(Rain date - Saturday, July 21, 2012 at 12 noon)


Plan would be to ride down Friday for the races. Maybe meet up for lunch, then head south... It's a 1.5 hour ride down from my place by highway, but figure we'll plot out a nice back road ride down... (open for suggestion)

Need to decide if we want to camp or motel it. Either way, once we get there, we either setup camp or stop in at our rooms.

Looks like there is plenty of both for lodging... I'll leave that option open to the group, but let's figure it out now so we can book something.




Costs:
General Admission: Adult $15.00

Pit Pass: Adult $20.00


Location:
Event Location: Fulton County Fairgrounds
8514 SR 108
Wauseon, Ohio 43567
Directions: Ohio Turnpike Exit 34 – Go mile north on State Route 108 to fairground entrance. (Northwestern, Ohio)

Well due to the limited interest...

I think I'll change this from an over night trip to a day trip.

We'll ride down friday for the races and ride back friday night.

So NOW who's in?

Spoke to my co-worker buddy and he's got a hand full of guys that he's inviting.

Meet up at the Citgo on Gibralter & I-75 @ 11am

Plan is to head south and stop somewhere to eat. Maybe Pete's Garage or something further off beaten path.
Continue south, possibly stop by Signature HD
Continue south to the Races.

Heats start at 430pm
Opening ceromonies start at 630pm

After which we'll head back north via highway (for speed and lack of wild life) and probably be home before midnight (best guess).

Who's in?

These old "bulk oil" barrels really took back Norm to when he was younger and worked at a gas station pumping gas and checking oil.
http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l311/cjclark69/Riding/Wauseon%202012/Wauseon056.jpg

This little device would measure the amount and stop the pumping when it hit the preset amount... pint, quart, 1/2 gal, gal....
