter is your “vehicle” to communicate to other Club members what is happening in your world.

Take care and drive safe!!
Henry
