Fall has arrived and the majority of the RMTC events have now occurred. Were you able to get your T-Bird out and enjoy the various events that have taken place so far? If not, what are you waiting for? There are only a handful of events left for 2017. There were two events in August that I still need to review. First, is the August 26th Mystery Cruise #48 to the Littleton History Museum. Sixteen T-Birds with 30 members and 2 guests showed up to go on this Mystery Cruise There were many displays about historic Littleton and several outdoor farm venues for people to visit and understand the early rural life in Littleton. Afterwards we all went to Reinke Brother’s parking lot and walked to
Merle’s for lunch and door prizes. THANKS to Bob Kimball for organizing this cruise. The second event was the car show at Frank’s Pizza in Englewood on the 27th. Debbie Spickard was there early to hold our parking area and set up the new RMTC vertical banners (TOO COOL). Twelve T-Birds with 19 members and one guest were part of the 60+ cars on display. Jim Merritt decided that he would buy everyone pizza. THANKS Jim, we are a hungry bunch.
The month of September is always a very busy month for the RMTC and this year was no exception. It all started with the Windsor Cruise-In for which 10 T-Birds and 16 members were on hand. There were only 3 T-Birds from Denver and the rest from the northern group. About 300 cars of all types were at the show and everyone received a T-Shirt with their registration. A good time was had by all and maybe we recruited some more new members! The Labor Day Parade in Louisville on Sept. 4th was well attended. The RMTC had 21 T-Birds with 39 members and 8 guests participating. Afterwards we filled the Carrabba”s Italian Grill parking lot with T-Birds. No meeting was held this year due to the seating arrangement at the restaurant. THANKS to Bob Kimball, again, for making all the arrangements for this event. The Specialty Auto Auction on Sept. 9th had about 150 cars to be auctioned. Sixteen RMTC members spent a hot day driving the cars and enjoying one another. This auction does provide additional funds for the RMTC treasury. THANKS to all who donated their time and talents!! Sept. 10th was the 46th Annual All Ford Day sponsored by the Early V-8 Ford Club. Thirteen T-Birds with 29 members joined the 300+ Fords that gathered at Sheridan High School for a day of music by the DaBoogie Man and hula-hoop performers. The day was once again very hot but we did get our spot by the trees and plenty of shade. Everyone who registered received a cool t-shirt, dash plaque and sticker. THANKS to
all who made this show another great success for the Early Ford V-8 Club and represented the RMTC.
There are still two September events left: the Landmark Lincoln Show on the 23rd with door prizes, food and drinks provided to all and the 49th Mystery Cruise to see the turning of the colors on the 30th. October events include the Reinke Brother’s Pumpkin Follies & Goat Show on the 14th. We need 20 cars to earn the $200 for our treasury.,Pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, brats and chips are being provided at no charge! BRING YOUR OWN DRINKS!! The final Mystery Cruise #50 for 2017 will be on Oct.28th to who knows where? More details about these upcoming events can be found elsewhere in this newsletter or you can call me at 303-589-2232. Fall is now upon us and the stormy weather will be here soon. PLEASE plan on getting to a few more events before mother nature keeps the birds garaged!! The officers and directors of the RMTC work very hard planning and organizing upcoming events so I hope to see you and your beautiful T-Bird soon!
Call of the fall is upon us!!
