Fun Ford Weekend

Open Question....
Fun Ford Weekend draws so many and the amount of Stangs that show is incredible. Good chance for membership drive for non-club stangers and from other Mustang Club members that overlap our region.

My point is this....I have not been real active in SCMC as of yet for many diff. reasons BUT plan to become more active beginning right now. I have been a member of the BuckeyeStangs (www.buckeyestangs.com ) for a short while and attended some events. The club is full of good people and are they are somewhat local in scope. A number of NortheasternOhio members of this club are planning on attending FFW at Norwalk and meeting up early in the a.m. on Sat. near the track. Would it be beneficial to both clubs to have members meet up that Sat. morning, park together, and "cross-pollinate" the clubs within the Ohio region. Some guys own Cobras, some modified GT's, Mach1's, Bullitts, etc....
I know this might spark some debate and I definitely am not trying to overrun anyone or either club. I am simply trying to be a member of both clubs and attend the same event as part of both of the clubs. If BStangs and the SCMC attended this together, at worst it is a chance to directly meet and interact with other Mustang enthusiasts. And best, it raises membership for both clubs, opens up more events to us Ohio Mustang people, and creates "critical mass" for any future events we want to sponsor and run ourselves here in Ohio ( ie: Mustang track day at Norwalk or Mid-Ohio - think big! )
Let me know what you think.....I can coordinate the meeting place on Saturday morning for both clubs, we can enter, park, and show together.

This makes sense to me...or am I on Pluto?

Nevertheless....where are we meeting on Saturday morning? The earlier the better as the show crowd for Saturday will be large!

I definitely want to be early Saturday as I was told by 9:00 A the line for cars trying to get parked is pretty big. We are tentatively talking about meeting at the Burger King located on Rt 250 south of Norwalk at Rt 20 interchange. From there it is 1 1/2 miles to Rt 18 and the track. It is directly across from the hospital. I am up for any time early am.

Relative to joining forces, I am also new to the club so I would let Mike and others who are longer term members comment on that one. I have no problem personally with meeting up with other clubs and members as it can foster better events for all of us down the road.

The guys from BuckeyeStangs have invited us to meet at one of their members homes just outside Wellington, Ohio and cruise over togther ( about a 20 mile cruise which would be awesome w/ about 25 Stangs/Cobras). They are also having a cookout after on Sat. nite which we are also invted to attend.
I would just need a headcount of how many SCMCer's are going and I can get all the details to everyone.

If we are more interested in doing our own thing that is fine....meet at Burger King, etc...I am up for that. I just think this is a great opportunity to meet more Mustang guys and enhance future events.

Let me know what you all think and post your response.

I am totally up for meeting up with a larger group of mustangs. I also agree that that we should get there rather early. If we have a 2 hour drive from columbus, I think we should meet up around 6 in the morning, I know it is early, but I woukd rather get there early, and not have to deal with a ton of traffic around 9 or 10.

Mike R, if we are going to meet up with this other group, could I ask you to be in charge of getting us directions to get there. Something as easy as possible, we will be taking 71 north towards cleveland.

I know there are a small group planning on traveling north together from columbus. I think 6 am would a good meeting time, and not eating, and just heading north. I am not sure of the total number of people, but the group will probably wait around until 6:05 or 6:10, and then head out. I am actually toying with heading to cleveland on friday night, and staying with my parents in cleveland, so the train up might be 1 car shorter, than the train that will be heading home. You all have my cell 614 205 2649, if we would need anything that day. Hope to hear from you all soon, and see you next weekend. Mike

Norwalk Raceway Park, Saturday

Not sure if their is two groups or one leaving Columbus. I am up for the Wellington trip.

If we are going to Wellington and leaving at 6:00 are we meeting at Bob Evans at 71 and Polaris?

I'll be coming from Columbus and a 6 AM departure is fine by me. I know of the Polaris exit but not familiar with the BoB Evans there, but that sounds fine by me. Just pick a place and I'll be there

Looks like the group is in agreement to join up with the BuckeyeStangs group at Wellington, OH. Once we know the details about exact location and time, please post it so we can all plan what time we need to leave to get to Wellington. Mike, does it make sense to have some sort of hand-out for potential Cobra owners on our club with at least the website address?

