We're from Houston (Missouri City), and have a daughter who will be a page at the convention. The delegate she was going to ride and stay with is ill, and will not be able to attend. We're not going, although I plan to pick her up in Dallas on Saturday afternoon.

Bottom line: she needs a ride from Houston to Dallas on Thursday afternoon / evening, a place to stay on Thursday and Friday nights, and transportation. Any ideas?

You might check with the Dallas GOP. Perhaps there are others with the same questions?

AUSTIN – Supporters of a political purity test plan to bear a distinctive logo at this week's state GOP convention aimed at ridding the party of what they call RINOs – Republicans in Name Only. Some in GOP push for test of loyalty

WHERE TO EAT IN DALLAS

There are several up-scale restaurants at the West End, which is about 6 blocks north of the Dallas Convention Center. There is a map link at the top of that page.
You can compare that map to the Dallas Convention Center area map

MY FAVORITE: If you want to get out of downtown Dallas, drive north on I-75 (Central Expressway) about 5 miles and turn right onto Walnut Hill Lane and less than a football field distance away, there's a GREAT restaurant on the left called HOUSTONS. They have a variety from $8 to $19. Their ribs are wonderful, as is the chicken (and if you have any space left over for dessert... wow!!). Right next door is Dave & Busters (I've never been there but have heard good reports). One place that used to be downtown was Del Frisco's Steakhouse. But he's now located at Spring Valley (North Dallas) according to here.

At home, I have a copy of the political platforms of Texas dating back to the 1860's. In the 1912 Democrat Platform, they called for a strict adherance to the platform by all democrat candidates because any deviation from it fostered party discord. In the 1996 State Republican Convention, I testified before the platform committee and quoted from that Democrat platform as something that we ought to consider. It generated quite a "buzz".

Unfortunately, I'm to be out of state this weekend, and can't make it to the convention this year.

For those who may be driving downtown, the convention center has about 1100 parking spaces at $8.00 per day.

Other downtown parking and rates are to be found on this PDF (Acrobat) document... Click on the downtown map

Thanks for posting this info. "Smart". :)

Previous FR thread - Planning Thread I - Freepers Going to Texas State Republican Convention, Dallas, TX, June 7-8, 2002" with more hotel and convention info.

When are we going to hear more about the Texas FReeper get together at the convention? Is it on Friday or Saturday? We'll be scattered all over the conference and numerous hotels, so everyone should check in at the FR booth for last minute details on Friday morning.

If using Netscape, click Bookmark on the menu at the top of the screen...add bookmark.

If using Internet Explorer click favorites from the menu at the top of the screen..add favorite.

Easier still...place your mouse on the icon in the url/address box, left click and hold the button...drag to your desktop. Now you have an icon and the link.

We may consider printing up a single sheet describing FR and placing them in the SD Caucus Meeting seats.

It sounds like we will need to hook up a cell phone to a laptop if we are going to have an internet connection. The wireless network connections to the Convention Center's system is $800+.

I have a cell phone, but I've already maxed out my minutes for the next year this past month. lol. LloydChristmas may let me use his laptop. I guess I should bring it just in case? I don't believe it has internet software on it yet (it's new). Maybe I can get Lloyd to load that tonight. We did NOT order a phone line because it was just too expensive. $235.

I know how to do it that way, but there used to be a way to add it to your home page on FR. That's the one I can't figure out anymore. Did they get rid of that capability?

If I remember correctly, nothing much happens until the first Senatorial District Caucus Meetings where you elect your permanent SD Chair and committee members. The Resolutions(party platform) Committee Member and the Rules Committee Members are the key people.

I have heard of 2 proposed rule changes:
1) A rule 43 substitution which would require all candidates for political offices to agree to a Core Party Platform(2/3 approval on Resolutions Committee)
2) A rule 44 which would close the primary to registered republicans only
