Rain haunted our September 10 event. We had planned for a rain-date of the 18th, but it would be too complicated to drag everyone else in for a second time, let alone re-advertise the event. The local Leaf dealer was a bomb, not even bringing a vehicle to the event. I supplied a Leaf owned by a EAA of NWO member.
There were, perhaps, about sixty people at the four hour event, about fifteen ride-and-drives and a host of onlookers and passers-by. A short rain began before the event, and likely had an affect on the overall attendance. Rain subsided before noon and stayed sunny until about 2pm. After 2pm there were a few hit-miss showers that significantly slowed the foot traffic to the site.

We have a great selection of vehicles this year! Scheduled are vehicles from BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan, Tesla, and Toyota; what a great mix!
The rain-date will be September 18, and will be announced - if necessary - via email or phone. We are anticipating a strong turn-out and will strive to hold the event on schedule September 10.
Note there is road construction! However, access is still relatively easy. See direction choices below.
From south-bound I-475 - Exit at SR25 (before the south-bound I-75 interchange) and turn to south. Levis Commons Blvd. is on the right at the traffic light.
From south-bound I-75 - It is necessary to follow a detour that takes you further south to State Route 582. Exit at SR582 and go west a short distance on SR582 to the traffic light. The traffic light is the intersection of SR25. Turn to north and go a few miles to get you back to the Levis Commons Blvd. on the left.
From north-bound I-75 - It is necessary to exit at State Route 582 before reaching Perrysburg. Turn to west on SR582 to the traffic light, then right on SR25. SR25 will then take you north a few miles to the Levis Commons area. Levis Commons Blvd. will be on your left at a traffic light.
Come join us!
