Old Business

The Club has 28 paid family memberships so far for 2022. The day after the August Club Meeting, FRMC held a Cruise Event to Echo Lake Lodge outside of Idaho Springs.  19 Club members with 12 Mustangs drove from Jason’s Deli in Lakewood through Morrison and Bear Creek Canyon Road to Evergreen and then on Squaw Pass Road to the Lodge which will be closing for the foreseeable future later this Fall.  Our members took up two long tables at the Lodge for lunch and, while the food service was predictably slow, everyone enjoyed the day and the beautiful drive.  Pictures are posted in the Gallery section of the Club website.
The latest batch of FRMC polo shirts have been picked up by Tom Ferguson and he will trying to get them delivered before the September Club Meeting.

New Business

   The cruising season is still in swing and a drive down Colorado 105 from Sedalia to Rosie’s Diner in Monument could be in the cards later this Summer/Fall.  Member input would be appreciated.
Dan Ryhal has once again graciously offered his mountain home in Pine for the Fall FRMC Chili Feed.  After much discussion during the August meeting, either Saturday or Sunday, October 15th or 16th have been picked as the dates for the event to be held concurrent with the Club’s October Meeting.  If any member prefers one day over the other, let Tom Ferguson know.  Otherwise, we will most likely pick Saturday the 15th at our next Club Meeting.  Oh, and the Broncos play on Monday night so there is no conflict with the game.
We need to start checking on locations for the Club Holiday Party in December.  Again, member input would be appreciated.
And don’t forget John and Cam McNurney’s Cars and Guitars Party Saturday, September 10th.  This is always a great event for car enthusiasts.  Details are posted below and a flyer is on the Club website under the Bullitt-N Board section.  RSVP John at so he can plan the food and drink requirements.
