Dayton Spring meet March 31, 2018

Location of meet: We will meet here at the regal cinemas parking lot. They have a parking lot that is further away from the theater that I have yet to see occupied even on the busiest nights.

Directions:
From EAST: If you're coming from the columbus area, the quickest route will be to take I70 West until you reach I675. Take that south to exit 17 at North Fairfield Rd. You will want to turn left onto north fairfield road. From here you will go through 4 lights, and at the 5th (Jared's Jewelers on the corner) turn right toward the mall. Make an immediate left onto Fairfield Commons Drive, then pass Red Robin and Fox and Hound pub and grill on the left, taking the first left after the Fox and Hound. From there you will be in the lot

From WEST: Directions are the same except you'll be taking I70 East, durhur :D

From NORTH: I'd imagine I75 will be the quickest way down from Toledo. Once to Dayton, take I70 East for a few miles, then get on I675 South. From here directions are the same.

From SOUTH: I75 North will be your best coice. Once to Dayton get on I675 North. The only difference here will be to take exit 17 and turn RIGHT onto North Fairfield Dr. From here you'll go through 3 lights, and the 4th (Jared's on the corner) Will be your turn into the mall

For some reason the marker on google maps is not correct for the theater, so follow my directions (if you don't have GPS), and the worst case scenario would be that you would just drive on the ring around the mall and you'd eventually find the theater. When closer to the meet I'll PM people my number if they would like the extra security.

FOOD!: We will hop over (could even walk) to Red Robin (although hopping over to Ihop would be funnier). You'll pass by it driving to the meet location, so I'll save myself posting the link. I figure we'll eat whenever the group gets hungry, or if you like we can set a specific time.

Everyone will get to see my car after not being bathed for almost a year. Considering the rust issue that will be addressed the Monday after the meet, I am not going to wash the car before driving to Dayton. I am desperately trying to keep moisture away from the affected areas so this will explain the dirty car.

You also weren’t at Carlisle, which would’ve caught you up!

For everyone else, here’s the address for the Red Robin, just to get a rough idea of where we will be:

I'm supposed to fly in to Ohio on the 31st and I have a standby flight. There's a 50% chance I won't make it. If it is humanly possible for me to make it, I will do my best. Otherwise, I hope you guys have fun and I will continue to plan a trip to Carlisle in the next year or two.

Even if you made it in on the 31st, unless it is early in the AM, it would take a lot to get situated with the family, etc, and make it over to the meet.

But best of luck, if it is possible. Hopefully the weather holds up for you folks!

If it wasn't a 4.5 hour round trip, being the holiday weekend, on top of the time spent there, I would probably be more likely to attend. :(

I may have to work that Friday but almost positive Saturday is a nonproduction day so I should be there. Fingers crossed. The compass needs to stretch it's legs for once.

Whelp, the wife and my youngest child are suffering from the worst form of flu we've ever seen. My two girls and I also had it for a few days, but we managed to pull through. I've burned up too much of my PTO at work, so we had to cancel our trip. You guys have fun and maybe I'll make it over there at some point in the coming year.

That sucks to hear. The wife, my 2year old and I just had the flu not even 2 weeks ago. Lasted a week before any of us was feeling better. Luckily our 6 month old didn't get it.

Hope you all get to feeling better.

Thanks, man. I had my 11-month old baby boy in the hospital for IV fluids over the weekend because he couldn't keep anything down. It's been rough.

Best wishes on a full recovery. Nasty stuff.

It has to suck for your wife too, missing out on seeing her parents. And them not seeing their grand kids...

I second the previous posts. There have been serious flu problems where I work (two employees hospitalized so far) so I understand.

There was no snow here actually, not even any rain. The forecast for Saturday looks pretty good so far. Let's hope it stays that way.
