A few days ago it was announced the Florida Chapter of Free Republic would be gathering together in D.C. to attend the National Tea Party. Due to overwhelming interest all across the country, the event has now gone national

Get your plans set and join Freepers from across the U.S. for the 1st. annual Freeper National Tea Party Convention!

This event is open only to Registered Freepers, their families and friends.

I’ll be coordinating this event with the MOST appreciated help from seekthetruth. For now I (Brytani) am collecting names of those who are committed to going to D.C. with us. Once we have a realistic idea of how many Freepers are aboard, I will be contacting Hotels in D.C. to find a group or convention rate. 

We already have a few wonderful Hotels on our list and don’t want to wait until they are filled up. The plan is simple and will take only a FreepMail but time is of the essence!!! Hotels in D.C. are filling up fast!!!

Please send Brytani a FreepMail if you are going to D.C. or if you’re strongly considering attending.   For now I need your FreeperID, the number of room you will need the how many people will be in your party. If you have any questions please ask them on this thread or if you’d prefer you can FreepMail me.

During the first week of June I will announce the Hotel, room rate, address, perks etc and when and how your reservation will need to be made.

For those who are considering joining us but have not completely committed, please FreepMail as well. This will give me a better idea of how many room to inquire on.

If you are already attending please consider staying with Freepers from around the nation. You’ll have the opportunity to meet people you’ve been talking to for years and make new FRriends.

Come on everyone get on board!!! Save a bit of money! Could you ask for a better group of people to spend a weekend with?

Thanks to JimRob for allowing us to make this event an official Free Republic function.

I will be doing everything in my power to attend, so put 2 on the list of ‘strongly considering’. My mom is fighting terminal cancer, so I will not be making final plans(tickets, hotel, etc) until the last minute. We have family in Baltimore, so we can stay there if hotel rooms are all booked.

Thanks for your efforts in this patriotic cause and let me know if I can help in any way.

I would, but my daughter is getting married on 9/12 and she’d be really, really, really upset with me if I missed it (and all the rehearsals)..

Great. Someone comes up with a great idea to protest taxes and some big spending group of liberals comes and co-ops it.

I’ve received a few requests from Freepers who would like to share a room with another Freeper.

If you would like to share a room please let me know and if you’re male of female.

Thanks!

Everything there is pretty flat. There is a bit of a hill at the Washington Monument.

You can see the yes and no. There is a small hilly area you go up or down near the Lincoln Memorial; once you’re at the Mall it’s completely flat.

With the amount of people I have so far, we should be able to easily get a 4-5 star Hotel for a very reasonable price.

To all: so far the count is 42 rooms and 67 people, given this is the first day the thread has been up, it’s looking VERY good.

Count Update

So far I have a count of 42 rooms needed with 67 people, given that this thread has only been up a few hours, it’s looking VERY good.
