  • what do people think, Corney? are there clues in the points? Onawa, Ida Grove, Pocahontas, Clear lake, Waverly, West Union, Manchester, Belleview?

  • Since it’s clear we won’t get an East to West route anytime during my lifetime, I had hoped we would at least get:
    Le Mars
    Sibley
    Emmetsburg
    Forest City
    Osage
    Decorah
    West Union
    Guttenberg

    I think, however, the points on the corn plant may indicate we’re going to get another “traditional” route and jwsknk may be correct. Going “up” from Onawa and then eventually “down” to Bellevue. If that’s the case, why don’t they just rent out I-80 for the week? I hope this is just a silly coincidence. I’ve never really bought into the subtle points of the logo stuff. Well, there’s always GRAGAAWR.

  • I don’t know anything about the hints that might come from the logo but if you are right about them then instead of Bellevue Could it not be Camanche? Camanche would be a new ending town and has a new city administrator that has worked in other towns that have hosted RAGBRIA. Don’t know his whole story but Camanche did put in a request to host.

  • I was thinking ducks would be good, they are popular right now. Oh well…let it be corn, but something better next year.

    RIDE RIGHT

  • Sure, Camanche is possible. I’m not an Iowa resident so I’m not familiar with ingress and egress to/from Camanche to any nearby major highways but it seems they (the DMR) look pretty closely at that but I guess Camanche is not worried.

  • I thought this was a post about the new logo??? How did we get to ” Camanche? I never heard of Camanche!!!! How are the Kurbs????” and ducks.
    This years logo is not a home run but I have seen worse.
    262 days and counting.

  • Camanche is the south side of Clinton. of course the conspiricy theory could be wrong and the plant isn’t pointing out the overnight towns. But 8 points, 8 towns??? now how many chain links, 42? better count then i guess. 42? should be dolphins in the logo. So long, and thanks for all the fish

  • Three stars & two screws means you have to drink 3 Lone Star Beers per day plus two screwdrivers.

  • Lone Star???? Ick! On the last trip south I had a Rahr & Sons beer called “Ugly Pug”, a black lager….pretty good. I tried that Lone Star out some years back and it was a no-go.

  • Back to the logo; after 40 plus years something new is tough to come up with so maybe Iowa birds next year and I’m tellin ya those ducks are what’s happenin right now. So how about barnyard birds, chickens, ducks, guinea hens, geese and turkeys???

    RIDE RIGHT

  • As long as this is the logo thread, what are your favorite 2 logos (by year). Mine was 2008′s water tower followed by 2011′s bicycle.
