We challenged Ernie to come up with 50 Dodges including 15 Command Cars for the Convention. I doubt either number has ever been achieved at a show in the U.S. Is this possible guys?

We'll be at the 2015 MVPA Convention in Topeka this month with an info table about our 2016 Convention in Pleasanton. Maybe we can get some folks to bring Dodges a long distance. What shall we tell them when they ask why they should drag or drive their Dodge 250, 500, 2,000 miles? Are they going to be a part of a record U.S. MV event Dodge attendance? Are YOU on Ernie's list yet? Please pass the word!

I wish I could make it to Topeka but it's not in the cards this year. Thanks for spreading the word about the record Dodge gathering that will be at the 2016 MVPA Convention!

When a few of us were at the big Scottish festival at Alameda County Fairgrounds last Labor Day weekend doing a WWII 70th display, I met 10 MV owners who came up to talk about the four jeeps. They said they either had a jeep or a WWII Dodge. None were in the MVCC and only two said they were in the MVPA. I wonder how many of the other 20,000 people didn't say anything yet own MVs? How can we reach the unaffiliated MV owners who don't see our event info in the MV magazines or club newsletter? Let's do them a favor and tell them about it BEFORE it happens, not AFTER!

One way is to hand out show info to anyone you run across that has a Dodge or anything else. We see them parked or driving around town. Chase them down! Don't violate any laws... :wink: We have a downloadable convention flyer on www.MVCCNews.net on the Convention page. Consider printing some at home and keeping them in your various glove boxes. They might come in handy. Take to your MV displays to hand out. Or take them around to stores in your area and ask the owner or manager if you can tape it in their front window (have tape in your pocket) or put it on their counter in a cheap plastic flyer holder (buy at Office Depot). Think auto parts, hardware, lumber, ag supply, hobby/model shops, or truck and tractor dealerships that often have bulletin boards. Then there are the VFW, American Legion, and other posts and halls. The vets might really want to attend, and they have family.

Any high traffic place with a bulletin board or window is fair game for our flyer. A lot of folks just like old cars and trucks, or military history. We want them to attend too. If a larger poster is more appropriate, contact Dave Ball or me. I also have a tri-fold brochure file I can email to you. It includes a MVPA app which is important to the MV owner because only MVPA members can register and show MVs. They now have a $35 electronic membership where their cool magazines are viewed electronically.

Let's go VIRAL!

Time for all military Dodge owners to get on Ernie's list AND more importantly, pre-register with the MVPA so we know what space to plan for!

Any questions about the event, see the info on www.mvpa.org and on the Events Forum here on the G.
