Default Possible cookout/park meet in Columbus 5/17

Hi. E30Fest was planned for 5/17, but it may not officially happen on this date due to family illness of the organizer.

Anyone here up for an informal BMW meet at a metro park? I was thinking Battelle Darby Creek park on the west side would be good. Plenty of back roads in the area.

Dang it, May is an uber-busy racing month. 11th is BMC Autox and 18th is Corvette-Troy.

Renee, can it be near/in/around some building in case of rain ? Or, we can make it a mod party

They do have covered shelters, but they are not enclosed.

We can always make the back up plan an install day at your house as long as you are comfortable giving out your address and phone #. This could potentially be a sizable gathering since DJ posted the date early in the year.

I will check out the park this weekend to find an exact spot. I have been there with the Subaru group and it worked out well.

No problem. I'm rather particular about having people to my house.

Well, some of the 4cyl BMWs still have a timing belt.

We are planning on having the cook out. If you can bring chips, hot dogs, buns, plates, etc. So far, we only have drinks and cups.

Post here if you are going to come and I will add it to the E30 site so you don't have to join another board.

In the case of rain, the meet will be at Roosters at 4650 West Broad (one light west of 270).

Open to all BMWs.
Some other makes may stop by, but I don't want to be taken over by another group. Since this is a metro park, keep it civil within the park. The guys last year didn't.

Let me know what you guys are bringing. Need to make sure someone brings charcoal, fluid, tongs and plates.

I checked out the spot, from Rt 40/Broad street, you will see a sign to turn left (south) on Battelle Darby Creek. You will travel a few miles down the road, turn right at the first entrance after the curve to the left (reflectors on the right side of the road).

Drive to the first (non-reserved) area on the right side. There are grills, covered seating, bathrooms, large open areas and swing sets/play area for kids. Enough parking for 200 cars easy.

Sorry, I'll be flying around the Putnam Park track that weekend.
Maybe next time.
