Went down for the rally just got back. A good turnout plus a lotta hope for the future. People are hurting and they came from near and far to push for reform. let's hope and pray that it comes soon. Lots of families are depending on it.

Just got home. It was a very positive day. Many Senators and Congressmen came out of their offices and from votes to speak. I think once Capt.TB or Capt. Adam have a chance to digest what happened they will post a complete report.

The fact that when we arrived there were only 3 sponsors of the Senate version, but 6 or 7 Senators spoke, would seem to me we are making progress.

I was on the Sportsman's Center bus, real nice group. Saw some old friends and made some new ones. J B Kasper from the Trenton Times was also aboard so he should have a spin on what happened alsoin one of his next columns.

I had the pleasure of joining the Grumpy's Bait and tackle bus trip to the Washington Rally. The guys deserve a big thank you as they not only priced the trip at only $20 per but had movies down and back as well as great food and drinks, etc. I am sure they spent a lot of their own money on this trip. If we had a lot more businesses like this we would have had even better attendance. I don't want to take anything away from the other businesses that organized bus trips to the rally as they also went above and beyond. Thanks to everyone that helped make this rally a success.

It was so exciting to see so many allies from allllll over the country at the rally today!! I took a bunch of pictures with my camera phone and posted them on our Twitter page from the march: http://twitter.com/GamblerFishing (scroll down and click the blue links)

I took a lot more pictures with my nice Canon camera, but I'm too exhausted to upload and post them all now. Hopefully I can get them online tomorrow or the next day. Let's start writing those letters!!
