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 10th. The route to Marietta is yet undetermined, but it will certainly include the famous OH 555/Triple Nickel after we take a break for lunch and gas in the Columbus area.
While the "Big Saturday Drive" will begin from the Fairfield Inn on Saturday morning, 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 10 and 11 and avoid possible rate increases. Make your hotel reservations ASAP!
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!
Don't miss your opportunity to participate in this year's premier driving event and experience the Miata playgrounds that are the roads of SE Ohio. Register for the event now on the Club's website or click below. Remember to add your navigator (guest).
More details will be posted about the specific routes and exact departure time as we get closer to the event. If you can't make it for the Friday rally, consider coming over to Marietta at your leisure.
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.
Join us for an informal "Miatas on Main" meet n' greet the last Monday of every month, beginning March through October. Park in the north lot, Big Woods Restaurant, 1002 Main Street, Speedway, IN!
Come out for good food, drinks and lot's of Miata talk!
