    Spring Des Moines Get Together

    Who would be down to get a spring meet together? I'm thinking either May 10th or May 17th. I think it would be great, I know we've met up before at Buffalo Wild Wings and a few times at Twin Peaks, but I think it'd be nice to find a park with an open range and have a grill out with the cars. Let me know!

    I'll be out of town for at least one of those dates. The streetcar takeover in KC is the 16/17th.

    So it sounds like May 10th is the plan. Does anyone have a preferred location? I'm going to also propose a rain (hopefully not snow) date for May 31st. Keep those dates open.

    Edit: Walnut Woods by the Raccoon Rivers looks like a pretty solid location. Paved too.

    My last day of semester is the 9th so maybe if I'm feeling up to it I'll swing through Des Moines to come depending on how everything looks, don't know many of you from the Des Moines area but would be nice to meet up. I might just on the 9th, spend the night at my aunt and uncles and finish my drive back home sunday.

    I know there's a pretty nice place with plenty of parking below the dam of Saylorville.

    That would actually be better. I loved meets by Coralville when I lived in Eastern Iowa. Let's plan on a place out there. In the meantime, anyone meeting up at Sonic these days?

    May 10th is also one of the cars and coffee meets down at Karls Performance and Kurgan will be there tuning that day also. That may be a good meeting spot, or gather after it ends??

    I like that idea. We can caravan on a cruise to wherever and grab some chow.
