Posted on 09/06/2006 2:58:00 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
The Fresno/Central Valley Chapter cordially invites all FReepers and Lurkers in good standing to attend our 5th Annual Free Republic Rally and Tailgate Picnic (and FR's 10th Anniversary celebration) to be held on September 8th and 9th, 2006.
Our rally will begin at 5:00 pm and end at 8:30 pm Friday night, at the corner of Blackstone and Shaw in Fresno. Afterwards, the group will retire for dinner, refreshments and good fellowship at a nearby restaurant (time and place to be announced).
Special note: About 150 members of the Youth Group of the Riverdale Assembly of God will be attending our rally. Some of them will be arriving between 5:00 and 5:30 and the rest after 6:00 pm. They may also be bringing their sound truck to use as a stage. Those of you who were with us a couple years ago when they did this will remember what a thrill it was to have this group join us. This rally promises to be a huge patriotic success. You won't want to miss it!
Our tailgate pot-luck picnic will be at Woodward Park on Saturday, September 9th. We've reserved the "Gazebo" area for the full day. We'll probably start arriving about 1:00 pm and will dine and party till dark.
The entrance to Woodward Park is on Audubon Drive, just off Freeway 41 (Friant Road Exit) on the northern edge of Fresno. The Gazebo area is near the center of the park (see park map).
Bring your flags, banners, signs, family and children. Prepare to support your country and enjoy the company of your good FReeper friends!
Last years: Tailgate Thread
Note from Mama_Bear:
Not only will this years picnic attendees chow down on the best tri-tip EVER, expertly prepared by FReeper jkphoto, they will also enjoy a fun afternoon socializing with a great bunch of Americans, AND they will receive this collector's item, - their very own, one of a kind, limited edition, name badge commemorating the 5th Annual FreeRepublic Tailgate Picnic and Rally AND 10th Anniversary Celebration of this fine website, FreeRepublic.com.
Now, how cool is that? ........
Please RSVP by FReepmail to JustAmy or Mama_Bear today!
Thank you and hope to see you there!
(On behalf of the Fresno/Central Valley Chapter)
I hope you can make it.
We enjoy meeting new FReepers and jkphoto does an outstanding job on the tri-tip.
Looking forward to meeting you.
Sorry, we're stuck in Phoenix (not Lodi, LOL) again. Maybe in the spring...
We did buy a house up on Trimmer Springs Road, though. Hopefully we'll be moved in by December. See you soon, I hope!
Looking forward to meeting you at one of our Rallies.
Did you sell your house in Phoenix?
I was certain I'd be able to get up there for the weekend but circumstances changed and I can't make the trip. Was sure looking to hanging out FLAGS with y'all again (and more of JK's tri-tip) but will have to take a raincheck. NEXT TIME!
Regrets and HAPPY 10th Anniversary FreeRepublic!
We will miss you, TSOA.
Hope you can make it back to FResno soon.
Mark your calendar for next year ..... weekend after Labor Day.
You gonna make the trip to Fresno next year?
We should be able to make it - Lager and I.
Great! We have your name tags already printed. See you tonight and/or tomorrow.
It is just about time for me to leave for the Rally.
Hope to see everyone tonight and/or tomorrow.
I will be there about six. The church group is showing up later?
We will see you about 6:30.
Some members of the church group are going to try to make it by 5:30.
See you soon.
See you then.
OK - will be there at six for sure!
Yesterday was a pleasure. It was nice to meet so many caring people and engage in enlightening chats. I hope we will have occasion to meet more often. To one and all, my God bless you and hold you and yours.
Should read: May, not my, but at least the error reflects how I see my relationship with God.
It was great meeting you and having a chance to chat for awhile.
Hopefully you will be able to come to some Friday night Rallies.
I'll be posting some later I'm on my way to Sacramento for the MAF 911 Event tonite.
