Not much on the agenda for this coming weekend. Most everything has been canceled. I've reached out to both the RoundTown Cruisers and Boy Scout Troop 382 to confirm the status of their events. As of this posting, neither organization has gotten back to me.
UPDATE: Contacted the president of the Roundtown Cruisers. Their cruise-in for this Friday has been canceled.
News and Notes:
This past weekend saw the return of a couple of "traditional" car events. I stopped by the Marysville Car Meet on Sunday. I estimate somewhere between 150 and 200 vehicles showed up during the afternoon. Here are some of the photos I took at the meet.
Big Dawg and the C-Town Cruisers hosted their first show of the season at the Point On Main Street Sports Bar & Grill. The show registered 78 cars, however, more than 100 cars turned out for the event. Best of Show went to Steve Beal and his 1951 Chevy Suburban.
On the way home from Marysville, I happened to drive by some members of the AMMO (All Modern Mopars of Ohio) who were having a "mini cruise-in" at the LaScala Restaurant on 161. The club members had just finished participating in a graduation cruise. I took a few minutes to stop and introduce myself.
Goodguy PPG Nations: With the 2020 Ohio State Fair officially canceled, I called Goodguys last week for an update on the status of the PPG Nationals. The woman I spoke to stated that as of this time the event is still on. She said contractually the Ohio Expo Center must give Goodguys 30 days notice if they cannot host the event at the Fairgrounds. I was told to check back again around June 10th for a more definitive answer on the status of the event.
