Meskwaki PowWow


As many of you already know, the August rally, scheduled for the Outback RV Park at Tama has been moved to the Meskwaki Casino Campground.  For a better rally (ask Chuck for details), the hosts moved it to the casino.  A block of 25 spaces has been set aside for our unit.  However, with only 49 total spaces and vendors and other visitors for the powwow also wanting spaces and since spots are reserved on a First Come – First Served basis, it is IMPERATIVE that we all get our reservations made as quickly as possible; like yesterday.  The nightly cost is $15 plus tax and a reservation will assure that you have a space.  Nothing will be charged against your credit card until arrival, so the card just guarantees you will have a space when you get there.  The spaces are level and paved with electricity only.  Water and a dump station are available.  Call 800-728-4263 and tell them you are part of the Iowa Airstream Group.  A space will be assigned to you and you will find out what that is when you check in at the campground office.  The rally dates are still the same; August 10-13.  If you need to cancel due to illness, accident, etc., simply call the same number and cancel your reservation.  No charges will be made.  This is a Buddy Rally, so, if you are calling for your reservation, you will either have to register your buddy or you will have to get them to make their reservation very quickly, too.  More information and directions to the campground will be forthcoming in a future newsletter.  However, since camping spaces are limited and filling rapidly, you need to make your reservation immediately.
