All poker players in the D.C. area or who are coming out for the fly-in are invited to take part in the rally. PPA executive director John Pappas teased that there might be good news to announce about progress on the congressional level.
Greg Raymer, the 2004 World Series of Poker main event champion and a member of the PPA board of directors, will be attending the rally. Pappas said he hopes a few Congressmen friendly to the cause might come out, as well.
The PPA also will be holding a reception Tuesday evening that will include some card tables for playing poker. More details on the reception will be available at the rally.
The PPA is flying out 30 of its state directors to join its D.C. staffers in meeting with federal representatives throughout the day. PPA members are encouraged to set up their own meetings at the local state or D.C. offices of their Congressional representatives for Tuesday. Here are the PPA instructions on how to schedule such meetings. The PPA asks that anyone who secures a meeting let it know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
