The rain, snow, cold temperatures, and salt/brine spray on some of the roads put a real damper on the opening weekend. I had planned to attend four events but cold temperatures, summer tires, and salt don't make a very good combination. I did receive a report that 40 hardy souls turned out for the Rod Knockers show in Marion, Ohio. If you made it to Big Dawg's show at Buffalo Wings and Rings, let me know in the comment section. Hopefully this weekend starts to act more like spring.
I found Just a few events on the schedule for the second full weekend of April.
UPDATE: See Gil Myers' entry under the Recent Comments section for info on the Buffalo Wings and Rings show.
