On YouTube is the "Ron Paul Underdog" video. The Underdog movie will be out in Pittsburg on August 3. Ron Paul will be in Pittsburgh on August 3. Coincidence? I think not.

Would be nice if they listed a time for the event.

I'll update the blog posting. The time is 8 to 10 pm.

This was so hot -- the time was not yet known.

I don't like to see too much hype before events such as this. But, it is nice to know others are being invited.

I took a field trip up to Cranberry this evening and began laying the foundation for upcoming events. I checked out the venue, and checked out the area. Here is where we are at this moment.

1) We have arranged for discount lodging at the Comfort Inn adjacent to the Sheraton for visiting guests. We are working also to arrange discount rates at the Motel 6 as well as potentially the Holiday Inn Express.

2) Buses are being chartered from Philadelphia and Harrisburg to attend this event. We expect anywhere between 50 and 100 people total from these groups alone to be present.

3) Cleveland, Columbus, and Buffalo are also going to be sending sizable contingents. Invitations have been sent out to Detroit, Washington, New York, and Chicago as well. The more people come, the bigger the media coverage, and this event is growing.

4) We have booked an after party. There is a place called Hereford and Hops that is a nice brewhouse that can accommodate probably 300 people, and we can have the Organizers, Supporters, and Everyone Gather there after the rally. The bar in the hotel was small, and would not have been appropriate for such a large and festive gathering. I am going to bust my ass to see that Ron and his family comes and spend time with us there celebrating for at least a while!

5) We will need drivers who can shuttle people between these venues (all within a two mile radius and five minutes driving time). If you have a van, that is ideal. I want everyone to enjoy themselves and meet different people who are supporting Ron.

6) A press release has been drafted and will be issued to local media to spread awareness of the event. There should be print, radio, and tv members present.

7) We are attempting to reach as many GOP Committee people as possible to maximize the impact of our message. If you know anyone, bring them out.

8) Members have begun spreading the word in every place they can. We need to continue and expand this. If you can think of a good way to let more people know, do it. If you need more help, talk about, and we'll do it. This should be the focus now. Get as many people as possible to hear Ron speak!

That covers the majority of what is upcoming. We're working hard to make this a really big deal. Bring who you can and spread the word.
