The Midwest Blue Oval Club was formed in 2014 by a group of Ford enthusiasts with the sole purpose of putting on All-Ford events around America’s heartland, and using the net proceeds of each to benefit charities within the townships or cities in which the events take place. We are not professional promoters; just die-hard Ford enthusiasts who want to gather like-minded folks and their FoMoCo machinery for some fun & camaraderie, and to do something good within the communities who are kind enough to let us come play.
So who are we exactly? The Midwest Blue Oval Club Board is made up of:
- the coordinators of the former Midwest Ford Fest
- a few of the coordinators from the River City Cruisers
- plus a few other key individuals who have been involved in a variety of automotive performance events.
Amongst us we have thousands of hours of experience in the planning and execution of automotive events, and hundreds of shows & racing events under our belts. We do this because it’s our passion, not our job. We are registered with the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization.
Our club is comprised of a dedicated board of directors and some voting members. The board of directors are as follows:
Founder – Karl Mawhirter
President – Al Rutherford
1st Vice-President – Randy League
2nd Vice-President – Monti Strait
Treasurer – Greg Howe
Secretary – Geri Howe
Registration Director – Fran Rutherford
Registration Team – Yvonne Gray
Registration Team – Julie Yergovich
MCA Regional Director for NW Arkansas – Jeff Yergovich
