Sounds like fun. Say when and I'll try to make it.

What's easiest for most people? (Of course, we aren't known to take the easy way out amirite?!?!)

Was thinking Des Moines area or Ames.
Maybe BBQ or burgers.

Not this coming weekend but maybe next weekend weather permitting...

Just brainstorming atm.

I could be game for something next Sunday, the 22nd. Might have a buddy with a KZ as well. Maid Rites in Marshmellow Town would rock, but that might be a stretch for some.

Gonna do a covered Bridges trip this afternoon/evening.

What's everyone think about Hickory Park in Ames?

How does everyone feel about Sunday April 22nd, 4:30pm at Hickory Park?
Good food...plenty of room...easy to get to and pretty much right in the middle of most folks.

Let me know your thoughts. If there is enough interest, I will call ahead with a reservation but would need a rough headcount.

(More info on the covered Bridge thing...sort of informal but if anyone wants to tag along or meet up along the way, this is my tentative route.)
Covered Bridges Cedar, Hogback, Holliwell and Imes

I did part of that just the other day. It's a good ride. Wish I could have tagged along.
