Least Tempting Sweepstakes Prize EVER

Came home from work and found this in my mailbox:

I'm up for a trip to just about anywhere... but... Greater Des Moines? For a whole WEEKEND!?

I have to admit, for a town of just over 500,000 it DOES have a pretty impressive skyline. Do YOU live in Iowa, or better still Greater Des Moines? Should I enter?

I love how they've qualified it, "Greater Des Moines." Lest I think I might be entering to win a trip to the outskirts of town. That's adorable.

Des Moines IS home to Adventureland and I do love a theme park!

OK... I'm going to enter... I'm helpless against this addiction. I've hunted high and low and can't even find the "official rules" to this one so I'm not even certain what all the prize includes. Airfare? Meals? Is it a trip for two? I'm assuming hotel accomodations at least are part of the package. I'd give you the link to enter as well, but this one is mail-in only and it has to be postmarked today! So unless you got one of these babies in the mail too, yer out of luck!

See Ya in IOWA!

I didnt get one!! I'm so disappointed. Des Moines isnt a bad city from what I remember. Just dont go looking for a whole lot of gay activities!

I will keep my fingers and toes crossed that you win.

You've hit it on the head ... GREATER Des Moines.

I assume that's NO WHERE close to city center, or even the better strip centers.

Is second prize, "Win a week in Greater Des Moines?"

You can stop and visit me if you win. I'm just past the greater part of Des Moines. And definitely come in the winter...with the ice storms and the lack of electricity, it's paradise on earth.

You have inspired me. I just entered sweepstakes whose destination-prizes are New York and Milan. Or is that Greater Milan. I better read the fine print.
