UIGEA 1 Year Later Tell Congress Face to Face
The PPA Needs You in Washington, DC.
Go All In To Protect Poker
On behalf of the Poker Players Alliance, I am pleased to invite you to join some of the world's top poker professionals and your fellow PPA members for a Policy Conference and two days of citizen lobbying in Washington DC on October 22-24. You have been selected for invitation to this important event because we need the support of your Member of Congress to implement our strategic plan.
As you know, legislation passed during the last Congress threatens our pastime, our passion and for many of us, our livelihood. Momentum is building, and we need you to join a select group of players to tell Members of Congress that poker is not a crime! The Congress must pass legislation that protects our ability to play poker online, at tournaments and at private games. And your participation is a key part of sending this message.
To keep the pressure on, the Poker Players Alliance will host a major Policy Conference in Washington on October 22-24. During this time you will have a chance to meet with Members of Congress who will vote on this important issue, and mingle with many of the best poker players and pros from across the United States.
In addition to a great conference, we will schedule a meeting with your Member of Congress and work with you to make sure they get the message that poker is a game of skill and that reasonable regulation is the best policy approach to Internet gaming.
Members of Congress need to hear from their constituents. Without you, the poker prohibitionists will continue to make the rules. With you, we can protect games of skill from unfair government interference.
If you plan to attend this historic event, send your name to firstname.lastname@example.org to get a registration form. We'll also send you information on reserving a hotel room at our PPA discounted rates

Proud to Play Poker,
Senator Alfonse D'Amato
