2014 National Convention - St. Louis, MO

The AMBUC National Convention will be held October 29th – November 1st in 2014!!! It is in nearby St. Louis next fall and we need to get a good showing for this event, due to its proximity! Al Bedell from the Bloomington Cornbelters AMBUC group will be running for National President!

What are our AMBUCS neighbors in Bloomington/Normal doing? Find out at the website - They give away AmTrykes but they also like to build ramps.
