Iowa Selected for 2015 Convention

Hawkeye Point in Iowa will host the 2015 convention. Hawkeye was nominated by Jim Sutton who hosted the 2007 convention at Timms Hill, Wisconsin. Jim’s presentation included some nifty hawkeye black and gold t-shirts.

Convention chairman Nikki Hemphill organized a very funny counterpoint getting her entire crew to raise papers urging South Dakota at the conclusion of Jim’s speech. Otherwise there was no opposition.
