Default Drop off/ pick up

About 6 people including myself are flying into DC on the morning of the rally. We will be reaching Washington Dulles airport by 7:10AM.

Is there anyway someone can pick us up/ drop us off? Maybe a bus can pick up people from the airport if around 20 of us are coming at the same time?

Don't worry if this is not easy. We can just rent one or two cars and come... just don't know enough details about parking etc (which I imagine will be extremely difficult)... it would be nice if someone provided some info on this too.

I am being asked the same question by a lot of other people signing up as beneficiaries at:
http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/sh...ad.php?t=12441

Thanks!

Hey,

somebody was asking if they can get their professional camera for good quality photos during the rally. Do we have anyone who has already volunteered for it?

-Thanks

Default Accomodation and Transportation needed.

I will be reaching Baltimore Airport (BWI) via Southwest on the 17th mid-night (11:55 PM) and then will be returning back to Houston on the 18th night and have my flight from BWI at 7:30 PM..

I would be needing accommodation for 17th night so that I can have some sleep and can get ready for the Rally next day. Also, I would be needing help with transportation.

I would like to be at BWI airport by 5 PM. Hence, I am available for the Rally and any other work that would be needed until 4:30 PM on the 18th Sept.

I think my flight schedule matches with Texanmom. I will try to contact her today.

Hi Pappu,

I will be landing in DC on 16th Sunday night (so that, on Monday, I could help the team with the prepartion for the rally) and take off on 18th night.

I would highly appreciate if any of the IV members in DC can arrange accomodation for me for two nights in their home. Commute will not be a problem as I would be renting a car. I intend to contribute the hotel savings to IV.
