2022 Convention

AVA CONVENTION – Rich Mallicote, Convention Chairman

We are planning another great convention this year – to a state where we have not previously held a convention – IOWA.  Go ahead and save the date for August 4-7, 2022.  The ride this year will be on the Boone and Scenic Railroad, which is in Boone, Iowa.  Our hotel this year will be in Ames, Iowa – just a short drive from Boone, and home to Iowa State University.  The current plan is that our train ride will be a dinner ride on Saturday evening, August 6th.  More details on the hotel will follow in a later Fare Box.
