    2020 London Cobra Show

    Save the dates of June 25 – 27, 2020 for the 2020 London Cobra Show (LCS).

    This show was originally called the Double Venom Spring Fling (DVSF) and became known as the London Cobra Show in 2005.

    2020 will be a special year as it will be the 20th anniversary of the DVSF/ LCS.

    Look for an exciting LCS in 2020, so save the dates of June 25 – 27, 2020.

    See you in London and it is going to be fun!

    Hoping to make the 2020 LCS the first one I attend. There's a 0.0001% chance my Coupe will be driveable by then, but attending would still be pure awesome.

    Saving the dates now! Attended the Saturday portion as a spectator this past year. Working hard to have my new MKIV ready to drive there next year. It may still be in gel coat but wouldn’t miss it.

    I received word that the hotel for next year will be the Columbus Marriott Northwest on Blazer Parkway. It's about two miles from where we were last year. The note I received said to book early as there is another large car show in Columbus, the same weekend that we are there. Phone number is 614-791-1000 and the room rate for the cobra's is $119.00. Call and reserve your rooms sooner than later.

    Thanks for the info Scott! I called and reserved my room, mentioned the London Cobra Show and received the $119 Group rate (he said it was cheaper than the AAA discount and the Marriott member discount) also informed me of their 48hr cancelation policy. Sounds good! Thanks for working it out. How's the parking for trailers?

    I'm organizing the Gateway Cobra Club attending the event next year, hoping to get better than a dozen cars to join me. We're really looking forward to it, this will be my 4th trip and bringing some virgins with me (LCS virgins!!)
    Always good to see JeffK & Aaron!

    Look for our 2020 LCS website londoncobrashow.com to go live around the first of November. You may register for the show at that time.

    Derald:

    2020 LCS HOST HOTEL
    Columbus Marriott Northwest
    5605 Blazer Parkway, Dublin, OH 43017

    You may make your hotel reservation by calling the Columbus Marriott Northwest hotel at (614) 791-1000 or on-line by clicking going to https://www.marriott.com/event-reser...P&app=resvlink.

    When making your hotel reservation, please request the London Cobra Show nightly rate of $119.00 plus tax. This rate applies through June 2, 2020, after that date the special rate will no longer apply and the rate will be whatever the hotel has available. Please reserve your room early so that you will not be disappointed by having to pay a higher nightly rate.

    The nightly room rate includes the following:

    • Complimentary Parking.
    • Complimentary breakfast.
    • Complimentary Wi-Fi in the guest room.

    The special nightly rate will also be honored three (3) days prior to and three (3) days after the event, pending availability.

    Due to the lateness of the 2020 Father’s Day, our LCS dates happens to fall on the same weekend as the 38th Annual Dublin, OH Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show. The Arthritis Foundation show is an extremely large 3-day car show close to the same area of Dublin as our host hotel. Due to this, hotels in the Dublin area will be extremely hard to get the closer we get to our dates. It is highly recommended that you reserve your hotel room sooner than later.

    Serial #001 of the FFR 25th Anniversary Kits

    The build begins for the 2020 raffle car. The kit was picked up this weekend and the building process has begun.

    Dave Smith has promised to help us sell 25,000 tickets for this year's raffle car. This is a nice number and if this happens it will be around twice the best year we have ever had for ticket sales.

    Raffle tickets will be available on-line when our website goes live around the first of November.

    Counting on someone from the forum to be the lucky winner this year. Hope, hope!

    I just booked also. All 2 bed rooms are gone.

    This isn't looking like a viable choice for a single event hotel like last year if the rooms are all booked 9 months in advance and before the event registration has even begun however there are some others in the area that appear to be within walking distance of the Mariott:

    Drury Inn & Suites
    6170 Parkcenter Circle
    Dublin, OH 43017
    (614) 798-8802

    Hyatt Place Columbus/Dublin
    6161 Parkcenter Circle
    Dublin, OH 43017
    (614) 799-1913

    LaQuinta Inn by Wyndham Dublin
    6145 Parkcenter Circle
    Dublin, OH 43017
    (614) 792-8300

    Homewood Suites by Hilton Columbus-Dublin
    5300 Parkcenter Ave.
    Dublin, OH 43017
    (614) 791-8675

    I have no idea if OCC has spoken with them or negotiated rates.

    Good luck,
    Jeff

    Jeff, I wonder if the rooms in their 'special rate block' are gone but standard rate rooms may be available?? Just a guess because the 'sold out' 9 months prior doesn't seem right. Perhaps they can take more reservations, just not at the special rate. ( I seem to remember the standard rate was $159 per night versus the special Cobra Club rate of $119). Don't know. just a thought.

    Don't know Craig. Roy said that OCC blocked the same number of rooms as they did at the Crown Plaza this past June so I'm not sure what's up... Anyway, you and I are covered and worse case others can start filling the neighboring hotels if necessary. As you may have seen in the message I sent out to you and the rest of our usual band of misfits if we have to we'll just camp out under Frank's NAPA tents. That's pretty much where we usually are anyway

    Made reservations at Marriott yesterday, No problem with a King bed.

    FYI: The block of rooms is reserved for June 25-27, and to get the same rate for an early arrival, they had to do an over ride, so doing it online was not possible.

    2020 lcs host hotel

    Like last year with the Crowne Plaza, we may occasionally have a problem with the Marriott and a few reservations. If anyone does experience a problem in getting the Marriott reservation they would like, please contact us at [email protected] and let us see if we are able to solve the problem.

    For the 2020 LCS, we have the same number of rooms in our LCS room block out as last year. In fact, the Marriott has more total rooms overall than did the Crown Plaza. So far 40 individuals have reserved rooms at the Marriott.

    We have spent a lot of time an effort into finding another hotel that will allow everyone to stay in the same hotel and enjoy the comradery of all of our Cobra loving friends. We hope eveyone stays at the Marriott as it should work out much better than the Crown Plaza did for our 2019 LCS.

    The reason for the high number of reservations at this time is that the locals know how the Arthritis Foundation Classic Auto Show fills up the Dublin area hotels and have reserved their rooms early.

    That is why it was suggested that everyone on the forums book their rooms ASAP at (614) 791-1000 or on-line by clicking https://www.marriott.com/event-reser...P&app=resvlink.

    Funny, I just booked a 2 double bed room at the Marriott last night (9/21)! Must be like the commercial where everyone got the last one. I'm looking forward to getting to LCS next year.

    That would be nice, wouldn't it? We've talked a lot over the years, but never met.

That's pretty much where we usually are anyway

    Hey Jeff, just a heads up, looks like the St. Louis group is coming 'enmasse' . We'll try to be good this time.
    Come on Bob, know it's a long haul for you, but more than a couple of us from the Colorado trip will be there.
