Ohio/Pennsylvania gather?

Our chosen date will be Sunday September 14TH 2008 at Pymatuning State Park in Andover, OH/Jamestown, PA area. I will reserve a pavilion and supply burgers, dogs, and drinks. The meet will not be canceled if it rains, so put your damn wipers back on! Alcohol is not permitted on the park land. After the meet, I thought about going to the Drive-In theater, but unfortunately, it closes 1st week of September.

If any Ohio/PA ecomodders are interested, we could have some fun before the weather gets bad. Maybe even some South Western New Yorkers or WV members could also join up.

Anyway, if any of you are interested, let's discuss it here.
Here is a map for some of you. You enter in the Ohio side at the Main Park entrance on Pymatuning Lake Road and follow the road through all the rental cabins all the way to the boat launch area. There is a pavilion there. If you end up at the stop sign back on Pymatuning Lake Road, you went too far.

Here is a hand drawn map...............

Look for the Main Park entrance which is south of the Main Beach and south of the Fishing Point on Pymatuning Lake Road. The main Park entrance will have a sign and here is are actual photos.........

It's hard to see the main entrance, but there are signs and it's just south of Gibbs Rd and North Lane.

Here are local campgrounds with rental cabins, campsites, RV spots, etc........

Lake Village Campgrounds

Pymatuning State Park

Bayshore Campgrounds

Complete list of campgrounds

If you need a Hotel, the closest place would be about 20 miles north of the park in Conneaut, Ohio right off of Interstate 90 on the RT 7 exit.

Days Inn Conneaut, Ohio

You should have no problem finding these locations and all telephone #'s are posted in the links so you can make your reservations.

We will meet at the pavilion anytime between 8:00AM and 9:00AM and hang till about 3:00PM. We will start doing lunch around 12:00 and afterward, I say we go on our "Official 1st Annual Great Lakes Ecomodder Fun Run" and leave the pavilion area at 3:00PM and head North to Conneaut, Ohio and go to another park on the lakeshore there where we can then part our ways from there after an hour or so. Of course, some of us may stay at the Lake Village Campgrounds and hang there after the run.

I think it would be awesome to have a line of Ecomodders driving north on RT 7 heading for the lake at 55MPH This would be about a 25 mile trip north.

I never expected such a large interest in this so if some of you would like to add to the fun by bringing more drinks, food, etc, it would be much appreciated. There is a close-by grocery store if you do not want to travel with food also.

Here are photos of the pavilion area on the lake................
