Seventh Annual Durant Meeting - NJ

Dear Members:

You should have received a copy of the registration form for the Seventh Annual Durant Motors Automobile Club Meeting in the issue of the Durant Partner that arrived at your home this week. And you should have gotten your copy before it even hit the newsstands.

Make your plans to travel to NJ now. If you are arriving by airplane, NOW is the time to book your flights. Round trip from San Diego to Newark is $216 per person. Yes, that is not a typo. I just booked five trips during the next few months and that is the fare that we paid. DO NOT put off till tomorrow what you can do today, because if you do the fare could be a lot higher.

For those of you that have never been to NJ, the Jersey Shore is beautiful, and do not listen to those that have negative comments about NJ......most are urban legend stories. You will love the Jersey Shore.

Peg and I have planned some nice activities for the three days of the Annual Meeting, but we encourage each of you to come a few days early or stay a few days late and visit some of the other places of interest in the Garden State.

Anyone that has a special request for an activity, please let us know either by e-mail, telephone or the good old snail mail, and we will get you the information. I know that some of you are interested in antiques, and there are a few places that have a lot of things that will be of interest. If you are interested in lighthouses, or museums, or just dipping your toes in the Atlantic Ocean, we will get you the directions.

We are also planning on putting together a Dining Guide of the Jersey Shore so that you know the places that we like to eat.

We look forward to meeting those of you that we did not meet at last years DMAC Meeting, and we also look forward to seeing old Durant friends again this year.

Re: Seventh Annual Durant Meeting - NJ

Just a reminder to all of you that are planning on attending the DMAC Meeting.

PLEASE, include a recipe for your favorite cookie, so that we can compile a Cookie Cookbook for each of you in attendance. More than one is ok if you have more than one favorite.

Yes Beth and I have been all booked up for over a month now and we even paid Charlie for our meals. So we are ready to go. Can't wait sounds like so so much fun. Never been to NJ before either. So come on folks. Don't be left out. Air fares are way down. A total steal now. See you all in the garden state of New Jersey in September. Go Durant Club go. Lance and Beth Haynes San Diego.
