I've always wanted to go, but have never been able to because of where I've lived at the time. But, I will be moving to Columbus in July so I plan on attending if that isn't too late. Does anyone know the date for this year?
It's all true, as far as I know.

I would not feel it worth a 16 hour round trip. 6 hour round trip with buddies yes.

I'm pretty sure its happening, but the dates have not yet been set. Check out the Ohio Waterfowl Association website for updates. Their 2014 winter meeting is Saturday 2/15.

They sell so much stuff...I'd almost guarantee its happening. A group of buddies and I get rowdy there every year. The past three years it's been on the third weekend of July.
