To quote the official announcement:

DeLorean Fans and Enthusiasts,

DCS 2018 will be held at the Mega Center at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL from August 15 through August 19, 2018.

Although this is the same hotel that hosted DCS 2006, the DCS Events will be in different facility locations than in 2006, with all Car Show and Vendor activities indoors (no tents). More details about all the changes at Pheasant Run Resort will be in a following post.

As mentioned earlier this Fall, we are adding an extra day to beginning of the Convention, which will be a Full-Day, Tech Day at Baltria Vintage Auto Gallery (adjacent to resort; short walk) on Wednesday, August 15, at no additional charge, to all registered DCS 2018 attendees.

A "regular" DCS schedule will follow on Thursday, August 16 through Sunday, August 19.

Note: Saturday DeLorean Car Show event date will be very easy to remember: 8/18/18

The location selection process for DCS 2018 was significantly longer than years' past for a number of reasons and the maximum added value was provided by this location.

Pheasant Run Resort was sold a number of years ago, and a new investment firm and new management team is in place. The entire resort is in the process of improvement. The hotel's Tower Rooms have been renovated and other areas have been refurbished including the lobby, hallways, ballrooms, and both the indoor and outdoor pools.

The DeLorean Car Show for 2006 was held in the DuPage Expo Center and in big tents behind the Expo, which has since been sold off and re-built into a new VW Dealership. The Mega Center has similar Main Floor footage as Prairie Capital Convention Center from DCS 2016 and significantly more footage than the DuPage Expo Center in 2006.

The Mega Center has received a number of upgrades as well, including a tan coating on the floor (similar to DeLorean Motor Company Midwest, for reference) and new lighting for the Main Floor. Under the new management, the Mega Center has hosted the Midwest Mecum Auction and several annual car shows, including the Midwest Pontiac Show for several years.

The adjacent auto restoration shop across the street from the Pheasant Run Resort will allow DCS 2018 to have a Full-Day, Hands-on Tech Session Day during the convention. Baltria Automotive has 12 lifts, indoor showroom and covered outdoor showroom area. We plan to do on-lift inspections, door adjustments, install demos and other minor work.

The Resort also has a recently refurbished theater (seats over 300) that DCS plans to use for screening Tamir Ardon's DeLorean Documentary, which is scheduled for 2018 release, along with other screening requests, such as Steve Concotelli's OUTATIME documentary. The theater also allows DCS an alternate location for our Keynote Speaker presentations.

The DCS Planning Team has secured an initial block of hotel rooms for $99/night, with the more recently refurbished Tower Rooms for $119 per night. Hotel Registration will be open
before the end of this month, so check for links on the forum during the Holiday Season and on the DCS Social Media sites. The DCS Planning Team will work to get the links ready soon.

We plan DCS 2018 Hotel Registration links to be provided before the end of December 2017. We plan DCS 2018 Event Registration links to be provided before the end of January 2018.

More details to follow.

Thanks,
Rich W. [for the DCS 2018 Planning Team]

While I absolutely loathe the idea of ANOTHER show in that God-forsaken cesspool that is Chicago; at least it's later in the year, so AC functionality will be less debilitating.

So, who's up for a room share?

I'm in as long as I can make it....I'm planning to be there as long as I can get the time off. I might even drive my car there, especially if Jimmy is driving his.

As soon as the hotel starts accepting reservations, I plan to make a reservation for one of those fancy $119 a night rooms. I plan to arrive in time for the tech day.

As always, anyone that wants to split the cost of the room is welcome. In Orlando, five of us managed to share one room and we had no problems at all.

I'll be there!

Rich W sent me the details and asked me to post them on here, but Chad already beat me to it.

By the way, St. Charles is a very nice, safe area, 40 miles and a world away from the issues of Chicago. In fact, I lived there from 1991 until 2004!

Outside of Cook County, most of Illinois, including DuPage County where Pheasant Run is located, is solidly Republican. However, Cook County is roughly 40% of the State's population.

Update from Facebook:

Happy New Year! Hotel Registration is now open for DCS 2018 at the Mega Center at Pheasant Run Resort.

