DSCN0804 (2)
All Virginia GOP roads lead to Harrisonburg this weekend where state Republicans will meet for their 2016 state convention at James Madison University. It will be bustling in the fair city north of my home with JMU students preparing for final exams and the Rocktown 2016 Beer & Music Festival that will take place Saturday afternoon in downtown Hburg. The complete Friday-Saturday convention agenda can be found at the bottom of this post.

This is a private event sponsored by the Republican Party of Virginia and is open to delegates who were voted 0n at local mass meetings earlier in the year, and their paying guests.

Bearing Drift will have a number of writers on site throughout the weekend. Don’t forget to join us Friday night at Wolfe Street Brewing for our ’80s Party featuring Bearing Drift’s Matt Hall and his 1980s play list.

President Ronald Reagan once said, “Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music.” In the spirit of President Reagan, Bearing Drift, the College Republican Federation Of Virginia, and VA NextGen GOP are teaming up to throw the best party of the 2016 RPV Convention: “Reagan Bush 84 Eighties Party!”

All RPV Convention attendees, both young and young-at-heart, are invited to join us on Friday, April 29th, at Wolfe Street Brewing from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. DJ Matt Colt Hall will be turning up the treble and laying down some of the best hits of the 80’s.

We hope to see you all there!
