Regarding restaurants in the area, I got the following PM from AirForums member H2K:

South on I-75 at the Anna exit is a Wendy's.

If you want a meeting room I would suggest HiMarks in Sidney. Applebee's, Wendy's, China Garden Buffet, Culver's, a Mexican Rest., and Wild Wings are all at the St. Rt. 47 exit in Sidney.

Got this on my calendar. If I can successfully defend those dates, I'll come. I am greatly relieved to know as Carol says, that "Animals are allowed inside the lounge." If they'll treat me that nice, maybe I will find some repairs / service I need done!

I've been there several times, but have never gotten the factory tour. I think that would be interesting.

Frisbe and playing ball, should pose no problems to find ample space within a short walking distance.
Since you mention kids...

For those that don't know us and that might be contemplating coming to NOVA-fest and have kids, we'll be there with Parker and Mason. Parker will still be 3 at the time and Mason will be 3 weeks short of 2 years old. They are fine to be in the AS watching a DVD (we can do that on 120V or 12V) or riding the bikes / trikes around. Yeah, they hang on mom & dad some too, but that's the way it is. If we go to a restaurant, especially if there's a place where we can plug in the portable DVD player and take some toys; they're set for a couple hours.

We'll have mom & dad's bikes too as long as it's not too frigid so I'm sure we'll make good use of the Airstream Inc. property for riding around on Sat. afternoon.

As one of the biologically old kids I would have fun sticking around the rally site. We have folders, we might bring 'em if it isn't too cold. But I suppose we should decide where or what we do or go. ???

We have two dogs and a cat that travel with us, no grandchildren this trip.

Gee Lou now I want to move the date up and go sledding after we make that snowman!

Ryan they treat everybody nice, people too, it's the Mothership. haha

I guess a time and place for lunch or dinner would be good to know. Even the factory tour which day, etc. I don't think they do tours on the weekend.

Gary said that there was a possibility of them giving us a tour on Fri. if there was enough interest. Maybe Gary can clarify the tour time/day.

What I worked out with them was - if we have a large enough group of 20 or so - they would give us our own group tour at 10 am on Friday.

Otherwise... there is the regular daily weekday tour at 2:00 on Friday but the factory has stopped working for half day Friday? Is that correct? It is a lot quieter and sometimes Don gives a longer more interactive tour when the factory workers are not there so it is still a really good tour and no one gets in anyone else's way. I like the new Airstreams part best, but then I have taken the tour so many times that's probably why.

Yes, there is the regular 2:00 tour. We discussed that it usually has several tourees if you will. This is why we worked out doing our own tour if the group justifies it.

How do I find the Rally Calendar? I've looked but can't find it.

rally calendar

Tom, there is a blue menu bar at the top of this page that has white lettered tabs. Put your cursor on the one that says Rally Calendar and click. It should take you to the calendars. From there you find the month you are looking for, then you can click on the event that you are seeking. From there you will be able to sign up on the page to RSVP. (Yes, No, or maybe) There will be a text block where you can type a small comment too.

Maybe Tom doesn't remember meeting me at Homecoming and showing me his pictures for ASL.
