Presidents Message For September 2016
Friends of the Model T:
This summer we have had a lot of fun and a variety of events. We still
have a number of events in the coming weeks. All Fords Day in Sheridan,
the Arvada Harvest Festival and the Surrey Ridge Picnic/Tour ends the
summer with a busy schedule. Also, at our September General Meeting, we
get a chance to see pictures of Mary and Greg
So far this year we have had 27 Model Ts participate in events. This includes a couple lapsed members but they will remember to send their membership in soon.
Heidi Patton reports that since January 1, 2016 our website has had 1,588 unique visitors and 2,023 visits. We are a small club and it seems to me that this is quite a bit of interest.
For the remainder of the year we can look forward the Veteran’s Day Parade in November. Also we are planning a lunch for the October General Meeting on Saturday 10/22. I’m still working on the where for this event.
I have talked to several members about doing a clinic or workshop this fall. A couple of the ideas kicked around were making T oil check tools and parking chocks. This would give us some options to gift cards for prizes at events. Let me know if this is of interest to you, if you have some suggestions or if doing so violates one of your patents.
Also part of fall involves our club’s traditional Board phone calls to our members. We call to say hi, remind folks about the Annual Banquet and ask members to volunteer for the Board if they can. I hope we can catch you at home and visit a bit. I also hope you will consider volunteering when we call.
Mary Esterl our Club Secretary informed the other Board members some
time ago that her schedule demands that she not serve on the Board next
year. Those of us on the current Board that volunteer and are elected
The Banquet to be held in January will be this Board’s last event. It will happen close to our 50th anniversary on January 29, 2017. We hope to make this a special event. We hope to find a restaurant or other facility that will allow enough time and separation from other patrons to socialize and visit. Please call with your ideas.
In addition to the Banquet in January we have formed a committee to plan a proper event in the spring to celebrate 50 years of Pedal Pushers. Dana Holdaway has volunteered to chair a committee to plan this event. There are many details to work out. Dana presented to the General meeting on Friday and outlined some ideas. This event will be in the spring. A picnic at a location with enough parking for 50 Ts, member trailers and modern cars and a covered area.
Dana would like an event with a goal of 50 Ts. Maybe we will fall short of the goal. Maybe not. Regardless, we would like to get a picture of as many Ts as possible for the history of this club and to send to Vintage Magazine. Contact Dana if you are interested in this committee. We will probably have the first meeting in early winter.
