Old Business

The Club has 32 paid family memberships for 2021 and 1 approved non-paying membership through the meeting date. 
We have a large supply of Club jacket patches for sale at $5.00 and magnetic name tags can be ordered at $12.00/tag.  We also now have FRMC window and windshield car stickers available for free.  Gary Spencer has an inventory of FRMC ball caps for members to purchase at $18 each.  Each hat carries the Club logo on the front with unique design work on the brims and side depending on the color.  Colors are black, red, and pink and are available by contacting Gary at 
Tom Ferguson received the order for new Club Logo Polo shirts from R&D Embroidery following the Club meeting and they are now available for pickup from him or delivery at the next Club event.
The 2021 Rocky Mountain Mustang RoundUp is taking place as these minutes are being written.  Tom Ferguson was in attendance for two days and can attest that the Club was well represented by Wendall Salas, Gary and Jillian Spencer, Jackie Ferguson, Michael Bateman, and Tom Kay during the early stages of the event.  Some 400 cars were registered by early June.  It was great to meet people from other Clubs and some distant states including Texas, New York,  Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Arizona.

New Business

   It was gratifying to meet the Culbertson’s and Michael Kish at the Club meeting just one day after receiving their membership applications.  We have had a nice influx of new members in 2021, but most of you have not made it to a Club meeting or picked up your name tags you ordered.  Hopefully, we will see you soon!
Larry Snodgrass was busy participating in the Tri-State Swap Meet June 12-13 and mentioned that next year he would like to share a stall with any other members with “stuff” to offer.  The upcoming Rocky Mountain Metro Airport Car and Aircraft Show & Swap Meet on August 7th was discussed as it is one of the top summer events historically held in the area and the Collector Car Council of Colorado (CCCC) is wanting to publicize that it is back after Covid.  It was also pointed out that Gateway Classic Cars has an excellent Cars & Coffee every last Saturday of the month and they are willing to host Club meetings or serve as the start location for Club drives.  Michael Bateman mentioned that he is a Vehicle Vault member and can research a Club event there.  For possible July Club events, Tom and Jackie Ferguson have scouted out a possible Club Drive to Golden Gate Canyon State Park for either July 10th or July 17th and the date will be finalized at the July Club Meeting.  If anyone has a strong date preference they wish to express before the July Meeting, let Tom know via email.  The July Club Meeting will be held at Chuck Warren’s on July 4th (13496 W Center Drive, Lakewood, Co 80228) where nearly all the Denver metro area fireworks displays should be visible from his backyard decks on Green Mountain.  There will be a separate email sent out with more details on this meeting once Chuck has firmed up everything.
