June Club Meeting

Hello Ford Fanatics,

John Wilson’s Cars, Coffee and Pancakes breakfast fundraiser for pancreatic cancer was held on a beautiful Saturday morning with several members and cars in attendance. The CECA event held at High Plains Raceway this past Saturday had 44 cars and 60 drivers have fun with plenty of track time for all and another day of good weather.  Thank you to all the club members that participated in these events and volunteered their time in assisting in the success of the events.

One last plug for the Ability Connection Colorado  Concours this coming weekend at Arapahoe Community College. The show runs from 9:00 until 2:00 p.m. and cars need to be in place by 8:00 am. If you choose to just walk around, entry for spectators is $10. ACC is looking for volunteers for two hour shifts to help out. Free admission and a lunch if you would like to save a couple dollars and donate some time to see the show.

The Havana Cruise sponsored by the Collector Car Council of CO will take place on the afternoon of June 8.

The following weekend is the Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup (Fathers Day weekend.)

Please see previous eblasts for flyers on upcoming events.

We are working out the details for an outdoor meeting/barbeque for either August or September; details will be forthcoming.

Our monthly meeting will be held at Frank the Pizza King, on this coming Thursday, June 6 at 6:30 pm. Frank’s is located at 4701 South Broadway, Englewood 80110.

Enjoy your cars and the warm weather!!

Joe
