Presidents Report - May 2019
Greetings from Route 66. A short report this month.
The 55th Anniversary Round Up and Vineyard went very well with the car park at capacity. 120 Mustangs of all types including 8 Bosses to celebrate 50 years since their launch.
Thank you to Dick and Robyn Israel who stayed the night before and were there early to hand out lunch vouchers. Also, Ken Buckland helped on the gate and Keith Speer did his usual excellent job promoting the club through merchandise sales and membership throughout the day. The trophy range was expanded for the 55th and a special trophy for the hosts choice of Boss. Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to all who supported this day.
The Muscle Car Masters is back on Father’s Day and the TCM category is back on the schedule. Entry is free up to 9am and you park on the figure 8 track behind the medical centre.
The elections for committee will be held at the AGM in July and all positions are open.
Let the committee know if you are interested to be involved in guiding this great club into the future. Positions that are not elected are the regional delegates and I would like to thank them all for their efforts in their respective areas. This was an excellent initiative that fosters support of events and runs outside the Sydney basin, and is a great way to ensure more members in our state and territory get the opportunity to enjoy their Mustangs.
One of the early adopters and supporters of this program, Reg and Carmen Johnson from Canberra, have sold their Mustang and sent me a lovely letter acknowledging their past 25 years of membership of the MOCA NSW. Of course, they are welcome to stay in the club even though they no longer have a pony in their garage.
Finally, at the next meeting I will have the brick paver struck in recognition of the club's support of the Mustang Owners Museum in Concord, North Carolina.
I have to acknowledge member and future committee member, Tony Galdes who was part of the group who travelled to Concord and helped me to bring back our rather heavy paver to display in the cabinet. (It would have looked sus going through the X-ray at the airport!)
See you soon.
Until we meet again, enjoy your Mustang
