2024 Eastern Meet Award Winners


Rob Peters

Recommended Posts

Below are the FGMCC and Carlisle Event Award Winners.  Just a note, Due to the large number of cars registered in the Modified Class our club decided to split it up into Modified and Super Modified.  Carlisle Events did not offer a Super Modified Class so the Super Modified Class was a club only consideration.  This will only be done during meets where we have 40 to 45 cars registered.  

I am sorry it has taken me so long to post these award winners but things have been real crazy since I returned home from Carlisle.  As soon as I can I will post my pictures.

Thank you Rob for all your hard work on this meet. I am honored to receive the award. Congratulations to all the winners of club awards and Carlisle awards. The club awards mean more to me than Carlisle awards, as a matter of fact I didn't even put the Carlisle card on the windshield. Thank you to everyone involved with all aspects of this meet.

I have been trying to get my pictures to post up but keep getting errors.  I have tried to resize them but they still won't post.  Will try to work on that as I get time.

Thanks again to Rob and everyone else who made it all happen. And congrats to those who won awards.  I was honored to have had fellow FGMCC members cast votes for me.

PS - FGMCC members were responsible for taking home 2 of the 10 “Carlisle Elite” awards out of the total number of cars present (+/- 1,100).  Jared was one and some booger-colored Monte took the other 😂

Do you remember what I asked, when you mentioned that your car received the award? ...:605774673_stirpot:  😁

Glen and Jared,

Congrats on your 10 Elite award.  They now award those awards on the show field.  They used to bring the 10 cars and their owners up to the Grand Stand area and present them there for all to see.  I know of at least 2 other members who have received this award in the past.  One of those members was Steve Levanti and the other one was me.  I will try to find the picture of me receiving mine and attach it here so you can see how they used to present them.

I remember this picture of you, Rob.  Aw hell… who am I kidding?  I remember the car and the two blondes.  I just didn’t remember it was related to receiving the same honor. 

Congrats to the four of us!!!  May I suggest we petition that the other club members have to address us as “Lord” or “Your Majesty” or something along those lines from now on?  It’s only right.

I do not.  But I’m sure it was something sarcastic and condescending. Not to mention I’ve learned to ignore/dismiss 99% of the things you say 🤣😂

It went something along the lines of...

"Congratulations,....now are you going to send that trophy to the guy who you bought the car from?"    🤣:k:devil:

I got it, Rob!! 

From this point forward, the four of us shall be referred to as “Your Eliteness”. 

Yes sir, I’m just full of great ideas 😎💪🏼

C’mon on, now!  We’ve all seen the commercials. I blame “insulin resistance” and not passing on ab work when in the gym. Abs and legs are my arch enemies.

Now go ahead and officially declare this thread “hijacked” 😂

There's always 'Ozympic' for weight loss,  I guess it's big in Hollywood,  where all the other elite people are..:yay:

 

(As usual,  topic way off track, but all in good fun :2beers:)

All I thought of the pic was..........I can only imagine one of the "blondes" asking Amy to move aside for the picture.......I don't think I carry enough plastic for bond 🤣

You can propose that if you like as long as they don't refer to me as SIR
