This event follows the increasingly-popular Put-in-Bay Road Race Reunion annual event. More information and separate registration can be found at Participation during the week at PIB is not necessary to attend the Ohio Chapter GOF, they are completely separate events.


However, for those who plan to attend PIB race week, September 19-24, several club members have already booked rooms on the island at the (relatively new) Victory Station Hotel, 489 Catawba Ave. They were offering a club rate of $100/night, but we have heard this property is now sold out. However, the same family owns another island hotel, so you can still CALL 419-285-0120 (do not attempt to book via the Web). Ask for the manager, Kelly, to get a "special" rate at the sister property. Hotel’s cancellation policy is 14 days prior (Note: If you have to cancel and don't want to pay a $35 cancellation fee, they can roll your reservation over to Race Week next year). In any case, a deposit is required to reserve your room on the island, which is the first night's lodging charge, plus tax. Remember, this is the hotel only for those who will be on the island for race week, it is not how you are to reserve your room at South Beach Resort for the GOF—those details are above ^^^. (Notice I say Sept. 19—Kim and I are going up for the old car parade on the island, held by the residents every Sunday afternoon—it’s a hoot, so come up early, if you can.)
