Greetings Fellow Grand Canyon State Porcupines!
The venue for the Grand Canyon State Porcupine Conference has been
secured, but I need you to RSVP so I can get a final count and give the
restaurant your menu choices so that they can be prepared for our
meeting... Please do so as soon as possible, as I need to turn in the
menu choices by 06/20/03.
We have our choice of any of the following for our luncheon following
Crispy Baked Chicken
Of course, if you don't wish to partake in the Luncheon or have special
dietary requirements please let me know as well. They are willing to
make accommodations to those who don't eat meat. I hope that everyone
will stay for lunch though, because they are giving us the meeting-room
for free based upon the assumption that we will be eating... they are
running a restaurant, afterall. ;)
I am suggesting we each contribute $20 to cover the meal and tip. The
meal was quoted at $12.95, and I think that $7.05 is enough to cover the
tax and gratuity for our activities at this fine establishment. Whatever
I collect is going to them, and everyone is on the honor-system. I'll
cover a shortfall myself, but I'm not anticipating such. :)
Once again, our conference will be following the Arizona Breakfast Club
(http://www.arizonabreakfastclub.org/), which is a live radio morning
debate forum hosted by Ernest Hancock, host of the morning program
"Declare Your Independence" on Independent KXAM 1310AM
(http://www.ernesthancock.com). I've personally attended two of these
forums, and they are of great interest to Liberty-minded individuals
here in Arizona. The Arizona Breakfast Club begins at 8:00am sharp, with
a generous breakfast buffet (all-you-can-eat scrambled eggs, bacon,
flap-jacks, hash-browns, as well as a choice of juices/coffee... all for
$10!) and stimulating discussion until the 9:00am live radio feed, where
all Libertarian/Freedom-loving heck breaks loose.
Our meeting will begin at approximately 10:30AM, and I anticipate we
will conclude shortly after 1:00PM. I'm expecting the format of our
meeting to be more of a "meet your new neighbor" in the free-state, and
a free-discussion of the merits of the candidate states.
That's as much organization as I have been able to muster, and if anyone
has any suggestions beyond that, please feel free to forward them to me.
Here's the important info:

If you wish to attend. I told them we have 20, so astound me... ;)
