With the show getting closer and me being busier than normal I have not done much of fun facts.
Finally got a chance to look at some of the Data and those of you that have kept track of them over the years will realize the number of states represented at this point is way ahead of most of the other shows.
So far we have
And we have Ontario and Russia
At this point this is great 25 states represented so far. Hope I didn't miss any but these are what I saw doing a quick glance.
The state with the most registrations is IL followed by PA and TX
Come on OHIO, INDIANA, KENTUCKY its in you back yard. :-)
I was at the DCO meeting in Ohio in January and I believe everyone there was planning to come. So it looks like registration is going to be very interesting in the weeks ahead.
Room are moving along and there are still rooms left. Those of you that event registered please remember to register for your room.
The room rate is $109 per night.
It is for all the nights of the show and the bookend nights.
If the Hotel tells you there are not ask for Bobby Ogles or e-mail me.
The rate will be honored for the time you are there for the show. Sometimes not all the desk help are aware of all of the show information so please do not worry if you are there for the show you will get the show rate.
We have 67 vin plates so far.
A special bonus this year the T shirts will NOT be white
They will be black with the logo so this is a big change.
I keep getting asked if we will be inviting more guests
First of all there is only so much time at the show so I am limited but I think 18 again tie with Florida and Gettysburg is quite enough.
Second someone has to pay for it and we do have a budget so we are within what the show can do.
The raffle car is doing fine and will be in the St Patricks day parade this year.
There are 32 group photos so far so reserve your photo now.
There are 61 cars registered so far so we are expecting about 125-150 but would like to see 200 so if you can please bring your car. Only if you pay the registration can you park under the tent. If you bring your car and do not register there is plenty of parking right next to the tent.
OK we are good
for those signed up thanks for registering
for those that have not signed up what are you waiting for????
Thanks this is your show
to enjoy it you have to be there.

As you know DCS strives to bring you the best in entertainment, history, CARS (especially DeLoreans), a great spot to vacation and of course lots of fun.
Please spread this to the other DeLorean forums, FB, twitter, linkden and whatever.
If you were looking for that one thing to put you over the edge and register for the show if this does not do it I don't think anything will.
From Bob Gale this evening

Subject: Chris confirmed that he plans to attend
He expects to attend solo and Chris still isn't sure what his schedule is. But he said that as long as it's a weekend, he'll make sure he attends.
So I am expecting Christopher Lloyd to attend the show on Saturday at this point. He of course will be with the other members of the BTTF crew and Bob Gale.
Chris was the last guest that I had been trying to get that had been eluding me so this being the last show I am doing I think things worked out pretty well.
Now for Surprise number 2
I have another BTTF guest that we have been working out details for and that is Harry Waters. Harry played Marvin Berry in the BTTF movie and will be singing Earth Angle for all of you on stage. We will do this Saturday night as well.
I now have filled up my schedule
Also a note Bob Brandys will be announcing information on his show out west that he has done in the past. Mainly as a preshow to DCS and more recently as his own show.
The future of DCS will be discussed and Jason will give you an update as to the direction he would like to take the New DCS show.
So now the cast is complete and we look forward to seeing you at DCS 2014
Just a note I am getting closer on rooms so if this motivates you to come then please get your rooms before they are gone. Again I have a 500 person max and we are approaching that number. Would hate to see any of you that have been following this to be left out in the cold and today it was cold 1 degree in the morning. Lets start to warm things up.
While we are all excited about guest to the show especially the high profile guests. DCS does not work a contract with them and they are under no obligation. I want guest to be here because they want to and in the past that has worked out very well as you all know. As a result I cannot guarantee any of the guests beyond their verbal commitment and work schedule. So if a guest cancels it is out of our control and we hope you understand. This has happened only twice before in all our years so our record is good and we hope you enjoy what we have put forward for you.
This is my last effort at bringing you the largest and I hope you feel also the best DeLorean Car Show Convention/Show/Museum/Vacation/History Lesson/ Entertainment Package and Pool Party that I can. I hope to see you all at my last show.
PS this time we are looking at 15,000SQ ft of additional tents (that is one big tent) in addition to hotel space.
Chicago was 19,000 indoors. If you want to park under cover you must register your car. We would like to see 200 cars and set the all time record for cars. In this location we are near enough cars to do it.
There are 149 raffle tickets left and we usually have 300 by May 1 (Raffle car has plates and insurance and ready for St Paticks day Parade) and there are only 140 event registrations left.
Keep in mind in the past half the people register after May 1st so that is why I am sure we will be a sell out.
Again this is your show. Only you can determine its success or failure and so far DCS has been the success you have all made it.
We also have confirmed the Taj Ma Garaj as a stop so we will get to see some very unusual vehicles.
Check out the daily events. As of this posting Christopher Lloyd, Harry Waters, Donald Fullilove and Claudia Wells, Bob Gale, Andrew Probert and Kevin Pike have not been specifically added. I have the general BTTF cast notes.
Manson Cheung from Mattel will also be making a return by popular demand.
Thank you all for your support
and register soon and register often LOL
I am sure you will enjoy this show.
