DES MOINES — Vortex has partnered with Central Iowa Power Exchange to make the annual CIPEX picnic bigger and better than ever! This year we will have our traditional BBQ and auction, as well as a play party! This is always one of the best CIPEX events of the year, so leave the kids at home and come out for an afternoon and evening of adult fun!
We will have a great picnic space and we’ll be firing up the BBQs, so bring yourself some meat to grill and a side or dessert to share. Alcohol is welcome at this venue, so feel free to bring a few cold beers to enjoy while we get our party on.
We will have some great games set up to beat the summer heat, so bring a bathing suit or change of clothes and ride the amazing downhill Slip-n-Slide Kickball or compete in our Cock Fighting Ring to win fabulous prizes during the afternoon!
There have been some awesome donations this year to the presenter’s auction, so be sure to check out the post on the CIPEX page for updates on all of the great things that will be available to bid on! I know there are a few “lucky” people who will be up for auction to have a pie, to include your choice of toppings, smashed in their lovely faces!
All the money raised at this event will go towards bringing in amazing speakers for the CIPEX Presents munches which allows CIPEX to continue to bringing you great education topics and even better experts to teach you what you want to learn.
We have a private venue reserved for this event where we will have both indoor and outdoor play space available. Have you thought it would be hot to do a suspension outside or tie someone to a tree and flog them? Now is your chance! We have over 300 acres for you to explore and play on, and will have some pieces of equipment set up outside for you to use. Equipment and space will also be available inside the dungeon for those who prefer more climate controlled play.
Picnic and play will start at 3:00 PM and runs until 10:00 PM
Doors lock at 8:00 PM, so arrive early
–>Be sure to let everyone know that you’re going [Here!][https://fetlife.com/events/567586y<–
Admission is $20 online or $20 at the door, cash or card
Online advance purchase is available up until 24 hours prior to event.
This special event and play party is located at a larger venue, with outdoor play space! We will be at the Avenue of the Saints Event Center located at 3357 St Charles Rd, St Charles, IA 50240, a quick drive from Des Moines and well worth it for a full afternoon and evening of fun!
Please note: There will be NO bike rally this night and we will have the space all to ourselves!
Play parties are open to both experienced and novice players alike. Come show off the big scene you’ve been planning for weeks, or maybe just sit back and take it all in while you figure out what exactly it is you like and don’t like. Get to meet like minded kinksters and swap ideas and stories. We provide a safe place for you to play and socialize, just bring your toy bag and we’ll provide the rest.
Don’t have a toy bag yet, or just want to try out a new piece of equipment? Help yourself to our Community Toy Bag, a variety of toys for you to use and try while you’re with us. Just clean and return when you are done!
