On this rally we are inbound to the remarkable Amana Colonies which are a National Historic Landmark! Located in the heart of Iowa, the Amana Colonies, established in 1855 by German immigrants, are a haven of live theater, shopping, museums, art, food and festivals.

Sunday May 19: Arrive after 12:00 noon and get checked in at the office before 3:00 pm so you won’t miss the 4:00 pm Meet and Greet (Pioneer Building) featuring wine, cheese, water, and heavy appetizers. Festivities for the 20th Anniversary starts at 5:00 pm when we celebrate our club’s wonderful 20 year history of fun, fellowship, great times and life on the road.

Monday May 20: Rise and shine and get reconnected with your other club members at the 7:00 am yummy catered Hot Breakfast (Pioneer Building). Then board the bus at 9:00 am for an Optional Guided Tour of the Historic Amana Colonies (including a traditional family style lunch) returning at 3:30 pm. Bring your favorite beverage and a snack to share at the always welcoming 4:00 pm Social Hour (Pioneer Building) followed by dinner on your own. Bring your tall tales and whoppers to the Campfire at 7:00 pm.

Tuesday May 21: Roll out of your Born Free, take a walk and then share experiences with fellow Born Free enthusiasts as you enjoy another 7:00 am delicious catered Hot Breakfast. Next, plan to attend the informative 10:00 am club Biennial Business Meeting in the Pioneer Building. After lunch on your own, 2:00 pm should find you at either the Ladies Afternoon Tea & Fashion Show (office Annex) or the Technical Seminar (Pioneer Building). Again bring your favorite beverage and snack to share at the ever friendly 4:30 pm Social Hour. Then after dinner on your own, our musically talented folks are invited to entertain us around the Campfire at 7:00 pm.

Wednesday May 22: Top o’ the mornin’ to ya as you again awake to a 7:00 am scrumptious catered Hot Breakfast in the Pioneer Building. At 9:00 am it will be off on a bus for an Optional Tour to the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library to discover all that it has to offer and back at 1:00 pm for lunch on your own. Then it is Free Time to do as you wish (local event brochure provided). At 4:30 pm bring your favorite beverage and snack to share at Social Hour. Next meet at the Pioneer Building at 5:45 pm for the traditional Group Picture followed by a 6:00 pm delicious Barbeque Buffet Dinner, great Entertainment at 8:00 pm and some surprises.

Thursday May 23: Join everyone before hitting the road with a 7:00 am tasty continental breakfast. Say so-long to old friends you have reconnected with, new friends you have made and make plans to see each other again down the road.

So, everyone get registered early and get set to come on out to the 8th National Rally & 20th Anniversary Celebration and we’ll all have a real great time.

Click on the blue 2019 Leap'n Lions Biennial National Rally Registration Form.pdf button on left side of the attachment window just to the right of the paper clip symbol located at the very bottom of this post window just above the top photo to download the Rally Registration Form. You have two choices on how to fill out this form.

Choice #1:
You can fill out each of the blank fields on this form online using your computer's keyboard without the need to first print out the form. Click at the beginning of each blank field until a flashing cursor exists and then type in the info into the blank. After you have filled out all of the appropriate blanks on the form, then print out two copies, one to mail with payment to Jerry Breu and the other copy to retain for your records. Please note that you cannot save the filled in form on your computer, you can only print it out with the blanks filled in.

Choice #2: You can print out two copies of the downloaded form. Then fill out the blanks by hand writing in the information clearly on these two paper copies. Then mail one filled out form with payment to Jerry Breu and retain the other copy for your records.

NOTE: Please be aware that club by-laws require all rallies to be self-supporting. The rally hosts will try their best to properly cost this rally in advance. However, if rally expenses exceed rally income an additional pro-rate amount will be charged to each attendee after the rally. Likewise if there is a rally profit a pro-rated refund will be made to each attendee.

NOTE: Please contact the rally hosts directly using either the phone numbers or e-mail address provided near the top of this post rather than clicking on the blue Image button at the bottom of this post. The info above was posted for the rally hosts by the website administrator (bfadmin-2) and clicking on the blue e-mail button below will address your e-mail message to the bfadmin-2 rather than to the actual hosts.
