Winterthur Point to Point (Julie) - Great time even though the weather did not cooperate. Steeplechase
was canceled due to rain. Lots of raincoats and umbrellas. All was not lost though since DEC’s tent was in the
Marketplace due to providing kids activities i.e. crayons, coloring books, water color, glitter, stickers, stuffed
horses, balls with horse inside, etc., which provided fun for the kids. Julie’s daughter’s boyfriend donned the
Liberty costume and was a big hit. Everybody still tailgated and saved the day. Julie hopes for more DEC
participation next year.
Autumn on the Brandywine (Julie) – Date is September 7 with rain date of September 8. Will be held at the
State National Parks at Brandywine. Same location as last year. Lunch, live music, raffles. Lunch will be set
at a specific time this year rather than waiting for riders to return sporadically. Cost is $35 per rider, which
includes new membership or renewal. This is just a RIDE, not a RIDE/DRIVE. Julie will get planning committee
together and get guides established for this year’s event.
Member Appreciation Day (Stan) – Date is Sunday, September 29. Shorty’s catering will once again provide a
delicious lunch for all. Spread the word. Hope to see you there! George Parris asked if DDC could once again have
their meeting at the event location following the event as they have done in the past. Stan approved.
