L.E.A.K.O.I.L. (Lake Erie Area Kombi Owner’s Involvement League) is an informal organization of VW bus owners based primarily in Ohio and Michigan. We use Lake Erie as our geographic common denominator. We are an official chapter of the international bus group NEATO, (Northeast Association of Transporter Owners).

L.E.A.K.O.I.L. is an unincorporated association organized under Ohio law pursuant to Ohio Revised Code 1745.01. Our name and logo are registered with the Ohio Secretary of State.

Our website was established in February 2007. Our original website was archived in December 2008, but is still available for viewing here: http://www.odinpowersailors.com/leakoil/

We hold a monthly meeting on the Third Thursday of each month. Currently we are meeting at Basil’s Tavern & Grill, 360 W. Bridge St., Elyria, Ohio, (440) 322-9216 http://www.basilsgrillandtavern.com Interested VW bus owners are invited to join us between the hours of about 6pm and 9pm on meeting nights.

Our main club event of the year is “Kombis on Kelleys”, a 3 day campout held on Kelleys Island in Lake Erie at the 4-H Camp on Columbus Day weekend.
