Received a couple of responses from peeps at the Iowa Outdoors website....neither one has committed to coming to the gathering, but, one seems to be pretty likely....since he grew up in Rockford....wink.gif

He posted some extra info about the area.......

Here is some information on the campgrounds.

Other things that are available to do in the area.

Devonian Fossil site is a big draw. You can walk away with as many fossils that you want to pick up. Neat area to walk and hike in.
Good 9 hole public golf course on the west side of Rockford.
If you are into canoeing, plan a trip from Nora Springs to Rockford, on the Shell Rock
Little Brown Church in Nashua is just 17 miles from Rockford
7 miles east of Rockford is a steam tractor place and the original Hart Parr Tractor is on display there

another new iowa contest, may 23rd in Valley Junction, WDM IA, not that I plan to enter but maybe the central iowa people should get together for a few barley pops, its a low paying NON KCBS event but they say if they get a sponsor the meat will be included for the $90, not a bad way to get your feet wet, I ain't to that point yet though so maybe next year, or the year after that biggrin.gif

link here, pick the cooks info


If anyone don't like this here please move it, I was just thinking most people don't really care about these small regional contests and only the iowa or close people bother to look in this thread

I would love to be there, but, that is usually the weekend that the State AAU Baseball Tournament is. We are two time State Champs, I wouldn't want to miss another shot at a title. Have fun boys and girls!!! I would like to meet up with all of you sometime though.
