maffi Seeks donations


September 28 - As all of you know by now, 2020 has been a very unusual year and it has forced a reevaluation of all of our normal activities. Most of the Model A get togethers for the year have been cancelled and it has left a void in our lives as we have gotten to know such great people in the hobby.

Model A Day at the Gilmore was also cancelled to protect the health of all Model A Hobbyists. Our theme for this years event was First Responders which is very appropriate with what is happening right now and this theme will carry over to next years event. To read more, click here.

June 28 - The webmaster has received lots of "thank you" messages about the A of the Day Puzzle. One member asked, "How can I use yesterday's A of the Day for a puzzle?"

This is very doable, in fact you can choose ANY photo on your computer to use as a puzzle. So I explained to him that first he has to download yesterday's photo.

Since many of you might be thinking the same thing, I wrote up the instructions for finding the A OF THE DAY photo you want (up to 30 days of back photos are on the website) -OR- choose a photo you already have on your computer.

To view the instructions, click here. Happy puzzling!
