The last month has been pretty hard on me, but still planning on being at the NTA at Lime on Thurs July 28. I am posting a map I found online of the fairgrounds in case anyone wants it prior to getting there.

Can anyone tell me if I can gain entrance at Gate 2 from Bowman Rd. or does everyone have to go through Main Gate off of SR 309 (Harding Rd)? I will be parking hopefully in the handicap area.

Hopefully well be able to see or meet some of you there.

Last Lima, 2009?, I brought a whole, LARGE smoked ham for the T man feed, and one of the volunteers came and got it, and me, in a golfcart.

Hopefully they can shuttle you and anyone else who needs it.

Hi DaveP... I was at the entire time at the 2009 Lima Extravaganza... I was a lot younger then with not many physical problems... now at 81, I have some troubles getting around, seeing and hearing. So if anyone talks to me they need to talk loudly. Have hearing aids but they don't much good.

Gate 2 will be for dealers only in the morning.
Main gate. There will be handicapped parking and apparently there will be golf cart rentals available. Plus there will be some guys that will take you to a spot with a cart if you need to.

I hadn't planned on going, esp with fuel costs, but wife mentioned going out to see her mom in Zanesville later this month.
Told her if it was that week, I'd go too, lol!

Be careful where you go in Lima. There are some bad parts of town.

Garry, I had told you origially that I was planning to come to Lima, but have since reconsidered. Your gonna have to do it without me! I'm sorry, was looking forward to spending time with you, but the expense is just too unbearable! Hope to catch you another time! Lee

Thanks for that tip Russ... looks like it would be more convenient...

Hey Lee... Sorry you won't be able to make... I know what you mean about the gas prices. I filled up yesterday and tank was a little above 1/4 tank and it cost me $68 to fill it up. I have never had to pay these kinds of prices for gas. I remember the carter years and the long lines for gas... I hope it don't come to that. Seems the difference between Carter and the the meat headed Zombie we have in there now is we have a communist in there now.

Will see how Lima goes... and the gas price are when Sept. get here might try to make it to Caldwell. It is a little closer and more direct route. I used to spend a lot of time in Noble county, so might be easier. I'm not sure how much of a turnout with vendors will be though.

Thank you everyone... for your help.

Garry-
