July Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

To all members that came, my thanks for your active participation and attendance at our June picnic held at Montgomery Bell State Park. All there enjoyed some delicious BBQ with all the fixin’s. By far some of the best desserts I have had in awhile. Not only was the food great but also the overall setting at the Park along with some great conversations and games made the entire afternoon a true pleasure. We should make this an annual event!!

This great picnic was followed by another Club planned event, a “Dinner & Cruise-Summer time and the Livin’ is Easy” to Riverview Restaurant in Ashland City. Although I was unable to attend, I trust that those who did go had an enjoyable time “cruising and dining.” Our thanks to David & Karen Blevins as well as Randy & Peg Pickens for coordinating this event!

Hot weather has not kept outdoor activities from slowing down in and around Nashville. This past month I took in the “Thunder On The Cumberland” boat races. I posted several pictures and videos of the event on our facebook page. If you think NASCAR is dangerous, take a look at these race boat drivers. And they weren’t even in the “unlimited category” – they carry over 2300HP.

Although the Club is making great strides in setting up and coordinating Club sponsored events, I encourage all of you to keep track of the many auto shows, cruise-ins, etc. that are scheduled around the greater Nashville area. If you see one of interest to you and you plan to attend, set it up for other Club members to join you. All it takes is an email to me with the time and location and where to meet; I will promote it for you via an email blast to all Club members. Who knows, a simple invite may encourage several others to join you in a great time.

Announcements: This month’s club meeting is set for July 21. Unfortunately I will be unable to attend since I will be in Oregon enjoying some great hiking. However, Ray will be taking over and conducting the meeting in my stead.

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

Club Events:

Our next Club planned event will take place in August for “Mustang Alley” in Somerset, Kentucky. This will be 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 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 have attached a letter of introduction to the Club and the Show as well as the Show’s flyer. You may use both in your efforts to contact potential donors. Remember, all monies generated at this event go to funding our Endowed Scholarship Fund at MTSU.

On October 1, the “Dickson Fly-In & Cruise-In Show” in Dickson TN takes place. This is a Club supported event and this year, thanks to Jim Chism, the Music City Mustang Club “Phil Utley Memorial – MCMC Endowed Scholarship” will be the recipient of 30% of all food proceeds. This is an excellent opportunity for us to grow our funding. I look forward to seeing 100% participation at this great event by Club members.

On October 22 the Club will be hosting another high speed driving event. 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, so please invite all friends as well as any car clubs that would have an interest in a day of high speed fun! 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.

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

March “Mustang Trivia”
Question: Which TV show boosted the sales of Mustangs more than any other show produced?

Answer:
Charlie’s Angels (1976) probably before many of you were born – is credited for this sales increase. In the show, Farrah Fawcett’ s character drove white-with-blue-stripes Mustang II Cobra.
