Most everyone was in agreement that the Flying Moose was a pretty sweet bar. There were good deals and frozen pizza that was tasty (but make sure the cheese doesn’t fall off your slice). Members in attendance discussed holiday gift ideas, and proved it’s a small world since multiple people realized they had mutual friends or some other connection.
Coming up in December is the annual holiday party (ugly Christmas sweater theme as usual) so mark your calendars for 12/13.

5 Members of the alumni chapter traveled to Ames on November 20 to participate on an alumni panel at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Mu Psi Chapter at Iowa State. The panelists had fun and the collegiates seemed pleased with the panel discussion. Of course, panel members had a celebratory dinner afterwards at La Fuente.

Des Moines had made big news recently because it was chosen to host NCAA Men’s Tournament Basketball Games in 2016. Des Moines has previously hosted NCAA Women’s Basketball, NCAA Men’s Wrestling, and NCAA Track & Field.

Back in October members of the Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter joined with the Alpha Iota Chapter at Drake University for a jointly sponsored professional event: a tour of Confluence Brewing Company. Connoisseurs of fine, craft beer and the less knowledgable alike enjoyed the brewery tour and hearing about the brewing process and business of a tap room and brewing/distributing.
