Missouri Valley Chapter News



Let me introduce myself.  I am Gary Park the new President of the Missouri Valley Chapter.  Barbara Weeks has decided to step down and I moved from Vice- President to President.  I would like to thank Barbara for serving the past 6-years as President and many other duties for the Chapter and ACA.

 My wife Barb and I live in Dallas Center, Iowa, just west of Des Moines.  Barb likes to Quilt, Sew and Cook.  I like to do Woodworking and Electro/mechanical repairs and I am active on the American Coach Technical Forum.  We enjoy traveling and meeting people on the road.  We travel in our 2006 Black and Gold American Eagle with the saying “Living the Dream on the Wings of an Eagle” on the back.  We feel totally Blessed that we can enjoy ourselves with such great people we meet along the way.

 Barb and I joined the Great Lakes Chapter and caravanned with them from Iowa to Granby. Got to know a great group of people and made the drive just that much more enjoyable.  A group of Missouri Valley members the Weeks, Stones, and Catrons caravanned a Southern route from Missouri to Granby.

 The Missouri Valley Chapter is excited to announce the addition of three new members.  Bob and Kathy Johnson, Joe and Julie Delgado, and David and Gail MacNeil.  Welcome Aboard!  

 The Granby Rally included a little friendly competition of Lawn Games among Chapters.  Missouri Valley took 3rdplace overall and individual Missouri Valley players took Top scores in Garbage Can Basketball and Lawn Bowling.  We celebrated our afternoon of fun at our evening Social Hour. The Granby Colorado Rally was Great.  To be parked up in the mountains surrounded by friends and a whole bunch of American Coaches was Awesome! We enjoyed good food, good friends, great weather and raised money for a good cause, the ACA Scholarship fund.


Keep Calm and Travel On!

 Gary Park

President, Missouri Valley
