Smile 2017 Midwest smart Rally

Is this Heaven? No, it's a smart car rally in Iowa! Again!

The planning stage has started with the location announced at the smart Car Nationals in Deadwood, though the date has changed.

The 2017 Midwest smart Rally will be held on June 22-25 in Iowa’s oldest city of Dubuque, the “Masterpiece on the Mississippi.”

The host motel is the Holiday Inn located in downtown Dubuque. Additional lodging information will be posted later.

Planned events include a scenic cruise on the Great River Road, a tour of the National Mississippi River Museum, a visit to Antique Archeology and the Field of Dreams, sightseeing in Galena, and a riverboat dinner cruise.

Here is a tentative schedule:
Thursday afternoon meet and greet
Thursday evening dinner
Friday scenic drive on the Great River Road with stops at Antique Archeology and Galena, Illinois
Friday evening dinner
Saturday morning tour of the National Mississippi River Museum
Saturday afternoon scenic drive to the Field of Dreams
Saturday evening riverboat dinner cruise
Sunday brunch (optional)

Other attractions include the Fenelon Place Elevator and Lock and Dam #11 on the Mississippi River. For more information on Dubuque, check out the Dubuque Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Registration will start early 2017. Please post on the Participation Poll thread if you plan on attending.

See you in Dubuque!

A place in Antique Archeology is appropriate for most of the participants!

Isn't that the home base of "The Pickers"?

I feel 10 years older after my surgery last month, 3 weeks in the hospital is hell!

"The Pickers" rarely show up at the stores except to tape an episode of their program. Mike Wolfe lives near Nashville, so he spends more time at the Nashville store than here in Iowa.

I'm working out the logistics of visiting the Iowa store during the rally. There is limited parking and the store is not that big. I would like to meet "The Pickers" when we are there. We'll see.

Need to get there early. Barry and I stopped by a couple of years ago and there was already a crowd half an hour before it opened.
