WHEREAS there are many MeFites in the DC and surrounding area, and
WHEREAS these MeFites are likely super happy right now about the election of Barack Obama to President of the United States, and
WHEREAS many more MeFites, their families and their friends may be making their way to DC to mark the historic occasion of the inauguration of Barack Obama,
I hereby request we start planning a huge meetup for this momentous day.
All in favor, say AYE.
Disclaimer: I am making this request from far away from the center of activity. I have plane tix and a place to stay for the duration, but have been out of touch w/ the DC scene for long enough that I don't have any great suggestions for a meetup location, especially a spot for a meetup that may potentially be pretty large. Locals, please hope me! I'll do whatever I can from my faraway location to make it happen once we settle on a time and place.
Also: If we can somehow assemble as a group for the parade/big moment itself, that would be awesome too, but perhaps a bit more of a challenge to organize.
