We try to have a trip or event once a month for our club members. Every January we have our annual anniversary party. Our day trips could be a casino trip, dinner theaters, touring factories or historic homes or other local points of interest. Mystery trips are also popular with the club members. Can you imagine boarding a bus and not knowing where your travels are going to take you? Cruising has been a very popular venue for the club during the winter months.
The club usually takes one 7- to 12-day international trip each year and one 7- to 10-day trip within the U.S. Some of the areas we have seen are Switzerland, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii, Panama Canal, Australia and New Zealand, Ireland, Italy, as well as the New England states and Canada. We will also do a short 4- to 5-day trip once a year to destinations like Branson or New Orleans.

Reservations and Cancellation Policies
To sign up for trip or event, call Renee Zaiser at 319-753-9185 or stop by her desk at the main bank.
Day trips do not require a deposit. All other trips will usually require a deposit to hold your seat. Trip signups are on a first come first served basis until the trip is full. After a trip is filled, we will take names on a wait list. If someone cancels, we will call the wait-listed persons to fill the cancellation. If we can fill your spot, you will receive a refund subject to the terms of the various vendors. If there is not a wait list, you are responsible to get someone to take your seat. If you cannot find someone to take your seat, a refund will not be issued.
Day trips are usually refundable up to the final payment date. Refunds after the final payment date will be determined on an individual basis. On extended and international travels, refunds vary and depend on the policies of our travel providers. Cancellation policies are explained in the specific brochures of a trip. Trip cancellation insurance is always highly recommended if not included on a trip.
