AMAC Presidential 2011 Photos

Calgary, Alberta

June 25, 2011

We had planned for months to hold our 28th Annual Club Show and Shine in the beautiful park-like setting of Stanley Park once again this year. You can  really get spoiled parking your car on the field, and to walk on grass all day long instead of on asphalt. We had hoped to continue our relationship with the City of Calgary and this venue.

However, that was not to be, as the seemingly-unending rainfall during June had completely saturated the grass. We would not be able to utilize Stanley Park due to the fear of causing damage to the grass, as our Club would be liable. This issue came to a head on Tuesday and our Show was to be on the Saturday.!

We had an amazing response from the Grey Eagle Casino, as they stepped up to allow AMAC to hold our Show on one of their parking lots, with only a couple days notice. Everything worked out, as we were able to inform many Mustangers to the new location; we ended up with a beautiful sunny day, and the Show was great.

We had a great selection of Ford vehicles with a total of 116 of them turning out for the event. Once again, we had a huge representation of the newer Mustangs. There was also good support from other Ford Clubs in the city, including a large contingent again from the Thunderbird Club.

Our charity again this year is the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter, and they were once again rewarded with the generosity of the Mustang community. Many thanks as well to all the volunteers that make this event the success it was.

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 2012.!
