100 YEAR CLUB RIDE 2016

As a reminder to all Cushman club members, we will be doing the 100 Year Club ride again this year at the state meet. For those who are not familiar with the 100 Year Club, you too can be a member IF:

  1. You have a 100 percent Cushman scooter, i.e., no Mikuni carbs, no non-Cushman engines, no custom frames, lights, etc. Only those items that came from Cushman Motor Works, or were Cushman accessories available when the scooters were in production. Only one exception: you may have updated tires and rims for safety reasons.
  2. Your age, plus your scooter’s age is equal to, or greater than, 100 years.
  3. You register and pay your $7.00 registration fee at the meet (pays for patches & trophies).

We will all line up according to your combined age, and do a short ride around town to show off our true vintage scooters. You receive a patch and get a chance to win trophies “Unrestored Best of Show”, “Restored Best of Show” and/or “Highest Combined Years”.

When you purchase your tickets place your tickets in the container of the items that you would like to win, which will be located in front of the item.

  1. I can download the dang form just fine. It looks great. It is sitting on my desktop as a PDF.

    Just won’t print. I have tried all sorts of tricks and so now I give up :-). I am old enough to know when to throw in the towel!!

    I have sent a request to the Love family for a paper form, so all is well.

    Really looking forward to the Texas Cushman meet!! Thanks.

So if you did I want you to know that in 2019 The Texas Club will be hosting the CCOA national meet in Paris and we are in need of volunteers to help put on the Best National Meet Ever. So if you will and can help let Don Henry or me know what you can contribute. See you in Snyder Richard Kesselus
