    April 27th... if I'm not working yet, I'd like to find a way there.

    As I'm not working, I can't afford to drive/take anyone (Silverado is a gas hog) but if I can ride along with someone, I'd do what I can to chip in for gas.

    Give me a little time so that we get where you can catch buses and or vans in and right around Allegheny county.

    Several of the ACSL sportsmen clubs will be have group rides available on a first sign up get a seat saved for them.

    Dormont-Mt.Lebanon Sportsmen's Club

    McDonald Sportsmen's Association

    McKeesport Sportsmen's Association - have a full size tour bus with a option to get a second one if they fill the first one up early enough.

    Pitcairn-Monroeville Sportsmen's Club, Inc.

    A few more were also talking about doing them as well

    Will update this post with information, cost is 35 bucks to get you there and back they will be leaving in the 4am to 5am time depending on where they are leaving from
    - still need to get who to contact

    WhiteFeather, I would be interested in going on one of the buses but cannot confirm 100% I will be able to at this time. As the date gets closer I will get back in touch and confirm you have seating available for 2.

    I might be going with my dad so we would have 2 extra seats. It is pretty likely that we will go. I live on the south side of town in Carrick so if you need a ride send me a PM.

    Everyone should have gotten the email blast with the group numbers.

    Remember, this interactive lobbying session is the most important part of this process. Showing up is nice, but taking real ACTION and doing something is what multiplies our efforts and makes for real results.

    If your from PGH, esp if you have Rep Frankle , look for group #18.

    Team #18 will be visiting
    Dan B. Frankel D
    Joseph A. Petrarca D
    Michael P. McGeehan D
    Steve Santarsiero D
    Edward G. Staback D
    Nick Kotik D
    John Pippy R (Senator)
    Donald White R (Senator)

    If one of these is your Rep's make sure to come with.
