Date:  Sunday, September 25
Time:  Potluck at noon, drinks and table service provided.
Place:  Coon Hunter's Lodge, 7575 TR 131, Tiffin, OH

Directions:
From east or west, take US 224 to SR 53, just south of Tiffin.  If coming from the north, take turnpike or US 20 to Fremont interchange, which is SR 53, and follow that until you have gone through Tiffin and come to US 224.
Go South on SR 53 for five miles to County Road 6.  Look for the Camp Glen signs.  Turn left (east) on CR 6 and go 0.8 miles to Township Road 131.  This will be the second right.  Travel on TR 131 for 1.5 miles.  Sandusky River Coonhunters' Lodge is the big barn on the left.

Drive description:
This drive is on public roads through scenic farm lands along the Sandusky River.  Therefore, you will need the SMV (slow moving vehicle) sign as required by state law.  There are two routes marked:  4.5 miles or 6.5 miles.  Breeching or brakes are recommended because there are hills.
Plenty of parking on gravel or grass at the Coonhunter's Lodge.

The Annual Banquet will be held at the Plaza Inn, in Mt. Victory, Ohio on November 12th, 2011. Please watch your newsletter for the forms to complete. We hope to have a great turnout, so come and enjoy the food, fellowship and club festivities.

We have had a great season of driving so far this year. The locations have been awesome and for the most part, the weather has cooperated with us as well. We always have fun at the events, and the ones with the potlucks,,, well,,, they are always special.  We have some great cooks in the club.
 
As always, we extend an open invitation to our activities. Please contact us for additional information if you would like. We would be happy to answer any questions that you have. Come and check us out!
