(Rally 'Round The Hounds)
You did it. You came out to Rally For the Ballpark on February 19, and you stayed to be among over 100 supporters at the public hearing before the Loudoun County Planning Commission. You made your presence felt and your voice heard, and you were mighty impressive in doing so. That night we cleared one more hurdle toward making the Ballpark at One Loudoun a reality, and we are that much closer to the finish line (and the start of something great).
You did it, and we thank you. Now we're humbly asking if you can keep on helping us by doing it again, at a public hearing before the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors -- the nine officials whose vote will decide this whole thing -- on March 25 at Farmwell Station Middle School in Ashburn.

That was the Planning Commission. This is the Board of Supervisors. It's an arduous, agonizing process -- representative democracy is messy, you know -- and we're doing everything possible to be comprehensive, punctual and considerate. These are all steps in the right direction; we just need to take all those steps, can't jump over any.
Bring the family in HoundsGear to express your support. Bring your hopeful Little Leaguer in local uniform. Bring your sports-loving neighbors and your music-loving siblings. Bring the kids for a real-life civics lesson (just what they'll want on the first day of Spring Break).
We asked you to bring it on February 19, and you did. We respectfully ask that on March 25, you bring it again. Thank you, HoundsNation.
