Fords Unlimited Latest News & Updates


I know you have been following the Car Show Committee monthly updates hoping to eventually get some good news about a Show in 2021. Well, after an extremely careful review of the current St Louis County “Event Planning Guidelines” dated 28 March 2021, the Board of Directors agreed to move the Show date to later in the calendar year. This action was taken with the hope that the continually increasing vaccine numbers; reaching herd immunity; and the expectation of infection numbers to steadily decrease would bring is the County Health Department in association with St Louis Parks Commission to either totally eliminate or at least drastically decrease to requirements for an event in a County Park. The new date is: 34th Annual Fords Unlimited Car Show - Sunday, September 26, 2021. The FUCC Show BBQ – Saturday, September 25, 2021 – McDonnell Picnic Shelter

We now have approximately 150 days till show day. A lot has to get accomplished between you reading this update and actual parking of your prize winner in McDonnell Park on September 26th! So, the next most important date to put on your calendar is the next Car Show Meeting: Show Planning & Organization Meeting – Saturday, May 8th @ 2:00 PM Rain date, if needed, will be Sunday, May 9th at 2:00 PM.

We have exciting things to talk about during this meeting: Actually having a show Bommarito bringing a Mustang Mach “E” for display Ameren’s participation with their Electric Vehicle Team Finally getting out to collect sponsors for the Show What’s the Pre-Show Publicity going to look like for the Show

As Plans continue to be developed for this year ‘s event we are still searching for Members to commit to volunteering before, during, and after the Car Show; as well as for the Saturday Night BBQ. During the April 11th Membership meeting virtually everyone in attendance, approximately 30 members and BOD’s, signed up to volunteer to help in one or more of the 19 tasks listed below. Thank you all very much! Those who were not able to attend the Club Membership Meeting, you haven’t lost your opportunity to help make FUCC’s next show a success. Each of these tasks require 3-4 Members to make them individually a success. Pick out one or more and grab a friend to help:
