The Toledo Blade’s Larry P. Vellequette reported on Jeep’s upcoming 70th birthday. The Blade, possibly spurred by Mr. Vellequette, suggested marking the milestone by throwing a party on the spot where it was born.

Our club (NorthwestOhioCrawlers) have attempted to contact someone at Jeep, at the Blade in general, and Mr. Vellequette directly, as well as the City of Toledo, to see if we could lend a hand in making this happen, but, as of yet, we have received no reply from anyone.
It's like this idea was just quietly swept under the rug and forgotten.

I hope this is not the case and they are working, albeit quietly, on a plan.

I believe this to be a fantastic idea for all involved! The city would benefit from the increased revenue, Jeep would benefit from more urban exposure to the capability of their products, and the enthusiasts, like myself, would have a much closer place to go wheel on any given weekend than two hours drive.

Our club is STILL ready to lend a hand in any way that we possibly can!

There are 3 courses, but I don't think they will be open to the public.
