DMC Open House, October 14-16, 2011

DMC 2011 Open House Event
Friday, October 14, 2011 6:00 PM -
Sunday, October 16, 2011 2:00 PM (Central Time)

Registered attendees will be able to pick up their goody bags and registration packets at Marriott's Springhill Suites Hotel beginning at 3:30pm Friday afternoon. Then, relax by the pool or catch up with old and new DeLorean friends in the lounge.

The Friday evening reception at DMC will commence at 6:30pm, with the theme "The Art of the DeLorean". On display will be fine art and photography of the DeLorean car as created over the years.

Registered attendees will have access to several different informative technical seminars, warehouse tours and guest speakers. Also on Saturday, the DeLorean Marque Certification will be taking place along with a People's Choice event, as well. Lunch, catered by Panera Bread, will be available on site as part of the registration package price.

The popular massage/manicure package along with the salsa dance demonstration and instruction is back again this year! Would you or someone accompanying you be more interested in a massage and mani/pedi than listen to a guy talk about stainless repair techniques? This package is the answer!

Our special guest speaker Saturday will be William F. Haddad, a former executive and director of the DeLorean Motor Company as well as author of "Hard Driving: My Years with John DeLorean". This is Mr. Haddad's first appearance ever at a DeLorean event, and we are sure that attendees will find his recollections and insights to be most interesting.

Saturday evening's dinner will bring you, truly, home to Texas. A barbeque cookout with all the fixin's (vegetarian option available) at Houston's H&H Ranch - complete with mechanical bull and other entertainment and surprises. This year's raffle and auction will benefit DeLorean owner Kyle Franklin, who along with his wife formed the wingwalking team Franklin's Flying Circus. On March 12, 2011, they were forced to perform an emergency landing and both suffered severe burns as a result. Amanda sadly passed away from complications of her injuries on May 27, 2011.

The opportunity to take your DeLorean (or rental car, if you dared) on Houston Motorsports Park's 3/8 mile banked oval track was such a hit at our last show in 2007 that we've decided a return trip is in order. The crew at HMP is excited about our return and our exclusive access to the track for laps and a bit of a "course challenge" will wrap up our event for 2011.

The full registration cost per person is just $179 for all the weekend's events and activities.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  In order to ensure an enjoyable experience for all the participants, attendance is strictly limited to the first 150 people who register. Each year that we have held this event (2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007) some people were disappointed when they put off registration to the last minute only to find out that we no longer had room for them! Don't let this happen to you - register today!
