November Newsletter

Greetings fellow Club Members:

The weather is starting to cool down and the Holiday Season is rapidly approaching. This November newsletter, along with our upcoming Club meeting on Thursday, November 19, marks the end our 2015 “Club meetings year.” Please remember that there will not be a December Club meeting. Instead, we invite all members to come together for our annual Christmas dinner/party.

This year the event will take place at Hermitage Church of Christ, 4004 Lebanon Pike, Hermitage, TN. Although the address says “Lebanon Pike” the entrance to the Church is off Bonnaspring Rd. just past Gabes Electronics if you are headed south on Lebanon Pike. The time will be from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. As in the past, the Club will provide the main dish as well as refreshments. We ask each Club member to bring a side dish and/or desert dish for all to share. In addition, we will be playing “dirty Santa.” Your entry to play is one wrapped gift with a value of $15 - $20 to place under the tree.

As part of our Christmas celebration, your Board is asking each Club member to participate in spreading some joy to those less fortunate or in need. This year we are requesting that each Club member donate an “unwrapped gift” for a child. We will be collecting all gifts at the Christmas dinner/party on December 12. Our gifts will be delivered in the name of the Club to Champ’s Holiday House at the Monroe Carrell Jr. Children’s Hospital that next week. Since our gifts will be distributed at a health care facility, there are special guidelines that must be followed. Please go to Once there, scroll down to “Give & Volunteer” – once open, scroll down on this page to “Toy and Supply Donations.” This link will open to a full listing of gifts that may be donated. We will try to have an active link set up on our website shortly.

Should you not be attending the Club party and wish to donate a gift, you may bring a gift to the Club meeting on Thursday or give me a call and I will make arrangements to pick them up.

Although a “chill” was in the air, it did not stop a “crowd” from participating and enjoying the 3rd Annual Fly-in & Cruise-in at the Dickson County Municipal Airport on November 7. Several Club members were actively engaged in transporting, photographing, parking as well as feeding guests at the event. As you may know, this event is supported by our Club and provides an opportunity for all of us to share a day of fun and camaraderie. My thanks to all who came and supported this great family event. For those not able to make it, there are many pictures posted on our facebook page. Hope you can make it next year.

Another fun event since our last Club meeting was the “Fall Cruise & Picnic” drive headed up by Jeff and Robin Billings. Those who participated enjoyed some great backcountry roads and beautiful scenery, not to mention getting the “ponies” to run on a clear day. Thanks to Jeff and Robin for heading this up for the Club.

On November 5, your Board held its quarterly meeting. During this time we re-visited and discussed several items, they were: (a) The Club’s on-going partnership/sponsorship with O’Reilly’s and their provision of trophies for our annual car show. Tim Forkum is continuing discussions with O’Reilly and we hope to have a workable resolution by the end of the year;

(b) Continuation of the Gary Alsobrook memorial award. Gary was a founding member of the MCMC. As an active participant within and at Club events, he always exemplified the true spirit of generosity as well as the on-going promotion of the preservation and enjoyment of the Ford Mustang. This award will be given to a Club member that best personifies the attributes exhibited by Gary during the November meeting of each coming year starting in 2016. Detailed information on nominations and selection criteria will be sent via email to all Club members in January;

(c) We continue to have on-going discussion and dialogue relative to MCA’ s potential involvement in our Memorial Day 2016 HPDE in Dawsonville, Ga. Whatever the outcome, Jim Chism will once again be coordinating this great yearly event.

During our Club meeting this Thursday, I will be taking orders for the “Art of the Mustang” 2015 edition of Motorbooks, or any other book from their site that you may wish to purchase. The Club price is $27.30 including the tax – the book retails for $50.00. This would make a wonderful Christmas gift for someone. For more information and detail of the book, go to and search for “mustang.” Bring cash or check to the meeting if you wish to order this or any other book.

During this time of the year, many of us begin to reflect back on the year’s events that have affected our lives and those whom we care for – one such event was the untimely passing of our Club member, Phil Utley on November 9. I had the opportunity on Saturday to attend Phil’s “gathering of friends” at the funeral home. I met Pam, his wife, and shared with her the Club’s condolences on her lost. She was greatly appreciative and shared that one of Phil’s recent happy moment was his “emcee” role at our September car show. It is the little things in life that make life worth living ---- The Club has made a contribution in Phil’s name to PetSmart Charities Foundation, demonstrating his love for animals.

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!!


November “Mustang Trivia”
