The 2021 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 a great turnout of members from all over the Western US and Canada. 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 Monte Carlo as its feature car 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 or suggestions regarding this meet, please contact me.

We will have activities from Friday morning (September 3rd) through Sunday night (September 5th). You can decide on how much of the weekend to participate in. Most members will arrive by Wednesday evening and leave on Monday morning but some members will come for a shorter visit. Club members must inform me 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.

I’m still working on communicating with the hotel to set up a new contract for 2021. Once I have the details I will email everyone regarding cancelling 2020 and setting up new reservations.

For 2021 we will have a block of 29 rooms set aside for us at the Timbers Motel. They cannot take reservations more than a year out so you will need to wait until September to reserve a room for 2021. Details to come!

For those of you with reservations at the Timbers Motel for 2020 you need to call (406) 837-6200 to cancel the reservation.

We will have members attending from great distances this year representing 10 states and 5 provinces.

There are already several rooms booked and I anticipate that we will fill up all 29 rooms at the Timbers Motel. If you run into trouble getting a hotel room please let me know.

I made a quick map of where members are coming from for the 2021 Western Meet. Thus far there are over 30 members expected from 11 states and 5 provinces. Pretty amazing representation of the club we will have at this meet. If you have not made your reservations, I suggest you make them soon to ensure you get a room at the main hotel.

I have updated the map in the post above to add a couple more locations. I was hoping with the Montana location would attract additional members from SD, ND, NE and WY as this is the closest the meet has been to those states. It would be great to add those states to our growing list.

Aaron, as of right now we would have 23 members who are on the club roster in those 5 states.  Out of those 23 members ONLY 5 of these members are current in their dues and 18 are behind in their dues anywhere from 1 month to 4 years.  We just don't have that many active members in those states.

Yeah, maybe we can boost that before this meet. :)

I plan on having my 72 Monte done this fall/winter, so I will be coming to my first ever FGMCC meet this next year.

I look forward to meeting you. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Aaron
