Saturday, October 29, from 1PM to 4PM Central Time
Please join us Saturday afternoon for a "gathering of the grizzlies." Grizzly Fest will be an historic online summit for Gov. Palin supporters as we map out a positive agenda of reform for the future of the republic. We will celebrate what we've accomplished in the past, but we won't break any arms trying to pat ourselves on the back. As Palin supporters, we realize that we have a serious responsibility to work to help the governor achieve the restoration of America. We will brainstorm on where we need to be going in the year before the 2012 elections and beyond.
At the conclusion of our online event, we hope Palin supporters who join us will understand the strengths of the movement, the impact we had in the 2010 midterm elections, the Reagan-Palin conservative principles that unite us, and our potential to influence future elections and policies at all levels of government.
Here's the Grizzly Fest Agenda:
Panel 1: Success of the Movement So Far – 1-2PM Central Time
Tammy Bruce, conservative radio host and author

This panel will discuss the historic nature of the Palin movement, both in the blogosphere and in organizing, and the impact Palin supporters had on the historic 2010 midterms. Plus, what potential we have to make a difference in 2012.

Steve Bannon, film producer and radio host
