President's Message - June 2020
We are going to have a meeting on our regular meeting night (third Monday of the month) on June 15 at 7:00pm. This will give us a chance to get some bills paid and organize any events and to discuss any other items.
The meeting will be held at Darryl’s Dog House in Nisku. If you plan to attend, you will need to RSVP to Craig (by email or phone), so we know exactly who and how many people are attending. We will be limiting the attendance to 15. After you have confirmed that you plan to attend, I will send you the address.
We are going to get our Cars & Coffee going again. We will hold it on the second and forth Saturday of the month for this summer, as there is probably going to be limited car shows this year.
Cars & Coffee is held on the second & forth Saturday of the month. 10am til noon at the A&W on 149 Street & 111 Avenue. They have a large parking lot, so bring out your Mustang or other Ford and have a coffee or breakfast with other AMOA members. Any other Ford fans are welcome to join us.
You can bring your own coffee in a mug or get one through the drive through at A & W.
We are planning to have a cruise for our club members on Saturday June 20. We have a few ideas in mind for where to cruise to and will make a final decision on this at our meeting on Monday June 15. If you have an idea for a cruise route or destination, please let me know as we will probably hold a cruise each of the month during the summer.
If you plan to attend, you will need to RSVP to Craig (by email or phone), so we know exactly who and how many people are attending.
We will keep our Physical Distance of 2 meters and adhere to all of AHS rules for Covid-19 for all of these events.
We will be tentatively re-scheduling the Freedom Ford Show & Shine until Saturday September 12, 2020. We will hopefully be able to hold the event on this date, but we will re-analyze this in late July or early August to determine the feasibility of putting on this Show & Shine.
President's Message - May 2020
We cancelled our last 2 meetings on March 16 and April 20 due to the Covid-19 virus. Our next scheduled meeting is on May 18. My thought is to probably cancel our meetings month by month until things start to get back to normal. So, the May 18, 2020 meeting will be cancelled, we will re-evaluate in June, to see if we could have a meeting on the scheduled date of June 15, 2020.
We need to have some bills paid and cheques issued, so we sort of need to have an in-person meeting sometime in the near future. I am not sure when that might be, but I am hoping that we could get together in June. I will see how things go in the next little while and possibly hold a meeting somewhere (maybe a parking lot, a park or somewhere else as I don’t see us being able to go to Freedom Ford anytime soon) even if it is only the executive and a few others by limiting the number of attendees to under 15. We will evaluate this and let everybody know when we have a decision on a meeting.
I have talked to Amanda at Freedom Ford and we will be tentatively re-scheduling the Freedom Ford Show & Shine until later in the year. The new tentative date will be Saturday September 12, 2020.
We will hopefully be able to hold the event on this date, but we will re-analyze this in late July or early August to determine the feasibility of putting on this Show & Shine.
I am thinking about having a couple of cruises around the city or surrounding area over the summer, as I am assuming there will be very few or no car shows this summer. We can do this as long as we all keep our Physical Distance of 2 meters and adhere to all of AHS rules for Covid-19.
We will probably have to limit the number of people attending any cruise, but we could possibly do the same cruise at different times on the same day, this would allow those that wanted to attend to do so. If you have an idea of a potential cruise route or destination or any other thoughts about this, please contact me.
We will be suspending the A & W Cars & Coffee monthly event for the next few months due to the Covid-19 virus.
Stay Safe and we will get through this unprecedented time that we are all in right now.
