AMAC Presidential 2008 Photos

Calgary, Alberta

June 21, 2008

This years' Presidential Show and Shine had been eagerly anticipated for several reasons by Club members and fellow Mustang and Ford enthusiasts. It was to be be the 25th Annual Presidential. (has it really been that long ago since former President Larry Lucas started this event? Wow!)

 The weather was excellent once again this year as we held our Show and Shine at a new location; the very scenic tree-lined location of Stanley Park in south Calgary. You really are spoiled getting to park your car on the field, and to walk on grass all day long instead of on asphalt.

With the efforts to promote the "25th", we anticipated that if the weather co-operated then we would hopefully have a substantial increase in the number of registrations over the past years events. We were not disappointed, as we ended up with 153 vehicles registered, nearly a 50% increase over the previous largest Presidential show.

We had extra "goodies" for the participants, as well as many raffle prizes. We had hot burgers and cold drinks on-site, with sales proceeds planned for the Club charity, the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter. (Thanks also to Jim for making pancakes and sausages for the volunteers in the morning!)

To summarize, we believe this event was a complete success. Hope you enjoy some of the photos on these two pages. If you were there, you hopefully had a good time. If not, try and make it out for the Show in 2009.!

Thanks as well to active Club member Ken Werner for supplying some of the photos from this years' event.
