    Default WingDing 2015 Location

    So now that WingDing is in full swing, I was hoping to find out about 2015? However after talking with the phoenix office, they are mum on the location. They won't be telling us until Madison, next year! Bummer!

    They always name the next 2 at the end of the rally. They will say Madison for next year and ??? for 2015.

    Nope! They said they won't be announcing any farther than 1 year ahead!

    Madison will be a neat place, that's very pretty country up there and hopefully a little cooler. Might have to try it out next year. Last one was in Des Moines that I attended, and it was fun.

    Been to Madison. I don't like vacationing in the same spot if I can avoid it. I think the rule should be a NEW venue every year.

    Madison is very close to the House on the Rock, if you haven't been there you don't know what you missed. Also close to Mt. Horab, quaint town with trolls carved into tree trunks lining main street, also the ONLY museum dedicated to mustard, yeah I said mustard. Very interesting! If your looking for a longer ride go to Dyersville, Iowa home of the movie site for "If You Build It They Will Come". I'm quite sure the Pizza Man can add more to see in that area while he's giving away that free pizza. the old, tired, retired, wore out oil baron and broke farmer Charley

What a bunch of liars, huh? Now I'm sorry I asked . . . San Antonio, TX . . . REALLY! Are you kidding me? What a let down . . . !!

    I heard that next year it was being held underwater and you'd need to pack scuba gear.

    Default Topeka in 2016

    I travel there on business several times a year but never venture out to see the sights. What is there to do in Topeka and surrounding areas while there with the Wing Ding?

    Nothing in Texas but dust, heat, and crime up the wazoo! WingDing will be a no-show there so no need to bother . . .

    No, and never will. Nothing against Spokane, just wouldn't be economicaly viable.

    It was held in San Jose way back, and it was a disaster attendance wise.

    Billings is as close to Spokane as it has been. Numbers were way down compared to east coast locations.

    I mentioned to the staff at GWRRA in AZ that they need to change the date to say, Sept. Having it in July, with 110+ temps is insane! The list here shows y'all that Texas was the second lowest attendance in the past 18 years! Why am I not surprised . . . and now they want to return there for another beat down! Go figure . . . .

    Later would be great since wife can never get week of 4th off because of seniority based vacation schedule. Next year only 35 miles away so I will be there regardless of her being able. She can still participate in evening and week-end activities.