The DCS 2018 Discounted Room Rates are as follows:

Golf Rooms $99/night (may be renovated by Summer 2018.)
Tower Rooms $119/night (renovated in Winter/Spring 2017)
Loft Suites $189/night (recent renovation, but also less use)

Also available at reduced rates (detailed on the hotel registration website):
Whirlpool Suites, Executive Suites, Family Suites and Tower Penthouse Suites.

Please note the PRR Hotel Registration website is a little "clunky" and we continue working with the PRR Tech Staff to better clarify the button functions on the custom DCS 2018 link.

The opening page of the custom DCS 2018 Registration link lists all of the available days for Discounted Rates (Monday, August 13 through Monday, August 20, 2018.), for those who will want to book "shoulder days" on either side of DCS, in addition to the DCS 2018 Event dates.

Note: All these dates do not get pre-populated (as the default) in the Registration link page.

The DCS 2018 Event Dates are Wednesday, August 15 through Sunday, August 19, 2018.

The DeLorean Car Show event itself is easy to remember, since it is on Saturday 08/18/18.

Until (or if) the Hotel Registration website link is updated for better clarity, please use the following recommendations to get through the Registration process.

When you go to register, Do NOT Close the text that says "Please Join us for the DeLorean Convention and Show". That will clear the Event Discount Code from the registration process.

The "Complete Registration" button should be displayed as a "Start Registration" button, but it does function as a Start button, with the range of dates "highlighted" but not yet selected, and the Discount Code for DCS 2018 is pre-populated correctly. At this point, the rest of the Hotel Registration process seems to function properly and does not need any further clarification.

DCS 2018 PRR Hotel Registration link:

https://reservations.travelclick.com/2932?groupID=2089017

DCS 2018 Event Registration should be available by sometime during January 2018.
DCS 2018 Dinners (with Keynote Speakers) will be on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

More details to follow.

I just made a reservation with two beds. The reservation let me claim four people without the price going up. Check in is Wed, August 15 and checkout is Sunday, August 19. The full price is $548 and if we can get four people in the room we will only end up paying $137 a person. Normally I skip the Wed event and don't book a room for four nights, but there is going to be a sort of a tech day on Wed which I plan to be there for.

Lets hope we can fill this classy room with as much white trash as possible. The more people in the room, the cheaper it is for everyone.

Hear ye, hear ye! DCS Registration is open!


DeLorean Owners, Fans and Enthusiasts,

Event Registration is now Open for DeLorean Convention & Show.

Thanks to all the attendees of DCS 2016 that "Early Registered"
for DCS 2018 over the past few weeks. We appreciate all of your
ongoing support of DCS and a registration discount was a small
Thank You from the DCS Planning Team.

DCS 2018 will have more new DMC VIPs and new BTTF VIPs at
this year's Convention and many returning VIPs from DCS 2016.
The tentative convention summary is listed in another post and
Event Details are subject to change as VIP Guests confirm.

With a smaller DCS Planning Team, we were unable to provide a
Raffle Car (to help reduce costs), however we were able to keep
most of the costs the same as DCS 2016, except for the Event
Registration, which is similar to Celebration Exotic Car Festival, FL.

When compared to costs for other events, like Comic Con's and
World of Wheels shows, the per day costs for DCS is reasonable
and affordable, and when paired with the Dinners and Keynote
Speaker Presentations, DCS is an awesome, rare DMC experience.

Please note Registration prices cover VIP Guest travel, their hotel
and dinner costs, so the more DCS Dinners you attend, the more
value is added to your DCS experience. VIP Guests continue to
confirm, so check the forums and social media for the current list.

Many may recall, we had the last minute addition of sketches of
DeLoreans, by Mr. Giugiaro, that were raffled off at one dinner at
DCS 2016, and these were only available to dinner attendees.
All of our DCS Keynote Speakers add value to the DCS Dinners.

DCS Registration is now OPEN to the public, at Regular Cost,
through July 15. A Late Registration fee applies after July 16.

Thank you for supporting the DeLorean Convention and Show.

Rich and Tony are doing an amazing job on this project. If you are planning to attend, register as soon as you can since this helps them with the funding to make this happen.


