We are about a month away from the 32nd Annual Check the Oil Show and Auction in Columbus, Ohio!

The host hotel and all exhibitor spaces are sold out, it should be a great show! There is a Ramada Inn at the same exit that should still have rooms available, phone number is 614-890-8111.

Auction to be held Saturday June 23, 2018 at 10:00 am EST. Online bidding available at www.proxibid.com/checktheoil

See you there!

A great show and one I certainly won't miss. Too bad there isn't more vendor space.

...this is the first year at this location - but if this hotel is anything like the last one, they'll have a restaurant...here's a screen shot of the surrounding area (hotel is the red teardrop; restaurants are the orange teardrops)...

Another hotel option besides the Ramada is Aloft Columbus Westerville at 32 Heatherdown Dr, Westerville OH 43081 and their phone number is 614-899-6560. Its a bit further away but a nice facility.

Are sellers going to be out in the parking lot all day Saturday, even though the auction is going on and everything tends to end early? I have to work all day Friday, and I'm reluctant to bring a fist full of cash on Saturday if half of everyone has already packed up. I went to CTO last year and it rained like heck that day and most sellers were packed up. It sucked.
