Our first meeting for 2021 was a huge success. We had close to 40 people in attendance and 15 cars on the cruise. We discussed many things happening with the club and how well the membership is going. As of today we have 104 members, way ahead of last years membership on this date. We also went over the calendar that was sent out prior to the meeting and the events we plan on attending this year. We have 16 members that answered my email stating they were attending the MCA event at Road Atlanta in April.
Three new members attended the meeting, Nathan Jenkins, Chris Ring and Tim Ochipa. Welcome to the club!

The cruise was awesome, as always, thanks to Gary Dyck for planning our route. We managed to stay together throughout the cruise, which made the cruise even more fun. Ronn and Will were able to take some incredible pictures. Their Mustang was running very strong as Ronn passed everyone while Will was taking pictures of all the cars on Hwy 365. As we drove through Helen people were taking pictures of our cars. It’s always fun to see a string of Mustangs coming down the road. What a a great day to cruise as we were not the only club out for the day. We saw a Corvette club and passed a 4Runner club out cruising, as well.
