Hi, my name is Dan Wheeler...

...and I am running for the position of Director of the Midwest Chapter of North American XJ Association.

I have been involved in since 2001 when I attended my first event in Tellico TN., for the Cherokee Crawl. I became involved in XJ's during the winter of 2000 when I was preforming a frame up restoration of a 79 CJ-5. My dd at the time was a 95 Mustang GT and I knew I needed a winter vehicle. The local dealer had a 93 Cherokee Country with a small lift on their lot and I thought it would be 'cool' to have a Jeep as my winter ride being I was restoring a Jeep of a different nature. Later that winter I read an article in one of the rags about and the Cherokee Crawl. I later went to the website and gained tons of information on what now has become my formost addiction.

has become more to me than a club, or another 'Jeep website', it has become a place I can come to to bs with people that have become life friends, and still learn the latest upgrades to my already modified XJ. has become a huge part of my life, one that I will never leave.

My need to become more involved in is why I am running for the position of Director. I want to see the growth and stability of the club be a more personal agenda for myself. As Director, it will allow me to do this.

I surf many Jeep sites, I post on few. is my home.

As your Director, I will do my best to keep and her members a priority.

Questions? Fire away...

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you,
Dan

That's a pretty general question, and keep in mind that "I" wouldn't have the power to do anything myself. There's BOD set up to have a wide range of opinions and input into the decisions that are made for the club.

My intentions are to preserve the quality of what we have, a GREAT club. There is no "next level". If the situation arises where change is needed I will be there to represent the club.

Oh, and I'm pro life.

I'd be careful with that statement. I recall the hotspring-fed lake in Hell freezing over before...You should know this as a Michigan native.

If MI were the Hell I was referring to, it would have been last night!

Dan,

Do you feel that you can work with the existing BOD in a professional and polite manner?

Re: Hi, my name is Dan Wheeler...

Dan,

Do you forsee anything that might keep you from being able to carry out the duties of a Director if elected as such?

What are your thoughts on a splitting of the chapter due to the shear size of the states that we cover? Is it needed or not needed?

Do you think that cheese should be considered its own food group.

I like your bald head.

Cheese "no hidden agenda" Man

Re: Hi, my name is Dan Wheeler...

I don't for see anything that would get in my way.


At first, I felt the chapter was too big. It is a big chapter but we are making it work.

Cheese should be the official food of the MWC and anyone that doesn't like cheese should be cheesed and feathered.

I like you rubbing my bald head!

Re: Hi, my name is Dan Wheeler...

I kind of wanted to split the chapter when I was pres. but never got it done.
I think it would be a good idea.

btw, I am heading up the 'Adopt a Newbie' program. I had this idea last year and it's going to be put into motion this year. I feel it's going to be a great program that will help the growth of our club and make WF 'easier' to the new peps.
