The Cincinnati graticule is at latitude 39, longitude -84. The graticule is 68.91 miles long (North-to-South) and ranges from 53.0 miles wide (East-to-West) at its northern boundary to 53.77 miles wide at its southern boundary. Thus, the area of this graticule is approximately 3,678.8 square miles.
It includes the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Metropolitan areas as well as most of the Dayton, Ohio Metropolitan Area and the schools University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, Miami University, Thomas More College, College of Mt. St. Joseph, Cincinnati State, University of Dayton, Wright State University, Earlham College, and Sinclair Community College. Although it is almost entirely
golf courses land, the Ohio River and numerous tributaries as well as the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are also located here, possibly limiting the number of available geohashes.

Saturday Meetup Locations
On the one hand, the official coordinates are in the Art Van Atta Park, 2 miles SW of the I-70/I-75 interchange, which is an awesome place.
On the other hand Saturday the 11th is International TableTop Day, so you should consider going to your "Friendly Local Games Store".
(or make it to both?)
Right smack in Dayton, just up the road from Ghostlight Coffee.
(well maybe next time)
Less than 2 miles from my house
Today is International Tabletop Day so go to your local games store, there's probably stuff goin' on.
Time to try again.
Another easy to get to spot, on the Butler Tech campus in Hamilton.
(as usual:) "Anyone interested?"
An easy-to-get-close-to location at the south end of Springboro.
Looks like it is the "Bus Facility" by Springboro High School & Dennis Elementary.
I think we might not be allowed to the exact calculated spot, and I don't know where a good place to sit together and play games would be, but at least we can easily get to the general area.
In the parking lot at the (defunct) movie theater behind the Alex-Bell shopping center in Centerville. 40% chance of rain.
I'll be bringing Candy Land and my family. I'm also hoping to deflower the Lima graticule on my first geohashing expedition.
