In our Club you don't have to have a GTO. Some don't. Many members with classic GTO's didn't attend that day. Of the classic GTO's there only 1 was recognized, a perfect condition Palisades Green 69' Judge. Some club members took their classics to NORWALK. If they would have shown, there is no doubt their cars would have won awards. 2 of the cars not present that day took home awards at the GTOAA Nationals.Morty,
Yes it is a GTO club. That is what was surprising to me (the lack of 1st gen GTO's).
What type of show was this 100 cars and 25 of them was new Gen. GTO's??? how many old gen. GTO????
I was at a Rod and custom last week.
3 total GTO"s over the whole weekend showed 1 old and 2 new and 1 of each won awards...
Well, then the GTOAA has a lot of work to do to mend past scars... The ball is not in our court, they are the ones that want our money, we are the ones that have been hurt.at what point do we try to fix the probblem instead of never letting the past go..
this sounds like some of the old goats towards new goats
at some point you got to forgive and forget...
all my dealing have been good nothing compared to HRJ problems..
this make me think its one area and not the whole group
last time i'll ask this is it time to forgive and forget and try to fix the issue or continue to complain about something that happen 3 years ago ???
just my thoughts
Hogwash. Some members have made asses of themselves at the Nats and elsewhere. Immaturity x 10^1000. I witnessed it in '06, and it was apparently worse in '08.Well, then the GTOAA has a lot of work to do to mend past scars... The ball is not in our court, they are the ones that want our money, we are the ones that have been hurt.
Dont forget to tell us how it goes today.Okay So lets see if we get a nice showing for the On The Border Meet This Sunday Morning Aug 17th. I will have over 40 awards in all I think there may be a few New Gens winning something here...lol I also Have awards for Best,Classic Gto, F-body,Best Corvette along with other catagories.
Don't miss it.......
I hope to see alot more then 2 old school gto 's to come out and support as thats how many there were last time. http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=241438
thanks however if we can just let some other clubs learn from our mistake then we will all be better off. The only reason GCGTO qualified to still be a GTOAA chapter is that the HGH had 100% GTOAA membership going into the merger. If we hadn't merged we would have had 100% membership and all of us would have been better off...GCGTO would have lost their charter for lack of participation and Houston area would have a very stong club base because we would have left the HGH as it was...no officers, dues, BS...just great people doing great things...we used to do a ton for charity...we had toy drives for Toys for Tots, Blue Santa in Lake Jackson, Dyno Days, impromtu GTG's, organized participation in shows, cruises....for a long time there was an HGH event every weekend in Houston.I'm so sorry you guys had to go through that...
I am sorry for what you had to go through. I cannot fix the past and can try to work hard to affect the future. It doesnt forgive the indviduals who did what they did, I would hope the National office attempted to intervene.Now how does this relate to your current initiative of bringing member clubs? Allow clubs who want to join to do so as is without having to merge.
