(Edit: Please note—this post was concerning the 2009 Tea Party events in our area. Click here for the Win in 2010 April 15 Tea Party. Thanks; hope to see you there!)
Tanglewood Park or Veteran’s Park. Pick one or the other, or both!
As you may have heard, the Brazos County Republican Party has announced the Brazos Tea Party, another Tea Party event for our area. This is excellent, since we’re all seeking the exact same outcome: getting the federal government out of citizens’ lives as much as possible.
Since this announcement, we have talked with a number people regarding whether we should simply join together and have one single event. Interestingly, most of them are wanting us to keep our original event going as planned. Part of this is due to the fact that we already had our speakers booked. Another factor is the desire to maintain the intended non-partisan aspect of the Tea Party movement. We’re even a little concerned that with the hundreds of flyers we’ve distributed, if we moved our event to join the one at Veteran’s Park, a number of people may not get the news and end up at Tanglewood with nothing to do but frisbee and a picnic.
So, your choice:
- Bryan/College Station Tea Party: April 15, 4:30 – 6:00 at Tanglewood Park in Bryan
- Brazos Tea Party, April 15, 4:00 – 7:00, Veteran’s Park, College Station
Bottom line, anything we can do to bring more people together on the same page, motivated to understand the causes of what is happening and what we can do about it, the better. Look at both events’ list of speakers (B/CS Tea Party speakers; Brazos Tea Party speakers), see what your friends are doing, and choose one or the other, or both!
