WWII Military Vehicle through the Missouri Wine Country Announcement

I am pleased to announce that the 4th Annual World War Two Military Vehicle convoy Through the Missouri Wine Country will take place on 6-7 May 2006 in Columbia, Missouri. This year’s event will head to the Northwest of Columbia, visiting a familiar town and several new locations that should make for another interesting drive.


The 2006 event will be held on 19-20 May 2006, based from Columbia, MO.

PLEASE NOTE; the weekend has switched to two weeks later to better accommodate some of the stops we want to make for the event.  Stops will include:

 The site of the Centralia, Missouri Massacre by Bloody Bill Anderson in 1864.

The Audrain County Historical Society (Mexico MO) www.audrain.org

The City of Auxvasse

The Churchill Memorial in Fulton MO www.wcmo.edu/cm/index.asp

Many of the details are tentative and will be coming soon.

For those of you unfamiliar with the event, additional pictures of last year’s event may be seen at:

LODGING for the convoy!

We strongly encourage you to stay at the event hotel, the Best Western of Columbia. It is very close to the event, and has a bar and restaurant. Also, the Friday night reception will be held there, and if we do not book 10 rooms, it will cost the event $100 for the use of the room. Please stay at the Best Western AND ensure you state you are with the Railsplitters so we get credit for it.

The event hotel is the Best Western Columbia Inn, located at 3100 I-70 Drive Southeast. The Best Western Columbia Inn is located at the junction of I-70 and Highway 63, at Exit 128. The hotel has parking that will accommodate large vehicles and trailers. A block of 20 rooms has been reserved under The Railsplitters for the nights of May 5th, 6th and 7th. Each participant is responsible for payment of room. The room rate is $72.00 each night (up to four persons per room) and includes a free all-you-can eat continental breakfast.

For reservations call 800-362-3185 or 573-474-6161. For directions to the hotel, a map, and other information, visit

The hotel will be holding rooms until April 6th. After that time, there is no guarantee of a room reservation. We encourage you to book your hotel accommodations as soon as possible, as this is a very busy weekend in Columbia and many hotels are already booked to capacity.

The hotel is providing a cake and punch reception to convoy participants and their families free of charge on Friday, May 6th at 7:00 p.m. We hope you can join us for the reception and get to know other convoy participants.


Event updates:

If interested or if you have questions about the event, please contact me at soldierboy440@yahoo.com or phone me at 573-489-4891 after 7pm and I would be glad to answer your questions.

Now is the time to start making plans, so do not let things slip by for too long! This will prove to be another great event, and we look forward to seeing you again on the back roads of Mid-Missouri in May!
