Great time at the Calumet County Fair promoting Ron Paul!

What a great weekend! The Calumet County Fair is a small fair held over Labor Day Weekend, but the cost of the having a double booth was so reasonable, I thought what the heck! Turned out we had way more interest than I ever expected, especially compared to the Winnebago County Fair we attended earlier in August.

Our Fox Valley Ron Paul Meetup sponsored a Ron Paul Booth complete with the World's Smallest Political Quiz, a petition for people to sign urging Sen. Ron Johnson to Audit the Fed (Campaign for Liberty), issue cards, dvds, books, bumperstickers, yard signs, and buttons. We even have a t.v. playing "For Liberty" and a dvd with a compilation of Ron Paul interviews.

If your local meetup has not done something like this, I highly recommend it. I am still on a natural high from it and I can't wait to set the booth up at a Tea Party to be held in Oshkosh this Saturday.

So what's the cost you ask? Here is the list:

One booth rental: $120 + $50 deposit for next year
Two 6' tables: $70 after $10 rebate
Two fitted tablecloths: $35
Ron Paul Balloons: donated from a meetup member
T.V. and dvd player: donated from a meetup member
Slimjims: donated by meetup member
DVDS: donated by meetup member
Bumperstickers, buttons, and yard signs: all meetup member donations

The books we have for sale.

Also, we found that having the petition really allowed us to start talking about Ron Paul in a non-direct way and made it much easier for us to introduce him, but the majority of people there knew about Ron, but wanted more information. So the dvd with all the interviews was being handed out alot!

And the best thing to have at your booth are CANDY and BALLOONS! We told the children they could have a piece of candy if they took a slimjim to their parents and it always worked.

We handed out 100 balloons and collected 70 petitions. Here is the link to some pictures:

Best Labor Day Weekend EVER!

Whoo Hooo! Fox Valley Ron Paul Meetup!

I just accepted a job in Appleton. I'll be moving there from St Louis in a couple of weeks. I'll look you guys up when I get there.

Just in time to help install our huge 8' x 32' Ron Paul Sign

Keep your calendar open as much as possible, I know you are busy moving and getting settled in!

Can't wait to meet you!

Wish I could have been there...

Good work Savvy... I was doing my best whilst sporting my t-shirt and handing out bumper stickers in Crandon at the races... I'm sure I'll be seeing you soon.

Somewhere there are men planning the next destructive and evil ploy to make this world their own... The common man is not part of that plan as we would see fit... Merely pawns to be used against one another.

Hey Sign!

Why are you not a member of our meetup yet?!!! WE need YOU, because you are actively doing your best, we want you on our team.

Check out Fox Valley Ron Paul Meetup @ meetup.com. Next meeting is next week Thursday at the Appleton Public Library.

btw, I am in Stockbridge, so not very far from you, don't make me come and get you! :)

I am a member...

I've been giving Dave the files to make the BIG BIG BIG signs. Right now I'm working on getting a spot at the intersection of 151 and 55 just south of Stockbridge on the Newer Poll Shed on the east side of the highway.

I'm sure you know where I'm talking about. The big concrete driveway up the hill? That's my in-laws.

I should be at the next meetup with info on the tattoos. LOL!
