The 19th KCFCA Regional is now history. As usual with most KCFCA Regionals we had to endure some rain. Everyone enjoyed the pizza lunch supplied by the chapter on Friday. It rained a little on Friday but stopped in time for the cruise to Kauffman chicken. It was a nice day on Saturday with no rain until after the awards banquet. Lunch was provided for all the attendees. They had a choice of a pulled pork sandwiches or hot dogs with sauerkraut and lots of side dishes and desserts. The food was also great at the banquet with a family style meal including ham and turkey with all the trimmings.
There was entertainment this year at the banquet. Bruce Wolfe and his twin brother Brian sang a modified version of a John Denver song, Country Roads Take Me Home, with memories from driving Bruce’s springtime yellow ‘67 Falcon back and forth to Ft Knox, KY in 1971. The Jonestown Male Chorus also sang 4 oldies at the awards banquet. The raffle items were just fabulous. The popular item with the ladies was a McCormick gift basket with over 40 items. Another special item that sold a lot of tickets was a bird house mounted to a pitch fork. Of course there were many items to choose from for the guys, tools, a drag racing alarm clock, 3 different gift certificates, buckets of goodies from Advance Auto, Fisher Auto, Jonestown Market St Auto and many more.
Frank & Ginny Servas won Best of Show Stock with their Vintage Burgundy 1965 Squire Wagon. Bruce & Joan Kichline won Best of Show Modified with their two toned 1964 Ranchero. Kevin & Lauren Gable (& Kelsey) won Ladies Choice with their light blue 1963 convertible. Longest Distance, 280 miles, was won by Bill Poole with his blue 1965 wagon. The Oldest Falcon award was won by Keith Kennedy with his orange modified 1961 2 door sedan. The Rough Driver Award went to Glenn & Sandy Hoff with their Vintage Burgundy 1965 Sedan Delivery. Every one that attended received a trophy plaque.
Renee and Jeff Wied kept the attendees busy with some great games. We played “Falcon Family Feud” in the parking lot with all the gang. What a good time with lots of laughs and prizes. A generous thanks goes out to the attendees that gave up 2 hours of their sleep to stand guard duty while everyone else slept. These guys are your invisible helpers. A REAL BIG THANKS goes out to the dedicated members, present and past, which have always made our KCFCA Regionals possible.
