First Generation Monte Carlo Club Award Winners (by Jake Gould)

Longest Distance went to Pat & Jean with 559 miles. They beat Deb and I by 23 miles.

Best Stock went to Art & Rena

Best Sounding went to Jake(me) & Deb (& Cecilia :grin: )

Best Interior and Best Non-restored went to Keith & Rosa

Hard Luck, Best Paint, Best Engine, George Lines Best Modified, and Member's Choice were earned by Vaughn & Kathie & Liam (he's 12 btw).

The Hard Luck was awarded because their battery somehow developed a hole and leaked all of the electrolyte onto the battery tray and frame of the car as well as had no CCA to start the car.

As the stand-in director I chose Roy & Sue's '72 402 as Director's Choice. I really liked the color combination and the documentation of the restoration was extensive. Good Job!!

First Generation Monte Carlo Club 6th Annual Western Meet

By Dave Mau

FRIDAY - It rained in the morning, but let up for the afternoon and was cloudy the rest of the day. I'm not sure how many others did it, but after we checked in for the show, Jake and I participated in the Poker Run. After that, most of us got together at the club hotel outside of Vaughn's ground-level room and visited. Later on, some of us attended the live band entertainment and raffle drawing. 

SATURDAY - It was a mix of high clouds and sun, and we all met about 7:00am at the club hotel parking lot and then drove caravan-style to the show and parked together. It worked out great and we were able to line all the cars up together and put up our canopy and FGMCC banner. I enjoyed visiting with club members and looking at the Montes so much that I didn't even spend much time looking at the other cars in the show! I don't have an official number, but I heard there were approximately 180 cars there on the show-designated streets. After the show wrapped up in the afternoon, we met back at the club hotel and took the pictures of the cars in front of the lake at the lakeside parking lot. I think we spent a couple hours there taking pictures and visiting. Later on we all went to a Smoke House restaurant for dinner that we had discovered while on the Poker Run. What a great time!  

SUNDAY - Starting around noon, we all met outside the club hotel underneath the big white canopy that was set up there on the grass. We had our awards ceremony and then handed out the club dash plaques and door prizes prior to taking the photos of club members in front of the FGMCC banner. Dan and his son, Travis, and Rodney and his girlfriend, Lisa, and his parents who were also along for the fun had to leave not long after that, while the rest of us stayed on for an afternoon of visiting, relaxing and eating. Jake's wife, Debbie, barbecued the burgers & brats, and everything was great. I think we wrapped it up around 7:00pm or so, as everyone was pretty tired from the events and traveling, and were planning to head back to their respective homes on Monday morning. 

Overall, it was another fantastic FGMCC Western Meet and I was very glad that I was able to attend!!
