Our Tin Lizzies of Albuquerque, President Vaughn Rockafellow, (he insists he is not related to the Standard Oil family) wanted me to ask for meeting program ideas. We like our programs to last about 15 minutes.

Any and all comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks

15 minutes! It takes longer than that to get most of our members out of their cars. You can always do "show and tells' Have different ones bring odd or unusual parts/accesories to talk about. One of our most popular meetings is our "silent auction" which brings in a lot of funds for the club each year. Guys bring Model T parts and the gals bring baked goods. We auction them for funds for our club Christmas party each year.

Kirk, don't forget your club members. Some of your own members will have excellent programs. Also try other hobby clubs--Model As---model railroad persons etc.

Gee wiz,15 minutes? that aint much time.What would a program consist of?Demonstrations or a speech type thing?

Oh Lordy,I hope they dont git the idea in the Tarheel T's for everybody to start giveing speechs!!!!!!!!!! :<0 If you want a mental picture of me giveing a public speech,just watch the town meeting segment of Blazing Saddles when the old mountian man stands up and "speaks" in Genuine Frontier Gibberish.

I do know what gatherings i attend in the local chapter,the tech sessions are the 1's I about break my fool neck trying to get to so I can learn something.
15 minutes,that is about how long a plate of cookies last at our gatherings.

An interesting subject is model years, serial numbers and casting dates - and the relationship between them. Model years differ from calendar years. Casting dates vary greatly in relation to serial numbers and model years. Styles over lap model years ( an example are the 1914 style open Model Ts that were made and sold during the "1915 model year." Have members bring the serial number and casting date (and model year if orignal engine). Makes for a lively meeting.

Darel
Thanks, and it would help improve our knowledge of the Model T. I enjoy the story and pictures of your 1910.
