Oh where to start. It was an interesting day. I waited to morning to get a fire extinguisher (5 point deduction w/o one). I loaded the car up and tick,tick,tick! car won't start. battery died. my mistake for cranking tunes while cleaning and detailing. spent all that time finding jumpers, didn't get extinguisher. I get to the show people at first where like focus why? but the mustang club was awesome about it and I talk to them about focus fanatics. and later on people warmed up to it and gave compliments. I went into show room for info on 09's. and they ask me if that was my focus and had nice things to say about it and joked about taking it on track. Many people loved my leather seats. I was not the only focus there. A beautiful silver Saleen 05-06 was there, and I mention F.F. I have a lot of pictures to go through 150. Trophy time came early than posted and I wasn't expecting anything, but I got runner up in my class. Now I'm pumped up for the spring show and see how many local TX foci we can line up. When time comes we need a meeting spot and get there early to clam a whole area and set up a fanatics tent. Out of a 100 points I got 86, now if only I gotten that extinguisher! it could of been 91 of 100. the rest of the points taken off where due to dirt around a hard to reach spot on the engine and some dirt I missed around the windshield. The overall opinion of judges, "Better than average for it's age."
club pointers where advertise! advertise! advertise! (the club,) make meeting dates and times clear!, have something fun n' entertaining to do and offer gifts this includes food (pretty much sums up the bbq weekend.) and it doesn't hurt to have a 50/50 jar ( everyone puts a certain amount $$$ and draw a name.) winner takes all. when the club grows look for sponsors to help out. Have Fun!!!

I'm stuck working, no show for Me.
But yeah, get the word out on the spring show ASAP, and We should get a good line of Foci out for that one. For Me anyway, the sooner I know the sooner I can request time off.

Ok body shop not done w/ paint. most my parts haven't arrived yet.
Got my car back for the weekend and will return it on Tuesday, but will enter the show anyway. I'm working on my display and a binder of pics, logos, and info on focus fanatics and the Houston meetings. I will be there early due to the fact my parents are Mustang club of Houston members and will volunteer for show. Maybe I can get some pointers for are club.
