    You can run into quite the characters at The Waters Edge.

    There is more than one bar? TCI is pretty nice. :) And they have a bait shop.

    Never speed... the peace officers there are very diligent about keeping the peace and speeders at bay!

    Can vouch for this. Pretty much like Huxley. Wear your seat belt, also.

    I grew up in PC. As far as bars. I used to go to the waters edge but haven't been there in awhile. I haven't been to the Landmark since the new owner bought it but it is a lot smaller than the Waters Edge. There is also an American Legion that has a bar. The Marina at saylorville lake has a bar but it is more expensive.

    The pizza place is pretty good.

    THIS. He is not joking. Found that out the hard way... I have one ticket to my name, and that is a speeding ticket in that fraking town... Cop was an *** about it, and didn't even have my speed on radar... He could "tell" I was speeding and ******* me out for it. Not sure how you notice 29 mph in a 25, but I guess he was good...


    I went to college thinking I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

    I go 5-8 miles above the speed limit usually and I'm sure countless times have sped in PC and havent been pulled over.

    I've heard about the police. Everyone else seems friendly so far....except for my next door neighbor.

    Cops are ALWAYS on the prowl looking for speeders.

    Good luck.

    I lived there for a year and a half, don't speed, eat at papas as much as possible, Waters edge by far, go fishing as big creek and bring some drinks, I really miss that the most!

    Very small, but nice, if you are driving towards Ankeny in the morning or coming home at dusk, be carefull for all the deer between PC and the Marina, they are everywhere.


    Quote from imported_blubberhawk on HN after ISU beatdown of Iowa in Carver '14

    "When you lose to a fricking joke of a program like ISU, you get what you deserve. That game is a perfect illustration of why our head coach should be retired.
    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."
