Kings Island opens at 10 am. The best place to meet for coupon
exchange and to connect with everyone else is outside the main entrance at
the group sales booth. If we meet there at opening time, then we'll all save money. If
there is any reason that you won't be there at 10 am, then call me on
my cell phone from a phone booth and we can arrange to meet you at the
gate. (513) 505-6545
Disk (Frisbee) Golf
I played the Woodland Mound golf course and it is more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
