    We are going to schedule a meeting in Columbus to get the club going, registered, etc. A primary goal is going to be website developement.

    Chime in if you have any input on location dates. Right now it is looking like after the 4rth of July at Griggs reservour park.

    There has been some discussion on new developments for the club to increase membership and active participation. Currently, all toyota trucks and land cruisers are welcome and this will not change. The club is for non-off road types and off roaders.

    Actually, all makes are welcome, but if it is not part toyota then the membership will be 1 grand a year. :)

    Stay tuned.

    Hey Karl:

    Thanks for the head's up. As long as it is after the 4th, I should be able to make it down...

    Sounds good that we are getting things organized. Thanks for the effort.

    Best regards.

    Count me in Karl. Like I said on the phone "Let's Wheel!"

    FYI, I'm going to the CMCC. Got a hall pass last minute from Rosa. :beer:

    Are you doing weekend meetings? Is there a distance limit?

    Hey Van Meter, can you post here good weekend dates for you after the 4rth of July please.

    Butch,

    I don't know how ROTR is doing, but I was thinking that we could make one club with a killer website and message board for wheeling trips and such. There could be an officer from each area.

    Please chime in with comments.

    Karl

    Karl,

    Saturday the 9th | Saturday the 16th--are both available for me. We can meet at one of the Shelter houses, I'll grill :cool: and we can make it a meeting/social?

    I have the webspace available for quite a large site. Also have an unused copy of VBulletin waiting to be used for the messageboard.

    Do you have a domain in mind or will one need to be registered? I'll bring the yota owners to this meeting that I'm running with this weekend. So there's 4 more not on this board but in Central Ohio.

    Mark

    If it's one of those weekends, I can indeed make it.

    Of course, that is if you guys don't mind some NE Ohio folks! :flipoff2:

    I can be there most anytime, except for CMCC. July is wide open for me.

    If Jason is bringing some money/food, you know I'll be there! :)

    Not a good cook here, but I can easily pick up beverages of you' all's choice...

    Are we a #6 crowd or are we (de)caffinated?

    Looking forward to meeting some of you all...

    I love to cook and grill, so I'll take care of those duties, and since I'm the noob to the group, it only makes sense ;)

    Getting a shelter house down at the park would be cake, and we could always go over the damn to the rock garden and do some wheelin' :bounce2:

    Coming in From Cleveland

    If anyone up north wants to head down in tandem I will plan on making the trip from Cleveland. Keep in mind that I will traveling at FJ40 speeds so it could be slow for someone in an 80 or 100. I will head down 271 to 71. Thanks I will keep checking for an exact date and location. I will need some directions when the time comes, I do know Columbus a bit being an OSU grad.

    How does Saturday July 9th at 12:00 pm at the Shelter House at Griggs Reservoir. Since Karl is going on Vacation, I'll work on maps to post here.

    I'll supply the burgers and brats for a cookout if everyone coming can bring a bag of chips, side dish or the like.

    If we can get a date set before Karl leaves, that might be better for everyone.?

    Watcha think?

    I'll be happy to bring some side dishes...those I can do!

    Hey Matt--

    I'll be happy to cruise down with ya if you want. I'm in an 80, but I generally drive 40 speeds ;)

    I can meet you anywhere between Cleveland and where 271 hits 71...

    Drop me a PM and we can talk about specifics...

    I'll post some directions, maps and all that Sunday/Monday for everyone. Griggs reservoir is just NorthWest of Columbus in the "burbs". Pretty easy to get to, close to 270 from the North.

    I drive my Trekker on the highway also and understand yota cruising times. I would allow for 3 hours to and from with a stop and all that.

    Plenty of food and I'll put together a banner everyone can see with signs pointing to the shelter house.

    I have a small rock garden about 100 yards long by the river I play on if anyone wants to put a tire on anything. It will be right there below the damn.

    I've walked around on the rocks below the dam. Never occurred to me to wheel there. Suddenly meetings at Griggs are a lot more interesting!
