August: The August meeting of the Quad Cities Winnies was held at Saylorville Lake, just north of Des Moines, IA on Aug. 13-17. With great weather, nice days, cool nights, eight coaches were in attendance, each on a very large, paved spot.
Wednesday was a great day as we had a tour of the capitol in the morning and Terrace Hill, the governor's home in the afternoon, followed by a potluck and campfire. Thursday it was off to the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines. You name it, we saw it, and enjoyed everything on a stick from eggs to pork chops. We also ran into the governor.
John and Connie brought their boat, so rides were available to all. Homemade ice cream was a Friday afternoon delight! The day ended with guess what—another campfire and Saturday most folks headed for home.
