Yea, it was good to see some faces and glad there were so many that showed up!
Since i was out of the main room, I did not hear how this was to be organized? Are the postings for now supposed to go through DML? or is the "organization" supposed to happen through Southern Col. BMW/DUcati? I was not able to stay long enough to find out about Presidents/website/etc....
They are asking for volunteers for officers, basically write a little bio of yourself and why you think you'd be a good selection for whatever office you choose and they will make the decision from there. I believe the next meeting will be the final weekend of March. They are going to submit the aps to DNA, so we will be officially recognized. They asked for our input over the next few weeks as to how we would like the club to run. It kind of sounds like they are getting the ball rolling, but would like us to take the reins and make this thing ours. Further communication will be mostly through email between now and the next meeting. Does that help? If you have more questions I could try to answer them to the best of my recollection or you could probably pm Smitch I did once and he responded the same day, so I assume he checks it regularly.
P.S. Awesome rides everyone! It was gnarly seeing that many Ducs in a parking lot that wasn't a dealership.
A further detail for those interested. I recieved this email and was told to spread the word so this seemed the most effective way:
I just wanted to thank everybody for the fantastic turnout last Friday. It was obvious that
the attendance was more than what we had planned on, but I'm certainly not complaining.
Spread the word to other Duc enthusiasts that you know. We've got a great foundation to
This is the first e-mail that I have sent out from my new [email protected] address.
I hope that I have entered everybody's address correctly into my address book. I guess that I will find out
when I get undeliverable mail returned.
Please plan on another meeting for the election of officers, sometime around the 29th of March.
The meeting place is still in the air, but there was one suggestion of using a community room at
one of the libraries in Springs. I have also looked into possibly using Conway's Red Top on N Carefree.
The room would be free, but is not available on Fridays nor Saturdays.
If any of you have suggestions where to meet, please let me know no later than this Friday.
Once again thank you all for participating in the initial meeting. Keep on coming and bring a friend.
If I may borrow a quote from Hill Street Blues, one of my all time favorite television programs,
"Be careful out there".
