William J. Conway will be assuming the vacated Vice President Position.

I will assume the recently vacated Vice President Position until fall elections.  I will also continue to serve  as Treasurer. I intend to run for re-election as Treasurer and will also hope to get nominated to run for Vice President.  I have been a member of dvaroc.org for over 30 years, and have served as Treasurer at the request of Bob Brady  and other officers, since October of 2010. During my term I secured the first Tax ID number for the club and registered the club at my residence. I opened a Commercial Money Market account with free checking, and during my term funds have grown to over $6,000 for the first time in the history of the club. In addition to this I have contributed to much of the content on our website, and did event planning with Mike Sents, and often without his assistance. I published the traditional Lavoce newsletter in 2013 , 2015, and again in 2016. I was always in attendance in almost all of our events , and have facilitated dealership held events. I hope to find the required 5 nomination to continue as Vice President.

The motorcycle field will feature BMW, Police Motorcycles and Land Speed Record Holders. The 2015 event is the eighth consecutive year that we will have a display of vintage horse-drawn coaches and carriages that illustrate the evolution of transportation, something no other concours offers.”

The Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance encompasses three days of activities beginning with the Friday evening Barbecue, followed by the always popular Road Rally through the scenic countryside of Chester County on Saturday morning, culminating in a catered lunch. The Saturday evening Black Tie Gala, Silent Auction and Art Show Preview is the prelude to the main event, the concours d’elegance on Sunday.
