Old Business

Membership dues for 2019 are due at $30 per family with $540.000 collected to-date.  So far for 2019, the club has 18 paid family memberships and 3 approved non-paying memberships including 2 members who joined in the last third of 2018. 
With Wendell Salas unable to attend April’s meeting, there were no new Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup developments to report. 
The Club’s March 23rd visit to the Shelby American Collection in Boulder was well attended and a nice BBQ Lunch was shared at the nearby The Rib House in Longmont.

New Business

April 17th is Drive Your Mustang Day in recognition of the 55th anniversary of the Mustang’s introduction to the world. 
The Club is tentatively planning a road trip on April 27th to the Erie, CO Spirit of Flight Center Air Museum.  President Standiford will send out a notice to the members with details on the outing once he has confirmed our visit with the museum as it is open by appointment only. 
Also, it looks like the Club will have at least five member vehicles making the trip to the Rio Grande Mustang Club Show in Albuquerque, NM over the Memorial Day weekend. 
The following list represents some of the most likely events to be pursued by the club in the upcoming months.  Times and dates will be determined closer to the events based on club input and site availability.
