    DCS_2023 Special Bonus Gifts (Give-aways)

    Special Limited Edition Bonus Gifts for all Registered DCS Attendees

    The DCS Planning Team is very pleased to announce we will be giving away
    Special Limited Edition Gifts to all Registered DCS Attendees this year. You
    must be present, in person, to accept the Free Gifts, since the Free Gifts will
    be handed out by a third party at the convention, during the event.

    At this time, there will be at least two free gifts, with the first of the two gifts
    having enough quantities for each of the Registered DCS Attendees and VIP’s,
    while the second of the gifts will be available, first come, first serve, on a more
    limited basis, since we do not know how many will be left at time of DCS 2023.

    As mentioned in other posts, DCS Registration will run through July 23rd and
    the number of Special Limited Edition Gifts will be based on that total number.
    While we do not anticipate selling out DCS Registrations before July 23rd, it is
    possible we could sell out early, so if you plan to attend, do not delay too long.

    Brief Recap of DCS 2023 … and a Thank You

    Brief Recap of DCS 2023 (thanks and more details later) …

    I would like to thank all the attendees of DCS 2023, as well as
    the VIP Guests and all the volunteers that made the event a
    success, through many challenges (many of them personal to me).

    Over the duration of the convention, most of the DCS attendees
    found out that my Mom passed away just before DCS started and
    that her wake was yesterday, and her funeral was today.

    I wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for my
    Mom (especially the last two months she was in Home Hospice)
    and after they found out that she passed away just before DCS.

    My Mom organized conventions, decades ago, for her Fraternal
    Insurance Organizations, so she was an influence on me to take
    up the challenge to continue DCS for Ken K. after he retired.

    Matt Sommer, Tony Swann and myself have headed up several
    great teams of volunteers, over nearly a decade and they were
    all asked to assist even more this past week, during DCS 2023.

    There will be more event details, photos and videos posted, as
    the team has time, over the upcoming days, weeks and months
    and I appreciate all of their help, whenever they can find time.

    As for myself, I am planning to adjust my priorities for a while,
    to focus on family and a multitude of other things that I need
    to address, during the upcoming weeks and months.

    I plan to check in, when I can, and offer details and updates
    after I have had a little time to decompress, and take a little
    extra time to spend with family and friends. RIP Mom.

    Regards,
    Rich W.
