8th Annual Club Picnic

8th Annual Club Picnic

Blendon Woods Metro Park - Sycamore Shelter (map)

Sycamore Shelter  (Same shelter as the last two years)

FYI:  THIS EVENT is rain or shine as we have already rented the shelter.

This is typically our biggest turnout of the year! We have reserved the shelter for the first part of the day so you may arrive anytime after 11:00 AM and we will try and eat at Noon and have to be out by 3:30PM.  This shelter has electricity and restrooms as well as swings and a large playfield.  We'll be supplying hot dogs, brats, buns, condiments, paper plates and plasticware and ask that the rest bring a dish to share (if you'd like) as well as what you'd like to drink.  As an FYI, no alcohol is permitted in the park. If you cannot or don't want to come for the food, come anytime you want and just hang out.  Bring your camera and lawn chairs as well if you'd like. There are picnic tables however. We will have a donation box in the shelter to help cover the costs of this event and a good assortment of great door prizes to give away that we will give away at 1:30.

Also, many of you know one of our members, Bill Hall, who owns a 2010 yellow Challenger. He is retired from the Columbus Fire Department and runs the Columbus Fire Museum. Our club toured it a few years ago when Bill opened it up special for us. We recently found out a car ran through the front doors of the museum on Easter and the crash propelled pieces of the door into the 1915 Model T firetruck causing extensive damage. Mark and I are planning a 50/50 drawing for the picnic this year with the proceeds going to the museum to fix the Model T. Yeah I realize it's a Ford, but it's a great piece of Columbus history and will help out a fellow member. I just wanted to put this out there so everyone can plan to buy 50/50 tickets. We'll still have our regular door prize tickets, too

Attendee note:

The Park Rangers are very particular about going the posted speed limit in the park, so please, abide by the posted speed limits so we are welcome back again next year.

Also,  we are going to try and have 'like' cars park together so we can take group pictures of the same models parked in a line.  So, when you show up try and park near other cars like yours if possible.

AMMO @ the 4th Annual Mario Knapp Memorial Car Show presented by Feazel

Quaker Steak N Lube (map)

Info:  This is the BIG one you don't want to miss! Dedicated to AMMO club member Mario Knapp who we lost in 2013, this annual car show is an event to honor our lost friend and carry on his passion for cars. 100% of proceeds from the fundraiser benefit a local 501c3 charity and a contribution is made to the 529 College Savings Accounts that were setup for Mario's three boys.

Our dear friend Mario Knapp passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 30, 2013, at the young age of only 27. He served in the U.S. Army and worked as a corrections officer with the rank of Sergeant. Mario was a wonderful son, grandson, brother, nephew and devoted friend to many. Most of all, a loving husband and father, his three young boys meant the world to him. Mario had a great passion for cars and he loved to spend his spare time working on his car, as well as helping other fellow car club members with their cars. He also enjoyed attending car cruises and car shows at every chance that he could. Simply put, Mario was the definition of a car enthusiast.

Goodie bags, dash plaques, t-shirts, door prizes, raffles, 50/50, live auction, music, food from Quaker Steak & Lube, Kidz Zone with free face painting and much more! Car Show registration is $15, but bring your wallet because there is always a ton of awesome items up for grabs in our raffle and auction thanks to all of our generous donors and sponsors. And we always have an incredible trophy collection like you've never seen before! Come on out for a fun-filled family-friendly day and enjoy all of the festivities while we raise money for a great cause in honor of a great man.

Club Plan: The turnout from fellow AMMO club members as well as hundreds of cars from around the region always make this an event you don't want to miss. Since this event started as a smaller show, largely attended by fellow AMMO members who came together to honor Mario, it has grown into an enormous event that we look forward to every year. It just goes to show what this AMMO family is all about - we turnout big time for this one. We will be looking for volunteers from AMMO to help with the festivities! Please contact Kyle Fischer if you are interested in helping out!

4th Annual Modern Mopar Fall Finish

4th Annual Modern Mopar Fall Finish

Buck Creek State Park (map)

As what has become an annual tradition to finish off the season for AMMO & NEO, we are going to do it again this Fall folks! So save the dates and start planning for our Modern Mopar Fall Finish - a fun-filled cabin weekend adventure that is planned for a dual-club meet with All Modern Mopars of Ohio and Northeast Ohio Mopar Group, as well as all of other Mopar club friends. For this year’s 4th Annual Fall Finish, we are heading to Buck Creek State Park in Springfield, OH for the weekend of October 13th-15th.

EVENT INFO

***More details will be filled in as we get closer, so stay tuned for updates!

The 2017 Modern Mopar Fall Finish will take place over the weekend of October 13th-15th. The main event will happen on Saturday, from approximately 12pm to 5pm with a cruise-in show, followed by a regional cruise of the area with both clubs for those that are just making it a day trip.

Tentative schedule…

Friday – Arrival Day!… Check-in begins at 4pm, so get settled in your cabin and then come join everybody for a little Welcome Party Potluck. Pending weather at that time, we will either have an outdoor cookout at the community firepit, or we will gather at a couple of the cabins as the cars roll in. Feel free to enjoy the resort at your own leisure. Some late night plans might develop knowing these two groups – lol. Who knows – poker, bingo, big campfire gatherings or other mischief. :)

Saturday – Show & Cruise Day!... This is the big day if you are not staying the weekend and just planning to come out and join us one day. Starting at 12pm, we will have one of the large park shelters rented out for our exclusive access, and there is plenty of parking for our own little cruise-in car show. As it has become tradition – remember to bring your decorations for this Halloween-themed spooky car cruise-in! You are welcome to bring canopies and chairs - just please make sure that the canopies are secured to the ground properly. Pets are also welcome, but are asked to remain on a lead/leash in that area. You are welcome to bring your own cooler with food and drinks if you would like. Following the show, both clubs will roll out for a cruise around the region, including a few cool stops for some group photo ops, and a final stop for a group dinner and entertainment (TBD) before returning back to the resort for the evening. And I’m sure some late night shenanigans will develop one way or another.

Sunday – Farewell Day!... Cabin checkout time is 11am. It will be an open day to enjoy the resort at your leisure before cruising back home. A fitting wrap-up to the 2017 season. :)

Please contact Kyle Fischer ASAP if you are interested in booking a cabin for the weekend!

7th Annual Cruise for Tots Toy Drive

7th Annual Cruise for Tots Toy Drive

Target (map)

We will meet at the McDonalds at Hunter Ridge (298 S Hamilton Rd, Gahanna, OH 43230), leave promptly at 10AM, and cruise to the Heath Target (270 Airport Parkway, Heath) where there is an event to gather toys. This is NOT an AMMO event, rather it is a collective effort of many car enthusiasts. However we have done this for the past four years.

EVENT INFO

We're back at it for our 7th annual Cruise For Tots toy drive on November 12th. Do you have a passion for cars, trucks, bikes and or simply enjoy helping those in need out? Well this is the event for you! What started out as a group of friends buying toys for some kids in need back in 2010, has quickly grown in to one of the biggest toy drives in Central Ohio. Last year we collected 1,247 toys, this year the goal is to collect 2,500!! The event starts out as a car meet with everyone going inside of Target to purchase toys, it then finishes up with a cruise out to the House of New Hope where we drop off the toys and they have snacks and drinks waiting for us. You are not required to participate in the cruise portion of the event, but you are more than welcome to do so.
