Keep up the good work in preparing for the rally in Cincinnati. I didn't hear anyone from Myrtle Beach volunteer to have it there.Hey moscoter,
I'm on the committee to host you. I hope you will allow me to address your concerns.
But first.....I'm really sorry you've had those experiences here in Ohio. I'm a born n bred Buckeye from Ohio. I've live here my whole life except for a 5 yr stint in Minnesota n a 12 yr stint in Georgia then returned here to live out the rest of my life. I wouldn't want to live any where else. I'm sure you must feel the same about where you live maybe?
I had run ins in both those states. With GA being the worst. In that experience, back in the 90's, I allowed an elderly black couple ahead of me at the grocery store. What I didn't know at the time was the local kkk leader was behind me. He laid in to me about "those people know their place n so on" I'm very outspoken by nature. So I replied back hotly explaining that if you peal their skin back we are all alike. Conversation went on only accelerating. I ended with God created us in His image n we were all created equal, color doesn't matter. He replied you'll get yours. Now at the time I drove a very flashy Olds 442. Let's just say that I had several odd happening after that. (Just for knowledge the cashier told me after he left in a huff leaving his cart of groceries, who he was n I shouldn't have done that. N she shouldn't have told me, but please be careful, things are different down here.)
Now I could have let that sour me on that state n other thing from my other experiences in other states. Much like you feel about us here in Ohio. Point is I didn't let that happen. I've been back in both those states.
The hotel is not as opulent as our accommodations in Branson.
The hotel is clean, nice appearance and most importantly has lots of outside cameras to monitor the parking lots. It is monitored n will have runs through by local police departments. Security was a concern when picking this place. Point of interest we are not in a depressed area of the city. This hotel allows us to rent the entire building for just our group. Providing we get all our fanatics to come. Otherwise it will open up to other guests. I believe we can fill it. Wouldn't that be nice to know whoever you meet in hallway was a fellow fanatic!
The city is old. A trip back to our past, our history of how the rest of the western states opened up. We have blended our countries history with fun things to do. Also allowing time just to kick back n relax with fellow fanatics. We are even tring to plan an event so all the ladies can get to know each other n build friendships. Not just following hubby on his interests. Sorry if I offend the ladies it's not my intent n I do want to encourage them to do things with their husbands. We have all the usual events, included events of historical significance n that are Fun.
I've rambled on but hope you'll think it over n give us a chance to show you Ohio's southern charm in the Queen City. I'm not even from Cincinnati, I live in another area of the state. I am looking forward to being a host n showing you one area of our beautiful state.
Please reconsider n come join us for the 2021 International Rally.
