    Default Iowa couple headed to CN

    Greetings all. We are so excited to be leaving the snowy weather in (Quad Cities) Iowa and headed to CN December 27 - January 3. We have been reading the message boards regularly and gained lots of helpful tips and advice. We have had this booked for over 3 months and now we can finally say we are in the final countdown week to paradise!! We can hardly wait to experience CN for the first time and ring in the new year there. If you are going to be there during this time, give us a shout out and we would love to hear from you. Also, if there are any other Hawkeye fans that are going to be there during this time let us know, we plan to cheer them on on the 28th.

    Your going to love it!!! Have fun and relax don't try and do to much or you miss the reason you went. The last two times we were at CN was during the Hawks last game so i would run from the beach to a computer to check scores, I had the pool staff singing the fight song.

    The weather here in northern Iowa stinks.

    Have a great time in Jamaica. You will love it. Bring back some warm memories.

    Hi Iowa! We will be leaving Alabama Dec. 26 and staying until Jan. 2 at CN. Although we've only experienced flurries, we're ready to get out of here and into some sunshine. We are looking forward to meeting some new people. See you there!

    A quick post on this as we have watched MANY Badger Bowl games in Negril and Packer football games (Can you tell what state we live in? But I went to school in Iowa so.... GO HAWKS!)

    Anyway if you want to watch the game go to Margaritaville. They have really put a lot of money into it and its almost like a 2 story sport's bar. Lots of BIG TV's to watch all the games and it's really a lot of fun.

    Have fun and leave us some rum! We arrive on 1/2 at CN so maybe we will catch you on your last night!

    Go BIG 10!!!!

    Hi QCA Couple we are from the QCA area but we go to CN in July, we were wondering where you were flying out of? We usually do the Park Sleep & Fly out of O'Hare. It will be our fourth trip to CN in July. We think you will be in for quite a surprise,the people, the food and the beach will make you feel like your are truly in paradise.

    Hey! We live in Cedar Rapids, and will be in CN through 12/31 with our friends from MN. I am an Iowa alum and can't wait to cheer on the Hawks from Negril. This will also be our first time to a Couples resort, and we cannot wait! Did you see the high temp in eastern Iowa is going to be in the teens on Sunday? Glad to miss that!! We will see you there!

    Chris and Denny: We do the park and fly out of O'Hare. We fly on USA3000. It is half the price of Delta!

    I am from Bettendorf and my husband is from LeClaire. We live in Port Byron now. Small world!

    Chris and Denny. USA3000 is the only way to go! It is only on Sunday. Direct flight from Chicago at 6 to CN by lunch. Leaves at 11:30 back in QCA by 7! We go to Chicago Sat and have a Giordannos pizza and park and fly. It is about 150 pp one way. SOOOOOO much less than Delta and direct and nice crew.

    We need to have a CN party here! Maybe to see the "Boat Drunks"? In Jan or Feb they do that benefit at the RiverCenter in Davenport. Anyone?

    kaityogill-
    My husband and I also live in Port Byron! We were born and raised in Moline, but moved "out" to Port Byron in '04 when our son was just 6 months old. We love it! Do you have any kids at Riverdale?
    Who knows . . . maybe we have run into one another at a school event or "Its"? LOL Would love to hear back from you.
