So be part of the solution instead of raining on the parade. Take some MCA brochures with you and pass them out to other Mustang owners. Get involved with your local MCA chapter. Get your chapter motivated to have a presence at area shows to promote your chapter and MCA. If you don't have a nearby chapter, start one!

The magnitude of these events is amazing. How they are put on so efficiently is quite impressive. They deal with tens of thousands of attendees. It is not feasible for a show of this magnitude to be determined by popular opinion. There are just too many logistics to coordinate and figure out. If popular opinion was involved it should have started about 5 years ago and there would still be disagreement and the show would never happen.
We have a BOD, they put together a committee (which is open to ANY MEMBER) and complete their task.
To those that have put on past events and the upcoming 50th--A HUGE THANK YOU!!! And I will see you in Charlotte.
Tom, I am part of one of 2 MCA affiliate clubs in AZ. Raining? I care about the MCA, if I didn't then I wouldn't be on here expressing a view that is not popular with some on the Board. I have been the President of my club and I was the Co Chair of the last MCA National Show held in Az. My only real credential is that I love the Ford Mustang and what it has brought to me and my family. So many friends and so many good times. I feel that some of the decisions that the board has made, without consulting the membership that is, has fractured our community and I am going to speak up.

Read through this thread..
The Mustang 50th Anniversary is the biggest most historic event to date besides the birth of the car itself. I am very passionate about this because I feel, like many others that "WE" should not be split on this day. "WE" should be all together and "We" all Members of the MCA should have a voice. I feel that the BOD's, who is the voice but you cannot hear when you dont listen, or worse yet dont ask.
Yes I care deeply about the MCA but frankly I dont get that same feeling in return. I'm not going to quit or go quietly into the night but I will vote my heart and my passion.
The Mustang is more than a car to me and my family, not trophies, unless you call all of the friendships awards because thats whats important...
