Are there any meeting rooms at DMACC that we could possibly use for a 
local users group.
What neighborhood  of the Des Moines area do you live in? I can provide 
you with transportation if need be.
It would be nice if all the DSM people could get together, maybe at a 
coffee shop or bookstore. What do people think?
