This years theme, PROMOTE THE HOBBY so bring a friend and/or club members

Always lots of food, meet other fine GRRers and your wives can shop in historic downtown Nebraska City.

Sept 27th and 28th  Sat/Sunday  many folks come on Friday the 26th so they can set up and have dinner at the Depot lounge at the old CB&Q station.

BTW,,Its always the 4th weekend in Sept.

We are looking at a different place for Sat night banquet. The old place (new owner) tried to jack up the price the day before we all showed up.

The new place is in an older building but NO STAIRS. Parking lot 1/2 block east. room for 100 people and better prices. Has PA, and stage.

Motels are.

 Hey Marty,  I was told last fall by one of our club members, Rodney, that I needed to go up there. He told me that I wouldn't have any other choice but to go with him. So, there might be a chance I'll make it up there this year.

Marty,

Have you ever call the Arbor Lied Lodge to see what they would charge for a banquet?  We've had several there and they have a great buffet.  I'm sure it's a bit more expensive, but it might not be too bad and it's a really cool place to have an event.  Just a thought.

Marty,
It's been too long since I met you and Carrie at the rusty boat years ago, so I guess I need to hit the road for Cornhusker country this fall. Save me a seat at the banquet.

Darn,
I know this year is out. With my sister in law and my best friend both getting married this year I'll not have the
vacation time left to take or the funds left to travel.

Ok so I'll shoot for our 8th anniversary. Wife & I were married on Sept 29th in 2001.
