President's Message

Dear Dodge Brothers and Sisters,

As I write this, we have just finished our first week of antique car touring in over a year. Touring with the Horseless Carriage Club of America for their Clay Green Memorial tour this May, was a real treat. They really showed us how a club can put on a successful meet in an innovative and safe way in this new world we find ourselves in. Everyone had a good time and seeing old friends after a year of lockdown was like a breath of fresh air. (even if the fresh air was 90 degrees).  My car did not perform as well as I had hoped, but we still have a few bugs to work out. On Memorial Day weekend, I took my 1918 Army staff car to a living history event in Gettysburg, and it was 40 degrees cooler! I think it’s supposed to work the other way around. 
As I start the planning for the Hershey Fall meet, I am learning that we may have to accept that some things are not going to be the way they always were, and may never be again. There are big changes on the horizon, not only for our club but for the Hershey meet as a whole. Our biggest challenge for that week is going to be our banquet and membership meeting. The next Target on the horizon is the Charleston, SC tour in April. If you haven't reserved your rooms yet, do so right away, they are filling up fast. I am going to be working on my car between now and then, so should you. Take them out around the neighborhood and give them some exercise. Let's look forward to us all getting back together again.

Mark Ounan
