President’s Message

The schedule of Summer events is keeping the members of the RMTC very busy! Mother Nature caused the Front Range Air and Car Show to be postponed until July 22nd. This is one of the days that the RMTC is committed to driving at the Mecum Auction, so we have no choice but to keep our commitment to Mecum! The TUCC Urology Center car show with Bennett’s BBQ on June 4th, was well attended with 17 T-Birds and 24 members and one guest. Other cars were there but the RMTC made the show a success. Many of the Cancer patients and survivors commented and appreciated the variety of beautiful T-Birds on display! Mike Naughton Ford had their annual Friday car show on June 9th. The RMTC had 14 T-Birds on display and everyone was treated to a free Bennett’s BBQ lunch and door prizes. A BIG THANKS to Mike Naughton for having us back. That night, workers for the Havana Cruise were treated to a free Dicky’s BBQ meal and door prizes at the NAPA Havana Machine Shop. Details about the Cruise were shared and T-Shirts were distributed to the volunteers The Havana Cruise sponsored by the CCCC on June 19th, was another huge success. The RMTC had 22 T-Birds on display with 35 members helping run the Kaiser Permanente sight at Havana and Parker Road. THANKS to all that helped and to Sheryl Murphy for organizing the crew to sell event T-Shirts. The 47th Mystery Cruise on June 17th, started at the Lookin Good Restaurant with 17 T-Birds carrying 34 RMTC members and went south on Santa Fe to Hwy 105 into Monument. In Monument we were joined by the members of the local VMCCA. The parade of cars went east getting to HWY 83 or Parker Rd. We caravaned through the eastern part of Colo. Spgs. and then went west ending up driving through the beautiful Garden of the Gods. Our lunch stop was at the Mason Jar Restaurant in Colorado City. A HUGE THANKS to Ron Theisman for helping me put this Cruise together. The June 18th Father’s Day Car Show at the Lincoln Meadows Retirement Center in Lone Tree found 19 RMTC T-birds and a 1961 Chrysler New Yorker owned by the late Joe Svigel Jr. on display. All participants were treated to a gourmet 4 star lunch in the Lincoln Meadows Restaurant. Another BIG THANK-YOU to Woody and Lorelei Linwood for making all the arrangements for this Father’s Day gathering.

Upcoming events include the BIRD BATH sponsored by the CCTC to the Royal Gorge on June 24th and 25th; the 4th of July Parade in Highlands Ranch; the Annual Picnic, Elections and Awards located in Pelican Point at Bear Creek State Park on July 15th; the Mecum Auction on July 20th – 22nd and the 48th Mystery Cruise to who knows where on July 29th. The HORSEFEATHERS all Ford Show with the Early Mustang Club is on Aug.5th. PLEASE fill out the reservation form and mail it in ASAP so the EMC can organize the show field. (Remember there is no charge for display vehicles unless you want a goody bag, t-shirt, dash plaque and to be judged). We have a very busy summer schedule and the Officers and Directors of the RMTC have worked very hard organizing and planning all of these events!!
