We would like to invite all our FTE brothers & sisters to come on down to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We’d also like to encourage attendees to stop by our location during the week and introduce yourselves, visit with us, watch the near constant parade of specialty vehicles and allow us to demonstrate why our state is known as “The Hospitality State”.
The Mississippi chapter is scheduled to be located on the on the corner of Beach Blvd (US-90) & Benachi Ave. This location is right next to the Biloxi Welcome Center which has the iconic Biloxi Lighthouse in front of it and approximately 120 yards west of the westbound exit of I-110 onto Hwy-90. We'll have a large lot of packed sand covered in grass along with a bunch of trees. Bring your chairs, pop-ups & awnings. The view is magnificent.
This is the Chapter’s second foray into being on the scene of CTC & even my first attendance at this event I’ve so long wanted to see. Wished I could have made it last year, but fate intervened.
This participation would not be possible with out the help of local FTE members gatormccluskey (Steve) and Shorebird (Bryan). It’s unfortunate that I am this late in the year promoting this, but we have high hopes that this will become a steadily growing yearly event and a chance to attract more Ford truck owners of all types to the fellowship that FTE provides.
Please speak up and let us know if you’ll be attending so that we can anticipate meeting new & old friends we’ve only known up till now on the other side of a computer screen. Also if you or someone you know has to leave their Ford truck at home and is driving a hot rod, muscle car, other non-Ford truck or any other type of specialty vehicle for that matter, please feel free to come park with us & visit. Your presence is the important thing.
Please check back here often, as we hope to have more information and more things to share as the dates approach. In the mean time, have a look at CTC as covered by noted car guy, Dennis Gage:
Steve Bennett pointed me over here.... glad to hear FTE will have a presence at CTC We've been going for years (less one year when the hurricane ruined the party. coming in on Thursday (maybe Wednesday if work permits) and will be without truck... but enjoying the towns, the weather and the beautiful rides.
This is favorite gathering of the year. Mississippi gulf coast is one of the prettiest places in the world... The beach is ok in Ala and Fla, but Miss has the beautiful old homes those teriffic oak trees and the most genteel people in the world.. When I hit the lottery... I'm movin !!
Look forward to meeting some more FTE folks and Steve Bennett... we almost met the first year at Knoxville !!! c u there.
I do plan on being there this year, don't know if I'll have my truck ready & legal by then but will still be there regardless. I'm not sure what day to say I'll be there as my schedule at work flip-flops a lot, but i'm going to try and at least make it for a day or two.
I plan to be at the FTE site on Friday 11 Oct. I always plan my Oct Dr apointment for the same Friday as the swap meet at CTC. Found some good deals at previous swap meets. Always looking for parts for the 77 F150. Chip
