      This is a great opportunity for activists to attend the IRV
      festivities in Takoma Park, like Nov. 4-6.
      Amtrak just announced 70% discounts on the New Orleans and Charlotte
      routes to DC through mid November.

      These discounts make it pretty cheap for a fun train ride. Presuming
      several IRVers (or many) go on the same train, they can use one area
      of the train into an IRV conference or campaign party. (you can
      bring your own food and drink etc. to save cash)

      The risk is that Amtrak can pull these specials at any time. (Last
      week there was Chicago route special to DC for Nov, but no longer
      being offered)

      I recommend posting it to your state egroup when you know which
      trains you would like to go on. Then everyone else can reserve their
      own ticket for the same train while the special is still being
      offered.

      By the end of the ride, probably everyone on the train will know
      about IRV. They can attend a rally in Takoma Park when you get off
      the train. Seriously, the train riders could easily recruit a couple
      hundred attendees for a rally. (The passengers are each meeting
      their own people people around DC already)
      There can even be an train-born fashion show of all the different
      IRV shirts being printed this month.

      You can also use the IRVA list to help plan a train-ride to DC.