In the past, I have not attended the Thursday night dinner. I went ahead and signed up for all dinners this time, mostly as an effort to pay a little extra for the hard work Rich and Tony are putting into this.

Anyway. I pity the fool who don't sign up for DCS soon!

The hotel room is already booked and anyone that wants to share just let me know.

Disclaimer. The flooded house project started in August 2016 for me. I think that was after DCS.

Regardless, I rebuilt a whole freaking house. Redoing a kitchen and putting new floor in the living room is nothing.

Just received the following reminder from Rich W.


DeLorean Owners, Fans and Enthusiasts,

Just a quick reminder, we are about 15 weeks away from the convention,
which is less than 4 months away from today.

If you have not registered for DCS 2018 yet, remember to Hotel Register
and Event Register within the next 11 weeks, for the best pricing.

Hotel Registration and Event Registration prices increase after July 15,
which is less than 3 months away from today.

I received another reminder from Rich W this morning.

DeLorean Owners, Fans and Enthusiasts,


The DCS 2018 Planning Team announces the Tech Day Schedule
for Wednesday, 8/15/18. Traditionally, second week of July
is Taste of Chicago, so it's appropriate DCS is announcing
it's FREE (mini) Taste of Chicago on Tech Day, for 8/15/18.


In summary, there will be FREE Food all day at Baltria Auto.
- Morning, Local Bakery items (or Donuts) and Coffee/Water
- Lunch, Chicago's Best Stuffed Pizza (IMO) - Giordano's
- Dinner, Chicago style hotdogs, Italian beef - Portillo's


Tentative Tech Day Schedule (subject to changes/adjustments)


8:30 - 9:00 Welcome to DCS Tech Day, FREE Coffee and Donuts

9:00 - 11:00 On-lift Inspections and light maintenance work

11:00 - 12:00 Wolfgang Presentation - DWT DMC Modifications

12:00 - 1:00 FREE Giordano's Stuffed Pizza (some thin crust)

1:00 - 2:00 Wolfgang Presentation - DeLorean Race Car Prep

2:00 - 4:00 On-lift Inspections and light maintenance work

4:00 - 5:00 FREE Portillo's Chicago style hotdogs and beef

5:00 - 5:30 Complete all On-Lift work and Tech Day Wrap-up


There is no additional Event Registration cost for DCS Tech Day,
but if you didn't book a hotel room for Tuesday or Wednesday,
you will want to add those one or two nights this week while
the Discount Hotel Room Rate still applies.


See you in August, at the Mega Center, at Pheasant Run Resort.


Thanks,
Rich W. [for DCS 2018 Planning Team]

Btw, I didn't mention you in the room share since you probably want peace and quiet, being that you have a house full of kids, but you are welcome to join us as well if you change your mind about having the luxury of a private room.

Yep. I signed up for every night.

Normally I don't sign up for everything, but in this case I did to help pay towards the total cost of DCS.

Should anyone want to skip one of the meals and do something else I'm game. If I skip a DCS meal, I'll simply consider it a donation towards the expenses of DCS.

That makes a grand total of five of us, which brings the room share cost down to $109 per person for the entire event.


I reached out to Tom Kish and he has a lot going on right now but is thinking about driving over to spend one night. Feel free to reach out to him and nag him to join us. Its always good to see honest Tom.

Of course, if anyone else wants to join us, feel free to chime in and let us know. I think we had so many people in a room at one of the shows, that the cost was well below $100 per person. It would be awesome to do that again.

These guys will be at the show but have made other arrangements for their accommodations:

I'll be driving mine in, even though the ICE offends Dead Lesbian Goat.

To make up for the burning of petrol products by myself, I've instructed Lou to put a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) on his car, as after all, it would fit right in with his bad-ass diesel alternator :biggrin:

Hopefully this will satisfy DLG's sense of social justice.....

We were worried sick about you young man! Steve was calling the police, I was checking the morgue and as far as we know Bill is still out looking you. From now on you let us know when you will be back home and that little trip to DCS with all your buddies? ONE MORE STUNT LIKE THAT AND YOU CAN FORGET IT!

