Announcing the Fresno/Central Valley Annual Rally and Tailgate Picnic Sept 7th and 8th, 2007
Fresno/Central Valley Chapter ^ | August 5, 2007 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 08/05/2007 5:39:45 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

The Fresno/Central Valley Chapter cordially invites all FReepers and Lurkers in good standing to attend our 6th Annual Free Republic Rally and Tailgate Picnic to be held on September 7th and 8th, 2007.

Our rally will begin at 5:00 pm and end at 7:00 pm Friday night, September 7th, 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).

Our tailgate pot-luck picnic will be at Woodward Park on Saturday, September 8th. 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 year's: Tailgate Thread

Please RSVP by FReepmail to JustAmy or Mama_Bear today!

Thank you and hope to see you there!

Jim Robinson
(On behalf of the Fresno/Central Valley Chapter)

Will the City of Fresno be chipping in to defray the costs again?

MamaBear and "Chef Jeff" will be there, of course! Looking forward to another grate picnic.

I decided that today I would work on the design for the name badges and went looking through my folders for some graphics to use and found this! I don't remember doing it but, after the 2006 picnic, I must have put this together using last year's official picnic photo, saved it and then forgot about it. So, unless a creative streak hits me between now and the picnic, this will be the badge design. :-)

Hope to see you all there.

Well, darn. We are going to miss you guys. But, Cub Scout leader training is an excellent reason to miss it. :-)

Hugs to you both! Hope to see you at the picnic next year.

ROAD TRIP!

L.A. to Fresno is only about TWO HUNDRED miles!

Let's see...
At 100 mph, it would only take TWO hours.
At 75 mph, it would only take THREE hours.
At 50 mph, it would only take FOUR hours.

From Yahoo! MAPS:



Distance: 219.2 milesTime: 3 hours 13 mins (approx.)

Southern California PING!
