THe Midwest Riverboat Buffs Weekend in LeClaire Iowa is fast approaching. We invite anyone interested in the activities to join us. Friday June 3 I'll be having an open house here with jambalaya and chocolate chip cookies and time for all to look through my steamboat photos and artifacts. On Saturday June 4 we'll gather at the LONE STAR/Buffalo Bill Museum at 9AM to examine this last steam sternwheel towboat to run on the UMR. At noon we'll move upriver a notch and ride an active boat, the TWILIGHT. She's making some 1.5 hour trips because the American Pickers Festival is that day too. After the TWILIGHT ride, there are several options: tour the new Mississippi River Distillery; take the self-guided walking tour of the Rapids Pilots' homes; drive down to the L&D 14 complex which includes the old locks now used for recreational boats, the active lock, and the Corps repair yard; go visit and relax in our meeting room at the Comfort Inn and Suites; or even do some of the Pickers activities. At 5:30 we'll have dinner at the riverfront Bierstube, after which we'll adjourn to the Comfort Inn meeting room to hear Capt. Glenn Johnson, the last Captain of the LONE STAR. We'll conclude the evening with some socializing and snacks. On Sunday morning there will be donuts on the levee for those who wish to watch the TWILIGHT start out on her two day cruise at 8:30. If you'd like any more information, email me: The more, the merrier!
