Default Are you flying from California?

To IV members who are within driving distance of DC and are not committing to attending the rally, please have a look at this poll and see that there are people flying thousands of miles to attend this rally all the way west from California.

Please take a day off and attend the DC rally. There are many major world issues and US issues at the forefront of discussions in Washington. We have one tiny slot to make our voices heard. This is our chance. If you are taking one day off, it is only one day. Work extra hours on the other four working days in the week. Act now, take this one important day off and join the rally in DC.

Join us on September 18th in Washington DC.

CA Members voting NO in this Poll, we are going to CALL, EMAIL, PM you to change your mind.

CA Members voting YES, you are all superstars! Please remember to edit your profiles and select "YES" - I am attending the DC Rally. This will enable you to receive the latest updates on the rally from IV Core.

Default CA members...

There are thousands of IV members in CA. Please book your tickets now. Yes, it is thousands of miles to DC and on a work day too but as I said we have one chance to voice our concerns. We are not going to get another chance like this anytime soon. It looks like we might have to fly in a few hundred people because DC appears to be sleeping.

Come on California. Submit your vacation requests now. Book your tickets. Fly on Monday night and fly back on Tuesday night if need be. There are a few people already doing this. Make your contribution. Act now.

I am going to DC to participate in the Rally and meet Lawmakers. I know atleast half a dozen others from California who are going to DC. I think is your only chance to get your voice heard in the corridors of power.

I didn’t want to go to DC rally due to my surgery appointment (September 6th) because I can not fly for three weeks after the surgery.

Guess what?, I have postponed my surgery appointment date, booked tickets and going to DC rally on Monday evening and flying back on Tuesday night.

I also urge people to take a day off and attend the rally.

Folks, really great. I am around DC and coordinating the Pickups/Dropoffs. Please PM me your flight details if you need to be picked up from the airport or dropped off to the airport, don't be shy, we will make every efforts to accomodate your needs. There is also a separate thread if you need accomodation (we have several hosts).

Thank you guys for flying all the way from west coast.
Dhiren

PS: Waiting_4_GC, I have your flight info.
