III Congress: King's Mountain

We met, some for the first time and some knew each other from other events.  It was a wonderful and patriotic group.

Alan led us through an excellent tour of the King's Mountain battlefield, and I commend to you all the story, for you will see many, many facets that have relevance for III Patriots today.  Here is the wiki link to the story as a starting point.

I am personally proud that I have added several people to the list of those I am proud to have met.

Delegates: I will order a batch of III Congress tabs and send one to each Delegate in good standing.  It'll be a month or so (usual turnaround) for them to make it to my shop, then I'll ship them out to you.

We all agreed that as a deliberative body our first official act should be a resolution that outlines our purpose and intent.  Over the next week I will compile a list of Delegates and we will begin a private email thread so we can work on our first resolution, refine it, and then publish.

We also agree that a very important goal to achieve is to have at least one Delegate from each state, and we'd be very pleased with delegations of multiple members from each state. 

We will need a formal structure, Patriots who will serve in important capacities to ensure the Congress evolves into the vibrant and effective entity we all want it to become.  We will work on this in private, as well.

For now, I am proud that we had our first meeting, and every single person in attendance was a Patriot committed to genuine Liberty.

There was general agreement that another meeting should be held out west in the near future, in a place that will be convenient for our Patriots who live west of the Mississippi.  For those of you who live in the western part of the country, please weigh in and offer suggestions for a location.  Personally, I really enjoyed and appreciated the relevance of King's Mountain, and hope we can find an equally relevant location for our next meeting.

Thank you to everyone who made it, and to everyone who wanted to be there.

I am convinced the III Congress can make a difference.

Any Delegates who would like access to this blog so you may write posts, please send an email to me and I'll add you to the access list:

Delegate: Idaho

III: April 19, 2013

Alan is familiar with King's Mountain and has taken point for getting us started on the 19th.

Muster Point: We'll meet at the Chronicle markers at the northeastern end of King's Mountain at 10:00am on April 19th. It is the start of the path around the mountain to the right of the bookstore/museum.

Alan will lead us on a tour of the battlefield and the significance of the story is relevant to us all in these days when America needs Her Patriots.

We can remain at the battlefield for a while and talk, then head to Charlotte for lunch.  We can do this in small groups, as a single group, or everyone can go their own way.

Alan has suggested a restaurant named Ri' Ra' for us to meet for dinner, where we can continue our discussions and generally get to know one another.

Personally I have no agenda for the weekend, beyond meeting you and working with you to begin to flesh out the role of the Congress that we can take online to finalize with our Delegates who can't make the trip.  This is a networking opportunity, a chance to build trust and add to our personal security by growing our network.  Everyone should consider the floor to be open for any topic they wish to discuss.

Firearms: I do NOT know what firearms laws obtain and if you are planning to carry, figure it out. 

Media: It is possible media may be there, so be prepared for that possibility.

Saturday Morning: We can discuss if people want to get together Saturday for breakfast.  I will be getting on the highway Saturday by noonish.

If you are planning to attend, please leave a note on this thread.  I know a few people have had to change plans, and no one should feel bad if life's realities are keeping you from attending.
