    Hi all. We are going to have the 2nd annual S.E.Iowa (Keokuk) Powerhouse Bash. 1-2 Aug 2009. We have managed to reserve Hubingers Landing right on the Mighty Mississippi river, tents camp for free, campers pay for hookups. We are having a Fishing for BRAGGING rights tournament. Last years Big fish was 29.5 lbs Bluecat, caught by Eric White, a local boy. The furthest distance traveler was won by our very own Coyote and the lovely Raven. Tournament starts at 6am, and weigh in by 4pm.
    We will be having a fish fry directly after the weigh in. We had a few vendors last year and we are going to try and have more this year, and possibly a swap meet.
    contact info Andy--- 319-795-2420
    Gilbert/Vickie 660-754-1042
    Hope to see you there.

    Hi Jim, the beauty of this particular place is you can either put your boat in and go a mile south, or just cross the bridge and your in Mo. So yes you can use your Mo. license. Also Illinois and of course Iowa. Hope to see you. Later Andy

    Everything is going well here if it would only warm up a little. I am having withdrawals from not getting on the water. I have almost got next years wood all cut and home so I will be ready for the warmer weather and some fishing.

    Well if your going to tent camp, it's free, if you want a camper spot with hook ups it's going to cost you. Also if you want a motel room you'll probably want to make a reservation.
    Well Kenny I'm thinking the fire is out for now. They was getting a little bristly if you know what I meen. I told them you was off the fire detail this year, LOL and then they started to settle down.
    I'm going to post some Motel #'s after I talk with them, I'm trying to get a cut rate. The camper prices haven't been settled yet, I'll post them when I know also.
    So far this is starting to shape up. Later Andy

    Thanks Andy for the info on reservations. We'll probably bring our pull behind so I'll just wait to hear about the details. Also wondering if you or Andy could let me know if people needed to bring anything for the gathering? Thanks.:roll_eyes:

    There has been some talk amoung the Des Moines Bridge Brothers about coming down, hopefully when we get together to put together our gathering we can discuss this as well, always nice to meet new folks...

    Is a boat needed for the gathering? I don't think we have one to pull down... atleast I don't yet
