    I live right where IA, IL, and MO meet. I seen the IL and MO gatherings but they're both quite a trek for me. Was wondering if an IA one was in the works?

    Hi, you must be around the Keokuk area.
    I live in Quincy and would be interested in seeing some of the local BOC members get together.

    I'm actually a little more North than that. Right across from Burlington. I'd thought maybe we could get some people together and I read a post about hosting your own gathering but I didnt know if anyone would be interested or if anyone would be willing to help set it up?

    Are you talking about a Illinois gathering? I think she was trying to get information on a Iowa gathering. Anyway,if they get an Iowa gathering together,and it's not too far away I sure would be interested in attending.BTW,Angie,welcome to the BOC. I just live about 35 miles south of Burlington,in Montrose, Iowa.

    I am up for anything...it would be nice to get one set up where we can actually get some boats in the water close to the camp ground......I was at the one in Adel last year, it was a good time but it wasn't set up very well for fishing. We need a place where we all can bring out boats and have a nice place to camp and meet and still sneak off and do a little fishing in the mean time. Any thoughts

    Welcome to the BOC Angela! Good to have you on board. And you are correct, the Miss is a hard river act to follow.
    I'm from central IA, 15 miles east of Des Moines. So Skywalkers suggestion of Rock Creek sounds good. Nice size lake, state park area I believe.

    Angie,
    I agree with you,about the Mississippi River. I've been trying to think where there is a campground right on the river. I'll have to do some more research on the campgrounds,because I don't think you can beat the Mississippi for a body of water to fish around the state of Iowa.
