Mark your calendar for the fifth Meet in the Middle Tour with the Buckeye Miata Club from Columbus on Sunday, August 30th  We will be meeting them at the Mohican State Park about noon for a great picnic.  We expect about 50 cars total.  There will be hot dogs and hamburgers.  Everyone is asked to bring a small dish to share along with beverage of your choice (no alcohol).  There could be a small charge to be determined. But under $5.00 each. 

We will be meeting at the corner of Marks Rd and Rt 303 in Brunswick at the service plaza (click for map).  This is west of I-71 be a few miles.  This site gets us out of all the traffic lights.  We will depart at 9:30 am in two or three groups as there is no limit on cars.  It will be a nice relaxing two-hour drive to the state park.

 Directions if you driving direct:  Take Route 3 south out of Loudonville for 2.7 miles.  Turn right into the Mohican State Park entrance (click for map).  Before the park gate turn left and follow the road a short distance and you will see the pavilion. Even if you are not touring with us let us know you are coming.  Please respond by August 20 so we have time to buy the supplies.