Yeah, and I have been working on that. Tony S. sent me some flyers on the club itself, and a membership registration on the back. I was hoping to have the cruise-in a little more set up, so that I could have a flyer about that as well, but I have not heard from Rich at Quaker Steak and Lube yet. We will see how that plays out this week.

Just so everybody is on the same page. There will be one group leaving Columbus around 6 am from the bob evans(or if it will be easier to meet at that marathon right off the exit in front of the quaker steak). We will be meeting the rest of the guys in Wellington to meet up with the buckeyestang's group, and driving over together. Directions to wellington will be provided by Mike R sometime this week. Hope that helps

Hey gang,
I think that Carol and I would be interested in making the trip just need the final info, since we would have to leave Cincy pretty dam early in the morn to meet up with you at 6:00, we are thinking about the possibility of coming up to Columbus Fri night so that we could meet you guys in the morning.
Any suggestions on where to stay so that we would be close to the meeting place?

Thanks,

Jeff & Carol

If you're looking for a relatively inexpensive hotel, a decent area is the HWY 161 exit (Dublin Granville Rd) off of I-71. It's in north Columbus a few miles inside of I-270. This would leave you fairly close to where we'd be meeting on Sat morning. There's numerous hotels right there (Motel 6, Superlodge, Best Western, etc.). Just type in zip code 43229 into mapquest or yahoo maps and check on the specifics.

Hope to see you guys Saturday .

Norwalk-Sat July8

Mike R-
I'm game on meeting as early and at any location. Not sure if my son, Mike M (mojo svt) is coming up Fri to stay over night with us in Avon Lake, on coming in Sat with other SCMC members. Just let either Mike or myself know what the plans are. Since we are local I can meet anywhere without much of a hassle. I do agree that we may need to be there early. I talked to a lady at the Norwalk raceway and she seemed to indicate that scout members could hold spots for others, but I don't know if that is true.

Hello everyone, my name is Chad Williams. I have a 2000 S281 Saleen speedster (440rwhp) and a 97 Cobra. I am from Buckeyestangs and am the one from Wellington that has invited everyone to meet at my place in the morning. Im very excited to have the 2 clubs meet and have a huge group of mustangs cruising over to Norwalk together!

I see that most will be coming from either the Columbus area or the Cleveland area. I will make up a set of directions coming from 71 north and from 480 West for both parties. If anyone needs any other specific directions, please let me know and ill get you here with no problems!

Wellington is a smaller town, and i live on the outskirts of it. You will have to come down some country roads, but none are stone or dirt, so no worries on the cars. They are country roards, but the main ones. Im even going to travel down acouple to make sure no construction is going on. I have a long driveway (about 300foot) plus the turn around area, so i should be able to accomidate about 30-35 cars with no problem. My address is 24349 West Road, Wellington Ohio, 44090 for anyone that wants to get an idea of where i am ahead of time.

Also, as stated before, we will be coming back to my place after the show for a cookout. I have a swimming pool, hot tub, pool table downstairs, and ill put up a volleyball net. Please feel free to bring kids if you are bringing them to the show with you. We'll cookout some burgers, dogs or what ever anyone else brings. There will be some "adult" beverages for those that are able and of course pop, tea etc for those that dont.

If anyone has any questions, or something was explained, please feel free to ask me. Ill check back here many times, or feel free to send me an email at gtmustnggy@aol.com. My cell number is 216-337-0142.

Thanks again, and im looking forward to meeting many new mustang faces and haveing a great weekend!!!!

Chad

I will be coming from the west - Perrysburg, OH area. I can take Rt 20 all the way and cut south to Wellington or I could turnpike and then cut south. Chad, any suggestions on best way.

Jeff and Carol,

If you guys are meeting at the Polaris exit there is a Wingate Inn that is reasonable and has excellent lighted parking just of the exit.

Hey Chad,
That's a very generous (sp?) thing you're doing by inviting everyone to your place. I may stop by for a little while afterwards if it's not too late.
We will be leaving from rt 57 & rt 10 around 7:30 am on saturday. Look forward to seeing everyone there.

Hector
