NEGMC May Monthly Meeting and Picnic at Meeks Park – Blairsville, GA & Tiger Drive-In Night – Tiger, GA

The NEGMC May Meeting and Picnic will be held on Saturday, May 20, at Meeks Park in Blairsville, GA in the park’s Shelter 2.  Meeks Park is located West of Blairsville just off US-76 at 490 Meeks Park Rd.

The picnic will be from Noon – 4 pm with an early crew arriving at 11 am to get the charcoal going etc, if you can help your will more than welcome.

The club with provide hamburgers and hotdogs with condiments. Please bring your own beverages and a side dish or dessert to share. Meeks Park does have a new fenced in Doggie Park area. 

After the picnic we will plan a ride through the mountains to Tiger, GA for an evening at the Tiger Drive-in  http://tigerdrivein.com/home/ . The box office and grill open at 7 pm with the movie starting at 8 pm. Although the Tiger Drive-in shows first run movies, we will not know what is playing until the week of the event. Last year pets were welcome at the drive-in but it would be wise to check. 

Before the movie we will have time to check in to local hotels for anyone wanting to spend the night. 

Quality Inn
834 Highway 441 
Recommended by Keith and Deb who stayed here last time

Days Inn

If you want a hotel book early as they fill up, there are not many hotels up there.

NEGMC January Meeting and After Christmas Party

Our after Christmas party will be held on Sunday, January 15th, beginning at 2:00 PM at the Sugar Hill Community Center located at 1166 Church St, Sugar Hill, GA, 30518. The club will provide meat and fixings, drinks, plates, plastic utensils, etc.  Each member is asked to bring a side or dessert.  The Sugar Hill Community Center has a full kitchen with an oven, microwave, refrigerator and several plugs for crockpots.

We will eat first, then have our January meeting and officer installation after which will be our highly anticipated white elephant gift exchange.

If you want to participate in the gift exchange bring a wrapped (without a to/from tag) gift with a value of no more than $15.00. The gift can be either a “real” gift or a “gag” gift. If both members of a couple want to participate, bring a gift from both.  If you are bringing children, and they are welcome, please bring a gift for them. We will have a separate gift exchange for the children so they will not potentially receive something inappropriate for a child.

Because we need to know how much meat to purchase and prepare, we do need to know how many people will be attending.  Please RSVP back to me via email ( jrhayslip@yahoo.com ) by 12/31 to let me know if you are coming and how many will be in your party.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

NEGMC November Club Meeting – November 12, 2016

NE Georgia Mustang Club Monthly Meeting – November

Our next meeting will be on Saturday November 12th at 2PM at Los Vaqueros Mexican; 17 Monroe Hwy; Winder, GA  30680.

This meeting is very important, nominations/volunteers for officers for the two year terms starting 1/1/2017 are due by this meeting.  To refresh, our bylaws state that the VP will step up to the President position for the next term and the VP, Secretary, and Treasurer positions are up for election every two years.  There is some lack of clarity on the VP stepping up for 2017, since our elected VP resigned earlier this year and Lou Manglass stepped up and assumed the position.  If he is willing to step up as President for the next term, and there are no objections that we can’t work through, then we can follow the bylaws, if not then the President position will need to be elected also.  I am going to copy and past the portions of the bylaws that apply to officer elections and also officer responsibilities below.  Please RSVP via email and let me ( Rick Hayslip ) know who will be attending by 10/31 so that we can give the restaurant a headcount for planning purposes.  Also, if you are interested in running for any of the positions, please let me know before the meeting although you can volunteer or be nominated at the meeting.  Remember this is your club, and we do need members participating in running the club and setting the direction of the club.  Please step up if you are able.

  •   9:00 AM – Leave Oakwood QuikTrip – Arrive before 9:00 AM to met other NEGMC members at the QuickTrip located on the NE corner of I-985 and GA 53 and we will caravan to the WalMart in Cleveland.
  • 10:00 AM – Arrive Cleveland WalMart – If you would rather meet at the WalMart we will see you there at around 10:00 AM depending on the traffic along US-129N.

Let me know via email at Rick Hayslip <jrhayslip@yahoo.com> if you will be joining us at the QuikTrip in Oakwood, or if you will be joining us at the Walmart in Cleveland so we know how many to expect.
The December meeting also was when our elections for our club officers for 2017/2018 was supposed to be held.  After nominations which were due by our November meeting, we had one nomination/volunteer for each position so elections won’t be necessary.
Our 2017/2018 officers will be:
  • President: Lou Manglass (stepping up from the VP role he stepped into earlier this year)
  • Vice President:  Scott Mossbrooks
  • Secretary:  Karen Manglass
  • Treasurer:  Cher Hayslip
Congratulations and thanks for stepping up everyone, I look forward to working with you all during the transition and on down the road as we keep the club moving forward.
