River has started to go down according to this link.
https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=eax&gage=kcdm7&view=1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1

But, Mongo told us last year that the park would be going thru a makeover this past winter.
So with all the flooding, that probably did not happen.
The Red X field worked out a number of years ago and it could work out again.

Hopefully Mongo will see this and update us.

Hey guys there are a couple backup locations in the file. We are working out which is going to work out the best at this point and getting the details together and finalized.
As soon as I know for sure what the plan is I'll post it up. It's a Rain or Shine show so The show will go on!.

Don, is all your stuff safe from the flood waters? I work at the hangar just off Hwy 94, and we've been having to take a boat to work for a couple of weeks now. I'd like to bring my newest family member ( 'Mater Jr.) to the Stovebolt Reunion this year, so I'm waiting to hear of the alternate plan.

Welcome to the garage and there are several Stovebolters around mid Missouri.
We are about 6 miles from 94 and on plenty of high ground.

The Reunion is a good time and info will be shared as we get it.
We also need to start thinking about T-Shirts for the event soon and get a design made up.
John has done them in the past and maybe he can do one this year. (Hint, Hint)

Kevin, went thru Jeff City yesterday and the airport looks to be a muddy mess when the water went down!
Are you wearing gum boots to work?

It's muddy, and once the water stagnates, it's going to be stinky and buggy. I'm soooo looking forward to it. The city has started to clean the runways that are now accessible, but it's going to be a while before the airport is operational again.

PM me sometime when you're going to be passing by, and I'll drive 'Mater Jr. to work so you can see it.
