Representing FL

I'm definitely headed up to the Iowa gathering and if those are the dates nailed down, I'll request the time off work this week. I'll hopefully be flying out of the Sanford, FL airport on Allegiant Air, as they had some pretty good deals on flights to Iowa. I think Steve said to fly into Des Moines and put my thumb out and hitch a ride to the gathering site eek.gifPDT_Armataz_01_28.gif. Seriously, I'll probably rent a car so I can run once I see the belly-brigade in person! PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Just bumping the thread to get the message out far and wide.....EVERYBODY is welcome....if you're willing to make the trip, we'll make sure you have a great time....cool.gif

Any other Iowa boys willing to come have some fun?? Beaker? Allen? iadubber? Several other newer ones that I seem to have lost track of in the crash. Would love to see anybody and everybody!!

At one time we had quite a few Iowans and others that were interested in the gathering. Tip had mentioned that we need to get a head count pretty soon to get sites reserved. We have about 6 members so far that are in. It's a great time and a chance to meet some of the people that we type with every day.
