Dave had a part in starting MOCS club
when Dave, Bob Lee and Larry Hutchinson went to the Bicycle meet and after the meet they got an idea to form a club with the
intention of putting on a scooter meet and swap meet in the Columbus area.
The very first meet was held in 1996 at Watkins
Memorial High school in Pataskala, Ohio.
They had about 30 show bikes show up for the one day meet. The very next year
the show doubled in size. After that they had to move the show to Plain City, Ohio where it has been for 18 years.
Dave for starting something good for all us scooter lovers.
