Atl Dems to DC Rally & GOTV


Date/Time:Oct 29, 2010 at 08:00 PM

Taking one day out of our GOTV activities to get rev'ed up with Jon Stewart at the National Mall for the final push to November 2nd is a fun idea to a number of our group members.  Everyone we've heard from has said they prefer going on the overnight bus instead of driving up, so we will not be road-tripping from Northlake Mall by car.  Instead we will be going on a private luxury charter Rally Bus.

Buses are coming from at least 20 states to the big event, and the ATL is in the mix!  Here's the scoop:  As of today there are 67 people who have reserved seats on the Rally Bus (2 buses so far)  that will drive up on Friday night, enjoy the day, then drive home Saturday night (snoozing on the bus overnight both directions.

Total cost is $125 roundtrip and the schedule is:

 Leave Atlanta at 8:00 p.m., Friday, October 29, 2010 - Departing from 1688 Peachtree Street, NW, Atlanta 30309 (Amtrak Station Lot)

All buses aim to arrive in DC by 9:00 a.m., Saturday, October 30th

Return trip buses will leave DC at 8:00 p.m., Saturday, October 30th, arrive Atlanta at 8:00 a.m., Sunday, October 31st

The "Rally to Restore Sanity" Bus will be dropping people off and picking them up at Union Station.

The event organizers have secured that station as DC Rally Bus's exclusive.  This service is for both the Jon Stewart "Rally to Restore Sanity" and Stephen Colbert "Keep Fear Alive" rallies.

Meanwhile, please keep using the system we sent out this past weekend for making GOTV phone calls from your own homes - or wherever you are!  Keep it up from now through November 2nd, and you folks who are taking a "time out" on Saturday, Oct. 30th, to do the DC Rally, come back ready to pick right back up on Oct. 31st.  Then we all get ready to party right here in the ATL after polls close on Nov. 2nd!
