The Eastern Iowa Novas would like to thank all our sponsors, contributors, and participants for their contributions to this years event! We couldn’t do this all without you. Not to be forgotten the hours of work by our club members to really make things happen!


A special “shout out “ to our own Jeff Craft for his DJ work! This was our first year as a 3 day event, and mother nature took objection by hitting us with some nasty rain storms on Thursday. Friday and Saturday were warm & humid , but were nice and free of predicted showers.

The weather & forecasts unfortunately hurt our attendance and we fell short again of our 100 NOVA goal. Maybe next year s 8th Annual Heartland Nova Reunion we can meet that goal with past participants and new attendees …… PLEASE !!!!


The Heartland Nova Reunion is a Top 30 Award Event, plus additional special awards. For 1962 - 1979 Chevy II’s and Novas Located at the Riverside Casino & Golf Resort™ in Riverside Iowa
~ Membership in a club or organization is not required ~


Raffle was held for various items, and a “50/50” with 50% going to
The University of Iowa’s Children Hospital.
Nova Cruise on Thursday evening to Dane’s Dairy was cancelled due to the weather.
The Friday lunch hour cruise to the square in Washington went well (watch out for the buggies).
Friday nights HNR drive-in movie went well, and Saturday’s show time was fantastic
