Update

This year the April Fools Rally returns to the Dayton area. Lodging at the Country Inn & Suites by Radisson, Dayton South, OH. Street address is 8277 Yankee St, Dayton, OH 45458. Phone: (937) 425-7400.

[Of course, you are free to stay at another place if you desire.]

Nothing planned for Friday other than check in at the motel, meet and greet around 6:00 pm and then dinner nearby.

Saturday will be laid back; only one short drive at this point, to a local museum and scenic area. Majority of time is set aside for hanging out and schmoozing with old and new friends.

More details as they develop. See you in April! :spots:

Head count

OK, folks, it's that time again. Need a head count on who is coming and how many cars (in case Dean trailers a few in....) :

Counting the Facebook replies, it looks like 10 cars and 17 people so far. :)

Saturday dinner

The Saturday dinner is scheduled for a local Italian restaurant. Pricing will be based on what people order, with beverages extra. It would be simpler if we stick to just a few menu options - I can post a view of the options and you can make your selection, or we can stick to the basic lasagna, pizza and spaghetti choices (with salads) if you like.

Let me know what you think.....
Most of the Facebook replies have been for basic Italian choices. :)

Weather forecast

Typical Ohio - winter will still be with us. Friday calls for temps in the 50s with some rain, Saturday is worse with temps in the mid-30s, chance of rain mixed with snow and Sunday looks like temps in the 40s, slight chance of rain. Plan accordingly. :(

Last update

Weather looks OK for Saturday, partly cloudy but no snow or rain in the forecast. Temps in the 40s.

Bring your FRS/GMRS radios if you have them. We'll be on channel 4 as usual.

Have a full gas tank when we start out.

This is a scenic drive, not a road race. We'll keep to the speed limits and other traffic laws.

Other folks have a right to the roads, so if they need to get into the caravan for some reason, please be courteous.

Bring your cameras; hopefully somebody can do some video along the drive.

See you Friday! :)

Sad to say but I will also not be attending the final April fools Rally. The airshow I attend in Florida was pushed back and both are now on the same weekend. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and wish I could be there.

Final! Darn, missed that. This is the first year that it coincides with my son’s spring break, but he also has a “test” on Sunday....
