Hotel Information:

I have contacted Candlewood in Columbus which is willing to block some rooms for us for anyone who is looking to spend the night. When you call them please just let them know that you are with the event for Ohio Ford Focus Owners, May 2nd. They will be able to accommodate you. If you plan on spending the night you need to make your reservation before April 2nd. The rates will fluctuate a little bit depending on when you book (it is a Saturday night which is normally the most expensive) however they are willing to give you the best rate possible.

I completely forgot that Spring Into Focus is the same time of the year roughly. If anyone that hosts the Spring Into Focus event wants to collaborate please let me know. I'd be willing make this 1 big meet.

I dont see a need for a SiF if this is happening. We usually lack proper organization for the event and finding a specific time/date always seems to be a struggle. I am fine with doing this instead, sounds fun. What do my other Ohio mod friends think?

The only thing I am slightly worried about at this moment since I am not in cbus is that the Roosters down there seems a little small. My parents are in dublin and I have been to the Goodyear next to Roosters many times since I worked for them. I'm a little afraid that they are going to have a hard time accommodating a big group. I am sure they will break us up in groups to seat which is fine, but not sure if on a saturday it'll be that easy. Any recommendations of bigger places that would be willing to give us a party room at no cost and has a variety of food would definitely be great, i'd be willing to change the spot to go eat as we still have 4 months to decide.

I'd love to get some input from the cbus guys as we don't seem to have many on our facebook group.

I havent spent much time near West Broad, not sure what is around there. I dont really gamble but the casino is the only thing near there i can think of thats large. Back towards Polaris there are larger places that could probably accommodate a crowd better. The Quaker Steak is used to larger groups, there is a Dave and Busters as well near the mall. BJ's is larger as well, but little pricier than Roosters/Quaker. There is also a new Rooster's next door to Sonic there, its decent sized (not sure how big the one is on West Broad.) I'm simple though, I'd be fine just dining at Sonic lol

You know what, I think I will change it to the sonic as it would be more convenient and make a nice little cruise to it.

NOTE FOR ALL ATTENDING THE MAY 2ND MEET IN COLUMBUS. I spoke to Rob at Buckeye Raceway, if you plan on racing, to help save time you can pre-register your information on Buckeye Indoor karting's website now.

Just visit Columbus Ohio indoor kart racing there is a button up top that says "register", this is NOT for pre-payment, you will pay at the door. This is just to get your racer information into the system to beat the lines. Make sure to use code "9911" for our event.

Also, you are allowed to bring your own helmet it need to be closed faced DOT approved.
