Another Texas Group is Heading to Iowa

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Texas is Palin Country!

I used the group’s banner because it’s becoming apparent that contrary to the notion being pushed by the media, Rick Perry may not be the Texas favorite to capture the GOP presidential nomination after all.  (I’ve heard rumors there’s at least one group supporting him on the basis that at least we’d get a new governor out of the deal.)  Today, I spoke will Del Parker, and Jelayne Sessler, organizers forTexasO4Palin in the Dallas/Fort Worth region.  The two are putting together quite a big production in order to carry as many Texans as they can accommodate to Iowa for the September 3rd Tea Party of America’s “Restoring America Rally” where Governor Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker.

Mr. Parker provided me some important details, including a letter they mailed out to all the people already interested in participating.  It’s a stunningly large affair for such a small grass-roots organization, but apparently few are better able or more thoroughly motivated than Sarah Palin’s supporters in the Lone Star State.

The US Coachways charter bus will depart from Dallas, Texas at approximately 8pm on Thursday, September 1st and return late evening on Sunday, September 4th.  The bus will be adorned with the signage at the top of this post. Seats are $175 per person which includes round trip bus travel and transfers to and from the event site.  Lodging is not included but an applicable group discount is offered.

If you are in the Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex or can carpool/ fly into the area and are looking for a fun and economical way to attend this event, click here to contact a coordinator.  Small group pickups in Oklahoma City or Kansas City are also offered.

That’s right, Sarah Palin’s getting back on the bus, and these industrious supporters are chartering a bus of their own.  $175.00 for the trip!  That’s a fantastic value, because by my own calculations, if my schedule would allow me to travel with them, I’d save myself at least $50.oo in gasoline for my efforts, and I wouldn’t be driving the whole way!

Mr. Parker’s letter:

Good afternoon Patriots,

Jelayne Sessler of Organize 4 Palin of Fort Worth and I are extending our invitation to all Tea Party groups in Texas, offering return coach bus rides out of Dallas to the Iowa “Restoring America” Tea Party event over Labor Day Weekend.

We offer return deluxe bus service with two professional drivers to the Iowa Tea Party meet for $175 per person, with free parking in Dallas. This trip includes shuttles from our hotel 15 miles from the site at Hawkeye Antique Acres in Waukee, Iowa. We hope to take at least 4 buses x 55 passengers each. If you have friends that are affiliated with various Tea Parties in Texas, or nearby Oklahoma or Louisiana, please forward this invitation to join us in Dallas for our 7:00 PM departure Thursday September 1st.

It will be a 14 hour overnight journey with breaks, which will put us at an approximate arrival at our discounted hotel in Clive, Iowa, at about 11 AM Friday. The drivers need 8 hours to rest, during which you are free to rest, or lounge at the pool, or to go over and help set up at the site about 15 miles from our hotel. From the hotel, the drivers will bus us to a 7 PM Friday evening meet and greet informal dinner with other Organize 4 Palin and Conservatives 4 Palin volunteers from all parts of the U.S. From there we need to be back at the hotel by 10 PM, so we can be in line at 6 AM the next morning, as the road into the event is long and single file, and will be jammed by 8 or 9 AM. I know folks that have told me they will be camping out at the site, rather than fighting traffic.

Several of the Tea Party leaders I have spoken with these last few days have yet to learn of the Iowa Tea Party Meet in Waukee. Governor Sarah Palin will give the keynote address on Saturday, Sept 3. This is the 3 year anniversary of Gov. Palin’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in 2008. I and many others were excited to hear Governor Palin 3 years ago, and are eager to hear what the Governor has to say 3 years later. It should prove to be an event we will always remember, and I am especially glad to be able to enjoy it with fellow Texans, and with friends throughout the country. Jelayne and I have done everything we can to make this a very special trip that you will always remember.

For details of the trip please visit www.PalinDefender.com, e-mail: jelaynesessler@gmail.com or phone Jelayne Sessler direct at 817-456-2130.

Join us. We look forward to your company!

Blazing a Trail to Restoration: Texas Group to Travel to Iowa

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Follow This!

On the 1st of September, if you see this logo (at left) going past on the back of a van,  you may wish to follow it.  It will be on it’s way from Southeast Texas to a special event in Iowa.  Of the all of good reasons to set out for Waukee, Iowa, few could be better than to see Governor Sarah Palin deliver the keynote address at the “Restoring America Rally” hosted by the Tea Party of America, set for September 3rd.   It’s likely to be a very large event, but so far from home, you might not think Texans would bother  to make the long trip.  Of course,  if you’re not a Texan you might not know our gritty determination.  One group from the Southeast  Region of TexasO4Palin is determined to get there on time, and is putting together a caravan.

I talked with the Region’s coordinator, Donna Galloway, and she told me they intend to have a great time.  They’re calling it the Restoration Roadtrip, and they mean business, but like almost every Texan, they know how to make anything fun.

If  you’re interested in getting in on their little roadtrip, contact them here:  setexas4palin@gmail.com

It seems as though more and more Texans are getting involved in supporting Sarah Palin every day. If you’re from the Southeast Region of Texas, and you’re as frustrated as most at what’s been happening in our country, this is your chance to get in there and make a difference in the direction of our nation.  The title of the event says it all.  Come out and help your fellow Texans makes this event a rousing success.  For more details, please see this site.  I’ve been told that other groups in support of Sarah Palin are planning similar things, so check back for updates. I’ll post new information as it becomes available.
