We invite you to attend our reunion at Hueston Woods State Lodge and State Park on May 17 and 18, 2013. The Hueston Woods Lodge is located at 5201 Lodge Road, College Corner, Ohio 45003. The phone number for the Lodge is 513-664-3500 or 888-711-4725 or www.huestonwoodslodge.com. if you wish to rent a tentSmile camping space or space for an RV, you can contact the Hueston Woods State Park at 866-644-6727 or www.ohiostateparks.org. This gives you the opportunity to chose your level of accommondations and manage your budget. If you chose the Lodge, be sure to mention if you have an AAA, AARP or Golden Buckeye Card as discounts are available. The Lodge offers both rooms and separate cottages. The Lodge offers all the amenities you would expect at a fine motel, including dining room service, lounge/bar, indoor/outdoor pools, sauna, tennis, and more.

The Hueston Woods State Park offers camping, a marina with boat rentals, nature center, pioneer farm museum, golf course, horseback riding, and over 20 miles of roads to explore with no fear of being run over by freeway traffic. The setting is rustic, but the park is easily accessible from major highways.

We have listened to suggestions made by attendees at the reunions held at Kings Island Resort. We will have demonstrations of working Willys Jeeps with PTO attachments. John Ittle, who has a splendid collection of working Willys Jeeps, owns farmland adjacent to the park. He will be arranging group trips to his farm with plowing demonstrations and other off-road activities. You can chose the activities in which you wish to participate.

The Lodge has offered the use of a grassy knoll behind the Lodge for displaying our Jeeps. This area presents a breathtaking view of the lake. If Mother Nature does not permit this, we have access to a paved parking lot surrounded by beautiful forest.

So, it's all about choice. You can chose your level of accommondations; you can chose your level of activity; you can chose to attend the Willys Jeep Reunion at Hueston Woods Lodge and State Park. We hope to see you there! Smile

We are committed to this event and have a signed contract with the Lodge in place. We urge you to make your reservations with the Lodge or the Park soon. This will assist us in our planning for the event.

Just in case some of you are confused by a similar event advertised on the same day, yes there are two shows featuring Willys and/or Jeeps on the same date. The entity known as the Midwest Willys Jeep Reunion, Inc. is the same core group who managed the show in Mason, Ohio for the last four years. This group took over the management of the show at the direct request of Dennis Caraway, who impressed the desire to give up the active management of the show, turn it over to someone else to run, and turn his attention to the development of a Willys Museum. The show in Mason was successful and profitable, and detailed records and accounting were kept of all financial matters.
