December 8 we had our annual Club Christmas Party. Our theme this year was Hawaiian Luau there was many members in the native or tourist attire. We started the evening off with happy hour and conversation. Meal time was a delight with plenty of chicken an roast beef. After dinner we entered into the entertainment such as Dance contest, Limbo, Balloon Coconut Stomping and the Not So Newlywed Game. The Gift exchange had a new twist this year as members that played took a gift and passed it to the left or right after a dice throw. It seemed that everyone had a great time. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...……………..Steve
Ho ho ho what a great evening for a parade. On November 24th FCMC with ten Mustangs participated in the Light-up Jeffersonville Christmas Parade in Jeffersonville IN. It was near dark and all cars had to have Christmas lights and decorated to be in it. Lots of children and adults lined the streets just waiting for some candy to be tossed in their direction. After the parade we went to El Sombrero for dinner.
Paul and Jenny hosted their annual Chili Cook-off and supper on November 10th at their “Toy Shed” in Jeffersonville IN. Unfortunately Jenny was unable to make it, she was in the hospital. We had several pots of good chili some very hot (spicy) some just right and lots of yummy desserts. Rose Ann was the cook-off winner this year with her delicious chili. Steve and Brenda were the cornhole champs again this year.
We never let a little rain (well a lot) of rain from Ole George stop us from having fun. Steve and Nancy hosted a pony trail thru the hills of Floyd county, and I might say some very curvy roads at that. When we finally got back to their house we had a delicious cookout dinner and lots of rain, needless to say NO cornhole was played

Feb 10. We went bowling at the Blackiston Lanes in Clarksville IN. Lots of members came to bowl and some came to cheer the bowlers on. Ed won the 3 game high series with an impressive 619 total, he scored 461 in two games, everyone on lane 13 would had to have bowled over 300 in the third game to catch Ed. Bill finished 2nd overall. Ed also took home the traveling Turkey trophy. After bowling we went to Hooters for dinner.
January 20th FCMC went bowling at Blackiston Bowl in Clarksville, nice little break from the boredom of winter. Kamos was the only "Turkey" for the day, Steve had a high game of 215 and Ed won for the highest series with a 527, of course we were playing "no tap". We went to La Lupita for a authentic Mexican dinner after bowling where we helped Rose Ann celebrate her birthday "early".
