Thumbs up 2014 Midwest smart Rally

June 6-8, 2014 Amana, Iowa

Located just north of Interstate 80 in east central Iowa, the seven villages of the Amana Colonies are home to Whirlpool (Amana Refrigeration), Amana Furniture & Clock Shop, Amana Woolen Mills, and Millstream Brewing Company.

The surrounding area has plenty of motels, campgrounds, parks, shopping, and food.

Planned events include a "family style" dinner, winery/brewery tour, scenic cruise, picnic, bluegrass concert, and car show.

The host motel is the Guest House Motel located in Amana, IA.

Lodging information can be found here.

Here is a link to the Amana Colonies for more information.

Here is a tentative schedule:

Friday afternoon meet and greet
Friday evening family style dinner
Saturday mid-morning scenic drive
Saturday noon picnic and R/C races
Saturday afternoon bluegrass concert
Saturday late-afternoon brewery tour
Sunday morning car show
Sunday brunch at Phat Daddy's (awesome brunch)

What say you smart fanatics?

Cold beer, great food, and live entertainment. Is this Heaven? No, it's a smart car rally in Iowa!

OK, you're on the National/Regional forum. Got the calendar marked!

PS - will there be a "host" motel?

I just checked, it's 322 miles from here to Amana, I could make that on about 3/4 tank easy, especially if I took my time. Unless I pull my trailer with the camping gear, then it might take more. Chumly
