President's Message for May 2022

Posted by Chuck & Karen Dusenbery on May 11, 2022 at 9:45 PM

Dear Sooner Model A Club,

I want everyone to know that I accepted the position of Interim Club President to ensure the continuation of the Sooner Model A Club. The Club has over 55 years of history, and I do not believe any of us are ready to let it go. The Interim Board and I hope to keep the Sooner Model A Club moving forward because we believe that the Club is an ideal place to find friends and fellow travelers who are also interested in Model A’s. Traveling with the Club is a wonderful opportunity to not only see our wonderful state and surrounding areas of interest, but traveling with our friends and like-minded people in our Model A’s provides a feeling of camaraderie that is not usually available in our ordinary lives.

 

There are many talented mechanics who are members of the club and willing to help whenever possible. As some of you may know, I am not a mechanic and I need all the help I can get to keep my Model A running. Most of us are not very mechanical, but we help each other whenever we can. I have always found fellow Sooner Model A Club members very helpful at home and on trips when needed. Our trips usually involve eating good food with our good friends. When we are traveling anywhere in our Model A’s, there are almost always people who admire our Model A’s and have so many questions about them. The Sooner Model A Club has been a valuable part of many of our lives. I was very pleased to see so many various members step up to volunteer to see that the Sooner Model A Club keeps going for another fifty-five years.

 

Thank You,

Don Mitchell

 

April President's Letter

Greatings Sooner Model A’ers...

 

It has been awhile since the club last met. Club activities have been on hold for the last 45 days. There was no March meeting (Sorry if you went to our meeting place, only to find it empty)

As I write this we have completed the 2022 Spring Tour. Don Mitchell and Chuck Dusenbery did a great job organizing the tour. On the drive we had no major mechanical issues with any of the cars (to my knowledge). So 90 year old A’s can be dependable!

It was impressive to see over 20 A’s lined up each morning as we prepared to head out to the various stops.

The Salt Mine tour was fascinating. Amazing to see what can be done 600+ feet underground. The Space Museum was a hit for me. I really liked getting to see the SR-71 on display in the museum lobby.

The Yoder lunch stop on Saturday was a hit. The free piece of pie for dessert was an added treat.

Sheryl Hoyle emceed the Saturday evening entertainment and judging by all the laughter and banter, everyone had a good time.

So where are we today? In the interim the board has asked me to assume the office of president. This leaves two board vacancies; vice president and one director. If you have a desire to serve we will find a place for you.

A couple of weeks ago we received our congratulatory letter and certificate from MAFCA acknowledging the club’s 55th anniversary as a MAFCA chartered club. This is quite an accomplishment. We’ll get that put in the display case.

Please make every effort to attend the April meeting. We will reintroduce the current board and give you an opportunity to provide any feedback. Also we will bring everyone up to date with the activity calendar for the next month or so. We will need volunteers to help with our activities.

I hope to implement some adjustments to the meeting format to allow more of a focus on why we gather together; Model A Fords.

Enjoying life in the slow lane,

Joel

 

Presidents Letter For February

Posted by Editor on February 12, 2022 at 9:25 AM

Greetings to all

Welcome to our second meeting of the year. I want to remind everyone of the goal I announced at the January meeting for us all to try and project a more welcoming and friendlier atmosphere to any new or newer member as well as any visitor that might be present. Any or all visitors will be recognized but make an effort to welcome anyone you are not familiar with.

This should always be our goal to become a friendlier club. Engage in friendly conversation with any and all members. I want to encourage everyone to try and make the meeting February 13th , weather permitting. You will be updated on the upcoming inspection day and the latest developments concerning the spring tour to Hutchinson, Kansas.

I wish everyone to stay healthy, warm and safe. I look forward to seeing all of you at the meeting.

Bill Harris
2022 Club President

Inspection Day Rescheduled

Inspection Day Rescheduled

With the current surge of Covid cases in Oklahoma and Oklahoma City we have decided to reschedule the inspection day to February 26th. same time and place. I have also suspended Monday morning coffee at my garage for 2 weeks until we see how things are progressing.

 

We had already scheduled a backup day for this event as weather this time of year is unpredictable. I hope everyone understands that your safety and health is our primary concern in making this change to our schedule.

 

We will be paying close attention to conditions here in regard to large gatherings and we will adjust our schedule as needed. In the meantime, you can get to work on getting your car ready for the inspection in February. 

 We look forward to seeing you on the road,

 

Bill Harris

Greetings to all,

This year we are celebrating our 55th year as a club.

Let me congratulate us for achieving this milestone and at

the same time, Sue and I would like to wish you all a very

Happy and Prosperous New Year.

I am excited about this year and I want to encourage

everyone to plan on attending the January meeting to find out

what we have planned for the year. Even though the activities

have been posted in the Scuttlebutt, it will be exciting to hear

how it will all come together. I also have some proposed

changes to the club that I will share with you at this meeting.

We have members who are still getting sick from the

virus so if you feel comfortable wearing a mask to the meeting, please feel free to do so, especially those that may not be

vaccinated.

Since we all have a common interest, the Model “A”,

the club meetings are an excellent way to meet and make

new friends. Please plan on attending the meeting and I look

forward to seeing you.

Bill B. Harris

Don't miss the special edition Scuttlebutt posted today.

Mark Howard Air Museum

Posted by Editor on December 10, 2021 at 3:00 PM

If you are not too busy shopping for the Christmas Holiday make the time to join us Saturday morning for a special treat. We first toured Mark Howard's Air Museum several years ago and we were all astonished to find such a quality collection right in our backyard. He has invited us back this Saturday morning. We will be meeting at the Braums on 66 or Main St. Yukon at 8:30 am and then from there we will leave at 9:30 to make our way to the Clarence Page Airpark at 2300 North Cimarron Road in Yukon. It is just south of I-40 on Cimarron Road. For those that want to meet us there turn west into the first entrance south of I-40 and wait for us there. Mark will be escorting us back to his hangers.

 

You do not want to miss this event.
