Thanksgiving is one of the holidays when family and friends get together to enjoy food, football and some friendly banter. Some will travel near, others far. Some will enjoy dinner with family, others will spend it with friends. Others, like our military, police, fire, hospital personnel and first responders, to mention a few, will have to work. Thank you all for your service. However you spend your holiday, remember, the Oklahoma Mustang Club wishes you and your’s the very happiest of holidays and a Happy Thanksgiving.
November is that time of year when the leaves are changing colors, temperatures are getting cooler and of course Thanksgiving. It is also the month the Oklahoma Mustang Club holds it’s annual elections. Over the past few years, this club has grown by leaps and bounds. We’d like to contribute this growth to the OMC Board of Directors, but that’s not entirely true. It’s our members! They have enjoyed all the different activities the BOD, and of course our Appointees, have put together for them. Pony Drives, Cruise In’s, Car Show, Drag Racing, Gun Range, Bowling, Go Karting, Road Course’s to name just a few of the events our club has participated in this year. With most of the Appointees returning to their positions this year, we expect it to be just as active, and maybe a bit more active, in 2017. We would like to say thanks to our 2017 Board of Directors for volunteering to help guide us into another year of fun in the sun with our Mustangs!

It’s that time of year again! Our November meeting is always a special one. Before the monthly meeting starts we enjoy our annual Thanksgiving dinner. Club members bring drinks and side dishes while the club provides the meats. This year we’ll enjoy ham and turkey. Following the Thanksgiving dinner, we hold our regular monthly club meeting. This month, however, we will be voting for our 2017 officers. Members will also be asked to vote on the Officer, Appointee and Member of the Year! Every vote counts!
So, if you’ve not made it to one of our meetings before, this will be a great one to attend! Sunday, November 20th, 1 pm at the Mustang Town Center.

The Oklahoma Mustang Club took their cars to Texas World Speedway in College Station Texas and from the looks of things, had a great time. About a dozen member’s, family and friends went for the two day event. NASA TEXAS hosted the weekend of fun and our members “competed” in the High Performance Driving Event (HPDE). Actually, they weren’t really racing, they were just having fun going as fast as could. Broken up into two groups, the HPDE guys, and gals, drove on this 2.9 mile road course which is an old NASCAR track. Back in the day, track speeds got to over 210 mph in NASCAR and 230 mph in open wheel. VERY fast track. Speeds for the HPDE also could reach in excess of 140 mph. Talking to the members that attended, they said the course was fast and fun! From what they said, they’ll be heading back there in March of 2017. Guess they did have fun!
