Re: Hershey Fall Meet and the DMAC

I received the confirmation package from the AACA Hershey Region today confirming the DMAC will have two spaces in the Chocolate field which appears to be in a good spot. These spaces will be CE 44 & 45.

Re: Hershey Fall Meet and the DMAC

I will be in Hershey at the show and will be able to help out at the booth. I know someone who has three spots. He may be willing to let one go to us. I will ask him and let you know.

Re: Hershey Fall Meet and the DMAC

Now that we have the spaces at Hershey confirmed, I need members who will be attending or can attend to help man the area. I will have a tent, chairs, table and cooler with water there, Brochures and old issues of the Partner will be available to give out to prospective members. We will not be able to sell any of our club merchandise this time due to sales tax rules. I need other members, some of you who have already volunteered to help me out make plans and help me out. I don't want to be the only one there Tuesday through Saturday 8:00 to 5:00. So if you haven't made your plans, then please do, even if you can give me a couple of hours during your shopping and parts hunting would be appreciated. Hopefully we'll get some new members out of it. See you at Hershey in the Chocolate Field South!

Re: Hershey Fall Meet and the DMAC

Mike:
I plan to be at the Hershey swap meet for a full day but am not sure which day yet. I will stop by early on that day and see when a good time would be to help out at the booth. Do you have plans for sign up sheets to man the booth on these days? Let us know.

Re: Hershey Fall Meet and the DMAC

Hi Steve;
I don't really have any sign up sheets, but so far I have Tom & Karen, Gary , Don & Birgit, Ed, and others. So any time would be helpful, even for an hour just to give me a break for awhile. Of course any and all members who are at Hershey are welcome to take a load off, get some water or soft drinks and hang out for awhile. When we get closer, I'll let everyone know my cell phone number so they can reach me there. I'll set up on Tuesday and be there from Wednesday through Saturday. See you all there!

Re: Hershey Fall Meet and the DMAC

Leaving early in the morning for Hershey and the DMAC booth there and will be there for the rest of the week. Remember anyone visiting Hershey, please stop by. We'll have a seat and water/soft drinks waiting. Remember, South Chocolate section CE 44 & 45. Look for the big red tent. See you all there.

Re: Hershey Fall Meet and the DMAC

A big thank you goes out to President Mike for planning, organizing and getting the ball rolling on the DMAC space at Hershey last week. A lot of work, a flight in and out, hotel, meals etc. etc for nearly a week and that really adds up these days. And to top it off, Mike came to the meet with the uncertainty of a looming hurricane Matthew bearing down around his home!

Thanks goes out to Gary Kauffman too for helping Mike with the set up and take down of the tent, chauffeuring, and to both of them for being on hand there pretty well constantly every day throughout the week.

I think it's good to wave the flag as a marque, have a spot where members can drop in and relax and chat and also to promote DMAC to others. The weather this year was just outstanding and made for a most enjoyable meet.

I hope the group sees the merit in making this an annual event. Thanks Mike for taking the lead on this to get it off the ground and Gary for all your help too.
