As soon as I hit “post” on this message I will be purchasing two tickets to our National Free Republic Tea Party Convention! :)
Just bought my ticket! Did I make the first 10?
I think you most likely did! Will let you know!
Sorry the link to the ticket purchase form above is not an active link and that you must copy/paste it. Don’t know what happened or what I did wrong, as it was active when I posted the body of the thread.
The Convention itinerary will be coming very soon. Some details are still in the works, but our Freeper Convention events begin on the late afternoon of Friday (9/11) and end on the late afternoon of Sunday (9/13). :)
Going to have to talk to hubby but will try to be there...
Stayed at this hotel a few years ago - it’s quite nice ... pretty views if you’re on the right side of the building with fairly large rooms... and was reasonably convenient to things.. :)

“Is there something that I can drive up for that will not cost me anything? I don’t have a spare $1000 for the whole crew for the weekend. A day trip up is fine but if I can not enjoy any of the FReeper events we will probably not drive up that day.”
I don’t know how long a drive it would be for you to DC, but if it isn’t too long you could come for the Tea Party events during the day and also the Saturday evening Convention Banquet. However, when the banquet is over it would mean driving home in the dark. Hope the drive is not too long and that you could at least attend the banquet. :)
I am in southern VA, so it is only a couple of hours up to DC for us. I don’t mind driving in the dark, so that is not an issue. We will do our best to make it.
Sorry, can’t make it 09/11/09
But will be in DC on 9/12/09
I’m encouraging all small business owners to come to DC on 9/12, calling it ‘A Day Without Small Business’!!
Great! Hope to see you in DC and at the Convention Banquet that Saturday evening. It is going to be a great event! :)
“Will be in DC on 9/12/09
Im encouraging all small business owners to come to DC on 9/12, calling it A Day Without Small Business!!”
So glad you plan to come and we hope other small business owners can manage to make it too!
Keep this thread book marked for information updates and details concerning various events. :)
Will people be able to purchase tickets by mail?
If so, should they be mailed to FReeRepublic’s P O Box or some other address?
