Presidents Report September 2009

The Spring Mustang Muster and State Concours is now a fond memory and was a hugely successful
event. Sydney turned on magnificent weather and the wind factor was minimal.

The Holroyd Gardens looked resplendent and the 160 Mustangs in attendance glistened in the sunshine. The former Mayor of Holroyd, John Brodie, has always been a strong supporter of the event since its inception and wrestled the microphone away from me during the presentation to congratulate the Mustang Club on a great day and more importantly the wonderful atmosphere created by the members. In his words “whatever you’re doing, keep doing it”

I must thank the huge efforts of Wayne and Karen Byrne, John and Doreen Chapman, Keith Speer,
Mario Compatangelo, Richard Griffiths, Kerry McDonagh and Eddie and Sharon Hadley in the
organization and running of the event.

Also, ‘thank you’ to those who judged (a tough job!), directed cars and helped pack up at the end of the day. Naturally it would have been for naught if the members didn’t turn up; and you did, in force, to create a spectacle in the park.

We also appreciate the support, both financially and in product, of major sponsors,
Shannons Insurance and Mothers Car Care Products.

The 3 levels of judging worked very well with 10 Original and 4 Modified Mustangs being judged in concours, 16 judged in display (driven concours) and the rest looked over by the invited dignitaries in the Show ‘n’ Shine. Full results in Eddies report on the day and the concours trophies will be presented and the general meeting on September 16, which starts at 7.30pm.

This event really had something for everyone and from the comments made by the owners who judged the display class, they not only learned from the experience, but enjoyed it.

Well done to Mal Cave from Dubbo who won the long distance award and to Paul Landman who, even
though not a member, drove his ’68 GT500 Shelby from Melbourne to enjoy the day. That’s one fuel bill I’m glad wasn’t mine!!!

Any constructive comments on how to improve the day are welcome.

With more fine weather on the horizon enjoy the many and varied runs we have organised for you.

Enjoy those Mustangs.
