Currently, the Great Plains forum section is described as:

Geocaching in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Dakota.
It has been suggested that Iowa properly belongs in the Midwest rather than in the Great Plains. What are your thoughts as to the organization of this forum section?

i have always considered IA to be midwest.

i grew up in ia then moved to CA then to MN. just getting back to IA recently.

Don't think it really matters either way, other than that geography would suggest moving Iowa to the <ahem> "Mid-West".

Being an Iowa native and having lived in Iowa pretty near a half century now, I've always considered myself to be an Iowan first and Mid-Westerner second. Never Plain. No matter how Great.

One of my very first posts was wondering why since we touch borders with four of the seven states listed in the Midwest forum, we were listed with the lovely people to the west.

 

We touch elbows with Nebraska and SD but we're spooning with Mn, Mo, Il and Wi.

Oh, my! Very aptly put :P

 

Every official definition of the Midwest that I've ever seen includes Iowa. I'm sure someone can find an exception to that, :D but I would think that an overwhelming majority of people would agree that Iowa is Midwest. Iowa is not always included in the Great Plains definition. If you consult the Great Authority, Google, for "Great Plains map" you'll see what I mean. When geographical regions are used rather than political boundaries, only part of Iowa is considered Great Plains. Conversely, ALL of Iowa is Midwest.

Glad to see some replies and discussion. Let's keep this poll open for a month. I'll take a look again on September 18, 2010. Cool?

Sure. I also posted a link in our local Iowa forum.

Thank you, Blue Deuce for posting in IGO forums. Definitely think Iowa is Mid West.

So far, 70.37% of the respondents think we should move the Iowa forum from Great Plains to the Midwest.

18.52% said to keep the Iowa forum in the same place: Great Plains.

11.11% do not have strong feelings.

 

Not so many people have voted.

We'll see what this looks like in mid September.

From the looks of the forum page you have heard from most of the super active members on the Iowa Geocachers Organization Forums, I am sure a few more votes will continue to trickle in.

 

Iowa is considered a Midwestern state. How we got put in the Great Plains is beyond me.

With 70.27% of the vote:

Move the Iowa forum from Great Plains to the Midwest.

 

What a surprising result. :anicute:
