Watched the national news tonight and the flooding coming down the Missouri river could affect the Midwest All Truck Nationals and the Stovebolt Reunion.
I believe it was the 2011 or 2012 Reunion and show, that had to relocate to the Red-X field, due to the flood damage at the park.
Remember the lighting storm that blew up on Saturday? We all had to hang on to the steel awning poles to hold it from doing a Wizard of Oz fly off into Kansas.
This is just a heads up, Vicki and I are hoping that everything will be dried out and the show will be at the new remodeled park.
Mongo, Please keep us up to date on the outcome!

I was by there yesterday & it wasn't flooded yet. The forecast is that it will stay below flood stage in this area. We have some pretty good dikes in this area.
I'll be that way Saturday & have another look.

Thanks George!
I know it is still 6 months off from the Reunion and just want to let folks know it might be different this year.
Keep us up to date on what you see and hear.

Thanks
Don

The park is completely flooded Sat. morning. Its almost to the top of the picnic tables. This is early in the season so it probably will be cleaned up by the show time.
I said we have good dikes but the park is on the wrong side of them.

There is a "B" plan if the park is not ready. The show must go on. Jerry


Thank you,

A few years ago when this happened they had it at the lot next to Red X. It worked out real good.
