If you don’t already know, August Blitz/Fall Fury is an Alliance for Space Development/National Space Society/Space Frontier Foundation sponsored event which takes place in your home state. Like other congressional visits, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with your Represetative/Senators and their staff. Meetings will be scheduled around your availability. This event is perfect for those who couldn’t make it to the DC events.
