When I put a feeler out there a couple of weeks ago about an event in the Great Plains in 2017, several people responded positively without even knowing any details. Thanks for all of the responses. Your responses have encouraged me to plan an event for our LOA friends.
It is now official. The First Annual Great Plains Gathering will be Sept. 21-24, 2017. The dog days of summer should be over, the cold of winter will not have started, and if Mother Nature cooperates we will see some of the first colors of fall. It is, according to some, the most beautiful time of year in Nebraska. If you are interested in attending, mark your calendars.
I am still not quite sure of the location. as I have 1 possible central Nebraska and 2 possible eastern Nebraska locations. I am visiting each site to determine which will be the best place for the event. I will decide on a location in the next couple of weeks to give people an opportunity to make reservations early and ensure we can be clustered together.
I am excited about getting people together from all over, and offer an opportunity for people to see the beauty of an area of the country that many have not yet visited.
I will post more details as they come available.
