Important Update from the Anamosa Hillclimb Facebook Page:

THE HILLCLIMB HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED.
“Denny and Wade Schultz at the Anamosa Hillclimb have made the difficult decision to reschedule the Hillclimb to our rain date JUNE 23RD. The area has been flooded and there is no way that it will dry out in time to hold the event this Sunday. The water will be back in the banks by Sunday which will give us plenty of time to put on a great event for you guys in three weeks.”
“Even though we are going to our rain date we will still have all of the events and classes that were scheduled for this Sunday. Children’s foot races for the Razor scooter, exhibition trophies, Tin Roof Hideaway and Event Center, cold beer, and a good time!”
