The banquet for the annual meeting was held last night, and it was outstanding! Mark Mahoney and the Orange County Model T Chapter did an absolutely wonderful job. You almost had to be there to believe it.
Many awards were given. Tom Miles was awarded the Rosenthal award, the most prestigeous award by the MTFCA.
A special, unanounced guest also made an appearance - none other than Jay Leno himself!
Jay recently bought a T and is enjoying it very much. The word is that he drives it to work every day. Jay Klefoth and Russ Gruenewald went over to Jay Lenos place yesterday to help out with the T. Do we call this Jay helping Jay?
All in all, it's been a wonderful annual meeting. May thanks to all those who helped (and it seems like their whole chapter did).
Fordially, Keith Gumbinger.
Thanks Keith for the kind words. The members of the Orange County Model T Ford Club wish to thank all in attendance for the weekend and at the Gala Saturday evening. This was a labor of love for our club, and I believe we started the Centennial Celebration with a bang! The party will continue in Indiana in July, and we hope to see all you there.
You're welcome, Mark.
Everyone will have to be sure to read the article on this wonderful event in The Vintage Ford.
Too bad it was the same weekend as the Big Three Swapmeet in San Diego. I would like to have attended. Because of this, I was unable to meet with two members of the board who wanted to visit.
