    I'm going. Someone please post info about the poker run: When/where to sign up, how long a drive, the basic route...Is there a web link?
    Thanks in advance.

    PS - Columbus has some bad neighborhoods immediately adjacent to the Fairgrounds. 11th avenue, 17th avenue...that area is bad with crime. Be sure to remove all valuables from your cars and keep an eye on them whenever possible, if they are parked outside of the show.

    Not to hijack the thread but earlier some one posted a warning about Dublin Granville Road area (Near I-71) being a sh*thole, you are right. There have been four murders in that area in a little over a month and a half. The hotels there are constantly being raided by the cops for drugs, etc. I would not recommend anyone stay in that area.

    Morse Road and I-71, one exit south, is getting bad as well but they just haven't had the murders.
     
  20. just curious does the areas around the fairgrounds still have power? with the heavy duty windstorms that went through there i had heard on the local news some areas in columbus wouldnt get thier power back until atleast the 8th

    any body live close enough to know?

    I've stayed in the Dublin granville area for the last 8 years and have never had any problems. Sometimes its shady at night, but you get that in any metro area. Stuff gets stolen out here in the sticks too. :D

    We stay at the best western right by it. There are always people out at all hours. Seems to keep trouble away for the most part.
