    A message from Doug Hicks, United VP for Communications:

    Dear United supporters,

    Earlier this week, Kevin Payne asked for your support in e-mailing and calling state and county lawmakers with messages of support for our stadium proposal in Prince George's County. You responded with a deluge of e-mails that has dwarfed anything Annapolis has ever witnessed. It is truly moving the needle for us and we'll forever appreciate the passion, the creativity and the effort you all continue to display in support of our organization on the field and off.

    We're again asking for your support next Tuesday in Annapolis. While we know that many of you have work obligations, we're asking our supporters, that are able, to join us at hearings before the House Appropriations Committee and Senate Budget and Taxation Committee. Our fans will gather at 12 noon at Annapolis City Dock, which is the harbor front park at the end of the boardwalk in downtown Annapolis. People should park at meters or the city garage on Duke of Gloucester Street. Typing Susan Campbell Park, Annapolis, MD into google maps will give you the exact location.

    The hearing mentioned is the first and, perhaps, most important step as the state legislature considers the bills that will enable D.C. United to contract with the Maryland Stadium Authority to build a new stadium in Prince George's County. The hearings begin at 1:00 p.m. Our collective presence is hugely important.

    Those wishing to travel en masse to Annapolis may gather at RFK Stadium. A caravan will leave Lot 5 at 11:00 a.m.
    In the meantime, please continue to send e-mails via this link (https://secure.dcunited.com/stadium). They do make a difference. We're also encouraging fans to write and call Governor O'Malley (http://www.governor.maryland.gov/mail/), Lt. Governor Brown (http://www.governor.maryland.gov/mail/ltdefault.asp), and the Secretary of State's office (http://www.sos.state.md.us/ContactUs.htm).

    What: D.C. United Stadium Rally
    When: 12 noon, Tuesday, March 17
    Where: Annapolis City Dock, 1 Dock St., Annapolis, MD
    Who: D.C. United stadium supporters

    Thanks again for all that you do. D.C. United's great strength is the collection of players, staff and fans that make up our family. Together, we achieve great things.

    Sincerely,
    Doug

    The Barra Brava will be providing free transportation via bus to all DC United fans. You need not be a member of the Barra. To sign up call Oscar Zambrana at 571-594-3819

    The bus will leave from RFK stadium. This offer is good for the first 50 people that call and comfirm their attendance.

    Folks, the team is running free buses to and from RFK to Annapolis and is seeking a headcount from the heads of all the supporters groups to ensure that it has enough capacity.

    The buses will leave at 11 AM and return after the rally.

    You're free to just show up at RFK if you want, but if you know you want to go, let myself, Oscar, Dougg, or whoever know so that if the team needs to get more than one bus, it can.
