Fall Tour Cancellation & Member News

Posted by Editor on October 6, 2020 at 8:10 PM

We are disappointed to announce the cancellation of the 2020 fall tour. Club member Bill Harris has tested positive for Covid 19 and over 8 fellow members were exposed during the Monday morning coffee. It will be over a week before any of these others know whether they have contracted Covid as well. We have no other choice at this time than to cancel our planned activities as the tour coordinators are amoung this group. If you have made hotel reservations you will need to call and cancel them as well. Any monies taken by the club for activities will be refunded to you. Karen and Chuck will be calling all those who were scheduled to attend.

Monday morning coffee will again be suspended until further notice. The scheduled club picnic on the 17th has been moved to the 24th to give those potentially exposed time to be confirmed negative for Covid-19.

We would of course like to wish Bill Harris the best in his recovery. We would also like to thank Chuck and Don for all their hard work on planning this event. The good news is that the Sping tour is already planned!

Annual Awards Meeting Cancelled

Posted by Editor on May 14, 2020 at 2:10 PM

In a special meeting of the MAFCA Board of Directors this morning it was decided to cancel this year’s National Awards Banquet. Installation of officers will be held in MAFCA’s La Habra office instead. The reasons for this action include the unknowns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, risks of air travel, and health of our members.


Cowtown A’s in Fort Worth have agreed to host the event in 2021. By then we all hope this world-wide medical tragedy will be in our rear-view mirror.

Monday Morning Coffee

Posted by Editor on May 10, 2020 at 12:20 PM

Bill Harris has set June 1st as a target to resume Monday Morning Coffee. We will keep an eye on the situation and advise if this date changes.

President's Message

Posted by Chuck & Karen Dusenbery on April 8, 2020 at 7:00 AM

I hope this message finds each of you and your families in good health. As you know, the world is battling COVID-19, or the Coronavirus, and it is affecting every aspect of our lives. In order to protect our members, and not run afoul of our state’s regulations, the Board and I have decided to cancel or postpone all Club events for April and May, 2020. We think this is in the best interest of the health of our members, and our communities. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get out and enjoy your Model A this spring. In fact, I’ve already put 500 miles on my car this year. The key is to plan your trip as a loop, and don’t plan any stops along the way unless they’re completely necessary. If you do stop for gas, a restroom break or other necessity, wear a mask on your face (it can be a dust mask or a simple bandana — it helps to protect others if you cough or sneeze) and make sure to wash your hands with soap and water for 30 seconds, Disinfecting hand sanitizer also works to kill the virus when water is not available.

 I look forward to seeing all of your bright and shining faces when it is safe to do so. Until that time, you can follow Club updates on our Facebook page and the Sooner Scuttlebutt.


Be well,

 Michael Downes, President
