Re: [DML] DOA possible benefit?

Ken has been pleading for help for years 
This hobby has gotten out of hand and I hope you all enjoy it 
Without groups like the DMA, AZD and DCO Gettysburg would not have happened 
NONE of my kids could come so I was short handed to start.
Cliff, Josh, Kevin and Marc (and their better halves) have really picked up the slack 
My friend Lynne, The Brandy's, the Cards and the McMullens, my brother and others that pitched in behind the table helped a lot.
This is no longer a hobby and with all that goes on
I think having rooms like the Brandys, BTTF and the Museum had helped.
The vendors were given rooms and only John Hervey used his and I think this was a mistake as it would have made for more traffic and more than John was needed to keep the flow going.
If all had used them I think the E2 lobby would have been hopping.
Instead they hit the bar ( which I even got in a few minutes and I mean a few)

My thanks to all that helped load
we were all  loaded by I think 1 am so my Sunday morning was easier.

I have to take time here to thank Cliff and Marc who stuck through the whole teardown
Many many participated


Did anyone see what happened to the large screen TV in the Robert E Lee room 
I do not have it. It was brand new just for the show.

Anyway I will address the show later thank you for all the support.

That said>
I have been to every one of Ken's shows and we all agree they are awesome however there is only one Ken and I am concerned what happens when he burns out. I witnissed Ken working (and several others) on Saturday night/Sunday morning ,when most were back in their rooms or in the bars, loading the trucks with the cases from the museum. Some day he, his family and friends may tire?

A national club might ensure that there would be continuity in the future.

I will not reiterte the past sins of the DOA. The past is just that and we all should judge them on their future actions. I agree with Marc (did I say that aloud) in that they have an opportunity to mend fences with the Vegas show.

I have a better idea. How about the "DeLorean Motor Club"? It was an
attempt some years ago to create a new national club to bring everyone
together. However, from what I've heard it was entangled in lawsuits
brought on by DOA board members who were able to successfully crush
it. Much in the same way attempts were made to silence the DML, but
ultimately failed there.

I still have the application somewhere in my memorabilia collection
somewhere. They conceived a great logo with a two-lane blacktop
converging at a vanishing point with a DMC-12 at the top. It even had
this halo of light shining all around from the car. Looked almost like
the Eye of Providence, except it was a DeLorean car instead of an eye.

Besides that, DOC is already taken in the UK.
