Announcing the Fresno/Central Valley Chapter 4th Annual Rally and Tailgate Picnic Sept 9th and 10th, 2005

The Fresno/Central Valley Chapter cordially invites all FReepers in good standing to attend our 4th Annual Free Republic Rally and Tailgate Picnic to be held on Friday and Saturday, September 9th and 10th, 2005.

Our rally will begin at 5:00 pm and end at 7:00 pm on Friday night, at the corner of Blackstone and Shaw in Fresno. Afterwards, the group will gather for dinner and fellowship at a nearby restaurant (place to be announced).

Bring your flags, banners, signs, family and children. Prepare to support your country and enjoy the company of your good FReeper friends!

Our tailgate pot-luck picnic will be held this year at Kearney Park on Saturday, September 10th. We've reserved the "Tea House" picnic shelter for the full day. We'll probably start arriving about 1:00 or 2:00 pm and will BBQ and party till dark.

Kearney Park is located at 7160 W Kearney Blvd about six or seven miles west of downtown Fresno. You can get to the park by going west on highway 180 (Whites Bridge Rd to Grantland Ave then south to Kearney) or by taking the palm tree lined scenic Kearney Blvd from Fresno St (see map). There is a $4.00 entrance fee per car.

Note: The Kearney Mansion Museum will be open on Saturday for tours. See link.

Last year's thread: Tailgate Thread

Hope to see you all there!

Please RSVP by FReepmail to JustAmy or Mama_Bear

Thank you very much,

Jim Robinson
On behalf of the Fresno/Central Valley Chapter

Pot luck picnic on the 10th for sure!!

I'll bring the flags and banner and letters the troops have sent us this past year!

How cool is a matchbook with a picture of bin Ladin and a reward notice!

This is must see TV!

Woo Hoo!!!

The time is sneaking up on us. Only 3 weeks left before we party!!

Hope you can make it this year.

For any of you who have not been to Kearney Park, the Mansion tour only takes 45 minutes and is a good look at our history.

See you on the 10th.

Doggone it! I won't be in California then, will be back in NC. Do you believe I have NEVER had Daddio's tri-tip? I guess I am just not special enough for him to make it for! LOL Babychick and I would love to be there and see some of our favorite freepers, especially PrissyMissy, but we will be there in spirit. However, one day we intend to be there in person!

Welcoming home your sailor is much more important than coming to Fresno.

Maybe you can plan on bringing him to Fresno with you and babychick next September.

Hmmmm .... looks like it will be just Jim, Sheila, Chris, MamaBear, jkphoto, PrissyMissy, Gracie1, patricia ruth and hubby and Enterprise at the picnic this year. We're going to get to eat LOTS of tri-tip, guys.

Might be able to get a ticket at a reasonable rate; the tri-tip and the company would make the trip worthwhile. :)
