President's Message - October 2020

Hello Everybody,

We had 6 Mustangs/Shelbys and 1 Ford GT out for our September 19, 2020 cruise, which will be our last cruise for this summer. There were 11 people who attended the cruise which started at the A & W at 149 street and we cruised out to Onoway and stopped at the Burger Baron, they have lots items on their menu burgers, pizza, subs, ice cream, etc. Everybody had a bite to eat or some ice cream. We socialized for a while and then we took various different routes back home.


We are going to have a meeting on our regular meeting night (third Monday of the month) on October 19 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.


Masks will be mandatory if you are attending the meeting.


We will be limiting the meeting attendance to 15. After you have confirmed that you plan to attend, I will send you the address.


It’s almost that time of year again for our annual executive elections which will be held next month on November 16, 2020 at our Annual General Meeting. There are lots of different positions possibly available and none of them take a great deal of time or effort to do, so if you would like to help run our club please put your name forward. If you are unsure of what the various positions entail, then please contact one of the present executive members and they would gladly explain it to you.


For the month of October, the Cars & Coffee will be held (weather permitting, as we will meet in the parking lot) on the second Saturday (October 10), from 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.


We will decide later this the month if we will hold a Cars & Coffee on the fourth Saturday (October 24). It might be difficult with the weather getting colder and to meet inside the restaurant is probably not possible and still keep a physical distance of 2 meters.

President's Message - September 2020

Hello Everybody,

We had 8 Mustangs and 1 Ford truck out for our August 22, 2020 cruise. There were 13 people who attended the cruise which started at the A & W at 149 street and went out to Calmar to Maggie Moo’s Ice Cream Barn. Everybody had some ice cream either in a cone or a bucket, we then socialize with each other (keeping our distance, due to Covid-19) and then everybody took their own route to return back home.


We are going to cancel the meeting for the month of September, we will probably have a meeting in October and November to discuss any items, pay any bills that we have and the annual elections will be at the November meeting as usual.


We are planning to have a cruise for our club members on Saturday September 19, 2020.

Our annual AMOA Corn Roast is usually held sometime during the month of September, however this year we will not be having this event due to the Covid-19 virus. The rules of AHS and gatherings does not recommend having events where food and drinks are shared. We don’t want to put our club members in a potential situation that could possibly cause some problems.
