As always the Mississippi River Gathering will be held the weekend after Labor day.
This year those dates are September 8-11th 2016.
We have a tradition of staying at the gathering site for 2 years then going somewhere new. We had a great 2 years at Alton Illinois, but this year we will be upriver at Two Rivers Marina, Illinois, at river mile 283.2 directly across the river from Louisiana, Missouri, the birthplace of Mark Twain, We will be just 26 river miles from Hannibal, Missouri, where Mark Twain grew up and we have plans for activities in Hannibal.
The folks at the Two Rivers Marina have promised to take good care of us.
Many of us combine the gathering with a few weeks of river cruising prior to or after the gathering and we urge you to get out a map and start dreaming. Come by river or come by land. September is the best Mississippi river cruising month, It is starting to cool off by then and the summer river crowds have parked their boats and left the river to us.
More details coming soon.
We hope to see old friends and meet new ones, Please join us.
