Catch a Ride on the BUS to DC (MA,VT,ME,RI,NH,CT)
 
Folks,

The magical bus service for highly distressed skilled GC "waiters" is here!
Just sign on to hop on! We are not restricted to one bus or one route. IV will help arrange all this, token contributions coordinated by your chapters are always welcome to defray costs. This is a great way to forge a sense of community as you head rally-wards. No to mention fun and games all the way to DC! You can bring family and friends without being concerned over mounting expenses, stay at common places and travel together to the rally from there and all that stuff too....

What are you waiting for?
tnite and dtekkedil your chapter coordinators can help with any funky local questions. post them here- and remember to sign on...see you in DC :cool:

paskal 08-21-2007 06:43 PM

so near and yet?
 
c'mon guys
if people near Dc won't respond in numbers, what committemnet are we showing to solving our problems? and it's so easy- a chauffer driven ride awaits you!

paskal 08-21-2007 07:28 PM

deardar 08-22-2007 11:44 AM

Has the Bus been already arraigned ?

I thought we were trying to get ppl before we actually rent the bus.

Havent' hear anything from detekkil or any other NE member.

vasa 08-22-2007 02:13 PM

Nope the bus ride is not arranged as yet, this poll is to see if renting bus from Northen New england is a viable option...

it sure doesnt look like right now..
it is disheatening to see that we have very poor response from MA.

paskal 08-22-2007 03:42 PM

Where art thou New England?
 
new england denizens
your pain over the next 10 years is no less than ours will be
but why is your willingness to do something about it less?
a bus from Minneapolis to DC is rapidly filling up.
i hate to say this but, shame on you.

abhijitp 08-22-2007 03:49 PM

New Poll Option added
 
New option added:)

I will attend the rally, I will board the IV bus!

IV MEMBERS in NEW ENGLAND..
 
WAKE UP

Dont shy away from your responsibilty.

Inspite of all that you have endured in the GreenCard persuit , if you are going to be dormant and intend to follow the happenings of the rally on the forum , from the comfort of your couch, then truly paskal is right ..its a shame...

we still have time, do whatever it takes to get a day off ,take a sick leave if needed, join the local chapter and confirm your attendence..you dont have to spend a fortune or anything close if more number of people join in, then we can get a bus from boston to dc...

unfortunately i may be wasting my breath. feel free to prove me wrong anytime.

deardar 08-22-2007 05:00 PM

Communication is also done thru the Yahoo group.
So sometimes it might not be evident here.

dtekkedil 08-22-2007 05:07 PM

Thanks Paskal
 
Thanks for starting this thread. I am sorry to say that the response from MA and surrounding have been really really bad. People aren't even willing to join the yahoo group. Anyways we still have time. Hopefully the bus plan will get more people interested.

Any questions or suggestion, please PM me or join the Yahoo Group to keep yourselves updated.

All the active members, please add the lines "Transportation will be arranged" to the bottom of the flyers. Also, please take it upon yourselves to post the flyers at your local stores, temples, restaurants, apartments etc etc at your discretion. Any functions (Indian or Chinese) that you are aware of, please let us know. We can arrange to have people distribute flyers there.

dtekkedil 08-22-2007 07:19 PM

Important!!
 
People who are signing up for the bus from MA, NH, VT, ME and RI please also let us know the number of people that will be accompanying you.

In case you do not want to join the email group, please send me a PM.

sajidmd 08-22-2007 10:48 PM

Hi,

Can you post the tentavie start time for this Bus ?
I am in Hartford, CT. I would be attending the event. I know couple of other friends would also be joining from Boston. We are still discussing Car vs Bus.

Posting a tentavie time & route will help people like us. (I know this can always change)

Cheers !!

dtekkedil 08-22-2007 11:21 PM

Tentative times
 
Hello sajid,

As of now, we plan to start from Woburn, MA at about 6:00-6:30PM. Assuming a 12 hour drive (including all the stops), we expect to reach DC by about 6:00 AM on Sept 18th and start our return journey at about 5:00 or 6:00 PM on the 18th.

As for the route, the most direct route would be Rt 95 to Rt 90(via Framingham, Hartford, New Haven) to CT.

We will have a bus from MA only if we have enough people (about 40). Otherwise, we plan to rent one or more 10-12 seaters and drive to CT where we will join the CT group in their bus.

This is a tentative plan. We can only make concrete plans once we know the actual number of people (and their locations) who will be joining us.

dtekkedil 08-22-2007 11:29 PM

Please stop by just to say "hello". We would like to meet ya .


Sincerely,

deardar 08-23-2007 01:20 PM

Its an A/C bus :D

swede 08-23-2007 01:53 PM

If you want things to change, all you need to do is get on the bus. (Seldom you get everything arranged for you like this.)

If you want to wait and be mistreated for 10+ years while waiting for your green card, stay at home.

Your choice.

(I'm not arranging this, but I hope people make use of this opportunity to change theirs and other's future lives to the better.)

deardar 08-23-2007 04:12 PM

free refreshments aboard the bus

pretzels banned on this bus :eek:

akhilmahajan 08-23-2007 04:19 PM

As of right now time and place are tentative. We are trying to find how many ppl are interested in going on the bus. Based on that, we will be deciding what is the best place. Woburn, was suggested because it has a big park and ride area. Just be in touch and we will keep everyone updated.

On the other hand, are you planning to join the local chapter meet on the 26th of august i.e sunday.

Please let us know.

diptam 08-24-2007 12:49 AM

ok
 
I'm afraid i wont be able to join you guys on Sunday but I'll come to DC at any cost. I'm interested in the bus but if that dont workout i'll drive/fly. Are you leading this bus trip - what's your contact no ?

deardar 08-24-2007 03:31 PM

You would agree with me that all these years what ever we enjoyed was due to some one else's sacrifice or some one pioneered an issue or a cause.

Dont you think we now have a small responsibility to participate in an effort that will benefit us ?

If you can -please join us !

diptam 08-24-2007 04:04 PM

will connect with you during the weekend !
 
Gor your cell Akhil - Will chat with you during weekend.

Thanks,
Diptam
