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.