I couldn't afford to pay for the room share for two, dinners for two, the travel expenses for two, and shop for rings so I'm going to have to rely on doing all I can for the show on a cheaper means.

On a semi-related note, I never realized how expensive rings are.

Be sure to search the web for coupons too. Last time I bought a ring, I think I either found a ten percent off or $100 off coupon.

Colleen is the most recent.

Additionally:

Dan Shea (Colleen's brother.)
Bill Collins
George Levy
Klaus Steiner (Wolfgang Hank still attending.)

I also learned that Chris N. won't be at DCS this year (although he wasn't announced, I was assuming he'd be there.)

If I hadn't already influenced Jimmy to go, I'd cancel and use my time off to visit Michigan this Fall (with or without my car.)

Amen. I was thinking to myself how events such as DCS are a nice "safe space" for us Delorean owners. We can park our cars, hang out for a few days, and don't have to deal with the idiots stalking us over our cars. Rich W basically takes care of the stalkers for us while we get to enjoy hanging out with fellow nerds for a few days.

On Google Maps it looks like area around Pheasant Run is a fresh hell of chain restaurants. Hopefully Andrew knows where the good dives are because I'm not really a "lets get drunk at Chilis" kind of guy.

Stay in the room with us, ya prick! What's the plan for when we have a few beers? I built you up to Jimmy, reminding him about the car you checked out for him, and all the cool 80's cars you have....etc. He'll probably want to be all celebratoryish, and you're going to let us down 'cause you'll need to drive home.

You should all have my cell number - it's still good (if you tried it in the past and didn't get a response, it's because I'm often in areas without reception, but will be in reception from now through Sunday). My plan is to arrive sometime Tuesday night before the sun goes down. I have a room at the resort booked for Tuesday night that I only just reserved this morning via a Groupon - $83/night plus taxes/fees, total $113/night. For the remainder of the convention though, I'm in the room share Wednesday night through Saturday night. If anyone needs a lift to/from an area airport (Midway, O'Hare, Gary, Mitchell, etc), I'm more than willing - just give me a call or text, but no emails or PM's as I don't have the internets on my phone (I'm still rocking the old school flip phone). 1798 will be there sporting the Vredestein tyres as there's no concours, hence no reason for the NCT's. BTW - notice my previous spelling of the word 'tires' - that's because they're Dutch :lou:

If anyone else is going to be there tomorrow night and looking for something to do, hit me up :biggrin:

Is anybody arriving early Wednesday morning of the 15th? I'm trying to find somebody to split an Uber with or otherwise find a way from O'hare to Pheasant Run. I also have room space if anybody is interested in sharing the cost of that. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

I'll be charging the A/C bright and early tomorrow morning, so I'll see you all at the show.....

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81NImg0HroL._SL1500_.jpgMy stinking A.C. started blowing in the high 60s tonight. Not sure if I have a leak or if it's the Red Tek stuff.

I'm about a hundred miles south of Memphis right now.

Now I'm debating whether or not to spend the night in Memphis or to drive all night so I don't have to deal with A.C. issues during the hot sun tomorrow.

I don't like driving at night due to fear of hitting a deer but I don't want to drive in 100 degree heat during the day with no A.C. either.

I'm roughly half way there. Spending the night in Blytheville, Arkansas.

I think I solved my AC problem. This evening I experienced a wide range of temperatures from 43 degrees up to 67 degrees. There was no consistency to the temperatures.

Upon stopping at a hotel for the evening I noticed a nice puddle of water on the driver side floorboard. It turns out the evaporator drain was clogged up this evening.

I cleaned the evaporator drain, soaked up the water from the carpet and called it a night.

Providing there isn't any more gunk on the evaporator, I think I should have a nice cold drive tomorrow.

Fortunately I made a small modification to my evaporator drain almost a decade ago that makes it super easy to clean the thing. Thank you Bill Robertson. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180815/500199024844bda9e659b276cc318ca6.jpg

I'm here already bitches!

I even did a little midnight swimming last night.

No A/C for me either - I had some issues with my manifold gauges. The vacuum I had on the system pulled the rubber seal right out of the low side hose and was blocking the schrader valve opening, so when I dunked my duster can in my pot of boiling water, the can blew up and blew my side tapper apart.

