Hi SCMC members!,

My name is Bill Drzal. My wife Emmy Lou and I are the IL State Event Coordinators for the SVT Cobra Mustang Club (SCMC). With the warm weather last week, hopefully, most of you got to take your Cobra's out for some cruising. Unfortunately, our Cobra is still in storage about thirty miles from were we live.

Last year we chaired several SCMC events in IL. We planned and did cruises to the Wheaton cruise Ford night, Mustang night at Augustino's in West Chicago, and cruise night in Morris. We also went to Gingerman Raceway in South Haven, MI to participate in the SCMC car show and track event.

The events planned for last year did occur as scheduled. Unfortunately, very few members chose to attend these SCMC IL events. This is your club! Last year, we left our home in the western suburbs of Chicago and attended a family reunion in Danville, we then drove to Morris to attend to participate in the cruise night and meet fellow club members. And yes, we our Cobra got cleaned up and was in the show. I guess the point I'm making is, I'm willing to drive some where to meet fellow Cobra owners. I understand that the membership is spread through out the state of IL, so I am curious what types of events you would be interested in attending? Meet at a location and cruise and have dinner? Meet and show at a car show or cruise night? Drag or track events? In the past we also done cruises on the Mississippi River Road and to Staved Rock. As a suggestion, what about another cruise to the Morris car show and dinner? Other suggestions?

The one event planned for this year is to the attend the SCMC event in South Haven, MI the weekend of September 20th-21st. This is a car show and a track event. This is the first track event I ever participated in and got hooked. Learn to drive your Cobra the way it was meant to be driven! You learn the course with instructors in your own Cobra. See the SCMC club Web site for more details.

We are looking forward to meeting all of you this year. Please feel free to call me during the evening-hours at 630-293-7866.

Drive safe and have fun!
