Western Slope (CO) FReeper Breakfast
4/04/05 | dware

Posted on 04/04/2005 9:32:13 AM PDT by dware

Are there enough FReepers on the Western Slope of Colorado to warrant a breakfast/meet n greet in Grand Junction on Saturday, April 16, 2005 at Starvin Arvin's?

I would like to see us playing a bigger role in local and national politics, and thought this would be a great time to get to know each other and work on a plan on getting involved.

If there is enough interest, let's do it! I think we could make this a regular thing, and eventually get special speakers in and more.

Starvin Arvin's

LOL! You're playing into the stereotype. Why not an upscale restaurant, instead? It might freak out the liberals who dine there. ;)

Is there really such a thing as an 'upscale' joint in Grand Junction? Not that I have seen...

Suggest the place - I said SA because I was going to say Denny's first, but the Denny's here is rotten.

I was always rather amazed at the political divide betwixt the Front Range liberal mindset and the conservatives living on the Western Slope.

Who is this Arvin and why is he starving? If he is the owner, then let's find another spot!

You can also contact the Corado Chapter of FR Network, using form on below page, and see if they want to participate. The Colororado Chapter link on this web page is dead, but possibly the form will allow you to get in touch with some Colorado FReepers.
http://ice.he.net/~freepnet/

You've already, posted something to the Colorado state board http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/profiles?location=54, but it is also advisable to ping Colorado FReepers to this thread. You can get the names of FReepers, who have declared Colorado as their locale, by going here:
http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/profiles2?m=member-list;location=54

Many FReepers list their city or county and you can limit your ping to those within a reasonable driving distance.

(You probably already know this, but for the benefit of others who may consider FReeper meetings, one should NOT list personal residence addresses, email addresses, or personal telephone numbers in a public board, but you can use FReepmail to communicate those as needed.)

One of the greatest traits of FReepers is their willingness to roll up their sleeves and do what needs to be done, instead of simply waiting for someone else to do it.

Hope that you have a great event!

PS. Being in the DC area with the very active DC Chapter (http://www.dcchapter.com), the meetings that I've been to have confirmed: FReepers are the greatest.

Great Idea !!! You can count on the Mr and I.

Are we talking the Arvins in Clifton, or the one on North? Clifton has appropriate decor (guns, mountain men stuff).

Can't wait to meet other western slope freepers.

East slope, front range bump!

West slope FReepers, get out there and have some fun. You have to admit, there are tons of leftist loonies here on the front range, but you guys have Aspen!

FReeping in Aspen sounds like a real hoot! Can you say "Target Rich Environment"? Remember, nothing gets to a leftist like conservatives holding protest signs and grinning. Especially when the signs are not politically correct (make fun of them).

Thanks so much to the link for fellow Colorado FReepers. I thought it had gone away when my old link disappeared long ago!

Hey, there's the Nepalese restaurant downtown on 5th street. I'll try and make the March 16 Starvin' Arvins meeting.

Cool! I'm hoping we can discuss some opportunities to FReep these Libs around here. It is quite surprising actually, that most folks look at this area as pretty conservative. Unfortunately, most of our elected officials, particularly local, are RINO's.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

"...political divide beween the Front Range and the Western Slope...?
It's a phenomenon. When they read the Pledge of Allegiance on Memorial Day at the veterans' park in Palisade, they always say "under God." Try to stop them? Wouldn't advise it. Too many Winchesters.
Personally, I always wondered how the Front Range got so liberal.

"Personally, I always wondered how the Front Range got so liberal."

When I arrived in Boulder in 1976, you could still see "Don't californicate Colorado" bumper stickers.

I can only remember meeting a couple of people whose families had been in Colorado for generations.

Lots of people from the SSRC and New Jork, though.

Passed thru Paonia once years ago. Beautiful area. I remember the local cherry orchards, a stream running under a small bridge, a storefront radio station like on Northern Exposure, old victorian homes, buffalo burgers, the overland reservoir. lovely town.

Paonia is still beautiful! For some reason, the area has a lot of liberals. Probably left over from the hippie days of the 60's and 70's.
