I just got the go-ahead to create a new local group for western NY, seceding from the central NY group. Wink The group is intended to cover the Buffalo, Niagara, and Rochester areas, as well as points southward. If you live in this region, I highly recommend to you our new email list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wnyfsp .

Also, watch this space for an announcement of an August meeting.

I'll be helping Keith (NHBound) man a table at the Vans Warped tour in Buffalo on 7/26. (See Western PA thread for more details.) We still need a couple more people, though, so let him or me know if you want to help.

There's a conference taking place at SUNY Buffalo and Amherst on Oct. 27-30, featuring some big-name speakers, including Richard Dawkins.  It's the 25th anniversary celebration of the Council for Secular Humanism, which, while definitely not a libertarian organization, is pro-separation of church and state.  If anyone plans to attend and would like a supply of FSP fliers to place strategically, let me know.  Wink

Here's some information I sent out a couple of weeks ago to all Western NY FSP participants & friends. Note the meeting tomorrow:

Dear Western New York Free State Project Participant or Friend:

I'm proud to announce the new Western New York Free State Project local
group! The Free State Project has been growing in this area, with two
recent outreach events. In July, we ran a table at the VANS Warped Tour in
Lake Darien and gave literature to hundreds of concert-goers. This week, I
gave a talk to about 20 students and faculty at SUNY-Fredonia. A speaking
engagement with the Libertarian Party of Monroe County (Rochester) is
also in the works for January.

I'd like to schedule our first get-together for Saturday November 12 at 2
PM at Caffe Aroma, 5229 Main St. in Williamsville (Erie County). We
will meet in the cafe side (not the trattoria). The phone number of the
restaurant is (716) 631-2687. We will discuss how the FSP can benefit
from relationships with other freedom-oriented organizations in the area
and get the latest news from New Hampshire. I hope to see many of you
there! In future, we will switch off meetings between Buffalo, Rochester,
and other locations, if and as popular demand warrants.

Please consider joining our email list, by going here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wnyfsp/

Best,
Jason

Sorry I missed you Slim... Did run into another Free Stater, though. Brought some flyers of my own but not nearly enough - had to have been 400 people there! Saw some Ron Paul shirts in the audience, overall seemed a decent bunch, maybe 60-40 theo/neocons to libertarian-ish sorts.

I did not notice any other free staters there, I was not expecting that many people to be at the tea party and had no problem handing out every flyer I had with me. I did try to be a little selective about who I offered flyers to. I targeted younger people, anyone that looked to be 60 or more I did not offer flyers to but a few asked for them and I gave them one.
