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........

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................

i'd consider it. Just depends on the date and location

I'd consider it also.....the date is the biggie for me.

How about Sunday August 17th at Andover, Ohio. It's only about 50 miles for me, but if we choose this location, I can have everything taken care of and supply the BBQ and refreshments and host the meet myself and be there from morning till night. If we choose another location, that would be up to whoever wants to do it.

Sunday is a good day because most people are off work and Saturdays are kinda busy for most. This also give those who live farther away a chance to leave early enough so they can get set for work the next day unless they want to go see a movie or 2 at the Drive-In theater.

If August is too soon, we can postpone till September 14th which would be after the Summer Season and easier for those who have a busy August.

I'll be in New York from the 15th to 18th..

Johnny Mullet 07-19-2008 07:15 AM

September 14TH would seem more plausible to me. If we get about 10 people interested, I say we go for it.

It would be really cool to start regional meetings...

That seems good.....I'll check my calendar at work on Monday/Tuesday..

That's a good idea, I'll have to check my work schedule. I was out that way earlier in the year for a car parts/swap meet I think it was in Canfield. My father always goes for the cheap car parts.
Maybe if this shows enough interest their cold be some type of car show and parts-o-rama. But, let's see how the meet and greet goes.

Johnny Mullet 07-21-2008 11:46 AM

I updated the original post with the set date and a couple maps. Hope to get enough people interested. This will just be a casual meet/gather to get to meet some of our ecomodder friends and their rides.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 04:09 PM.
