    Not sure how many of you have heard but, the BoD at the Iola Car & Military Show voted Tuesday. That the 2016 Gun & Military Show was there last show! 

    Some of the reasons given were the low attendance and cost of the Insurance!

    But there has been a ray of bright light in this, a very strong rumor has it. That a group from Wausau, WI area will pick up the torch and put on the show. Same weekend 11 and 12 August (Vehicle Show and Military Swap Meet Only), for the first year. Something more official should be coming forth after Monday!

    The 2017 Schedule is coming together slowly. If anyone has any suggestions, please submit them to me and we'll get them out there for everyone. When giving me submissions, please include all information (Point of Contact, Date, Time, Location, Website, Type of Event, Entry Rescritions, Insurance Requirements and Fees). Ok website and contact info will mostly work, but you get the idea, of what goes into these events! 

    The idea is to get the information out to you, to make plans for your summer's events. There are going to be events, that I will need to know will be attending, long before the event happens. This is due, that the Event host needs to make plans as well, this is why, last minute attendance, makes things difficult!

    Thanks for your time. Let's have a fun and safe session.

    2016 September 17 – Boscobel Veterans Memorial Car Show (1st Annual)

    This was basically a car show set up in South Western Wisconsin in the town of Boscobel. The Local VFW Post got a couple of acres of land donated for a Veterans Memorial Park. The town already has a De-Commission M60 Tank on display a few blocks north of the location (they may or may not move to this location). There is a picture of the Model of the Monument they wish to build in the photo album on our Face Book Wall.

    For a first time turn out, there was over 80 Vehicles and 2 HMVs. A former Red Arrow M715 and my CUCV II. 

    2016 September 18 – Open Streets at Penn Fest

    Another Car Show in Richfield, Minnesota. This was a big block party that ran down Penn Ave in Richfield from the Cross Town (Hwy 62) south to 73rd. We set up in front of CVS just north of 66th and Penn.

    Louie had his MB and MBT plus his wife Gloria (the Supervisor) drove the Minnietonka Jeep; Verne drove his GPW and I with the CUCV II. We had a very prime spot and setup.

    2016 September 24 – Cruise for the Troops

    This was originally an invite from the CAF and they were hoping for more people to help from their own organization, plus maybe some more from ours. They cancelled out on Face Book announcement on Wednesday of the week of the show. So I wasn’t going to go either. But then I saw the that Don Gunderson had sign up. So dug out the CUCV and went. But Don rode a Motorcycle and was going on the ride! The CAF didn’t set that part up for us or they were not aware of it. So I was on display, talked to a few people gave out a couple pamphlets.

    2016 October 01 – Prior Lake Maneuvers / Pumpkin Run

    Mike Dyer and John Bizal got together and plan out a full day of Convoy thru the countryside and BBQ at the end of it. We had 22 HMVs in the Convoy that started in Prior Lake, visited an Apple Orchard in Northfield, a Brewery in Montgomery, a Winery near New Prague, a Pumpkin Patch on the way back to Prior Lake and ended up at the Bizal Ranch for a great BBQ.

    Photos can be found on Face Book.
