4th Annual “Mid Missouri Meet-Up”

It’s is that time of the year again to plan for another Road Trip Adventure with your fellow Volvo enthusiasts and friends.

The Heart of America Chapter will be “Meeting Up” with the Gateway Chapter down on the banks of the Lake of the Ozarks on Saturday October 15th.  Starting with lunch at the Golden Rock Winery…

We will then make the short trip over to Bridal Cave for a one hour tour of that unique hole in the ground.

Based upon past history, the drive to and from the Lake of the Ozarks region should be both pleasant and colorful in mid-October, so we will be treated to seasonal scenic natural beauty both above and below ground.  As a bonus, the Golden Rock Winery gets rave reviews for both their lunch menu and wines – which are advertised as being available for “tasting” at that facility.

The distance from Kansas City to Camdenton is approximately 150 miles and three hours is the estimated driving time to get there.   As usual, a convoy will be organized from a mutually convenient starting place and we can then enjoy the view of both countryside and multiple Volvo’s on the way down.   Return trip will be less organized so as to allow for flexibility in scheduling needs of the individual traveler/family.

This is a dandy day trip which should be of interest to both the driver and family members.   Please review the web sites for both locations at the links provided.

As Camdenton is so close to our friends in the Ozark Roller’s Chapter, we have invited them to join us this year, making it and even more special event.

I would like very much to have an RSVP as soon as possible so that I, along with my counterpart from the Gateway Chapter can plan this event properly.  If we can get a total of 15 attendees or more, we can avail ourselves of the group rate for admission into the Bridal Cave complex, saving the individual $4.50 off of the regular $18.00 adult admission charge (Children 12 and younger are at a $9.00 rate).   My email address is

Hoping to see a large contingent of Volvophiles descending upon Camdenton in October!
