A brief description/fact sheet will be included for each dam. Entry will be $10.00 and the winner takes half the proceeds and the other half goes to CFF. We will grab lunch along the way and hope to be finished early enough for participants to take part in "Guns N Cobras".

12:00 PM: Guns N Cobras: Cruise Leader: TBD
The Ohio Cobra Club has reserved the indoor range at the Blackwing Shooting Center in Delaware County for two hours. Gun enthusiasts will have an opportunity to fire hand guns and rifles on the indoor range with fellow Cobra drivers. The range is reserved form 2-4 pm so we plan to leave Hilliard around 12:00, stop for lunch at Quaker Steak and Lube, and arrive at the range around 1:30. The cost for the range is TBD and this fee will be divided between the shooters. There are seven lanes on the range so 14 shooters can easily share the range at once.
The range does have some ammo for range shooters but, as you know, ammo is hard to find these days so to be assured of having ammo to shoot you should bring your own.
There is also a first class outdoor shotgun range for those who are interested.
Please go to www.blackwingsc.com the check out their facility.
3:00 Friday afternoon meet at a Quaker Steak and Lube restaurant for a mini car show on the north side of Columbus (Polaris Exit off I-71).
