Omni has open and closed lots and also will allow for busses to be parked there as well, you are not required to be a guest.

2017-06-16 20:03:10 UTC  

We can probably shuttle people in, but the shuttles will need to be parked closeby. Omni should work if that's the case.

2017-06-16 20:03:21 UTC  

@everyone It's absolutely critical that you not mill about in small groups, you'll get overtaken

2017-06-16 20:03:43 UTC  

every possible effort should be made to link up as soon as possible, shuttling is probably the best bet

2017-06-16 20:04:08 UTC  

@MadDimension Darden towe may possibly be packed that day I can check on the park schedules. Soccer games and other sports there. I was thinking Omni for Private or Clark School for public parking.

2017-06-16 20:05:29 UTC  

Also, Monticello high school has sizable lots and is about a 5 min drive (straight shot) from the downtown mall and outside city limits.

2017-06-16 20:05:51 UTC  

What about the McDonald's and Staples parking lots?

2017-06-16 20:06:23 UTC  

The Parking Garage at Carver Rec is open to the public as well

2017-06-16 20:06:30 UTC  

They have both started to crack down on parking.

2017-06-16 20:06:52 UTC  

I was just going to mention Carver. It ultimately all depends on if there are any other events.

2017-06-16 20:07:03 UTC  

2017-06-16 20:07:30 UTC  

We need to make a list of solid parking locations. Carver should be #1. What else?

2017-06-16 20:07:33 UTC  

Should be okay early on a Saturday

2017-06-16 20:08:01 UTC  

There are the water street and market street garages

2017-06-16 20:08:19 UTC  

those are the closest

2017-06-16 20:09:31 UTC  

Water street lot between the metered lot and garage is closed down for the farmers market on Saturday's people start crowding that area heavily at 7am or earlier.

2017-06-16 20:09:41 UTC  


2017-06-16 20:09:43 UTC  

good to know

2017-06-16 20:10:09 UTC  

Look for somewhere 10 minutes outside of town that people could park cars at

2017-06-16 20:10:29 UTC  

Downtown parking should be for all the vans we can muster primarily, secondarily for POVs

2017-06-16 20:10:36 UTC  

There are a number of garages at the uni

2017-06-16 20:12:00 UTC  

I've never crowd funded anything. Is there a fee to just opening a request?

2017-06-16 20:12:00 UTC  

There are lots of people who like what we are doing that aren't going. What if we just started wesearcher requests. Some could be for crazy stuff (like a helicopter for Antifa rides). It would be funny and some of them might actually get funded. That would make planning much easier.

2017-06-16 20:12:41 UTC  

@Tyrone Not just to open, but WeSearcher takes something like 15% off the top.

2017-06-16 20:13:41 UTC  

I feel like garages would be unsafe if we have a pack of ferals following us. Or just generally unsafe since the entirety of Charlottesville will know about our presence this time. Idk. I made a point to find street parking about 10-15 minutes walking distance from where we were demonstrating last time.

2017-06-16 20:14:20 UTC  

The Carver parking garage is a 5 minute walk from the event and should be safe

2017-06-16 20:14:32 UTC  

So how much does it cost to rent a helicopter for the day?
Add 15% plus the initial fees

2017-06-16 20:14:57 UTC  

If we hit that it would be fun News to put out into the tubes

2017-06-16 20:15:07 UTC  

Plus its free. Market Street and Water Street garages are an option as well for those willing to play for parking

2017-06-16 20:15:35 UTC  

For parking outside of town I would definitely suggest Monticello high school. (For shuttling)

2017-06-16 20:15:38 UTC

"Fascist Alt-Right rally is renting a Helicopter with extra fuel for one day Rally"

2017-06-16 20:16:19 UTC  

All implicit. 100% message achieved.

2017-06-16 20:16:45 UTC

2017-06-16 20:18:36 UTC  

@Erika last time was a flash mob style event with almost no leftist presence

2017-06-16 20:18:52 UTC  

This will be more similar to Berkeley in size"scope

2017-06-16 20:19:18 UTC  

Since its summer all the shit heel leftists possible will be bussing in

2017-06-16 20:19:36 UTC  

DC, Baltimore, Philly, Pittsburgh

2017-06-16 20:19:37 UTC  

Do we have access to a bus or other high occupancy vehicle to shuttle our people in with?
