Well, just wondering if anyone has any updated news on the new MCA website ? I was told to wait until late October or until mid-November. Here it is the 2nd of December and no apparent changes. Anyone got any updates on when we can expect a new website ?

The website has been delayed for a variety of reasons that are best not discussed in a public forum, but it is still going forward, just delayed.

Be patient, grasshopper...be patient.

Gladly waiting.....and make that GRASSHOPPERS. Over 60 people have viewed this topic, so I must not be the only one with high hopes of a new MCA website ! Thanks for responding and thanks for all that you , Charles, Lauire and all of the others do for us "noephytes" as we are the "restoration and hope-to-show-soon" folks !

My comment was that I and others are waiting. Nothing more, nothing less. I am still waiting on the Museum too. Don't really care who is doing the site, just as long as it is better than the current one.

If you don't want people to ask the question "when will the site be update/changed" then don't tell them a date. Kind of like telling a kid that Santa is coming. MCA members are anxious (just like a kid at Christmas) for the new improved site.

I don't even know you. I'm not sure where you came up with the comment I don't like you.

Forget the money. I'm hoping she invites all of us to Tucson in July for an outdoor party! LOL

That can be arranged, you bringing the beer? I'll provide the salsa and chips.

...reasons that are best not discussed in a public forum...
Hammer. Nail. Hit it on the head!

That is a point that has many people frustrated. Where else is there to discuss MCA affairs? Most members can not travel to the meetings. VMF is the closest thing I have found to a MCA meeting place. Why can't things be public? What is so secret? Budget issues? MCA is a non-profit, so the budget should be open to everyone. Why all the political secrets? Board members not getting along? Laurie quits, then gets voted back in, but can't tell anyone why???? Regular members see issues like this and don't want to renew their membership. MCA is an open organization for the betterment of all things Mustang, not a secret society of Knights Templar that hid all the world's wealth under the streets of Boston.

I don't want this to come across as any kind of attack on anyone associated with MCA. As far as I remember I have never actually met Randy, Stan, Laurie, Charles, or any of the other MCA insiders on this board, but after several years on this board I have developed great respect for all of you (yes, even Midlife.) Officers, board members, judges - - everyone spends a lot of time in the positions with no personal gain or compensation, which shows how much you care about MCA, but acting like a super-secret-decoder-ring-only club will only hurt MCA.

You're just mad that your ring hasn't shown up yet. :p

BTW, weren't the world's riches buried under New York?

Trust me, MCA isn't hiding anything from you - if anything, Randy is being polite about the current status. My firm, Red 5, is doing the work on the new site and is 100% responsible for the delay for reasons that are unique in my 12 years of experience.

Stay tuned, the thing will be worth the wait!
