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. This is Diamond Tread's 50th year as a club (officially on March
October is here and the weather feels like it is July. While it is nice to get our cars out on the
road, a lot of the plant world is pretty confused. Speaking of confused, October comes from the
Latin “octō”, meaning “eight”, because in the Roman calendar October was the
eight month of the year. With the adding of January and February at the
beginning of the calendar after the Julian calendar reform, October became the
tenth month of the year, as we know it today.
A great thing about October (for me anyway) is Halloween... be safe out
Please take a look at the October newsletter for details on: The Rubel Castle
Tours, discussion on the 2020 BOD, Ticket To The Twenty's details, Red Hat's
road trip, Model A Horn Service suggestions and registration for the Christmas
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 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.
