Next years meet

Recommended Posts

Ohhh man...even FURTHER away from me than the last meet. I'll just have to wait until there's another one on the west coast...unless I get rich. O.K....I have an idea. Everybody send me ten dollars.

John...just request a nickle donation every time you give helpful advice. You'll have your airfare in no time! :)

I was thinking instead of flying, your donations would help me get my '31 ready, get me the gas money and get me there (and back). Do you really think my advice is worth a nickel? Wow! I just may have to give even more.

Nope...it's worth much more. I meant you give so much even a modest nickle would quickly earn big bucks!

Hope your '31 DOES make the trip. But, if not, your welcome to ride shotgun in a '32!

THANKS! Nice '32 on the meet badge, too!

John, it looks like your wait for a West Coast meet just got a little longer. Joe Cozza said that the fellow that was to host the 2013 Meet in Riverside, CA, apparently has health problems and has decided not to go thru with it. I just got a call yesterday from a fellow DB Club member on his way home from the Moline DB Meet. I am not sure it's official yet, but he tells me the torch has been passed to him for hosting the 2013 DB meet near Dallas, Texas.

That's correct. It will be in Texas.

I don't think it will be in June though.

I'm guessing April/ May.

Joe,

Apr./May would be a bad month for a meet as there's people plan there vacations for just the meets Like the School teachers members this would be hard for them to get off.And the younger people with school age kids same thing.

Vern- you and your car will burn up! It's Africa hot in Texas in June, July or August. For that matter, it is Africa hot in Riverside, CA in July, where the meet was originally located. (For the same reason, thankfully, that's not going to be the venue).

And with all due respect, the "kids" argument holds no water. In the last five National Dodge meets I have attended, you could count the kids in attendance on one hand. By my estimate, perhaps incorrect, the far majority of attendees are retired.

Maybe one of these years I can be a part of putting together another Oregon tour near Crater Lake and Mount Shasta. There is a lot to see around here and a lot of wineries!

Did someone say Wineries?!?! I'd be all over that!! ;) Someday...would love to go see Crater Lake!

I know it's a ways away, but I'm actually looking forward to the 2014 right here in my homestate of Michigan! Maybe if I get lucky, I'll even have the Victory ready to go for that one! :D

And...here are some of my toys. Besides 45 years of tinkering with DBs, I'm a life-long flying disc (Frisbee) player, collector and historian. I co-wrote the definitive history of the Frisbee with its original inventor: Flat Flip Flies Straight!

Amazingly, each of those early flying discs shown could buy a nicely restored DB.

Several wineries in the Fort Worth/Dallas area, specifically in Grapevine, TX among others.

When will the details on 2013 be available??? Send a PM if possible.

Enjoy!

:eek: Holy Crap on a Cracker!! :eek:

That's a serious toy collection!! That should be able to get ya to the meet and back!! ;)

Shannon, John is being modest...You should see his hubcap collection. It can be seen from Space. Nasa had to develop a special sunglass for the Space Shuttle crew when they orbit over Southern Oregon. It's amazing what one 106 year old man can do.
