***UPDATED...Official OH2K9 Announcement, June 25th-28th 2009, Columbus Ohio***
OH2K9 is Coming!!
Mark your calendars...
UPDATED DATE...there was some scheduling/planning conflicts, so it was changed to a summer kick off meet
June 25th-28th, 2009 - Columbus, OH
This is a HUGE IS meet that draws people from all over the country and even canada, and has been going on for many years. It's a fantastic way to meet other owners, see other IS's, and get ideas or parts for your own car. It's a definite "must attend" meet, and will be the most fun car enthusiast get together you ever attend.
RE-Book your room to the new date if you already booked one...you can email or call
UPDATED WITH HOTEL INFO:
The hotel set aside 45 rooms for us to reserve at 79.99/night. There are various room types (1 king, 2 Queens, etc), so the earlier you call, the better chance you have of getting the room type you want. They hold the rooms until June, then they release them to anyone. This is a high demand weekend, and there is a family reunion going on at the same time....so don't procrastinate on booking your room.
Here's the basic plan in case you haven't been to this meet in the past.
