any DUers in Virginia want to have a gathering in June?
I'm re-visiting my home-state during June 1-14 and would love, in fact NEED, to associate with some like-minded people while I'm there, to counteract the abundant Bush-loving in my family and old social circles

anyone up for it? Partying, Bush-bashing, assorted liberal-ness, and meeting your fellow DUers?

:bounce: :hi: :party: :beer:

1. Second week works better
Hey,

Richmond and Hampton Roads are doable for me, as is Roanoke. Would really like to meet some DUers so keep us posted.

Cheers,

CYD (half Carolinian, half Virginian)

2. I'll be in Richmond...
but by the 12/13th I'll be ready to visit my true partying-grounds in HR's, so both work well for me

hoping to get anough people to agree on one place, I'm flexible

3. I'm definitely up for it
Roanoke would be best, but Charlottesville would also be doable. As to when, the second week sounds good to me. :hi:

16. cool, I'll keep you updated
I'm leaning towards Richmond since I'll be there and not sure of my transportation access during that time

hope you can make it!

18. we shall see
Roanoke is kind of far for me, but if this is the catalyst for a Roanoke gathering, I say do it! :)

11. Let me know what you decide.
I live in DC and have buddies in VA I can crash with, I could use such a get-together too, but won't drive if I'm going to drink.

If you guys pick a Metro-accessible place, you've got another interested party. If not, drink a few for me.

I'll leave it ultimately up to the natives to decide the exact location

we might be able to arrange some carpooling, too

12. June 5...major PRO-Peace rally in DC....come join us...STAND UP

here's all the info....in the past, DUers take action to meet before the rally, perhaps dinner the night before...or right before the rally starts...or at a designated area for the actual march....why not help with a really productive exciting effort to SAVE LIVES and create a better America??? STAND UP

if not you, who?

if not now, when?

13. that is VERY appealing, esp. since I'm missing the one in San Fran
but I'm not sure I'll be able to do that much travelling...

15. transportation link....could use your help here...STAND UP now...
it looks like YOU could organize a bus from Richmond to DC...and organizers ride free...that part is so easy....just contact ANSWER, by email, by phone....let them know that you are ready now to STAND UP and help....make PEACE happen....

if not you, who?

if not now, when?

23. Ok, it's starting to look like June 12 is THE DAY
anyone have any ideas on where to meet up?

We could go to a bar or restaurant, or perhaps a nice day in the park?

I'm open for whatever :bounce: :party:

I'm open to suggestions, anyone have a place in Richmond that they like? A "Chestnut Tree Cafe" for us thought-criminals?

I can't WAIT!! :bounce: :party: :hi:
