Our club has two annual meets each year which draw members from all over the United States and Canada. We choose an existing car show event to attend as a group then add our own activities, awards, dash plaques and door prizes for club members. Attending an Eastern Meet or Western Meet is a great way to engage with members, show off your ride, make connections for parts and learn more about these great cars. These meets are always a great time and bringing your Monte Carlo is not required.
In addition to the two annual club meets posted in our calendar there are several unofficial mini meets and gatherings of members around the country which are discussed in the Local Cruises and Events section of our message forum.
The 2020 Western Meet will be returning to Montana for the Rumble in the Bay. Bigfork is located next to Flathead Lake and offers some great scenery in the area. We expect 25-30 members from over 10 states and provinces. The event we are attending has a car show, cruises, poker run, live entertainment, and more. The event will also have special recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Monte Carlo so come celebrate with the FGMCC. We will update the web site and message board periodically as information comes available. If you have any questions regarding this meet, please contact Aaron at email@example.com or 250-494-4024.

We will have activities from Friday morning (September 4th) through Sunday night (September 6th). You can decide on how much of the weekend to participate in. Most members will arrive by Thursday evening and leave on Monday morning but some members will come for a shorter visit. Glacier National Park is nearby but we will not be driving out there as part of the meet.
Club members must inform Aaron (email@example.com or 250-494-4024) if you are planning on attending the meet. This will be important for planning the activities for the weekend. You must be a dues paying FGMCC member to participate in the meet activities.
