June 19th Bus Trip To
Washington, D.C. - Debate on Immigration and Rally
Dear Tea Partiers,
We are providing buses to Washington,
D.C. on Wednesday, June 19th, for a day-long Lincoln-Douglas-style debate on
immigration in front of the U.S. Capitol building featuring conservative
lawmakers, and the Tea Party Patriots' Audit the Fed Rally. These events will be
unforgettable. Please click to see details for the debate and the speaker list
for the rally. This morning Glenn Beck said he would be in D.C. on the 19th to
support the conservative congressmen and the Tea Party Patriots.
We will be using Butler Motor Transit,
our usual bus company, to provide transportation. We will have three
pick-up/drop-off locations: Butler Motor Transit, Ross Towne Center, and Lowe's
in Monroeville. Our usual bus fare is $50 per person from all locations, payable
in cash when you board the buses. Our goal is to send as many people as possible
to the event.
(We expect the fare to be less than $50
per person as the Tea Party Patriots organization has graciously volunteered to
pay for two buses from our area. We will be reducing our fare based on the
number of buses we send in total and the number of people who attend through our
group as paying riders. We cannot give you the exact amount of the fare now as
we do not know the total number of buses we will send. Just expect to pay less
than $50. If you need a scholarship, please let us know, we have the resources
to provide them and we will be happy to help you. I will keep you updated as we

Transit at 2:30 a.m., Ross Towne Center at 3:30 a.m. and Monroeville at 4:15
a.m. Be there 15 minutes early to board the buses. The buses all have a restroom
on board. We will be making a stop for breakfast on the way down to D.C. and a
stop for dinner on the way back. With our departure times, the buses will drop
us off half an hour before the 10:00 event. (While the link said the debate
starts at 9:00 a.m., that was yesterdays time. Today on Hannity, Michele
Bachmann told Rose Tennent that the start time would be 10:00.)
