    I need everyone that would be interesteed in coming to a gathering in the Riverfront in KEOKUK to pipe up,1 weekend ...Here is the deal WE have camping access 1block from the boat ramp and on the river.If I get enough intrest I am gonna take it to the city council and tourismbeauro so we can reserve the area..I want to see though if there is enough intrest befor I commit and it might be next year before this happens so please speak up and feel free to P/M me.Right now this is just a Idea and I want to know if I put this work in and try to do it IS THERE ENOUGH INTREST AND I would appreciate anyones input because I will not be able to make this happen without you.

    I am in east Central Iowa. What is wrong with me? Wrong deodorant? You gonna limit to Southeastern Iowans? What, you got bigger corn fed women than we do? You not gonna invite the rest of us? Jeez Kenny, I only thought they were prejudiced in New York.

    To be any further SE in Iowa than Keokuk you'd have to be an amphibian (sp). LOL

    Kenny, George and I will be there for sure, wouldn't miss it. Oh MY Gosh you and the John together! I would be afraid to see what will happen. Will there be cabins, hotel or motels close by? Thanks for all of the hard work that will go into this.

    Sharon there are several hotels in town and the town is capable of hosting a few hundred easiley.I am working on the idea of the r/v camping site at the riverfront,the boat ramp is 3/4 block away if that.The Southside Boatclub is right next door and a pontential helper because I have friends in low places.:wink:

    Don't want to take over this thread.
    I've got a couple of fishing friends that might be interested.
    Wish I knew my schedule.
    hope you can get this off the ground.

    good luck
