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.
Ill 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 dont 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 youre 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 youd 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. Youll have the opportunity to meet people youve 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.
Gosh, I am so envious of you all who get to attend! May God keep you all safe from harm, and victorious in your efforts!!
Everything there is pretty flat. There is a bit of a hill at the Washington Monument.
Washington D.C. on a budget
N. GA Freeper ping!
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.
Thanks, prayers are always good.
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.
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.
I’ll do muh best to be there. I won’t need a hotel room, since I live near the DC area.
Hope you can come, keep an eye on the threads for this so you can meet up with us for a while during the rally.
Put me down for 2 adults w/kids (we will fit into 1 room nice enough).
I am going to bring as many people as I can, we need the Numbers!!!!
Count me in!
One room, Two People, Two nights....
It’ll be fun to see the faces of some of you!
Do me a favor and please FreepMail me room information. I’m really glad you are going to come and you’re right, we do need numbers.
Bring as many friends as you can....my goal? 100 room filled with Freepers, think we can do that?
Thanks abb...as a Mississippi transplant after 45+ years in DC, I’ll be there...I know the way!!!!!!
Every year since September 11 there has been a Freedom Walk usually beginning in D. C. and finishing up in the Pentagon parking lot on the Virginia side of the Potomac for music and tributes to the fallen. The Memorial is now complete, I believe. If the Freedom Walk is again held September 11, 2009 you might consider including it in your plans. I’ve been every year and it’s time well spent.
I’m just handling the Free Republic side (hotel coordination for Freepers coming in from all parts of the country) who are attending the National Tea Party.
The Tea Party organizers have a program scheduled for 9-11 in memorial to those who died, but have not given out full details.
