FOHBC Syracuse National Bottle Show 2021

With the anticipation that the country’s response to the pandemic will continue to be positive and that travel restrictions will continue to ease, the Ohio Bottle Club hopes that many readers of this issue of the Ohio Swirl will satisfy their desires to get back to a little normalcy by strongly considering participating in this summer’s FOHBC National Show being held in Syracuse, NY in early August.  Besides the show, the Finger Lakes area is beautiful…with lots to see and do for a relaxing getaway!  Also, if the show is a “go”, it will be at least another four years before a major FOHBC show will return to the Northeast area!  For this to materialize, it is imperative that prospective dealers submit their table contracts to the show hosts ASAP, as they must have a minimum commitment of sales table by June!  If the show cannot be held due to pandemic restrictions, full refunds will be issued, and there will also be no penalty imposed by the host hotel for cancelled room reservations. Rick

OBC News

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart to announce the passing of Clark Wideman this past Wednesday. Clark was an OBC member and very generously donated to the OBC cider and donuts October meeting. For me, Clark was best remembered for the Columbus Bottle Show. He used his motorized wheel chair to impact the show. Our prayers to Clarke’s family and friends.

December Swirl to be mailed on Monday.

Got an email from Rojer Moody that the February Columbus Show will be canceled.

Saw on the FOHBC website and Facebook that the Baltimore Bottle Show is re-scheduled to September 25-26, 2021.
