    Welcome to Iowa! The Des Moines forum is pretty dead on this site.

    Here is my shameless plug for my website! We have a small group around the Des Moines/Ames area called DSTA. The site is located at http://clubdsta.net. The forum is not very active this time of year, though.

    Also, you can check out the more general import boards for the area. They include http://www.jdmcity.com and http://www.dragsource.net. Watch out for JDM City, though. Its a lot of honda fanboys that just sit there and make fun of anything else.

    We are going to talk about a cruise/meet probably in the Ankeny area in the next month to get things rolling again.

    I personally am from the Mason City area about 2 hours north of you. I am not afraid to drive my Civic to meet up. My talon is not up for long trips at this time.

    Hey Matt, let me know when you're coming to Ankeny. The VR4 will still be put away but I will meet up with you guys.

    http://www.iowaautoforums.com/ is another local site with a fair amount of dsm owners on it.

    Last year on Feb 28th we had a meet starting from Walmart, Ames cruising to Buffalo Wild Wings, Ankeny. That was a pretty good success! EclipseGS was kind of the one who organized that meet. He and myself are talking about something similar within a month or so.

    I guess, lets start talking. Could Sat. March 27th work for you guys? Rather Sat. April 3rd? Also, what should we do for the event? I really liked last year's B-Dub cruise. Do you guys want to do something similar?

    Looking at google maps, i could see meeting at Walmart again around noon and cruising to B-dubs (or a different restauraunt) in Ankeny. Then we could head west out of Ankeny out to Saylorville lake for some twisticle roads and some pics/tree hugging. After that we could return to Ames and hit Perfect Games for some LaZ0r TAG action!

    What do you guys think?

    eclipseGS isn't on the computer much anymore, but he says he likes April 3rd. We are talking about meeting at Walmart, Ames @ 2pm and B-dubs, Ankeny @ 3pm. Any Des Moines/Ankeny guys could just meet @ B-Dubs @ 3pm.
