Thanks to all who have contacted me and shared the word about a Kossack meetup at the 2012 Democratic National Convention here in Charlotte, NC. Just wanted to confirm it is in the works!
If anyone else is interested and hasn't contacted me personally, there is still time. Send me a kosmail and preferred contact info, and I'll keep you in the loop.
To all those traveling here in the next few days: I hope your trip to the Queen City is safe and pleasant! Here's a spray of lovely orange flame azalea to welcome you to North Carolina.
My challenge right now is to find a good location. It has to be accessible on foot and open for business (many places are closed or hosting private events.) Tomorrow I'm planning to take a walk around uptown and scope out some possibilities in and near the convention center. The volunteer office may also have some suggestions.
I'm leaning toward Tuesday evening, but a breakfast or lunch meetup is also a possibility if that works for more people.
It is so exciting to see this actually happening after so many months of anticipation! Getting ready to crash, but will check back later Sat. morning. I'll leave you with a couple of shots of then-Senator Obama at a Charlotte rally in March, 2008. It's hard to imagine getting that close now!
