    VIP Guest, Greg Sedoff, West Coast POG

    The DCS Lite 2021 Planning Team is happy to announce Greg Sedoff,
    West Coast POG, will be joining us for the entire event. Greg worked
    for DeLorean Motor Company for nearly a year, under CR Brown and
    he has some great stories from the early days of DMC and the QACís.

    Gregís presentation will be chronological, starting when he worked for
    Chevrolet at the same time JZD was courting Kelly Harmon. Greg was
    hired for his experience in distribution logistics, more than his technical
    aspects of the DeLorean automobile, however, Greg had a lot of driving
    experience with the first and only DeLorean on the road in SoCal in
    early 1981 (some good, some annoying and some terrifying) and lots of
    the day to day office routine has its own interesting set of stories, which
    Greg is looking forward to discussing all of it and answering questions.

    Last Call for Event T-Shirts while Event Registering for DCS Lite 2021

    Slight change to the last date to order Event T-Shirts when registering.
    Due to the timing with the upcoming weekend, we need to pull-in the
    deadline for ordering T-Shirts from August 1 to July 30th about Noon.
    So if you want Event T-Shirts, itís best to order them in next 12 hours.

    Although Event Registration will remain open until 08/08, we will close
    the T-Shirt ordering tomorrow when Tony is ready to send in the order.
    By ordering tomorrow, we should be able to pick up the order by 08/10
    (or sooner) so we will have them all sorted and ready for the event.

    What's the refund policy? If I can get the time off I might not know for sure until after the 8th.

    Although not fully stated in advance, for the last few DCS Events (until asked),
    the refund policy has remained basically the same since DCS started in 1998,
    even though CC fees and PayPal fees have worked their way into the equation.

    However, we have never had a DCS Event during pandemic conditions, so that
    was given significant consideration prior to planning a scaled-down event this
    year, both as a replacement for last year’s cancelled event and 40th Birthday.

    So, with that in mind, we minimized the event cost and removed requirements
    for dinners (to see the evening talks and presentations) all while still attempting
    to meet facility minimums for rooms and equipment rentals, guest rooms, etc.

    Even with select safeguards in place, pandemics offer few guarantees, except
    that there is a much better chance to lose money than to break even, and do
    not even think about making a profit. This event exists for the 40th Birthday.

    With all that said, depending upon when you cancel and how you registered,
    we may be able to offer a partial refund. For example, if you cancelled after
    your ID was printed and laminated, and you wanted your T-Shirt and ID mailed,
    then you may end up with about a $20 refund, plus your items mailed to you.
    Any refund would not be processed until well after this event, due to the other
    DeLorean 40th Birthday Events and British Car Shows in late August and Sept.

    Long answer short, partial refunds would be available, as volunteer processing
    of the refunds allow, but other substitutions may be available, such as a signed
    Framing John DeLorean poster, signed by Zachary DeLorean and Tamir Ardon.
    There are no guarantees any items, including posters or extra T-Shirts will be
    left at the end of the Convention, but attendees will have the first opportunity,
    followed by registered attendees needing refunds, then some may go on eBay.

    More details to follow, if needed or if requested.

    VIP Guest, Norm Ellsworth, Midwest POG

    The DCS Lite 2021 Planning Team is happy to announce Norm Ellsworth,
    Midwest POG, will drive to POG Fest with Jeff Synor and Chris Duvall.
    DCS regulars, Jeff (King POG) and Chris (Parts POG) should all make
    it to DCS Lite 2021 by Friday and they will be here through Sunday.

    It’s been a few years since I met Norm during a Woodward Weekend
    with Jeff and Chris, but he had some great DMC and POG stories and
    he promised to make it out to DCS after he retired, which was recently.
    We plan to see Norm again later in the month at the Woodward Cruise.

    Norm also has some stories about a topic close to Tony Swann, and that
    is because Norm was assigned VIN...520 for a while and Norm’s name is
    on one of the reference lists given to the Receivers (who had - what car)
    and that list is one of the first documents Tony used to find some POG’s.

    Although we will have to wait and see if Tony will get VIN...520 prepped
    for Summer use in time (AC needs recharge), Norm is looking forward to
    talking about his days at DMC and QAC’s, and spend some time with the
    other POG’s at DCS Lite 2021, including Greg, Jeff and Chris.

    Returning VIP Guest, Ronnie Arnold, 50K mile Endurance Test Driver

    The DCS Lite 2021 Planning Team is happy to announce Ronnie Arnold,
    DeLorean 50K mile Endurance Test Driver will be a returning VIP Guest
    (first DCS appearance at DCS 2016) to tell a bit more about endurance
    testing the early DeLoreans and to endure some of our DMC questions.

    Ronnie and the other 50K mile endurance drivers were the critical path
    at the end of the DeLorean project, to make sure early DeLoreans were
    durable enough to be given the stamp of approval to be built and sent
    over to the US market in the Spring of 1981.

    We thank Ronnie and his fellow test drivers and mechanics for helping
    make the DeLoreans ready to launch, 40 years ago. Thanks Ronnie.

    Update to Lunch Break options (Thursday and Friday)

    Update - as of meeting with the hotel staff this afternoon, we were notified
    there would not be lunch service in the hotel restaurant due to a reduced
    restaurant staff, so attendees will need to use alternative options for lunch.

    Food delivery options are available (delivery to the hotel), but “outside” food
    must be consumed in your guest rooms or in the parking lots, near our cars.
    Try to plan your lunch break on Thursday and Friday, between 11am to 1pm.

    Lunch Break - 11am to 1pm - choose nearby fast food and restaurant options‬


    Hotel is Open for Breakfast and Dinner, from Wednesday through Saturday.
    Hotel is Open for Breakfast Only on Sunday.
