Re: [DML] Calling all Eastern DeLorean Owners and DOA Members!!!

Kevin and others on the DML,

Last April I sent out over a hundred mailings to my members in PA as 
well as to members in surrounding states, NY, NJ, DE, MD etc. 
(including those DOA members who happen to also be members of the 
DMA)now, much to YOUR DELIGHT I'm sure, I was the only car to show 
up for the day's events, SO, to get the information out there 
for 'ALL Eastern DeLorean Owners' and DOA Members I thought I would 
post a 'save the date' message so Eastern DeLorean Owners (I 
originally thought this would include all owners of other various 
clubs, but my meaning of 'all' must differ from others'), regardless 
of what group they belonged to could put it on their calendars 
now... 9 months in advance.
I do not feel there is anything to apologize for, I simply posted a 
message for a show this weekend and thought I would get people 
thinking of events to come.  I do not believe anything wrong or 
offensive was said, and thanks to Jake Kamphoefner (Sorry for not 
mentioning your particular DeLorean group...) and 'posters' on 
DMCTALK (one of those people happens to be a DMA member, and was 
quite enthusiastic and didn't seem to find my post offensive) for 
not seeing anything offensive by my post.
The Wednesday before last May's Carlisle, I called Rob Grady 
directly to get some help with getting my Brake Master Cylinder 
finished before the show, and he asked what show I was going to and 
he said he was familiar with the Carlisle shows; he also mentioned 
that he 'would try to get a hold of some DMA members to see if they 
would get a group to go' AND when he said that, I was totally 
excited that he would let the DMA know about the event... because 
again, I didn't really care whose group people were a part of, I was 
just hoping to get more than one car there.  And I thanked Rob for 
that gesture... he didn't seem to care that I was a member of the 
So, when ever I've told the story of my 'Carlisle incident' I always 
make reference to all the states that I sent mailings to, to give 
people an idea of how many people I contacted to get them to the 
show, so when I posted my Carlisle thing, I naturally wrote the 
states I contacted last spring... sorry to owners in Virginia and 
W.Virginia if I left you out, it was not intentional.

Finally, since I didn't realize I'd be fighting a battle over this 
issue right now, and despite the fact that even for most weddings 
people only get invitations 1 to 2 months ahead of time...

I, Mark Shearer: as Vice President of the DeLorean Owners 
Association, and on behalf of the President, Ken Baker, the Board of 
Directors and the members of the DeLorean Owners Association, 
cordially invite the members of the DeLorean Mid-Atlantic Club, 9 
months in advance, to join Chapter 2 of the DeLorean Owners 
Association (and other groups/owners as well that do not fall under 
these two specifically named groups) to the Carlisle Import-
Kit/Replicar Nationals on Saturday, May 16th, 2009.

Thank you 'all' for your time (sorry for not mentioning all the DML 
members by name, please refer to the word 'all' to not feel 


Mark Shearer
