Re: [DML] Re: DOA, and car club politics.

I don't think it is your responsibility to relay what he said.  I was asking out of curiosity...  As for *ME* being the "relay guy", I'd rather not be blamed for any possible misinterpretations.  Mike made a good point (a few posts back).  Maybe Ken B does not want to use the DML to discuss the situation?  That is not exactly trying to play nice with everyone....  But I will continue to take the "wait and see" approach while hoping for the best and expecting nothing.  Even if Ken B has a good sales pitch on the phone, I would still wait to see if the actions back them up.

FWIW, I did just look at the DOA website.  Big picture on the front page, "DeLorean Expo 2009" with the comment "Association members cast your vote today on the DeLorean Cafe to pick which city the DeLorean Expo 2009 will be held".  Um, don't we already have a national show planned for 2009??  It is in Las Vegas ( if the DOA does anything other than support the established show, I dont see how the goal is to unite the community.  Actions speak louder than words.

Having been involved with running large shows like this, I have my doubts that the DOA (or anyone) could pull off a national show for 2009 when as of now there is no location picked out.  Why not encourage DOA members to attend DCS09 in Las Vegas?!

The DMA club used to have our "Eastern Regional Run".  Sometimes the club planned the events top to bottom, other times (Well, most of the time) we just "tagged along" on someone elses event.  IIRC, Run #4 was to the DOA event in Williamsburg VA (1994).  Run #7 was hosted by the Virgina group, Run #9 by the New England group.  And, I am sure Ken will tell you the story on how he started giving away pins at DCS, it was because of the DMA club!  We had Run #8 at Ken's frist DeLorean car show in Cinncinati, where Aldo asked Ken to make the pins for us (Aldo would have a pin for every Eastern Regional Run).  Just an example of clubs cooperating together.

Here is my suggestion to you Marc. Pick up the phone call Ken and 
YOU can relay to the group the details of your conversation. You 
labeling him as "unwilling" is negative and totally unfair. How 
about you take the lead since you are now slamming me for not 
relaying all the details of my talk with him.
