Iowa ride
« on: June 15, 2011, 09:43:39 am »
"Saturday, June 18, 2011 - All Iowa Meet-N-Greet at State Center.  A repeat of
last year's inaugural event, the  Meet-N-Greet's central location gives all Iowa
COGgers a chance to say hello.  Coinciding with the annual Rose Festival,
there's plenty to see and do in historic State Center when you get tired of the
COGgers.  Meet at high noon in front of the fire station (site for pie and ice
cream)."

Any Iowa boys headed to this?  I plan on attending

Woo-hoo we had three COG members attend.  Not bad except two of us rode together.

Great! A 50% increase over last year.  At this rate we'll have 4 1/2 people there next year.   ;)

Looking forward to the Gathering in the Grove, the next event I hope not to wimp out of!   :-[

As always, I'd like to hear from anyone who has an idea for an Iowa event.  Maybe a tech session?  I don't think we've had one yet.

Jerry you really missed out.  This was a big deal!!!  The kind folks from State Center amd surrounding areas had a parade to honor us :rotflmao: :chugbeer:, heck they even had a bunch of vendors there.  The vendors were not selling any bike stuff though, I thought that was a little odd :loco:
