President's Message

PRESIDENT”S MESSAGE: September 2022

Greetings Dodge Brothers and Sisters, 

Summer is almost over and we're getting ready for the fall Hershey meet. There will be big changes to the fall meet at Hershey this year. First let's go over some of the key events that our club does every year.  

The Dodge Brothers Club National meet and tour is our main event of the year. We try to hold these meets in different parts of the country and whenever possible stagger them between East and Western parts of the US. 

The typical Dodge Brothers meet starts with everyone arriving on a Sunday and touring Monday through Thursday.  Participants may Drive DB and GB cars and trucks built between 1914 and 1938.  

We do need ideas and chairpersons to volunteer and come up with tours for the next few years. If you think your area would be a good destination for a national meet, don't be afraid to step up and make a suggestion. It's just a starting point and we can find other members to help you with the planning.

The June 2023 meet will be in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. I hope to see all of you there. 

The second big National event for our Club is held during the AACA Eastern fall meet at Hershey, PA in October. During the Hershey meet we have our annual members meeting and dinner It is a chance for many of our members to get together and talk about our cars.

This year there are some big changes to the schedule at the Hershey meet.

1.  The car show will now be held on Friday. In years past the swap meet happened between Tuesday and Friday and the car show was on Saturday. This year everything is moved up one day. Vendors will move into their spaces on Monday and the car show, which ends the week of festivities, will be on Friday.

 2.  The Dodge Brothers Club annual dinner will be on Thursday night instead of Friday. At the Union Deposit United Methodist Church. 34 W Main St. Hershey, PA 17033. where it always has been. 

$20 cash at the door, Kids 12 and under Free.

3.  The Dodge Brothers Club tent spaces will also be in another location this year, although as of this writing it is still not clear where that will be.

We also encourage our Regions to host mini meets and weekend tours in their local areas throughout the year. These can be a simple fun run for an afternoon or just a group meeting somewhere for lunch.

We are only limited by our imagination, so let’s get out there and do some good.

 

Mark
