As discussed, the dates for the next meet will be December 10th and 11th.

Where: My place (PM for directions)
When: December 10-11th starting a 10am

Reminder, I have a modest garrag for the hobbiest mechanic, and my driveway can accommodate up to four DeLoreans, and street parking is available if need be.

He is located in Norfolk, so no I will not be making that trek. I was thinking he might have been in the west part of VA and if I happen to not have a backlog of work I might try to attend, but not all the way across the state.

Also a bit far for me. If we can ever have one closer to the middle of the state, or even here in Blacksburg, I know of at least 2 more owners in addition to Michael who would like to come. I don't have space for a meetup yet (currently working on buying a place though), and I know Blacksburg is a bit far, but just putting that out there if we're ever able to move it just a little bit further west.

It hasn't been finalized yet, but 1mcfly4u is located in Richmond and has offered his garage as a meeting place. I haven't spoken with him yet, but I'd like to plan the next one there. From that I want to establish a circuit of sorts that goes all around the DCVAs members areas, and give the meets some structure.

It does not look like I can get down there this weekend, ou hot water heater dies earlier this week and I need to replace it and the pipes and my plumber buddy can only come over tomorrow to help me out. Is there something planned for Sunday? I'm hoping to only be involved Saturday with this.

Damn.... Shitty luck man. I hope it all works out for you. Originally I had planned on a two parter meet, but because I'm on the night shift it looks like it'll be a no go.

But if things go as planned, the next meet will be at your place if you're able to host. We have plenty of time to plan it all out.

Sorry man, we stuck close to the 7 cities for this meet. For the next meet we're thinking same area or maybe Richmond. It's still up. As of right now we've got six Ds registered in the DCVA of those two of them are road worthy and reliable enough to make trips in Excess of 150 miles, and those two live in the Hampton Roads area. So, right now that's the area we're most active. However we're not opposed to a drive, it's just that Richmond is a long drive for one member in particular, and best planned for an extended weekend. We hope to see everyone together soon though!!

I had no idea what kind of mess I was in for today. I opened the access door to under the house and steam started spewing out. Long story short the pipe going to my hot water tank had cracked under the house , that was why we were losing so much hot water. I decided since i was gutting the rest of my pipes from copper to CPVC I'd go ahead and hook my new water heater and washing machine up in their new homes in the utility room. I got about 75% done today so tomorrow won't be to bad...if I don't just knock it out over night. Now I know why I havn't been working on my car the past year, this house is eating my soul.

Yup , next meet can be held here if everyone doesn't mind coming to the central part of the state. Of course that will motivate me to clean the garage out and uncover 2808 so I can work on it. WE can all work out the details of the meet and go from there. I looked forward to seeing you guys again, theres always next time.

Is it true that there was a big fight at the last meet and two members left bleeding?

Here is one of the group on the fly (L-R) MikeZ, 7041, SamHill, and 1258

It was a good meet, bloody mess and all. Afterwords we took a drive down to a nice local sports bar which was packed because of the Army-Navy game that was going on (anyone know the outcome of that?). LoL, I thought driving down the road in one DeLorean was a show, two was just incredible!! I hope I can make a DMA meet sometime and see 15+ going down the line!

(did it work this time?)
