    2019 for me... and if held your customary weekend that would be June 6 till 9.
    That will make for a very nice "boot-start"... to the TN's MOA National the following week in June of 2019

    Thumbs up Great rally!

    Steve and the gang from the Pure Stodge Touring Club did a FANTASTIC job hosting the 42nd Iowa Rally this past weekend! We arrived until Friday afternoon and were greeted by smiling faces of attendees and the registration crew (this is the way everyone is greeted when you go to the Iowa rally). The Friday evening provided meal was a prime rib sandwich (guessing 12 oz or more and thick) with 2 sides and cookie desert. Excellently prepared, served medium, flavorful and tender...one of the best rally meals I've ever enjoyed! A great band followed supper and featured some really talented players.

    Saturday the fun continued with a hearty breakfast at the Ox Yoke in Amana followed by a ride to local dealers - Ned's in Riverside (serving free hot dogs, soda, and popcorn) and BMW Motorcycles Iowa City (serving free root beer floats). Thick Iowa pork fillets with 2 sides and desert was Saturday's supper...another excellent meal! And a great 3 piece acoustic band to round out the evening. Well almost...once it got dark we were alerted of a possible tornado and severe thunderstorm warning. Fortunately we were on the very southern edge of the storm, no tornado and no heavy winds. However we were treated to a lightening show of epic proportions as we watched it and the band from under cover of the pavilion. Better than 4th of July fireworks! Yes we had some rain but no big deal.

    The rally attendance was down this year, I'm guessing because many of us are going to Des Moines in July. As someone pointed out it's not the quantity of attendees, but, the quality of attendees. We've been attending the Iowa rally for years - first at Demster's farm, then Kolona, Marengo and now Middle Amana. This was truly a great rally and the host club should be very proud of a "job well done"! Thank you for all your hard work.

    I thought it might be a rainy rally but it worked out that we only had rain at night or early morning.
    We only had 20 miles or so of wet roads on Sunday morning, then by watching the weather radar on my Navigator we were able to work around the storms on the way home.
