NE Georgia Mustang Club’s Annual Toys for Tots Buying Trip – Cleveland, GA

Good Morning and Merry Christmas!

It’s that time again and we are excited to be shopping with you at Walmart in Cleveland GA. It will be a great day shopping in the morning and having you home in time for Georgia football later in the day. We will start with a cruise from Oakwood, meeting at Quick Trip (QT), our usual meeting spot. We are leaving QT at 8:00 AM, heading toward Cleveland to shop at the Walmart that’s located at 260 Donald E. Thurmond Pkwy, Cleveland GA 30528. Walmart is just off Hwy 129. We will coordinate our plan and hopefully enter Walmart by 9:00 AM. We plan to be finished shopping and have the truck loaded by 10:00 AM. Jackie Jones is providing the truck. We will travel down to Jackie Jones Ford to unload the toys, have our photo shoot and club meeting. After we are done at Jackie Jones, we will cruise to Loretta’s Country Kitchen, 4305 Mundy Mill Rd., Oakwood, GA 30566 for lunch around noon.

Perfect plan: Perfect plans never go as planned 😀

1) 8:00 AM – Quick Trip – 3446 Mundy Mill Rd., Oakwood, GA 30566. We are LEAVING at 8:00 AM
2) 9:00 AM – Walmart – 260 Donald E. Thurmond Pkwy, Cleveland GA 30528 – Shopping will begin at 9:00 AM
3) 10:00 AM – Jackie Jones Ford – 2742 US-129, Cleveland, GA 30528
4) 12:00 Noon – Loretta’s Country Kitchen – 4305 Mundy Mill Rd., Oakwood, GA 30566
5) The Weather, as of today (11.29.19), is calling for partly cloudy skies and rain later in the afternoon in Cleveland after we are long gone. It’s Georgia, so the weather is subject to change.
6) It’s a cruise and Jackie Jones is providing the truck so you can drive your Mustang, if you so desire.

You are invited to join us as we celebrate part of NEGMC’s mission and that is giving back to Toys for Tots. You have three assignments:

1) Let me (Steve Harrison: know if you are going – we will need a head count to plan our shopping assignments
2) Tell me where you are going to connect with us, i.e. the cruise from the Oakwood QT, at Walmart (shopping for the kids is the best part), at Jackie Jones, etc. – so we know where and when to expect you
3) Have fun! – This is the Best part of NEGMC’s mission!

Print this email and bring it with you?

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday December 7th. Santa hats and club shirts would be fun.

The NEGMC President’s Award & Prestige Awards Update

Earlier this year the NEGMC announced that the Club was creating two awards, the President’s Award and the Prestige Awards.  The aim of these Awards was to encourage membership participation in the Club’s various activities and to acknowledge those members that do participate.  These are the points totals as of 10.20.19.

There are two award categories:

First is the NEGMC President’s Award – This Award is for the members and their activities with the Club during the year.  Points are assigned and any member that achieves a points total of 100 points are more will receive this Award.

Next is the NEGMC Prestige Awards which are broken down into four class groupings by age of the NEGMC Members cars. Those breakdowns are: Prestige Class 64.5 – 78; Prestige Class 79 – 93; Prestige Class 94 – 04 and Prestige Class 05 – 19.  The Prestige Awards are given to each NEGMC Member that has accumulated the top points in each class.

There are still several qualifying NEGMC Meetings and Car Show remaining for this year that can help you achieve your goals.

Additional information is available on the web site’s Awards tab or by this link:  NE Georgia Mustang Club Awards Programs

Red Grille Medallion Award!

Congratulations to Kenny and Lisa for being awarded the MCA Red Grille Medallion for their 2004 Mach 1.  In addition to the Red Grille Medallion Award, they also received a Gold Award for the Houston show.

Great Going!!

For those of you thinking of striving for their own Grille Medallion this is how to achieve that goal:

When you attend a National event you will earn 2 points for your Mustang when receiving a Gold Award (1st) and 1 point for a Silver Award (2nd) at that show.

When you attend a Grand National event you will earn 3 points for your Mustang when receiving a Gold Award (1st) and 2 points for a Silver Award (2nd) at that show.

It takes 20 accumulated points to earn one of two different types of Grille Medallions:

  • Red medallions are awarded in the Occasionally Driven; Daily Driven and Modified Classes
  • Blue medallions are awarded in the Concours; Thoroughbred and Unrestored classes

Once you accumulate 20 points then you simply need to fill out the form (typically in the MCA magazine) and submit it.

It takes a dedicated individual and/or individuals to achieve this recognition which only adds to the awards prestige.

Again congratulations to Kenny and Lisa as it has been several years since a NE Georgia Mustang Club member has received a Grille Medallion.

NE Georgia Mustang Club News (02.07.19)

We are off to a very exciting year. We conducted our first board meeting, evaluating all the work ahead of us this year. We are currently in the throws of moving our Mustang Unlimited show to YearOne Muscle Car Parts in Braselton, GA and all the planning that is involved. For may years we were fortunate to have an awesome relationship with all the people who worked at Mustang Unlimited and they always did an incredible job hosting our shows. With Mustang Unlimited closing the Georgia location, it created an opportunity for us to seek a new site for our show. YearOne has been gracious to invite us to start the car season at their location. Not only are they providing the site, but partnering with us to have a very successful event. You will probably see some not Ford products at our show and a section will be set aside for those cars. It was our intention to have an only Ford show but given that fact, YearOne has been doing shows there for many years, open to all automobiles. so, it may happen that something other than a Ford product may show up and as car guys we don’t want to turn anyone away. Our awards will be focused on Ford products. As far as a Club Show, the voting will be separate from the non-Ford cars. However, there will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for the non-Ford cars. I simply want to bring this to your attention so if there are non-Ford cars there, it would not come as a surprise.

We have a ton of events planned for this year as you will see on our website calendar. This should appeal to all our members, as it will not be just car shows. Our next meeting, at Gateway Classic Cars, we will discuss the usual events and in addition, will be rolling out many new opportunities for our club and members.

The club address has been changed from Baldwin, GA to Braselton, GA to facilitate our ability to retrieve mail from the PO Box. We have updated our information on the MCA site to reflect our new address and officers, so as you search for clubs on the MCA website you will see that as well. The NEGMC website is being updated daily, which keeps it current. It is your best resource for information pertaining to the club and other activities.

Our spring show is now an MCA regional show making both shows MCA regional shows. Our March show is listed in Mustang Times (Maggie Valley soon to follow). We had a guy in NC saying he saw it listed in Mustang Times and is coming to the March show. Maggie Valley planning is going hand and hand with the YearOne planning and both prove to be great events.

I’m going to stop here, but I wanted to bring you up to date on some of the club activities. More information to come at the February meeting. Again, it is at Gateway Classics in Alpharetta. Be sure to have your club decal on your windshield. The decals will be available at Gateway if you do not have one (I will tell you why at the meeting.) Bring your chairs!

See you soon,
