Skip to comments.LIVE Report From Crawford (3,000 folks now and STILL COMING!)
Posted on 08/27/2005 10:02:40 AM PDT by TXBubba
Just talked to Basil on site in Crawford, Texas. Currently there are about 100 folks there helping to set up. They have not received word about the caravan arrival in Waco yet. JimRob is riding with the caravan. She thinks it might get to Crawford around 1:00 p.m.
Basil says the stage is set up, the sound system is excellent and they have hung the most beautiful banners overnighted by W04Man on the stage. A big thanks for the banners, they are much appreciated!
Someone arrived early and hung yellow ribbons everywhere.
They have an American flag that is about 50 feet by 40 feet. Children of military personnel serving in the Middle East have written notes to their parents on the stripes of this flag. A very touching thing to behold.
The HOT Chapter booth is being unloaded right now. The will sell buttons made by Angelwood to help off set costs.
Someone rented the Community Center for our use so there is access to AC. However, they also have 10 tents set up. And there is a Moonwalk for the kiddos.
To top everything else there is BBQ on the grill! Basil is the official taster and says it is great!
That is all the news I have at the moment. It is hard to get a cell phone connection to Crawford but when I hear more I will try to update everyone.
Thanks for the report. I hope everything goes great down there and lots and lots of people show. I'm looking forward to whatever reports we can get, since the MSM still wants to focus on the Ditch Witch.
You folks make me so proud to be a Freeper!
Freepers to the Front!
Wish I could be there, but virtual cheers from here.
Why isn't Cindy camped out in front of Diane Feinstein's
house??? All those democrats supported the war.....then.
thanks for the update - sure wish i was able to go!!
I KNEW there was some reason Sharpton was headed to Crawford...:)
Go baby GO!!!!!!!
With you in spirit...clicking through the stations to see if there is any coverage- really wish this could've been web-cast!
Mod- please consider pinning this to the top somewhere.
Thanks for the update.
I'm looking forward to this, and how it's covered by MSM. I hope at least fox keeps it well covered.
I love this and don't mean to throw cold water, but isn't writing on the flag defacing it? I am pretty sure we are not supposed to do that.
Can't wait to see if any media besides Fox covers this!!! I want lots of pictures tonight!!!
Sharpton is a media whore.
Since he told John Gibson yesterday that he was just going to comfort a grieving mother, I wonder if he will comfort all the Gold Star Mothers that are there or only the ones on Cindy's side of the road.
No need to answer that, we all know the answer to that already.
Pardon my confusion, but...it's noon Crawford
local time as i type this...aren't they supposed
to *be* there by now?
You are probably right. But I think the troops who see messages from their kids won't mind it this time. ;) It was their families that delivered it.
