GMT Nation,

We're setting up a little gathering on May 12th at a park in Middle Amana, Iowa.

Right now the folks looking to attend Middle Amana May Meet (MAMM):
1. D-V_Envoy
2. High Voltage
3. Voymom

We just want to do a little meet & greet and toss some burgers/dogs or your choice of meat on the grill.

I'm wanting to do "MAMM" because I'm heading to Europe and would love to meet other TB and Voy owners in the U.S. prior to leaving.
Voymom and High Voltage also enjoy meeting new folks and talking about our beloved vehicles. So we put our heads together in a few conversations and have come up with the date and location. (We'll be calling the park very soon to reserve it.) We realize Mother's day is that Sunday, but we're not expecting to impact your plans if you just have a short drive. Plus hey, stay around and visit the Amana Colonies, it's pretty neat place!

We'll post the show time and map once we reserve the park along with other details and answer your questions.
It'll be a BYOM and BYOB.
I do plan on buying some bags of charcoal for the fire.

We want to make this a simple little meet/greet and an opportunity to hang out.

We know the Massive Mich Meet is the next weekend, just consider this a little warm up. :smile:

So all you SE Iowa and Western Illi folks come over to Middle Amana and join us! :cool:

Sounds great!! I will either be baking a cake or baking cadbury egg cupcakes as it will be my hubby's b-day that Sunday(Mothers day). I can also bring burger buns or chips/snacks. If anything else is needed please let me know!!

If I was just a bit closer and did not have the trip the following weekend I would try to make it. Just a bit too much in fuel cost to do both.

Completely understand and realize that.
I would be in Mich as well if not for having to have Voy on the East Coast May 18th to be sent overseas with me. :smile:
Enjoy the meet in Mich.

Since Drew won't be able to make it and or set up any plans I need to know if the date and location is okay for everyone as I will go ahead and take over setting things up. If you would like to change the date or location please let me know and we can find something that works for everyone. I'm okay either way it goes as long as it is on a Saturday and weather is nice.

You can either post here or PM me, it doesn't matter :biggrin:

Count me in for this one. I haven't been to meet since another one in Amana probably going on two years ago now. I remember setting my engine on fire with degreaser the morning before that meet. I'll try to avoid that this time around.

Also, let me know if you need any help with anything.

My "binge drinking to cure cancer" got cancelled, so I might be able to come down. Going to depend on what the wifey wants to do for mother's day. Since her idea of what we are going to do always trumps mine, it might be a tough sell. We will see.

Okay guys, just keep me posted. I will be contacting Jeff here in the next few days to see exactly where we are going to meet up as the time is getting nearer. I will have all my kiddos with me during the meet, so feel free to bring your little ones as well. I have 4 tagging along.

Hello!!!!! What's the deal here....should I get excited or just forget it

Well If I could get a hold of Jeff I would have more information.

Or

We can just do it in my neck of the woods? As I haven't lived here long enough to find my way around Cedar Rapids/Amana.

I will text Jeff again tomorrow and see if I can get a hold of him. I know he has been going through a lot and has a ton of stuff going on so it may not be the best time for him. So if anyone wants to chime in and let me know if Southeast Iowa is an okay place to have it at, and who can all come. I can have a place set up in 24 hours.

Cool park with climbing trails and camping/swimming. 280 lakes is a big park outside of davenport with paddleboats, swimming, camping, great fishing. Three good size lakes.

With 4 children and one with special needs that would be way out of my league. And since it's the day before mother's day I can't get grandma to watch the little ones. I need something like a outdoor park where we can BBQ and my hoodlums can run wild, because they will run wild whether it's inside or outside lol

Wild cat den or 280 lakes would be good for them. I dont know the amana area eather. Trying to think of a place close to everyone. Your all about the same from here.

Yeah we have a huge park here with plenty of fishing, kids playground, covered BBQ pavilions, and lots of room for them to run around in.

My kids can't swim yet as they are all to young. Only my 8yr old can swim so 280 lakes is just about asking for one of mine to get into a problematic situation. I have 1 child I wouldn't worry to much about, but my 3yr old is ADHD and developmental delays, and my 6yr old is Autistic. Then I have a 16 month old who doesn't know any better. If there is just a park with plenty of room for all the kids to run around and play ball without worrying about water I'd be more comfortable. I still can't get a hold of Jeff, so I'm trying to figure something out.

I don't know anything about Amana or Cedar Rapids or Iowa City lol We don't get out much so I need a bit of help trying to figure out where to have this thing. I have been to davenport once, where I drove in circles for about 3 hours, got out to smoke and got chased by a rottweiler, so Davenport doesn't like me at all :biggrin:
