I thought I would start a discussion about steampunk media.  This could be books, musical groups, movies, etc.Continue

Hello, Iowa steampunk group! Is this group still active? I'm in search of like-minded people to talk to and meetup with. I live in the Quad Cities and am a mature (kind of) woman who sews, costumes and loves most things steampunk! My three 20-something daughters join me whenever they are available. We will all be at TeslaCon3 in Madison Nov. 30--my birthday!

Huzzah! My last location didn't have much by way of steampunkers. I hope to get involved with the group!

Good morning, everyone. It is a pleasure to see that one does not need to travel far to find friendly faces.

As much as I love Steam Punk and as much as I love Cosplay its odd to think I don't have a single Steam Punk outfit.

Ill have to fix that :]

There is a lot of activity on the Facebook Iowa Steampunk page.  If you wish to join, just request it.  If it is Open, there is a ton of spam.  Unless someone else knows a setting to get around that.

The train ride is on for the 26th @ 1:30.  Arrive a half hour early.  Hope to see ya there!

We are discussing riding the steam train in Boone on the 26th at 1:30.  Any ideas or comments?

March Iowa Steampunk Meeting
We had a nice meeting at Smokey Rows with some new faces showing up. Natty Stormbringer and Devan and their gamer group, and Linsey were able to attend. Amanda makes steampunk jewelry and showed an item. Kate & Molly made their first meeting.
We discussed some steampunk books and movies.
We discussed possible activities:
• Shopping adventure
• Hands-on activity like creating goggles
• Visit art galleries
• Roleplaying
• Visit Living History Farms with Picnic?
• Picnic at park
• Visit Terrace Hill, Jordan House, or Salisbury House
• Ride the steam train in Boone!
• Go to the State Fair
• Clear Lake Victorian Christmas (later)
• Steamboat ride on Mississippi
• Visit Prairie Meadows for the Horse Racing
• Visit the Historical Building
• Have a Charles Dickens or Titanic event
• Have an event at Sleepy Hollow
• Go to a Steampunk movie
I have left out or gotten some things wrong, so feel free to make comments or give further ideas.

Yes, the meeting is still on.  Unfortunately, it is not a good weekend for some people.  But whoever can make it is welcome. 

Suggestions for agenda items?

I was sorry to miss the last meeting. I was in California where did see several large blimps (which seemed appropriate for that day). I like the idea of visiting the Living History Farm. Is the meeting next weekend still on?
