Counting down to the Inauguration! Only one week left! Get your Inaugural Ball Tickets Now!

Only one more full week to the Inauguration. 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!

Not too late to get tickets!

Hope to see you there!!

P.S. If you can't go to the ball, but would like to help someone else get there, please donate 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 and others. We've already received enough in donations to get at least a dozen or more soldiers and guests to the ball and to offer discounts to several others. We'd like to invite as many as we possibly can.

Bump!

Also, if you are one of the ones who ordered tickets by mail-in check and have not yet sent in your check, please let me know by FReepmail or email. It's probably too late now for your check to arrive in Fresno as Saturday is the last day we can pick up at the PO Box. Let us know if you're still planning on attending the ball, and bring your check or credit card to the door. We will honor your order price.

Thanks!

Hope to see you there!

My wife and I are sorry we will have to miss the best ball in town. We are volunteers on the Inaugural Committee and are assigned to work at one of the crowded "official" ones. By the way, not only do those have cash bars, but I've been told that they aren't even serving food!

Attended in 2001. Sadly (sort of) Mrs. jimfree has scored tix for an official ball. Will be going to that this year. Have fun at the Freeper ball!

The DC Convention Center is only a few blocks from the Washington Plaza... after the W2 ball ends, many folks will probably do as they did in 2001, and head out into the lobby and bar area (where we can smoke) to continue socializing. Think about stopping by afterwards, if you and your wife aren't exhausted from working at the official ball.

P.S. Thanks to you and your wife, for being volunteers with the PIC. I know you guys are working very long hours.

I'm certain that all of you in the DC Chapter have been working much harder than I have... between the preparations for the Freeper Ball, securing permits for the parade, and everything else you're doing. I'm always impressed by your energy and dedication.

There are many PIC volunteers who have been working with little sleep over the past few weeks. My "real" job has kept me from getting that involved.

We may try to stop by the Washington Plaza afterwards, but we won't be certain of our exact schedule and duties until this Saturday.

You'll be majorly missed.....but closing on a new house is so exciting.......so your absent note is valid.

I'm just kidding with you. I have to write an excusal note for my daughter to not be in school on the 21st, so it's on my mind.

Good luck with your closing and best wishes to you with a new house.

Great!!!!!

Are we there yet!??

I'm saying the same thing.........

We may live in Virginia, but because of where in VA we live, our drive time is probably not going to be all that much less than your fly time from the west coast........but I don't care.

4 years ago I didn't know a soul.......now I'm afraid I won't get a chance to meet in person all the folks I've gotten to know that I know will be there!!!!!

You have a safe trip, my FRiend.....and make sure you're not carrying a butane lighter...

We are all getting anxious!

I heard the local advertising today for the ball. Is it getting results here in the DC area? No other Ball has the same drinks, food, and great Freeper Friends in attendance!

It will be nice to see you again.

My husband called me from the road yesterday to tell me about hearing the FReeper Ball ad. And to ask me if I knew about it.....which I didn't.

I can't get DC stations at home, so haven't heard it myself, but he thought I may have known about it.

Great! I'm sure the girls are thrilled with their dresses.

(We'll have to take a group photo of all the girls together. They're growing up before our eyes, aren't they?)

I helped with the "walk-up" crowd. They had been sent from other parties that were too crowded to even move.

Promised food etc. they handed over the $ and seemed happy to have a place to go. They had been "all dressed up and no place to go"!
