|The Derby Bentley Society,
an affiliate of the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club, came into being through the
enthusiastic efforts of a group of RROC members who either own or highly
appreciate the Derby Bentley marque. The founders met at the home of Dale
& Marcia Powers in Anna Maria, Florida on February 15, 1997. It was
there that the first group of officers and directors was elected and the
|The founding members together with their
officers and directors set the tone for the Society when they selected as
its motto "On the Road", which is the title of the newsletter.
Keeping all of our Derby Bentleys running and roadworthy, and appreciating
the joys of touring in them, represent the central theme of the Society.
Restoring and maintaining these grand motor cars, and establishing and
nurturing a social structure of friends who will come together whenever
they can to enjoy their cars, are the primary goals of the Society.
|The inaugural edition of "On the Road" was
mailed out in May, 1997. It offers articles of historical and technical
interest, as well as write-ups of meets and tours and a chronicle of
upcoming events. Our "Inaugural Membership Directory" was mailed
out in June, 1997. It features a listing of our current officers and
directors, membership roster, car roster, and by-laws.
We are a young and growing Society. As of January 2007, we have over 200
members. We invite members from BDC, RREC, RROC of Australia, The Derby
Bentley Register (our RREC counterpart), and any other Derby Bentley owner
or enthusiast from around the world to join DBS. Members who reside
outside of the North American continent are not required to belong to the
Rolls-Royce Owners' Club. Feel free to print out an application in the
site named 'membership application' and mail it to the Membership
