A very cloudy day with a few drops of rain couldn't keep several members of FCMC from attending the Hoosier Summer Slam show in Columbus In on Aug 13th. Besides the threatening weather we still had a lot of fun. Everyone came home winners. Justin brought his Mercury Marauder and took home the "The Best Post 79 Ford" award. Due to the weather the show was over early.
FCMC had a great showing at the Queen City Mustangers' Pony Trail on Friday and their Mustang and All Ford Show on Saturday June 24th & 26th in West Chester Ohio. The weather was great both days, although the temps were high we had a good breeze all day. Thnaks to Queen City for putting on a wonderful show weekend.
Our 21st Pony Trail and Car Show really got a big boost from Mother Nature as we had fantastic weather!!! On Friday Jon and Debbie Hunt got us all started with a few rounds of "The Price Is Right" before getting started on our Pony Trail to downtown Corydon and to Lucas Oil where we toured their oil and additive plant. After leaving Corydon we traveled to Jeffersonville to our Welcome Bash-Cruise-In. There Pony trail participants were treated to a meal from Big Ben's BBQ. Saturday morning started very early as members began prepping the show site. Cars began arriving at 8:00am and continued until noon. Everyone seem to be having a great time as Jammin' Janet played great music and entertained cake walk participants. Judging went smooth and we were able to get everyone on their way home by 4:00pm. I want to THANK all the members that worked so hard to make this year's Pony Trail-Car Show such a great experience and go so smoothly. THANK YOU to all that came to the show and our show sponsors for supporting the Falls City Mustang Club. .......THANKS Steve
