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.

Annual Meeting Report

The Christmas celebration and annual meeting was well-attended and we are thankful for favorable weather this year. The year was reviewed and it was agreed to continue the monthly evening socials and the morning brunches. The treasury is in good shape, there were only a couple of expenses for the year and after a fair amount of discussion Darryl Bendickson agreed to put together a 2015 north Mad River Valley tour with site input from Mrs. McConnell.

Re-elected to office were Danny Dunham, President; Brian Mettling, VP; Tim Voss, Treasurer. We wish the officers and tour leaders well in 2015 and once again add our sincere statement of appreciation to the McConnells for their hospitality and many kindnesses to the club and its members.

Respectfully submitted,
Denny Myers, Secretary

Annual Meeting

Through the generosity and hospitality of our members, Bob and Diane McConnell, we will once again gather for our Annual Meeting, Election of Officers and Christmas Celebration at the McConnell Depot in Urbana on December 13, 2014. Plan to arrive from 11:30 a.m. until noon and we will share our celebration luncheon shortly after noon. The club will provide the main meat dish and each family should bring a dish to share in the potluck luncheon; drinks provided by the McConnells. After the meal we will proceed with a review of 2014 activities, consider any motions for club action and elect officers for 2015. Please consider sharing your experience and leadership as an officer of Mad River Ts. Volunteers and nominations will be received for all offices.

Please do not miss this important annual event. The club needs your participation in its direction and activities for the coming year. McConnell’s Depot is located on the south side of W. Main Street (SR 29) just beyond the railroad overpass. Plenty of parking for Ts and other less aged vehicles.
