Daily Paul meetup in Tampa?

Wondering if there might be some kind of meetup in Tampa for Daily Paul members. I'm sure many of us will be at Paul Fest and the Sun Dome, but just curious if anyone is organizing something specifically for DP members, either inside or out of these pre-existing events.

Very Interesting Timing

...indeed.

fonta

Better to stay focused.

Be Prepared! Santana is a distraction, if you're going to Tampa to support Dr. Paul.

I used to love Santana. Sill like hearing them on the radio. Unfortunately, if you go to the Fairgrounds Sunday night to see Santana, you better hope they are not drugged up. Their performance at Woodstock was an off key horror because they were flying so high.

And with the police state security they will have in place for the convention, you'd better stay clean while you're there. They'll be looking for you.

Santana

is one of the all time greats,unique original style and sound and maybe it was you out of tune at woodstock and to drugged up?

who

down voted this? Speak up!

Uh...... NO!

Didn't go to Woodstock and never got so drugged up to not know which end was up.

I do remember going to the movie theater to see the documentary of Woodstock, so I could see what I missed. Wasn't high at the movie theater, either. Couldn't wait to hear Santana. They were one of the best groups of that time. Then when I did see their performance in that film, I was very glad I wasn't at Woodstock.

maybe

it was the audio of the movie that was out of tune? are you a musician?or maybe to hear them on the same level they were playing you had to be as high as Santana was, the same level of vibration.

LOL Funny you should ask...

Yes, I am a professionaly trained musician and worked as a music teacher for many years. The audio in the film was just fine and Janis Joplin was great, as she always was. The only way anyone could have appreciated listening to Santana during that performance at Woodstock would have been to by flying as high as they were.

can't beat em

join em! Was Janis with Big Brother & the holding Company At wood stock I don't recall? I'm sure JJ wasn't drugged or drunk? yeah I remember I made a reel to reel compilation of my favoite performances in the sequence that I thought developed to a final crescendo and Santana was in the Mix and sounded pretty good!what genere of music did you teach? and where were you professionaly trained? Can a Libertarian be trained?

If You Can Remember Woodstock?

You weren't there dude....take a walk.

Such

a original quote! Dude, did you make that up all by yourself? you didn't like Santanas performance?

Daily

Paul tent? C'mon mods!

My group considered it

My group thought about doing this. Well for a minute anyway.

We have a ton of A/V lighting and stage production gear (anything and everything you could possibly think of), a box truck, a RV , and a large military tent w/air condition. We were thinking we'd find good use for it down there. The boss was trying to line something up with Ron Paul Radio and Wounded Warriors or something. But that fell through. So we thought about other things we could do, and one idea was a daytime "check the Daily Paul wifi lounge" and at night "the Nightly Paul dance party". BUT now that the campaign is stepping up to the plate and financially assisting their delegates to the convention, we've decided to cancel our trip to Tampa altogether.

None of the 6 of us are delegates or alternates, and if our absence isn't going to have a negative effect on the capability of some delegates to attend the convention, then there really is no need for us to spend money that could be put to use in other projects. The primary reason for us going to begin with was the more people who attend, the more discounts for delegates. Now that the campaign is gonna take care of all that stuff, the 6 of us are going to save about $10k in combined expenses that will instead be used to support other projects in the liberty movement.

I've wondered about this too

I've wondered about this too and I'm not for sure about the rest of you but I know alot of supporter's user ids but very few faces. I've thought about suggesting we make name tags w/ our user ids on them?

Yes! Good Idea, I think I may do that.

I'd also like to meet a couple people face to face that have suggested I may be a "plant".

anyone for the DP Brawl?

I mean Ball?

Certainly some form of ID so we could know who our

friends are. Some people may not want to use their screen names and that's okay. If some do, others would recognize them as friends. But there should be another way to ID fellow DPers, even if a tag just says "DP Member".

This joining together would be a big help for those who would prefer to be around "friends" instead of strangers, especially if traveling alone. Maybe set up an area for sleeping, too, as some do not want to be alone in a crowd of strangers.

It'd be

great to meet some of the people here. Seems like the easiest place would be Paul Fest....

Excellent Idea!

Bump and keep active.

It would certainly be a fun

It would certainly be a fun idea. I know HVAC is renting an RV at PaulFest. Maybe people could meet there? Someone should ask him..:)
