Ohio Delegates Arrive

Tomorrow–Thursday, July 2–is the date of our first caucus in Orlando. Delegates have been arriving for several days, and tonight Ohio delegates gathered in the Sheraton’s Majestic Palm Room for Ohio Night, an annual reception for Ohio delegates and their guests.

To keep in touch with our delegates and friends this year, we’re going to use two main channels: this blog and Twitter. I’ll be Tweeting @NEOEAXD and using the hashtag #NEOatNEA.

Tomorrow evening I expect to post my first “Notes from Camp” for this RA. For more about the “Notes from Camp” series, check the “meta-post” located here.

Our email server seems to have a problem this evening, so I’ll post here the following communication for NEOEA delegates that was originally intended as an email to them. (But now you know that we won’t be sending emails like this, just posting to this blog and Tweeting to direct people to the post.)

Coming up on the schedule tomorrow, Thursday, July 2:

  • Tomorrow morning, the second Ohio caucus starts mercifully late at 7:30 in the Majestic Palm Ballroom. Before or during the caucus, stop by the NEOEA table to get your receipt packet.
  • You’ll also be able to pick up a seatback cover if you’d like one. Please have a $10 deposit, which we’ll refund on Monday when you hand back your seatback cover.
  • After the state caucus, we’ll hold a brief NEOEA caucus in a corner of the Majestic Palm Ballroom.
  • At 11:00 tomorrow morning, I’ll be leading a Parliamentary Briefing in (where else?) the Majestic Palm Ballroom. We should be done by noon.