Josh S from Canada and Luke are here as well.

I had a choice of waiting in the airport all day, then fly out tonight (and miss the tech session)

Or

Drive an hour home, then fly out tonight (and miss the tech session)

Or

Go home & come back in the AM, arriving @8AM in Chicago (and miss the tech session.)

I'll miss the tech session regardless, so I decided to re-re-book for 1st AM tomorrow.

I got 3 meal vouchers, but they were giving jacksquat for other compensation (I think 'cause I live ~50 miles from the airport.)

After my trip I'm going to go online & submit a request. I did that when my return flight [from DCS2016] got cancelled...they reimbursed my hotel cost & gave me a travel voucher.

I can explain that, in part. The last one was in Illinois and there are a lot of people who don't like dealing with that state; myself included, and they chose an expensive venue on top of that.

If they're looking to boost attendance, I would suggest somewhere more centralized, with cheaper accommodations, and relatively airport adjacent (the one thing this show had going.)

I've spoken to a lot of people about this when I was helping with the Vegas show and they will skip DCS in lieu of a family vacation if it's not a destination that can be fun for everyone.

Don't blame me; blame the fiancee for loving the ring so much. It was SUPPOSED to be a test-fitting, but she started to tear up with joy in the jewelry store and, when she found out I designed it, that was it...

It's a vintage diamond set in a custom setting; simple, but elegant.

I had been PLANNING to pay on it a few months, but; despite claims to the contrary, I do have a heart and I paid it off on the spot so she could wear it out.

Next DCS, however, she's coming with me and I'll be driving my rattletrap.

Roger that....


Thanks guys for the great time and making a lot of new friends. I enjoyed the camaraderie and getting to put a face to the forum names. The beer was good too.

Great bunch of people. Glad everyone made it home and Steve got to keep his cool all the way home :)

Hope to see all again. And I guess I have a new nick name too :) Maybe I will have to change my board name now ;)

"Mr. Jim"

I like him, he's a cool dude.

That's Jimmy's car behind us:

9620I see what you did there. I was originally in that photo. You took me out and photo shopped yourself in so you could look cool.

It occurs to me I forgot to ask Mr. Jim his original owner purchase story . I am always curious to here how and why they bought a delorean. I also forgot to see his car but I think he said he didn't bring it .

Absolutely. I am always interested to hear original owner stories especially the time leading up to purchase, buying experience, first few weeks home. I think a new thread with a complete DeLorean ownership autobiography would be an interesting read.

Maybe Steve will venture close to Bristol or Kingsport later today and I can treat him to a burger and onion rings at a local favorite place "Burger Bar"

I second that.

I've met two others, and really like to hear about their experiences. When I looked at potentially buying 6033, I was at the owner's house having coffee for over an hour.

How 'bout an Original Gangsta like me? Am I the only OG to associate w/you? lol

It was great seeing everyone who came to DCS 2018! To those who weren't able to make it, you missed a great time, and we look forward to seeing you soon! When I was at DCS 2014 I remember Nightflyer Josh saying that DMCToday was like a family and he was right! Being a part of a group like DMCToday is one of the best aspects of DeLorean ownership!

I loved the security guys.

Sitting in front of the tower elevators, 8-12 of us in a lounging area
5 feet to the right, a HUGE sign, "NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINK IN PUBLIC AREAS"
10 feet to the left, an active, open resort bar
In the middle of our group: 3 open cases of beer being handed out to any attendee that walks by and chats with us
Typical security response: "Have a nice night, gentlemen"

That was totally awesome! I have a feeling that security has been instructed not to hassle convention attendees as conventions bring a lot of money into the resort. The last thing the resort needs is a reputation for hassling attendees. Plus I'm sure as conventions go, the DeLorean folks are pretty well behaved...even the thugs like us! LOL

Steve must have been full when he drove through TN. Too bad, not many people can say they had a goat buy them a goat cheese burger and a beer.


Meanwhile, here is actual footage of Rich and Nightflyer leaving DCS

Your car looked great. I didn't realize it was yours, I forgot you sold the blue one. I would like to have met in person, did you see and/or recognize any of us?
