Let's Not Forget the Delegates & Alternates!

Revolution Travel Management is doing everything we can to help the Ron Paul Delegates & Alternates get to Tampa for Paul Festival and the RNC! Please help Sponsor the Delegates & Alternates if you can!

I was hoping for a local festival. I can't do Tampa

Say County or District?

Free includes debt-free!

Regarding weather...

I wouldn't worry too much about rain... I've lived here in the Tampa area for 17 years, and though it's true that we have frequent late afternoon showers in August, they are usually over fairly quickly at that time of year. Believe me, by about 3 pm in August, you're happy to see those big clouds form. We get 1-2 hours of showers, then everything clears up and it's much cooler by 5 pm or so.

Lightning, on the other hand. Tampa is the lightning capital of the world, so at the beginning of the thunderstorm it's best to take shelter indoors or in your car.

We have our high school graduations every year at the FL state fairgrounds (I'm a high school teacher and I go every year). There is a HUGE indoor auditorium there which I imagine is akin to an indoor football stadium (well, at least a hockey stadium!). It should keep everyone dry, if they have that building reserved.

I was on the phone

with one of the organizers last night and he mentioned the fairgrounds

Umm...

it says "fairgrounds". Does that mean outside, in late August, in Florida? :|

Maybe the organizer is not familiar with late-August Florida weather? Or hopefully it will be indoors or under a covered area. :)

The RNC has decided to hold

The RNC has decided to hold the convention in late August in Florida, so in order to have the biggest impact on the convention, we have no choice but to follow where they go. and to accommodate 100K people or more, the only choice we had was the fairgrounds. It will undoubtedly be hot - but we will have misters, and indoor venues as well. Plan on getting wet, drink plenty of water, and just have fun! It's Dr. Paul's birthday, so do it for the good Doctor!

We have inside stages..

We're also talking to a company that provides misters...

I've been to a Buc's game that time of year - If football fans can handle it, so can we!

Well...

when I hear "festival" I think of something that starts at 10am and goes on to the night. A pre-season football game in the extreme South is played close to dusk. Big difference.

I'm just suggesting that if you have 50,000 people show up and there is only enough shade and shady seating for 20,000 (the amphitheater) then you might have a huge problem.

If it's just a 7pm concert where people start filing in around 6pm or so then no problem...

If 50k a day show up...

Sounds like a good problem for the production organizers to me!

(I'm on the media team, so I'll be doing what I can to get 50k or more there:)

Well if that's the case, let's keep it bumped up here and

I'll start getting the word out in my neck-o-the-woods.

If we all pitch in a little, come August Paul Fest will be larger than the RNC.

And, I think the timing is perfect. Seeing all the support for Ron Paul will definitely turn some Republican heads. Preferably, in our direction.

Let's rock the convention!

Here is a flyer that's

Ron Paul has amazing friends!

Check out the ad that was posted for free for Paul Fest (thanks to the amazing owners!) at Skinnie Magazine http://issuu.com/skinnie_magazine/docs/121-skinnie-mayjune20... (second to last page:)

They asked for contact info for some of the artists that will be part of the festival too - for interviews in the next edition!

Hmm

I live in Hawaii, so this would be very tough to make with my work schedule (about a day of travel each way). But I won't put it out of the realm of possibility. If attending can help Ron Paul become our next president, then I will definitely try to make it.

Ron Paul 2012!!!!!

I can't promise anything..

But if you can bring these guys - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQJHAFHxNCU&feature=youtu.be - with you from Hawaii, I'll try to get them on stage!

☮This Is Our Time

♥ Planning Massive R3volution Event ☮Summer 2012
Woodstock was just a warm-up for what we will do. 43 years ago the hippies just gathered sort of aimlessly rebelling against reality.

We know what we want and it's far beyond just getting wasted and having a temporary experience or escape.

We will legalize liberty once again.

We will restore the Constitution.

No more counterfeits. No more thieves and liars.

70% of Americans want to audit the FED.

California Medical Association Calls For Legalization Of Marijuana

Televangelist Pat Robertson calls for legalization of marijuana

Like Ron Paul has said, "Something big is happening."

I believe we need an event that will draw millions for 4-5 days this summer.

Somehing that will set off a fresh fragrance across America.

Like the summer of '69.

The theme? "Abolish The Economic Slavery of the FED/IRS Complex in America."

The tail will wag the dog when it comes to the media. They will wag when we say so. No more begging for coverage and legitimate treament.

They have to prove THEIR legitimacy. They will orbit around OUR universe.

We need to create an overwhelming wave of support for the Rand Paul's who are treading water in D.C.

We need to turn this government on it's head and put it under our feet once again.

Rent this movie.

Get in the groove.

It would be awesome if we could get a million people the weekend before the convention.

One of the purpose of the event is to influence the delegates to vote for Dr. Paul... depending on how big we can make this event, it can have a big influence on how the convention plays out.

I don't know

A million people gathering before the convention might have some influence on the delegate votes (for those seeing the power and future of the rEVOLution!

Have you all thought of asking the band....

'Rush' to play at the Festival? I think they would be a perfect fit.... I cannot confirm that they are Ron Paul supporters, but I would be surprised if they aren't... I know the drummer 'Neil Peart' is a big Ayn Rand fan, and therefore 'Free Markets'! I bet they would be awesome... just a thought!!

An idea perhaps

To help confirm to us who will play is to get confirmed celebrity acts to do a small video saying "we'll be there, will you?" to help confirm people will be there and it would make a totally kick as commercial :)
