[[LPC - Bay Area Chairs] Election Night Party: February 5, 2008]

Anyone interested in hosting (or organizing at a venue) a party on
election night? If not, I'm happy to do it at my place.

Rob

Okay, hearing no volunteers, I'm happy to host the Election Night
party at my place...

What: Primary Election Night Libertarian Social
When: Tuesday, February 5, 7pm to Midnight
Where: Rob Power's home at Third and Folsom in San Francisco
     (close to Montgomery Street BART/Muni station)
Why: Because politically active Democrats and Republicans shouldn't
be the only ones having a party on Election Night
Details: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/417756
Archstone's entrance is at top of stairs that surround fountain
(elevator is to left
of flower shop)
Apartment 6111 is to the right side of the courtyard after you enter
(look for Lady Liberty's crown)
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=3rd+and+folsom%2C+94107
(Archstone is catercorner from Moscone Convention center, so there's
plenty of parking in the area, including Fifth and Mission Garage)

Call 415-762-0524 if you get lost.

All,

I wanted to inform you of the Santa Clara County election night party on
February 5th.

Also, I've convinced National to send out an email newsletter if

they can

get enough counties to participate and hold their own parties.

Sean's email sent out to the State chairs is below the Santa Clara party
details. As he said, this doesn't have to be a grand affair. A pizza
parlor, sports bar, or private home with a TV is all you need to
experience and share an exciting night of the election returns coming in
from all over the country. It's also a great time to gather people
together to get signature signed for our candidates.

If you are able to put together an event, please let myself and Sean

Haugh

(sean.haugh@...) at National know.

Thanks!

Hi Rob,

I agree with you about Dems & Reps having a good time at election
night, while we work late or whatever Libertarians do! Time for a
change! I tried to RSVP at the evite-type thing, but may have not
succeeded. My caveat is that other ladies need to attend also.
Francoise? Kelly? Janet? Jawj? (I will e-mail her because she does
not belong to the lists).

Thank you, Rob.
