Default Well First of All It Ain't in Warren No More

Funny thing happened on the way to planning the meet.............................. Dan Skivolocke picked out a beautiful meet location in Warren, Ohio called the Avalon it was a great place for our meet with ample parking, lots to do and the Packard Museum nearby. Unfortunately Dan got ill, when we went back to take the next step, the place had changed hands, they wanted us to park our cars at a farm they own about a mile down the road and oh, the jacked up the price another hundred a night,,,,,,,,NO THANK YOU!

So then we looked at Oglebay, West Virginia at their resort. Lots of things to do, beautiful location, prices were decent but they wanted us to park in a lot down a steep hill that would not have worked for our older members and members with mobility issues, back to the drawing board.

Then I remembered Walt McCall asked me a few years ago why we don't do a meet in Loudonville, Ohio, the home of Flxible. I looked into the Mohican State Lodge at Perrysville, Ohio. Perrysville is situated between Loudonville and Mansfield. There is so much to do in this area and it is going to be unlike any International Meet you ever attended. As a matter of fact I feel there is something for everyone in this area and at the lodge itself. In the coming weeks I will be telling you all the things to do in the area and official meet activities planned.

The actual meet starts Tuesday June 29th,2021 but the lodge has agreed to give us the discounted pricing Sunday 6/27 through Sunday July 4th. In today's installment, I am going to tell you about the lodge itself. Nestled in the hills of Perrysville overlooking Pleasant Hill Lake, the lodge has 96 guest rooms. There are four parking lots on the site all close together and all level with the lodge. The rustic lodge has a gift shop, conference and banquet rooms and a spectacular restaurant and bar. We spent the weekend here this weekend and the food was great! Breakfast HAD NOT ONE BUT TWO KINDS OF UNLIMITED SCRAMBLED EGGS AND NEVER, I SAID NEVER RAN OUT! And every meal was great. There is a large indoor pool, hot tub and sauna and a large outdoor pool. Activities include tennis, volleyball, shuffleboard, game room,fire pits and a cemented walking trail around the facility. The view from the restaurant overlooks the rolling hills and Pleasant Hill Lake.
Getting to the lodge is a pleasant drive. Once you arrive off the interstate, it is likely you will not drive on a four lane highway again for the week. It is all well paved two lane roads that surround the area and the drive is leisurely. While there, if our events are not interesting to you,you can wander off on your own and rent a boat of varying sizes from the Pleasant Hill Marina, go fishing, or go golfing at the Pleasant Hill Golf Course or enjoy the Lodge's amenities, if your brave enough you can take on the zip line that goes across the area..
In upcoming posts I will talk about what we are planning on doing in nearby Mansfield, Loudonville, and trips to Berlin, Sugarcreek and Dover. I think you will find you may want to come early and stay late.

Default Mansfield

One of our locations will be Mansfield. In Mansfield there is a fire museum that is being considered, a large carousel in downtown that is under roof that is beautiful, a drive in movie theater that Sara is looking into as a possible venue but the definite is a event at the Mansfield Reformatory that Dwayne Brooks is helping out as our point man. The Reformatory is a architectural work of art that holds tours. The grounds make an excellent location to display our cars. The reformatory has been the site for several feature films including scenes in Air Force One and Escape but is best known as the featured site in The Shawshank Redemption. The drive from the resort to the city is about a 13 mile trip.

Default It's Official

The Mohican State Lodge became the official site of the 2021 International Meet with the contract signed last night. The Lodge is offering rooms at the discounted rate of $115.00 per night starting June 27th thru the Fourth of July. The actual dates of the meet are June 29th-July 3 so the other days are bonus days if you want to arrive early and enjoy the activities the area offers or just soak in the beauty and solace or stay over a day and enjoy the fourth of July fireworks as Monday the 5th will be the government holiday.
To reserve your room you must call 419-938-5411. When booking you MUST specify you are with The Professional Car Society to receive the discounted rate. I suggest you reserve early as there are only 96 rooms in this hotel and the other hotels are 20 minutes away. BOOK NOW!

Default Loudonville

A little over ten minutes from the host lodge is the Village of Loudonville, the home of Flxible. If you own a Flxible this meet is a must attend event. The factory still stands and houses a golf ball refurbishing plant. It is a charming little town with friendly people and a vibrant Main Street that houses an ice cream parlor, and what looks to be a fine dining restaurant. A beautiful town green that will house a antique fair on the Fourth of July. Right off the green is the Snyder Lindsay Funeral Home which looks like a nice looking place. Not sure if it is still there but Lindsay's did have a mid sixties Flxible combo. I am looking into if it is still there and will reach out to them and invite them to the meet. Also in the town is the Mohican River. The Mohican is a calm shallow river. If you want a relaxing afternoon there is a canoe livery there that you can leisurely paddle down river, and then get shuttled back up to town.
To the East of town is the Ugly Bunny Winery. We had lunch there along with a sampling of some very good wine. More to come, book your reservations now, and remember to tell them you are with the Professional Car Society.
