Meeting Saturday 10/13

We're meeting at our usual place in the Galleria Saturday at 9am. It's our last meeting before the election. I hope they debates have you hopeful and entertained.

We will NOT be packing for troops, but if you feel like you want to do something go to Solidersangels.org and you can help out, sponsor a box or adopt a solider.

Just a reminder that the VP Debate is Thursday night at 9pm .

The remaining Presidential debates are on  Tuesday 10/16 ( Town hall style- Candy Crowley) and Monday 10/22 (like first format) Bob Scieffer.

Early Voting starts on 10/29 if you want to go that route.

And for fun and fellowship- join the SMIA page on Facebook. You have to be an approved member to join us in a chat format for the debates. Noreen, Bill's assistant, has joined us too. I think we might finally have an "in" here.  It's lots of fun to chat with our friends during these debates.

Convention update- the location will be Williamsburg, the date is TBD, but Fall 2013 is probably off the table. We want to give people a year to save up, especially those who have to fly. Spring 2014 sound good? I'm trying to to keep the fee at $200 for dinner with historic interpreter, lunch and program on Saturday, breakfast Sunday and weekend admission to the park. I'm also hoping to get a keynote speaker like Mrs. Bennett or Penny Nance from Concerned Women for America.  Come up with some ideas and we can brainstorm this part of it.

I won't be there this weekend- Dagny's grandpa wants to take her to ride a pony. We'll see how that goes :)
