About this Event

Mark those calendars, save the date and all those other things you do to remember the fun things in life, that's right, it's The Marietta Memorial Drive 2021, June 17-20. A lighthearted romp through southern Ohio, lots of great friends and outstanding food, and amazingly fun to drive roads. Yeah, Route 26 and Route 555 will still be in the mix, but we've added new roads to up your driving fun quotient Enough with an intro, here's the real reason for all of this wordiness.

This meet is very special to many of us as it combines two of the best thing about S2000 ownership: Friendship: Maury was a friend to everyone he met. I'd like to think that feeling will continued throughout life's twists and turns and will help to bring a bit of light to everyone The Drive: The roads of southern Ohio are full of twisties and elevation changes; perfect for the S2000. We will drive through back country areas with rivers, forests, farms and covered bridges and small town America. The drive starts with the drive to lunch at Pike 40 in Morristown. We'll be driving some new to us roads to get you prepared for the afternoon's fun. That fun is Route 26 from Morristown to Marietta. This is a spectacular rollercoaster of a road and you get to see it from a different perspective. The drive takes about 4 hours. If you like a bit of challenge for your car and yourselfl,Route 26 will not disappoint.

The Tentative Itinerary:

Thursday: The Early Arrival relaxation day: Hang out, relax, take life easy. Prepare for the upcoming fun. There will probably be a totally disorganized dinner around 6:00pm somewhere that you can join in or you can just stay in and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Friday: 6:00 pm - Dinner out: Not really a formal part of the meet but it seems to have become a tradition. We'll meet in the hotel lobby at 5:45 pm for the drive to a surprise restaurant. Good food is even better with great company.

Saturday: 9:00 am - The Maury Memorial Run. There will be at least two groups for the drive, a somewhat spirited group and a more sedate group.  Select the group you'd like to be in and come along to lunch at Pike 40 in Morristown, OH.  Relax, check the scenery, maybe hang out for a bit and then get ready for the return drive down Route 26.  You will arrive at the Hampton Inn in plenty of time to get ready for the Saturday night dinner. 

Saturday 6:00 pm - Buckley House for Dinner. An amazing restaurant with generous portions, a large selection of great food and an amazing wine list.  We'll meet in the lobby at 5:30 pm for the drive to the restaurant.  Make sure you bring your appetite.  Mike, one of my favorite servers will be there to help, insult, and in general take csre of us.  It's worth going just to hang out with him.

Sunday: Tthe day for loading the car, looking back on all the fun you've had, the great conversations, the new friends you've made and then heading home.  I hope you've enjoyed yourself and that we'll see you for Tomcatt 2022 - The Rt. 555 Drive.  Until then, please drive carefully on your way home.
