Join us for a weekend of fun on Brian's favorite roads! This is your chance to run the famous OH 555/Triple Nickel!
In keeping with the informality of previous Marietta Madness weekends, this year's event will allow you to participate as much as you'd like with the group or venture off on your own with your favorite navigator - it's up to you!
We'll be leaving from the McDonalds at I-70 exit 96 (Mt Comfort) on the eastside of Indy early Friday morning, June 9th at 9AM for a 9.30 departure. Lunch grab and gas on the SE side of Columbus before hitting the curves towards Marietta. Choose your own lodging in Marietta.
There is not a headquarter hotel, per se. There are plenty of hotel choices for all budgets, from the super-clean and inexpensive Microtel Inn (a personal favorite) to full feature Hotels with all the amenities (Fairfield Inn, Comfort Suites, Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, etc.). So make your reservations now for June 9 and 0nd avoid possible rate increases. Make your hotel reservations ASAP!
the gathering and start point for Saturday's group drive and riverside picnic will be in front of the Fairfield Inn & Suites - 200 Cherry Tree Ln, Marietta, OH 45750. Dinners are on your own, but we inevitably meet up somewhere popular, like Marietta Brewing Co, Boathouse BBQ, Harmers Tavern, etc. Really depends on the size and 'character' of the group attending that year and plans are made on the fly. Sunday, again on your own, but the same applies - return routes are discussed, usually involving one more run south to north from Little Hocking to Zanesville on 555, the Triple Nickel, and those interested gathering a bit later for the group drive back west.
Sunday is yours to explore Marietta and it's surrounding roads on your own. Pick your departure time or make plans with other members for the trek back to Indy. We would highly suggest a return ride from Little Hocking, Ohio on the Ohio River north to Zanesville on the famous Triple Nickel and perhaps beyond - directions will be available!
For those that might not have known Brian, he was an active member of the club and very much loved zoomin' in his orange Miata.
