Partial re-post from earlier...........

As far as getting involved, Ken, what would you like me to do? Just name it.


I would ask each member to contact as many of their friends and fellow El Camino owners as they can. Tell them of the possibility of a 60th Anniversary gathering that involves the entire Association - and as many other El Camino owners as can be mustered. Ask them to take a few minutes to go to the 60th Anniversary Thread, read the comments, and then express their opinions in the accompanying Poll. We need our membership to get excited about this event, because it's very hard - if not impossible -to excite others if you have no excitement about it yourself. Talk about an event that could draw 100s of El Caminos - El Caminos of every condition, with owners at every stage of initial buy, beginning restoration, nearing completion, and final product - everyone of the cars prepared to the nines for National exposure. I've been involved and present at two El Camino events where over 100 Elkys attended, and two others with over 80 Elkys parked in neat rows. Let me tell you - there is an air of excitement, comradeship, and pride of accomplishment that I have never experienced anywhere else! No one has ever experienced an event of El Caminos like this one can be, and we should all be the Association's ambassadors in getting the word out, singing the same chorus and verse to any El Camino owner we can find.

But, alas, most of the membership has already decided to wait it out - sit on their hands until they determine whether to join in or remain on the sidelines where shots can be taken later if the plan falls through the cracks. There will always be naysayers, and that's acceptable to a point - opposing viewpoints can make for a more organized final approach - but the absence of senior leadership's support in the initial talk about such an historic event is remarkable - where's the spirit shown when we dragged the Association back from the brink of failure back in 2010 & 2011 through the very successful revitalization project? Working together, we grew this Association from approximately 14,000 to almost 30,000 members. I had seen the growth possible while working on getting members involved in the 2009 Carlisle, PA celebration of the El Camino's 50th anniversary, and the beginnings of the 2010 Texas run-up to Belton I. Folks, anything is possible when we put our mind to it and work together to accomplish a common goal. Let's make up our minds to either do this or not do it. Either way, those who are sitting on the sidelines should come forward NOW and tell us why we should just forget it - step up and tell the rest of us why this is a bad idea for the El Camino community and our Association. If they won't step up one way or the other, then they should step aside and make way for others who will stand up and be counted!

As for my plans - I have the benefit of mass-eMailing. However, those eMails go to only approximately 60 percent of our membership because of spam preventions placed on many internet eMail softwares. Then, the fact that many of those registered will not accept eMail from program Administrators serve to limit my contact abilities further. So, I'm going to attempt eMailing as many members as possible, beginning in the central portion of this Country and moving outward as time allows. eMailing the membership who have been active over, say the last 5 years, will take months, but is the only way I can get the word out. Spreading the word at meetings, shows, and other events can have a great impact - ask the emcees of events to mention the 60th Anniversary show during the announcements portion of the program. We need to put tremendous efforts to make this event a reality. I'm willing to make the effort - who else is in?..................Ken

Just to clarify a few things about the cards.

When requesting cards be sure to PM me your full name and address. I sent Lenny's to him c/o Jimmy Buffet the Keys, Fl.

I do not know what the demand will be for them so I am sending 20 to anyone who wants them. If you run out PM me to get more if available.

Be sure to write your user name and/or your real name on the line at the bottom of the card. That way the lucky Elky owner knows who gave it to them.

Yes, they are free. All I ask is a donation to me. Preferably in large denomination bills. Just kidding. DON'T SEND ME ANYTHING. THEY ARE FREE.

I got the first 4 mailed out today.

Most of the credit needs to go to Josh for the awesome logo.

I just took the ball and ran with it. He's the one who actually made said ball.

Default thanks for the cards

Sean, thanks for the cards I should be putting some out by the weekend. I'll probably have some made to help you out.

It's gonna be tough for me I have plans to bring 3 Elkies if not 4 - only if I get them all done. It will be challenging to get them done and very challenging to get them to the event.

I'm on the 2 year plan for this event and that's when I plan to take a break, after the event.

Thanks goes to Josh and Sean for bringing the logo to the cards and you putting them out.

Geno

They were 24.95 shipped for a thousand.

Thumbs up Information on the Way

I'll send you a PM, Sean, for a VistaPrint order. I can slip one in each time I mail out decals and other items to new members. And I'll send a quantity out to most of the Board of Directors - even those who have not expressed support (poke, poke - prod, prod - cajole, cajole)! Thanks again for your efforts.

I've also modified the NECOA Flyer by including Josh's image of the 60th planning. I will send copies of that out to any member or Director who requests it. But I'll need to get a new printer in first. This is the second one I've worn out in the last couple of years, and HP is getting mighty proud of their offerings for my needs. Even my spare has begun acting up............Ken

I think (there I go again, thinking) the new thread is for steering/planning/organizing committee.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, anyone who wants the business cards please PM me this weekend and I will get them sent out in Mondays mail.

I leave for work for 3 weeks and wont be able to send any out until I get home.

Anyone who has already PM'd me your cards are either in the mail or being sent Monday. (just thought I'd throw that in because I like bananas)
