1968.Thereare sevenmembersfromour rstyearthatares llac veintheclub.In the early years of club the mee ngs were held in several loca ons. In August 1976 the CRRG moved to the Abernathy Grange at Park Place, Oregon City. This continues to be our mee ng place to the present day.
The CRRG has hosted six very successful Western Na onal Meets for na onal members from across the US. Our  rst was at Bowman’s Resort on Mount Hood in 1971.The Second was at The Inn of the Seventh Mountain in the Bend area in 1979. The Inn of the Seventh Mountain was such a great loca on for an an que car meet that we held two more meets there. The second was in 1987 and the third in 1995. Our next was held in Hood River in 2004. Our latest meet was held in Redmond in 2012.
Every year there are three regional meets in the country. One in the West, one in the cen- tral area and one in the East. Regional meets are a great way to meet fellow V-8ers and check outtheircars andtomakenewfriends.
A summer event that CRRG participates in every year is the All Ford Picnic held at historic Champoeg State Park south of Portland. The picnic is hosted by the Mid-Willame e Regional Group #9 is a fun event and there are lots of Fords to look over.
If you have an interest in early V-8 Fords you are welcome to a end our mee ngs and hope- fully join our club.
