I know exactly what you are saying, Jimmy, seems like the older group of members have a death grip on the local clubs, very opposed to new ideas and change. With our new officers, we are planning different activities than before, such as movie nights, etc. instead of the same old thing. A club cannot survive on going to eat and show & shines. There must be exposure and recruitment. We have added Track Day to our schedule. Twice a year we book a local road course track, and spend the day, cook out and have a great time. There are many younger people who own Mustangs, and I'd love to see more of them in our club, if only we can make the club more fun. And the competition from other Mustang clubs, that are not MCA affiliated, is stiff. These clubs plan road trips (which the older set doesn't want to do), have get togethers, cookouts, etc. They just hang out together as friends, where as some of our members only see each other at the monthly meeting.
