Inaugural Countdown: Only five weeks to the Inaugural Ball! Get your tickets now!!

Only five more weeks to Inauguration Day. You won't want to miss the excitement and pageantry. The dinners, the Inauguration itself, the parades, the balls, great fun, great fellowship and great memories to last a lifetime!


FReepers arriving at the 2001 "Count the Silverware" Ball


Having a ball at the FReeper Ball! Wish you were here!


Bob Barr and Gary Aldrich say howdy and thanks!


Gov Huckabee and "Dubya" wow the FReepers!


FReeping at the Ball!


Gov Huckabee and Capitol Offense perform their magic!


And the FReepers swing into action!


Requiem for Truth and the Mr!


Basil and Mr Basil!


Just be there, baby!

And less than two weeks left to get your early bird reduced price tickets to the Free Republic W2 Inaugural Ball featuring Gov. Huckabee and Capitol Offense.

About half of those who signed up to get their tickets at the $175 price have submitted their orders. Order your tickets now before the price goes up to $200 after December 26. We want to make sure that everyone who requested tickets has a chance to attend the ball at the initial reduced price.

We're posting this message as a reminder before folks start their Christmas travels next week. BTW, W2 Inaugural Ball tickets make great stocking stuffers for the conservatives in your family!

Hope to see you at the Ball!!

Thank you very much,

Jim Robinson, Kristinn and the W2 Inaugural Ball Committee

P.S. This event is not a fundraiser for FR. It's priced to (hopefully) at least break even.

P.P.S. If you can't go to the ball, but would like to help someone else get there, please donate to our ticket discount fund and or to our general ball fund. Donations are being accepted to help cover the costs of inviting honored guests such as wounded members of our armed forces recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital. We've already received enough in donations to get at least four or five soldiers and guests to the ball and to offer discounts to several others. We'd like to invite as many as we possibly can.

Did you ever ping the FFT about the Ball? I'm sure they're still taking donations to buy tickets for soldiers from Walter Reed, too!

Yeah I'm rather disappointed that it'll be 5 more weeks before the DUer's implode.

They still have hope of overturning this massive Rovian conspiracy you know ;^) Whoops I just let the cat out of the bag!

Someone forward my post to the MSM!!! . . .

Bumping your thread for you, even though I'm waiting for one more check before I buy my tickets. Hope they aren't all gone. I could be so much richer if the government didn't steal so much from us. LOL

Or you can try these backup numbers:

1-888-LRCHZRO (Lurch Zero)
1-866-43TDIDS (43-Tom Daschle is deeply saddened)
1-800-FLIPPER (No explanation needed)
1-800-EDLWNPT (The law firm of Edwards, Longwinded and Petty)

Hi Jim,

A question from a rightwinger from the Left Coast, deep in the heart of the People's Republic of California...do you know of any local celebrations that will take place?

I'm not too far from the Reagan Library (Simi Valley), and I know that some FReepers were there during the memorial week, I'm kinda curious. As much as I would love to go to D.C. for this, finances dictate that an alternate plan is needed.

Thanks for all of your work, and I hope everyone has a great time.
