You can visit the Northern California Region at their website.

We will post their events here as we become aware of them.

As a Dodge Brothers Owner and Member of the Northern California Dodge Brothers & Sisters Region of the National Dodge Brothers Club, I am pleased to inform the Membership that in Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the founding of the Dodge Brothers Automobile Company of Detroit, Michigan the Ironstone Concourse Committee has chosen Dodge Brothers and Dodge, as the 'Featured Marque' for the September 27, 2014 Ironstone Concourse d'Elegance to be held at the Ironstone Winery in Murphys, California. The 2014 Concourse Committee has asked our Region and Club to help locate EARLY (Pre-WWII / 1914 to 1942) Dodge Brothers, as well as later Dodge (Post WW-II / 1950’s to 1971) Cars & Trucks for display at this Event. NOTE: It is not necessary that your entry be a "100 Point Car", as there is a "Display Only / Drivers Class" for Daily-Drivers. Good-looking Original / Un-Restored beauties are encouraged to attend...
Specific details are still being worked out with the Show Committee, but they are anxious to get a 'straw vote' of  interested Dodge Brothers and Dodge Owners who would be willing to show their cars or trucks at this World-Class Show. If you are willing to display your car or truck at this Show, please respond with your Name and Address. When available, I will mail you the 2014 Entry Application. Meanwhile, if you are interested in information or viewing pictures from past Ironstone Shows – go to www.ironstone foundation.org
Thank you for your continued support of our Northern California Dodge Brothers & Sisters activities and I look forward to hearing of your planned participation at this important Dodge Brothers Event. 
Best Regards,

 Hi Rick,
 This attached info, tells about a major Concourse d'Elegance in Murphys Ca., a charming  old gold rush town. This event is featuring  the 100 years of Dodge Brothers cars. It is rare that a domestic marque gets to dance on the main stage. Many of the west coast gang are planning to participate in this one with cars. This program ranks close to Pebble  Beach. 
 This is worth a word on the web site to alert the entire club.                                      Thanks, Gerry
