Well....This week hasn't been too even for some of us. It's been a real roller coaster ride with our German daughter returning home, Woody Boater's news about Sylvia, the rain in the Midwest, etc.
At this time the water level on the Mississippi River and the lakes in the area is not good. The river front park in Muscatine, Iowa is under water with the show is in danger of being flooded out this year. The show is scheduled for next weekend. Table Rock Lake in south central Missouri is above flood stage. All ramps are closed and the Classic Cruisin' Weekend on the first weekend in June is in danger of being canceled. In St. Louis, we are on pins and needles as we watch the river level predictions for later in June. At this time the news is not too encouraging regarding our Grafton Harbor Classic Boat Show planned for the third weekend in June.
For the Grafton show, we are trying to come up with a contingency plan if at all possible. We still have some time to do so but the folks in Muscatine don't. So, if your plans include a trip to one of these events you may need to watch their web sites for possible changes and updates.
Muscatine, Iowa - That Was Then, This is Now
Table Rock Lake - Classic Crusin' Weekend
St. Louis, MO - Grafton Harbor Classic Boat Show
These ACBS Chapters will be doing everything in their power to have an event but must revert to Mother Nature's behavior, unfortunately. Check back with each one of these for the latest news. We are very hopeful that each of them will be able to carry our their plans as scheduled. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
