kcode and his wife Becky worked their hearts out helping to put the Mustang 40th together, not just at the site but for many months beforehand. When we saw them, you could see the tireness in their eyes, they were working so hard at the registration tent they barely got a chance to see much of the show.

On behalf of the M&Mers that attended and all Mustang fans that attended the show, I'd sure like to tell them how much we appreciated their hard work. This was one of the largest and best run events I've ever attended.

Steve, you couldn't have said it any better. Of the M&M folks I did get to talk to, Mike & Becky were the ones I saw the most. They are wonderful people. I can't imagine all that they went thru to put on such an excellent show. I didn't hear any complaints from spectators or participants. I'm sure there were a few as there always are, but I'd say it went off without a hitch for those of us that weren't behind the scenes.

GREAT JOB! Mike and Becky!

I agree wholeheartedly! They were exhausted, but kept on going and going to make the event great for everyone.
The work to make it sooo successful is beyond belief!
Poor Mike didn't even get to enter his own K-pony!
I think Becky was annoyed with my harrassing her about the classification of our car, but things worked out....
Great job M&B! I hope you have a nice vacation planned before going back to "real" life!

Love ya!

Yeah Mike and Beck are good people. They are definately a major reason the show was so good. Most of the participants will never know that, but we do. Thanks a ton to them for that extra effort. I know they didn't get to enjoy the show as much as alot of us did, so Mike and Beck we salute you. Thanks a ton.

Thanks for all of the praise and glory, we are both happy that everyone had a good time. Considering that the whole 40th staff from the Executive Director to the person working the lots parking cars was made up 100% volunteers. Just imagine what kind of show we could do if we were paid. Our goal was to put on the best Mustang Celebration ever, I think we accomplished our goal.

It seems like everytime we have a M&M get together Beck and I are always working, the next gathering we ain't gonna work, we gonna spectate.

We were both kinda lost this week, didn't know what to do with free time, I might even start working on her 66 convert again.

Thanks again, glad y'all enjoyed it

Mike,,

Enjoyed the show.. But,, I agree with you.. The next M&M gathering you and Becky need to come and relax.. Come to think about it,, maybe I'll do the same thing..

The week after is always a tough one.. It's hard to believe it's actually over..

Again,, Great Job..

By the way,, I found my camera.. It was safe and sound inside my Registration Box of goodies.. I did take a few pictures on the trip to Nashville,, my favorite was Nebraska in my rear view mirror..

Yes, if I recall correctly that's why you retired kcode, so you could enjoy the shows.

You guys just need to avoid your brother-in-law so you don't get get snookered into these things.

By the way, I also wanted to thank you for the MCA 'staff' t-shirt and the other perks you gave us, we really appreciated it! It was fun riding on the golfcart wearing that staff shirt and having people ask me questions. "Is it ok if I park here?" "Oh sure, by all means!"

HI Guys!
You did a fabulous job! Thanks for making it a great time for everyone.
I promise if you make it to Park City in August, I won't make you work. You can relax and spectate all you want!
Unfortunately, Mike and I overbooked ourselves and didn't get to spend much time with the M&M crowd either. It was great to see and meet so many of you!

I would like to thank Mike and Becky for forwarding an e-mail asking about show t-shirt to the right person. Because of them I was able to get a shirt for Dave. He really wanted to be there but the Navy had other ideas.It arrived today and is a great looking shirt.The two ladies(Lisa and Connie) who helped me were great.
Thanks again.

Terri and Dave
