Friendly suggestion: Meetup in Des Moines sometime?

It looks like this group always meets in West Des Moines. I casually suggest that we have a Meetup in Des Moines sometime! After all there would not be a West Des Moines without Des Moines.

    I couldnt make it yesterday and I apologize for that. I had issues with car and it was 3 pm by the time I got it fixed.

    I was running late and drove past Smokey Row but decided not to go in since everyone was probably eating by then. Also wasn't sure how I'd find the group since it was mostly people I haven't met. First time I went to an event with Capital City, there was a card on the table. Maybe an SI on a card would be sufficient?

      That is probably a good idea Karen. I like the idea of the host posting their phone number on the Meetup so that they can be found at the event too since some events don't have a table to put a sign on. I have also noticed that people rsvp as yes and then don't change it to no when they won't be able to make it.

    Would this weekend work for a downtown meetup?

      I planned one tonight at Gray's Lake and only 2 people from this group showed up.

    Copper Creek in Pleasant Hill has a nice facility for picnics if that interests anyone. And there's a fairly substantial bike trail to ride that intersects with the same.

    El Bait Shop and the Highlife Lounge are always fun. Java Joe's would be a good choice, too.

    Star Bar is a popular place, I've heard. How about meeting there sometime?

    I also like the idea of downtown or the east side for a Meetup.

    I don't like driving out to West Des Moines, so I haven't been to any of our Meetups in a while. I'd much rather meet in Des Moines, preferably downtown.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
