Just 2 days before Halloween, Show Me Mustang Club members got together to celebrate! About 20 Mustangs, new and old, met at Fast Lane Classic Cars, where they admired each others’ Mustangs and took a group photo. Then, a 66 Coupe led caravan of ponies to the Yacht Club of Saint Louis on the Mississippi River. The Yacht Club of Saint Louis was an excellent host! The owners had parking spots blocked off for our group and reserved the upstairs for our FUNction. YCSL even had a special themed menu featuring a “Show-Me Salad”, “Boss Burger”, “Fast Back Fried Cod”, and a “Pony Melt”. Members enjoyed the food while listening to Jeff Sandbrink’s special playlist. Members decorated foam pumpkins, took photos in front of the Halloween themed back drop, and enjoyed looking out at the scenery. SMMC asked the staff at Yacht Club to choose the winners of the Costume Contest, they voted:
Best Car Themed Costume:
Derrick & Staci Biltzing (Vintage Shelby Race Car Drivers)
Best Couple’s Costume:
Mitch and Karen Mitchell (Crash Test Dummies)
Bonnie Sandbrink - (Crazy Cat Lady)
Party planners, Jeff Sandbrink and Jessica Mckay, decided that 2 other categories needed to be added so Brennan was named “SMMC’s Best Dancer” for his cool moves on the dance floor, and John Kohler was awarded the “Scariest Costume” for coming as the devil and offering to buy members’ souls.
Mitch Mitchell discussed club business and announced available board positions. The club also discussed the Toys for Tots Drive and Stangsgiving. Everyone who attended had a great meal, a great time, and a great drive!
