Oakland has supported the A's for 38 years, and this rich history cannot be compromised. A's fans have celebrated and suffered with this team, and almost two generations of A's fans have lived with their team playing Oakland. Help Keep the A's in Oakland and fight the move.

CHOOSE OR LOSE THE A'S

Robert Limon is organizing a forum on the A's plan to relocate, to suggest ways to stop the move and discuss the possibility of a move. I encourage people to attend the forum whether or not you are for or against the Fremont deal. Here's the plan in his own words:
I am a lifelong Oakland community member and A's fan. My friends and I have been frustrated that it is the 11th hour and we are very close to losing the Oakland A's. We are frustrated that no one seems to be expressing our point of view, and no one is taking action to keep the A's. Personally, I think having a world-class championship sports team in our community is a fantastic community resource and asset that benefits our business and property values. I want to see a common sense solution invented by the brilliant minds of Oakland citizens and leaders to facilitate and implement the construction of a new stadium in Oakland.

Now it's YOUR turn to express your opinion on the future of the A's in Oakland.

I have begun a community project and a documentary film called "Choose or Lose the Oakland A's" which is based on giving EVERY Oakland/East Bay community member a chance to voice their opinion whether they choose or lose the A's. Bottom line: The Oakland community needs an outlet to express their perspective to keep the A's in Oakland (or not). No matter how it turns out, I will know that I let my voice be heard.

We are going to kick off this community project with a Mayoral Community Forum on May 23, 2006 (Tuesday) from 5:30-7:30 PM at the Uptown Bar and Nightclub, 1928 Telegraph (at 19th), in downtown Oakland. Please see attached flyer. The future mayor of Oakland will respond to the same question: CHOOSE OR LOSE the Oakland A's? And Why?

I humbly request two things:
1. You show up to this event, share your opinion, and have some FUN.
2. You forward this info and invite all of your friends to this event; and/or contact me to get a flyer and distribute.

Now is the time--Take Action! Seize the Day! Choose or Lose the Oakland A's.

Thank you and best regards,

Robert Limon

I can not attend this meeting because I won't be back in the Bay Area until early June, but I urge people to go and participate. Print off some flyers and bring them to the meeting. Copy and send this Robert's message to your friends email.

Drummer 510,

Do you have any ideas, if people can't make it to this discussion. I'm willing to help at the idea plus I'll try to email to other members of OAFC or creator of this discussion.

LET'S GO OAK-LAND!!

I live in Berkeley and I can not see travelling to Fremont to go to games. So Wolf may as well move them to the moon. I understand he needs some approvals from Alameda County as well as the City of Fremont. I think all residents of Alameda County should contact the Board of Supervisors and demand that the county not facilitate a move within the county outside of Oakland.

Anonymous, you don't get it.

What you essentially want to tell Wolff is "You're staying in Oakland, so deal with it!" That's no way to keep the A's.

Admittedly, there will be many fans who'll never travel to Fremont. But the majority of A's fans will, and those that want the team to stay in Oakland need to come to grips with that.

On OAFC, Eyleen wrote a post about this event. She mentioned turnout was good and there was civil discussion. De La Fuentes and Dellums had video messages as did the Wolff. Hopefully, events like these can continue, and also help out Robert Limon on his video even some drum beats as background music would be great help, too.

Hi:
I am the founder of www.Femmefan.com, the web's premier site for women who are avid sports fans.

As I read about the low attendance numbers for the A's it strikes me that perhaps the A's as an organization could do more to promote itself to its female fans and thereby raise attendance plus they could maximize revenue bypromoting and selling their ladies apparel.

I am working on a "www.Femmefan.com Nite with the A's" as a way to partner with the A's and give them an opportunity to recognize their loyal female fans.
I am hoping you might help get the word out about this event.
I am still hoping to get he A's to provide some pre-game perks, and they may be more open to the idea if interest on the part of its female fan base is voiced.
Can you help me get the word out?
At this point all I have is the date, Tuesday September 19 vs Cleveland.
