Just got unloaded from the Ohio Jamboree and wanted to say thanks for all who made the tour a lot of fun. Lots of good food, places to see, great ice cream, fun banquet and got to see many old friends.
Ben did another outstanding job with the auction.
Dave and the "doctor" were in the house and donated great stuff for the auction, along with many other items.
I want to thank all who helped me NOT bring home the tandem bike. That part of the auction was a lot of fun but I am happy it wasn't part of the load home. Too bad the Mrs. did not feel the same way.
Can't wait to do it next year in Gallipolis.
Tom,....nice post, but of course you realize what we're all looking for now, right? Like Royce says,...."If there's no pictures, it didn't happen!"
I hope someone took and will post some. I was too darn busy driving!
But with or without pictures, the memories are priceless.
This is the first tour I have ever been on and got a Champion X brass top spark plug, in the box. They are new ones but still a very nice goody bag item. Champion was very well represented here as the plant that makes the plugs is in Toledo. We also received a 25th Jamboree water glass made in Toledo at Libby Glass.
These folks did an outstanding job of promoting local products and what Toledo companies have done for the country as a top notch supplier of goods and services.
But driving through downtown Toledo on part of the tour shows a similar scene to Detroit, with several large, older manufacturing facilities shut down and idled. I hope the folks running the city don't follow the Detroit business (or lack there of) plan.
I took a few pics with my phone, and if there's a way to post from that, I'll put in a couple. It was a great tour, only my second one, as I'm still pretty new to this. Fantastic time, met lots of great folks, saw lots and lots of neat cars. I even would like to move to either Pemberville or Grand Rapids Ohio after seeing them in this tour.
The organizers did a super job. The tour book was great.
A very good tour. Thanks to all that worked so hard to make it so enjoyable, route signs etc;. Police directing & stopping traffic for us. Reminded me of the 2008 Richmond IN tour. The Hotel was great also plus the weather.
Its always a "trip" to see 130+ Model Ts all in the same place with common destinations....we had a fine time thanks to the good planning by our Hosts.As an Ohioan, the Jamboree each Labor Day provides a chance to see places in our great state kind of off the beaten path and at a slow pace! Good to see many friends and FORUM participants too. Paul
