**From SCOA and Smart USAInsider we have 17 attending"Smarts"**
Here is the plan for the first Iowa and surrounding areas rally.
It is scheduled for Sunday Sept 28th. Meet at 11am.
What we can plan to do is start in Ames, IA (~30 miles north of Des Moines on 35) We will meet at Brookside Park for awhile to meet n' greet. Below is a link for a map of the park's location:

After awhile we can hop in out Smarts and drive down to Ankeny, IA. It is around 20 miles to Ankeny from Ames.
Once we arrive in Ankeny, we can have lunch at the Sonic Drive in Restaurant. There we can eat and show off our smarts to others.
After lunch, we will begin our final leg of the Rally. A cruise down 35 just a bit more to the Des Moines State Capital. There is where we can get all of our Smarts together for a BIG group photo!
Arrive in Ames: 11am
Leave Ames: 11:30am
Arrive in Ankeny: 12:10pm
Eat Lunch/Leave for DSM: 1:30pm
Arrive at the Capital: 1:50pm
In addition, there will be tons of freebies donated by many different organizations as well a prize worth $500 will be given out to one lucky winner!
That's the idea for the rally, please RSVP here if you would like to attend so I can get a count to notify Sonic before we arrive. Also if you have any questions/ideas to add on to this feel free to reply with them!
