Tampa: What is the grassroots doing Monday?Submitted by jd925 on Tue, 08/21/2012 - 19:28
I will hang out to support the Veteran's march to the RNC in Tampa on Monday morning, but anyone want to get together afterwards in the early afternoon?
I figure the delegates will have to prepare for a lot of different functions and some of the grassroots will have more free time. I found Lettuce Lake Park near the USF Sun Dome that seems to be a popular location away from the hustle and bustle of the RNC Convention. It seems like a nice place for peace, quiet and decompression from all the festivities and a good place to network with others. The other thing is it's cheap. $2 entrance for each carload up to 8 people. People can bring their own picnic/BBQ food. The main reason I'm going to Tampa is so I can thank all the grassroots activists and meet people before everyone goes on to the next phase of their journey. It's a bit harder to meet people in events and rallies with thousands of people so a quiet venue like this should be good.
If the weather holds up I suggest a meeting time of 3pm? I might just go there myself anyways for some peace and quiet to do some kayaking or canoeing.
Anyways, email me know if you are interested in meeting up: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll update this thread with any more details. Let me know your thoughts too. Look forward to meeting with everyone!
