DM Lax Store in 2012?

Absolutely, or so I've been told.
I cannot divulge too much information right now, but I have been speaking with a local proprietor for quite a long time about getting some proper lax equipment in the metro.  Based on the brief conversation we had last night, the plan is to have actual lax equipment - sticks, pads, gloves, and helmets - in stock next spring/summer.
The store in question plans to carry Cascade, Warrior, and another company that I am not allowed to name at this time.  Their stock will be limited at first, but will expand in step with our lax community.  We are working on cross promotional plans to increase lax participation (and their business).

No longer will laxers in Des Moines have to drive to Omaha, Minneapolis, or KC for their gear.  No longer will they have to wait for the UPS man to bring their online purchases.  No longer will the uninformed head to Scheels only to find crappy Outlaws or head to Sports Authority to find nothing.  We will finally be able to refer them to the city's first lax store!
Oh happy day!

Omaha World-Herald Article

The Omaha World-Herald posted an article today about the recent growth of lacrosse in Nebraska.  It is a nice summary of how our neighbors got to where they are, which influenced a lot of our development.
Lacrosse is not yet a sanctioned sport in high school, but schools can participate at the club level. Eight teams took part in the Nebraska High School Lacrosse league this spring. No Lincoln school alone was able to fill a roster, so players from multiple Lincoln high schools converged to form the Rampage.
In case you are unaware, Valley was one of those eight teams.
