What ever happened to Dana Morgan?

With the Chance buyout, did he stay on as a manager, or is he doing something else?

He was at IAAPA with Chance-Morgan. His badge did say Chance Rides, not Chance-Morgan. I'm pretty sure he is still either a VP or something like the COO of the company.

It was my understanding that he was more or less letting go. I'm sure he has the "bug" and will stay involved, but it's my understanding that he has pretty much relinquished control.

Steve Okomoto is another one who is out, now working for a small consulting firm (name escapes me). My understanding is that he pretty much is like the US version of a Werner Stengle, involved with the design but not necessarily the core technology or manufacturing.

Dana is also half owner of the ride operation at Belmont Park in San Diego.

Okamoto works for Dynamic Designs, which is located in California.

Well, that was a great opprotunity for Steve. I would not be surprised if he eventually goes into business for himself, though.

No, half owner of the ride operation. The land the park sits on belongs to the city of San Diego. The buildings belong to a company that leases them to shop owners. The San Diego Coaster Co. leases spots from them. The Plunge belongs to the city and is used in conjunction with an athletic club.

Cool.

So we lost Steve, and Dana? That sort of defeats the purpose of Morgan Coasters.
