    NE Ohio/Western PA 2016 Annual Chili Meet

    It has been a much easier winter so far, so it is time for some Opel dreaming and socializing! Come and join us for our annual Opel Chili Meet. It will be Saturday, February 27, 2016. The Meet is held here at our home in Tallmadge. Feel free to show up anytime after 9:00 a.m. Generally, people leave their Opels at home this time of year but, if it is as nice as some of our other days this winter and you are one of the courageous, feel free to drive yours.

    Come and join us for a day of relaxing, Opel talk, troubleshooting and, of course, eating. If you have any parts to swap, pictures or videos to share, etc. feel free to bring them.

    If you can, please let us know if you plan to attend so I know whether to make 2 or 3 pots of chili.

    For those of you from afar, if you wish to join us and need overnight accommodations, just let us know. We have a spare bedroom or two. If you need directions or phone numbers, PM us and we will send them to you.

    Vickie & Allen Gage

      At this time of year I don't think it is called being "stuck" in Arizona. Enjoy your warm weather. You will be missed.

      Close to me, but alas, so far away. My brood and I will be in Disney that week. But I would hope for pictures as I will be checking in to see how the chili is!

      Hey, should I bring the muscle, brains, or just an empty stomach??

      If anyone is interested I will bring a couple of the Cal Custom luggage racks that I want to get rid of.

      I was able to make my reservations for Days Inn, after a small glitch. Guy I talked to Saturday night told me to call back on Monday morning so the manager could do an overbook. WTF?? So I just called back Sunday and spoke to someone else who was able to help.

      See everyone soon.

      Craig:

      Including us, there were 8 Opelers. We had pretty much the regular crew:

      Lee from Parma, OH
      Steve Daniels from Ashtabula, OH
      Brad Dennis from Cincinnati, OH
      David Eyles from Cincinnati, OH
      Don McClean from Detroit, MI
      Ron Mattern from Erie, PA

      Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) we were having such a good time talking Opels that nobody remembered to take any pictures. Ah, well there is always next year.
