MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT FOR AUGUST 2014
I can't believe that another month has just flown by! We had a very enjoyable day at the North
Cascade Fly-in at the Concrete airport. The weather cooperated wonderfully as people made
good use of the available shade. I know that there was also a lot of competition for other member's
time what with all the car shows going on in the Puget Sound area. I hope that you had an
enjoyable time at those events, too.
While I'm not a big car show person, as far as entering them, I will be participating in two car
shows in the near future. The first will be at the Props and Ponies fundraiser for the Heritage Flight Museum at the
Skagit Regional airport or, as I remember it, Bayview airport. It will be held on Saturday, August 16th. That, unfortunately,
means that I will miss the outing to Cama Beach State Park led by Grant Lawrence. I was at the airport
last year with my '06 Saleen and enjoyed the sounds of numerous flying war birds. P-51 Mustangs (V-12s) and a
F8F Bearcat (BIG radial) are two varieties that I remember making some wonderful sounds. The loping idle of that
big radial sounds great, too.
The other show, that Sharon and I regularly attend, is the International Mustang Meet which alternates between
the U.S. and Canada. This year, it will be held on the outskirts of Vancouver, BC in Richmond on Labor Day weekend.
Next year, the show will be held in Missoula, MT. We've been attending this show for a number of years and
have made a number of friends in both the U.S. and Canada. In fact, some of the email jokes that I pass along are
from one of my friends in Calgary, AB.
Even thought the t-shirt sales were disappointing, to say the least, the car show made money that we will be able
to disburse into the community. Again, I would like to thank Cindi and all who made the car show successful. (The
sound of the crowd going wild!)
Enough of my ramblings. I'll see you at the next meeting and then it's off to Canada, eh?
