The NE Georgia Mustang Club’s 47th Annual Fall Mustang Car Show Update

WE ARE MOVING THE SHOW!!!

It has been different this year with COVID-19, shelter in place and all the other disruptions. Car Shows are still cancelling, which has caused everyone to reassess their plans. Like me, many of you have been out driving your cars and some clubs, like the NE Georgia Mustang Club, have put together cruises just so we could see each other and drive our cars.

Many of you are wanting to know if the Maggie Valley Car Show is still on and the answer is NO and YES! The NE Georgia Mustang Club’s Fall Car Show will not take place at the usual location at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds. That is the NO part of the answer.

The YES part of the answer is we are moving the show to the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds at 1311 Music Hall Rd, in Hiawassee, GA 30546.

The Additional good news is that we are adding Friday, October 2, as a second day full of activities. The car show will be held on Saturday, October 3 as usual. We are excited!!!!

NE Georgia Mustang Club has been in contact with John Clor, Enthusiast Communications Manager / FORD PERFORMANCE ; Steve Prewitt, President of the Mustang Club of America  and our vendors. After several discussions and calls, we have decided to move our event to the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds in Hiawassee, GA. Everyone is excited. Ford Performance has committed to coming and John Clor is planning to speak just before the awards. John even mentioned that Dick Nesbitt the designer of the Mustang II is interested in the show.

This year the Mustang II Club will be holding their Mustang II Reunion V at the show and they are pumped to be coming to Hiawassee, GA. FYI, The first people to register on Motosho this year were Mustang II owners. Steve Prewitt, president of the Mustang Club of America  is bringing his Mustang II. Many vendors have called and said they are coming and some have offered some cool goody bag stuff. We are well on the way to a very successful show.

This is how the show will play out. We have a drop dead date of August 14th as this is the latest that we can wait before we have to commit to having shirts and awards made. Georgia as you know is calling the shots for social gatherings and that will be the determining factor for our decision. Right now, Georgia is open to car shows as long as everyone social distances and wears a mask.

This year the show will be popular vote show. At the show, clubs and friends can park together or in close proximity to each other. That way you will most likely be next to someone you know.

We are asking everyone to register on Motosho so that we can have dash cards prepared when you arrive which will help avoid large gatherings of people around the registration desk. We want to have a fun show and at the same time keep everyone safe. We are forging ahead as usual continuing our planning for the show. The host hotel is the Lake Chatuge Lodge .

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.
