[DMCForum] Florida Delorean Show Update



With about four months until "D" Day I thought it was time for an 
update...

While I've not been posting publicly in recent weeks about further 
plans for the show, there HAS been significant progress made towards 
the upcoming show in Ft Lauderdale.  I now have a firm date locked in 
(2-4 November 2007), a first-class venue for the Saturday show that 
I'm about 90% sure we're going to be able to get, pending expected 
City approval, an outdoor Friday evening "drive-in" style screening 
of BTTF with celebrity guests in attendance done in conjunction with 
The Fort Fauderdale International Film Festival, a pre-screening 
cocktails, dinner, and mingle with the celebrities on Friday evening, 
a unique classic car museum setting with a JZD connection for the 
awards dinner on Saturday evening, a driving tour/road ralley on 
Sunday morning, and, if there is enough interest, possibly an 
optional tech day and/or car inspection session after the tour/ralley 
on Sunday afternoon at a local service facility with lifts and lots 
of work space that has offered to host us.

Regarding accomodations for out of town guests, I've narrowed it down 
to two possible official hotels for us on Ft Lauderdale Beach (NOT 
the one originally mentioned, these are much nicer, and still VERY 
affordable...) and expect to make the final pick between them very 
soon.

As I've mentioned before, I am sure that we have enough people in the 
Florida Delorean community who are willing and able to display at the 
show, and to volunteer to help run it, that we can have an event to 
be proud of.  Anyone who has already contacted me about helping out 
is already on my list, anyone else who has not yet contacted me and 
would like to help, please do drop me a line now at 
whocruiser@xxxxxxx so I can add you to the list.  Don't be shy, we'd 
love to hear from you :-)

If there's one thing I've learned above all else from my friend and 
mentor Ken Koncelik about how to run a car show, it's that we need to 
welcome and to be there for everyone.  Ken has offered me lots of 
wise and experienced advice at every step of the way, and in the 
spirit of DCS, there is plenty of room at this show for both 
individual and club participation - this is an "open" show where all 
are welcome, and we have already had interest expressed by both the 
Delorean Club of Florida and the Florida chapter of the Delorean 
Owners' Association, and we welcome any and all other clubs and 
organizations to also step up and participate.  And you don't just 
have to be a Florida club either - I'd love to see a group from SEDOC 
drive down from Georgia-Alabama-Carolinas, and for anyone from 
further afield, you are of course welcome to come down, with or 
without your cars, to join us here in Ft Lauderdale for some great 
Delorean fun in the Florida sun, and perhaps some extra beachside 
time to relax before or after the actual show (both of our "finalist" 
hotels are located by the famous Ft Lauderdale Beach Strip, just 
steps away from the ocean.)  I hope to get the show venue 100% 
confirmed soon, and then will start to crank up the publicity effort.

See y'all here in November -
