JAX.....New Free Republic Chapter in Jacksonville, Florida
September 12, 2002 | SpookBrat

Posted on 09/12/2002 1:20:48 PM PDT by SpookBrat

I'm trying to get a JAX chapter started, but haven't received much interests as of yet. I'm hoping by putting up a thread, more people might see my plan. If anyone lives in the Jacksonville, Florida or south Georgia area and would like to be a part of a new chapter of FReepers, please consider it. It will be lots of fun and I feel it's important to organize ourselves. FReepmail me with your email address so we can create a loop for communication purposes.

I'm mostly interested in supporting our troops in the area, but there will be other opportunities to make our presence known as well. I believe Jeb Bush will be here for a debate on the 27th. (Is that correct Dutchgirl)?

Here is your official ping. Please help me get the word out. Some of you aren't in our area, but I know you have massive ping lists, and I was hoping you might know people in Jacksonville to ping for me. Thanks for your help and support.

I'm excited and ready.

I hope you don't mind the ping. I went down the Florida location list, as per Summer's brilliant idea. Let me know if you are interested or not. Thanks in advance.

PS: David O, I know you aren't in JAX, but you might know someone who is. :)

I am so happy that our great state of Florida is now developing other chapters!

This is a huge state. We need many more chapters.

If any other Florida Freepers would like to form chapters in your area, please freepmail me and I'll get you on the right track.

I hope to make it there soon. I hear there are good shells and sand dollars for the kids to find. Since we moved to Florida 6 months ago, beach combing is our favorite thing to do. :) Nice to formally meet you Julie.

Oh a new baby! Woohoo! Congratulations on your new child. Don't worry about being helpful. I hope we can keep it low key till we get up and running. Maybe just meet for dinner and plan some simple things to do. Babies are welcome (so I can hold them). LOL

Best wishes, Spookie. I'm in the Florida chapter and live just north of Clearwater. If I can ever be of any help, just freepmail me at "MinuteGal". I love to see new chapters get off the ground.

You're one of FR's Finest, in my book!

Great graphic, SpookBrat. Our federal leaders in Canada, at the moment, are utter morons, but there are a lot of us rank-and-file commoners who know the score. We are in this together. Let's roll!

Good luck from the Houston Chapter of Freerepublic. We started with very structured meetings with all this protocol. About the third meeting we had an insurrection and kicked out the sitting president. We then elected a new president in name only just to comply with the Freerepublic rules. We made another decision to get to know each other, find out each other’s interest and strong points. It has worked like a charm. We have had a bunch of very successful freeps, complete with pretty good media coverage. We also take weekly trips to the range to express our second ammendment rights and last week we took money we raised and bought clothes, shoes, and school supplies to the poorest school in town. We delivered the goods to parents, kids, and teachers with a very strong message about self-reliance, and dependence on the nanny state. Last night we all met for dinner, and observed 9/11. Your chapter will work well if you let it naturally evolve. Good luck

Thank you for your excellent advice. I'm writing your name down to email when I need ideas. My idea was to "let it evolve" as you say. Not many people have time for dogmatice structure. I just wanted to organize for friendship purposes first, then watch for opportunities to FReep or express ourselves. I really have my heart set on supporting the military here as best we can.

You have some wonderful ideas. Thanks so much for your comments. I appreciate them, since I basically don't know what I'm doing. LOL I'll figure it out as I go. I know for a fact, smart people will join, who can help. Dutchgirl is on the ball and ready with a bunch of good ideas.

Fla before, can ya believe it? And I'm an Air Force Brat too!

Hey, Spookbrat! It looks like the pickings here in Jax are pretty good. I'll be happy to help in any way I can. On the upside my workload is amazingly light, I have the net at work and my employer is hugely supportive of Republican causes. Time is not a problem...however, as a "relative" newbie to this kind of forum, I really don't know what a ping or a bump is. In the 9 years I have used the internet I have shunned anything remotely resembling a chat room in order to avoid perverts and obnoxious 12 year olds. It wasn't until I had logged copious lurking hours that I finally could not resist joining in some of the hugely addictive debates here in FReeperland. Any replies with technical assistance would be greatly appreciated.
