Last season, one of our most popular meets by far was the one held in the Arena District along with our partners from Nationwide. Some of our longtime friends remember our second and third seasons which were held in the Belmont Building parking lot near Huntington Park. It's only fitting that we return to the area for one of our great new annual events.
This year, we knew we would need to expand our parking options to accommodate as many more cars as possible. We ran out of space within 10-15 minutes the year before, so adding a large new parking section was vital. Luckily, we were able to close Nationwide Blvd between Neil Ave. and McFerson Commons park.
One of the best parts of the second year for this event was the diversity of the cars. We saw a first generation Camaro, a Hummer H1, a Ferrari 488 Spider, and a right-hand drive Mini. There really was something for everyone at this show.
Our sincere thanks to Nationwide for hosting this event. Their support makes our seasons possible, and we couldn't do it without them. Thanks also to Hurricane Jerry and Stormfront for their incredible performance in McFerson Commons. This local band was a perfect fit for our event!

We have received requests for apparel and logo items for many seasons. This year, we're introducing the first item, a stylish white FlexFit™ hat embroidered with our logo on the center. These fit anyone comfortably due to their elastic design and they look great as well.
Initially, we're only delivering hats at meets to eliminate shipping logistics and expenses. Eventually, we will add other colors, items, and begin shipping to any US address.
Orders received by August 31 will be delivered at the Byers Imports meet on September 9th.

The sixth annual Rally for The Ranch car show was an incredible experience. The weather was custom ordered, the cars looked magnificent, and the crowd was fantastic. Thank you to all of the car owners, spectators, visitors, volunteers, and Easton security and operations staff who made the day possible!
While Rally for The Ranch is not a Columbus Cars and Coffee event, we had a great number of our members participate this year, and we're honored to have a role in coordinating and managing the car show every year. Congratulations to The Buckeye Ranch for another great year!

The debut of our newest event, Exotics on Scioto Mile, was everything we hoped and planned for it to be. The weather was perfect, the turnout was great, the cars looked fantastic, and everything went smoothly.
We want to thank our sponsors, again, for making things like this possible. Their support enables us to dedicate time and resources to creating new ways to enjoy our passion for cars. There was a lot of behind-the-scenes work to create this evening, and we were able to take that on because of them. To Nationwide, Huntington Bank, Byers Imports, Diamond Cellar, ESOTERIC Fine Auto Finishing, and Honda, thank you for supporting our community!
Next, we couldn't have pulled this off without our friends at Milestone 229. Their willingness to open their patio to our car owners, create a custom menu, allow us to display table signage, and to be great hosts in general was unbelievable. We really appreciate their hospitality. Please make sure you remember Milestone 229 for your next fine dining experience, and let them know you appreciate their partnership!
Our volunteers, staff, the Columbus Division of Police, Willo Security, Creative Mobile Interiors, Piloti, and others also contributed to the success of this special evening. We appreciate their efforts greatly.
