Default Re-filers as well as others

Re-filing deadline is over now, and there is no use whatsoever tracking receipts!

Please decide now, and please participate in the poll.
You have the option of saying "I want to be reimbursed upto 100%" .

Seriously, no need to feel shy... would you go if the rally was held 2 blocks away from your home? THAT is the question to answer for you (and it is really hard to understand why you would not go if the rally were held next door)!

If you are willing to go to the rally, there are members who can help you cover the cost of your airfare.

So please, make up your minds and grab those reibursement vouchers Thanks!

Default GA chapter

I tried to ask people if anybody is interested in car pooling from Atlanta and received a couple of responses. I am sure there are many people who cannot afford to fly but can still make it to the rally by road. Maybe another survey should be directed towards them.

P.S. Is there a GA chapter for IV? If anybody belonging to that chapter please PM me.


Please check the state chapters thread currently running. Someone from georgia did post there.

Abhijit, Arun and D2k, thanks for driving this thread

Yes, I booked on Jetblue also. I fly out of Oakland. Put in request for two days off. Looking forward to this exciting event.
I booked my room at Harrington, as suggested by Franklin, this hotel is within walking distance from the Washington Monument.

My husband and I cannot make it to the rally due to personal reasons. So we already contributed 300 dollars to the rally to compensate for our flight expenses to the rally.
Thanks

Of course friend, no complaints about people like you Thanks.

At the same time, I would encourage others like you to directly help someone else fly... and encourage even more people to actually FLY.. the number of people willing to sponsor you is increasing!

Just saw 2 more votes, thanks to the people who voted.

GC444, read the first post for details. Someone will be assigned to you, and you can demand that he followed the process outlined so that things are transparent between you & him/her. Thanks for voting!

There is only one isssue right now... not enough takers... ever seen anything like that before

There is ONE " I will give 100% " already (our dear friend gc444... many thanks friend!) who can now approach one of the lucky "I will go if paid 100%", and announce the name of the winner here.

To grab the 50% awards (there are many of those now) someone must come forward to take them!
