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

Hi! If I'm in town, I'd enjoy coming by. At the moment my tentative business plans call for me to leave town around the 7th, and be gone for up to a week.

Hmmmm .... hope you can change your plans and leave on the 12th.

We would enjoy meeting you and I think you would enjoy an afternoon at the park.

Hope to see you then.

Sorry Amy, I did reply with a yes earlier in the thread but it looks like it didn't post.

Jim and Sheila sure do get around. They will be back in time for the picnic, right? I bet if they are back then that means that Synco with be back also.

Do you want me to bring rice pilaf? Does the Tea House have an electrical outlet so that I can plug in my roaster oven?

It has at least one electric outlet.

If it is okay, I will make a list of who is coming and then assign dishes to bring. I know there are no stores close so everyone will need to bring plenty of ice.

I think I knew that you were planning to be there; just didn't see anything.

See you the 9th and the 10th.

No, I haven't been up the hill very often this year. My brother didn't sell his art at the Mountain Peddler's fairs for Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. When I do come up, I am usually on a mission, like to pick up my RV or deal with the MIL.

It will great to see you at the picnic. Are you also going to be able to come down to the rally on Friday? We miss you and your dear husband.

Are you coming this year?

Being as you forgot all about the picture, I could see your new haircut in person!

I remember you almost made it last year.

Dr. Zoo wants to meet you...

No one started an after picnic thread. :(

I didn't take any pictures this year but Jkphoto did.

Hey .... Mamabear ..... maybe you could post a few pictures on the picnic thread?

Newfrp04 .... if we get pictures posted, we will ping you.

Here is the annual group photo.

Amy, did you get the link to the website with the photos that JK took? He was supposed to freepmail them to all who attended the picnic.

Thanks for posting the picture. Many of us who could not attend were wondering how the picnic turned out.

I finally got the chance to look at the link. The pictures turned out great. It looks like 6 or 8 people left before the group picture was taken.

I thanked JK for the link but I didn't feel comfortable posting any of his pictures without asking. I did steal a couple of the kids, though. :)

I had thought that Jim would post a thread; I think he took some pictures.

Newfrpr04 ... we had about 34 people; the weather and the food were both awesome. Hope you will be able to join us next year.

Jim ~ I just want my fellow FREEPERS to know ~ I'm not dead, nor have I givin up our concervative cause. Making a living and caring for the chihuahuas has consumed me of late. I still go to my local Republican events, and of course, still to a bit of camping w/ my dogs. I follow all news, mostly radio, and Fox TV. What I haven't kept up on is my internet connections. It's probably 6 or 8 months since checking my email. Somehow I've managed to survive! Go figure. But, I do miss the time, on line w/ you all, and even more, the FREEPS! Bucky, the SUPER FREEPER chihuahua sends his regards. He still wants to do a leg lift on that Osama pinata! With my warmest regards to you Jim ~ Peace and Happiness ~ Pattie
