Our organization name is Diamond Tread Chapter, Model A Ford Club of America.

Thank you for visiting our Internet site.

Greetings and welcome to our site, as Diamond Tread's 50th year comes to a close (officially on March 14th 2019)! 
 
Happy February and the new Board of Directors is hoping for another great year!  As I am sure you are aware of, the effort your Board Of Directors put into the planning of events is what makes this chapter run so smooth.  Hats off to each of the Board Members for their great work... be it the copious notes of the Secretary, penny pinching of the Treasure, strict timelines mandated by Membership, request for meeting snack contributors from Hospitality, gathering of pictures and chapter updates to MAFCA by Historian/Publicity, thoughtful planning of tours by the Tour Director, organization efforts by Fund/Picnic Coordinator, globally visible efforts of Webmaster, relating of anecdotes and facts by the Editor and personal assistance/guidance provided by the new Director of Henry's Helpers.  These individuals help make our club run efficiently - Thank you and now my hat goes back on.

Please take a look at the February newsletter for details on: the "month long" February tours, enjoy photos of: the Marconi Automotive Museum, St. John Bosco's High School Parade and work done by Barry Beckley and Mark Williams to Mark's 1931 Flat Bed AA, award details regarding Model A Youth Restoration Award and "Details from the bench".

If you are a club member that would like their car posted in the "Our Cars" section, please send a jpg file to WebMaster@diamondtread.com.  Accompany that picture with year and model style.  If you have any comments or corrections, please also forward those to WebMaster@diamondtread.com

The Diamond Tread Newsletter is sent electronically in a .pdf format, to everyone that wants a copy.  If you are interested, please send your name and eMail address where the pdf can be sent to both the Editor and Webmaster entries below.  This will allow us to cross check that all requests have been satisfied.  Just to bring everything full circle, that eMail broadcast will have a link to the Diamond Tread Web Site.

Every club needs a little help and our advertisers help make it all happen.  Please patronize all of our advertisers.

Look forward to seeing you at the next meeting... happy driving.
