Annual Tecumseh Tour

Tecumseh Painting c. 1868
The Mad River Ts Summer Tour will be held Sunday, August 2, and start from Studebaker's Family Restaurant in New Carlisle.  Trailer parking will be available nearby the restaurant.  Plan to meet for brunch at Studebaker's around 9:00 a.m.  Meals and snacks will be from Studebaker's excellent breakfast menu. 

The National Road (Tolls)

The tour will be a leisurely route through some beautiful countryside within historic Clark County.  Along the way we will use and cross the National Road, historic Route 40, which played a huge role in America's westward expansion.  This road will take us to Tecumseh High School, and the annual large cruise-in that financially supports the Tecumseh athletics program.  Registration to join the cruise-in is an option for tour participants.  The tour will conclude at Studebaker's in early afternoon.

Mark your calendar now for this fun run tour.  Details and maps will follow in the August newsletter, and via e-mail messages.

First Quarter Newsletter 2015

The Mad River Ts February Newsletter is now published 

Friday, January 30, 2015


Our club has changed its focus over the years from its initial role as a support mechanism for Winter Tour Florida to become a hobbyists' club for admirers of the Model T Ford in west-central Ohio. Few club members have an interest or ability to do serious touring, but retain an interest in associating with others having similar interests. As such we have largely evolved into a social club with occasional tours during the warm seasons. Thus our news is relative scant and seldom.

We changed the frequency of the newsletter from monthly to bimonthly a couple of years ago and will now try a quarterly format in order to test whether such a cycle will cover the main items and events that need to be reported. The quarterly newsletter will be supplemented as needed with e-mail messaging which reaches virtually everyone in the club both instantly and flexibly. Your comments and suggestions as we try this format are most welcome.
