That's what I'm trying to find out Seems especially important since Phoenix is where freedom is headquartered but I can't seem to find anything going on.

OK I just put the word out to the people I know to see if we can get any numbers. There are some great press kits available for this but they'd pretty much have to be sent out asap. Before alerting the media, I want to see if we can actually get any bodies.

So roll call for Phoenix nurse at the PHX airport 10 AM Tuesday:

me?

At some point, you just need to commit, even if the only one you can count on, is yourself.

It seems like there are a few here, and on the Yahoo list, so just go ahead and do it.

Janice, my problem with committing in Phoenix is the location. Since it is the headquarters of Freedom it seems like we need more than 1 definite and about 8 mabyes. I'm afraid the media is going to scrutinize PHX closely because the of the Mesa Air connection.

I haven't contacted media. I havne't had anything printed. Don't know that anyone else has either. I have asked for a roll call at MDC, my large local AP groups (told them to ask everyone they know), the lactivist group that got the law changed in Arizona and even my local Roots & Shoots group. I have one or two definite and a handful of maybes.

Unless you have a really specific reason to get there early. Everyone else will be there at 10AM.

Good luck Mamas! Kate is still pretty unhappy after the dentist appt. today - I'm going to be a no-show - but my mom (a Mesa employee) is trying to get there!

Forwarding for Michelle, who is tracking Phoenix:

If anyone was at Sky Harbor this morning but didn't get to sign in to
the roster, please email me with your contact info so we can include
you in the head count. Karen mentioned that there were a couple of
moms that left early, before the sign-in sheet had made the rounds.

Thanks!
