The 12 day of Christmas is past. What can we do to keep the holiday spirit alive? By tradition, we have planned an event after the rush has past, usually in January. Scheduling has caused us to have our holiday party rather late this year. Any kind of Christmas theme is a stretch for the fourth Saturday in February. It’s after Ground Hog Day, Valentine’s Day will be over. Our government observes Washington’s Birthday on the previous Monday, to provide them with another three day weekend. Fortunately, February 22, 2020 just happens to be SAAC-MCR Appreciation Day. A day to celebrate the club, it’s members, and all the things the club stands for: the preservation, care, history and enjoyment of the Ford powered vehicles from Shelby American and the enjoyment of all performance vehicles from Ford Motor Company.
We hope you will join us in this celebration.
Let’s look back at 2019.
All enjoyed Ford vs. Ferrari at the MJR Marketplace Cinema in Sterling Heights, MI on Saturday at the matinee. We then went to El Charro of Fraser for dinner and discussed the film.
Most agreed that it was an excellent film. If you ever met Carroll Shelby, heard him speak, heard or read stories about him, you know the events of the past are not static. So if someone points out a discrepancy or two in the movie, it’s unlikely that Mr. Shelby would have concerned himself about a few details. He would approve of it as a good story.
Thanks to Rich Tweedle putting this plan together.
And a thank you to our friends at Team Shelby for posters, shown below, handed out after dinner.
