    Trophy's is good lots of TV's plus a quick drive to my house. Connnected to Plaza Lanes for those who are wondering, on Euclid or Douglas same road but change names at MLK.

    Re: Official Game Watch...

    Hey,

    Thanks for the update. I want to say that I merged to the two threads and put them under ISU General. Instead of having two game watch threads in two sections, I thought one thread would be better and easier to find.

    Re: Official Game Watch...

    I had a very unpleasant experience at Trophy's last weekend. I have Dish Network and did not get the game at home (I was not able to attend the game because my wife is 8 months pregnant). I called up Trophy's Friday afternoon and asked if they would be broadcasting the CU @ ISU game. I was told that the Iowa game was the feature game there, but they would be showing the ISU game on a few TV's. So I show up at 11am with my wife and 2 kids. We order appetizers and food. 11:45 rolls around and the game still is not on. I go up to the bar and ask the bartender if they planned on showing the game. She said that it wasn't coming in. I asked what they were going to do about it. She said they would work on it. I watched her fumble around with the remote, yell at the tv and then go back to helping other customers. By this time the other 3 groups of Cyclone fans had finished their drinks and headed to another location. So I am stuck there watching the Iowa game with the place full of screaming Hawk fans. I asked the waitress "what are you going to do about my bill" she says "what do you mean" I explained that the only reason I came there was to watch the ISU game and obviously I didn't care to see the Hawks play. She went and talked to the bartender and came back and told me that there was nothing they could do. I paid and walked out. Very unhappy.

    I am very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience.

    A lot of the GDMCC members will be there and we hope to make the experience better.

    I do hope people will attend. The more Cyclones the less Hawks!!!

    It is a work in progress.

    But the more times we can fill the place with Cyclone Fans the less this will happen.

    Go Cyclones!!

    Re: Official Game Watch...

    I'm sure sorry to hear that about Trophys. DO4ISU and I have really strived to insure Cyclone Fans get a fair treatment at Trophys. I'll speak with the owner and let him know of your past experience. I hope you come on out this Saturday. Ask for Al or Don from the Greater Des Moines chapter of the National Cyclone Club and we'll make sure you and yours will be a great time this weekend.

    Re: Official Game Watch...

    You guys at the GDCC do a great job and it was great meeting many of you at the Meet the Coaches night.

    As I said in another thread, I do like Trophy's a lot - great place to hangout. But if there is an Iowa game on at the same time as an ISU game - it's not a place I'm thrilled on going to. It seemed the bar catered to the Hawk group the night of the ISU-Toledo game a lot more than they did the ISU group.

    But that was just our experience. It is very tough to get a near-Cyclone only hangout.

    Re: Official Game Watch...

    I remember last year going to Trophies for the Kansas vs ISU game. No one was there. I sat alone and cheered in silence! Kind of odd if you think about it, a big rivalry and not really anyone there.

    I have gone there for football, some basketball, and even the superbowl a few years back and have had a pleasant experience every time. I wish the best of luck to the GDMCC to gather more troops and make the best game day atmosphere!

    Re: Official Game Watch...

    I thought People's downtown was going to do some big game watches, but they dont have tvs, maybe AK O'connners downtown will do so big things now. It's just nice to have on central location with the Cyclone Pride can come together.

    I though I had heard the same about People's downtown..... that it would be the ISU game watch HQ for Des Moines. Anyone have any info?
