The big news for 2019 is that the ODSS will be taking Homecoming on the road! A big shout out and thanks to the Mullen Family for welcoming us to a new Home to come to in '19!

Details, such as we know them at this point, are located on the Homecoming Events Page Be sure to check back often as we flesh out the event over the next few months.

Mark your calendar now -- 26-28 April, 2019!
Location: Lexington, VA

The rest is TBD

Don't bother telling us just yet if you're coming or volunteering to help -- This announcement is just to let you know the date and place. Registration will be online and will be available some time in the New Year. There will be plenty of need for volunteers, but we'll get to that later! In the meantime, keep checking here and on the site above.

Woo hooo!!!!

I can't wait!! I've never actually *been* to Homecoming before ... wink

Thanks Grigg II and Grigg III for hosting this epic event!

What tools should I bring?

We’re sure looking forward to having everyone here for a special homecoming.

Yes, there will be ice cream.

A homecoming in Virginia sounds wonderful ! It might even be 3 miles closer for me too !! My friend Seab King thoroughly enjoyed his first homecoming last year and has already told me that he wants to come back !!

Just checked and it will be about 200 miles closer for Andy and I.
I may have a Pontiac on the trailer for the event!
Think John will drive his new Ford?

I have two.
A 54 that can be road worthy and a 51 that needs a lot of TLC.
Both have the straight eight flathead engines.

Can one of the ODSS crew help me out? There's a 235 engine and 3 speed trans available in West Virginia, (ZIP code 25430) but it needs to be moved before I head east for Homecoming in April. Can someone pick it up and hold it for me until then? I'll be glad to cover travel expenses and storage costs! I'd hate to see this one go to scrap! Thanks in advance!

Nothing against the old venue, but staying in the Shenandoah Valley and not driving through the city is a sweet deal. If I'm not out west exploring, I'll be there.

So my son and I are making plans to come, IF my daughter is done her university exams before this weekend. She has way too much stuff coming from her dorm and projects from first-year of industrial design to come by train or even wife's car.. may even need to rent a cap for the pickup.
Hopefully she's fine early enough in week to go north then come south to homecoming
