Just a little reminder our next DMSFS Meeting & Dinner Night is Friday October 24th.

As usual the evening will get started at 6:30pm at the West Des Moines Community Center (217 5th St in the Valley Junction district of West Des Moines) with the Officer’s Business Meeting (which has been and always will be open to ALL DMSFS members and guests), and at 7pm the regular group meeting will be called to order.

We also have the Minnesota Room for gaming all weekend long. Remember, this is a potluck event, so bring things to share... Meals may happen, but are not guaranteed, so plan accordingly. There is also a small room block under DMSFS Summer SACC.  There may be some other activities happening, stay tuned for further information.
