The meeting opened with a morning bus tour, “Crazy about Cars!” which covered Bowling Green’s automotive landscape and included a Corvette assembly plant tour. Two walking tours later the same day familiarized attendees with Bowling Green's downtown and the College Heights Historic District.
The all-day Saturday bus trip took us to Shaker Union Village, Bowling Green Historic Railpark, and Mammoth Cave.
Of course, we had our usual paper presentations and annual awards banquet. A good time was had by all!
