I'm sure many of us here remember the Melbourne Rally on 9/27/2016. It was early on in the campaign, but in our heart we knew, even then, he'd win.

Good morning, You Deplorables.

I apologize for the error above. The Melbourne Rally on 9/27/2016 was at the end of the campaign. Many of us do remember the rallies that kicked off his campaign, and by September 2015, many of us here knew he'd win.

I had the good fortune of seeing President Trump up close as a volunteer when he came to the Bloomington, IL Airport in the Spring of 2016.

Folks, every nook & cranny on the entire Melbourne Airport, around the hangar facility of the Trump Rally this coming Saturday should be filled with thousands, upon thousands of POTUS, Donald J. Trump supporters. Go Donald J. Trump & Go, United States Of America.....the American Republic!!!

Send a clear message to Obama, Soros, the entire Democrat Party, the Obama/Clinton “hate America” Media that, come November, 2016 Mid-Term elections, the “Traitor/Turncoat” will die, politically!!!

Thousands showed up last time on 9/27/2016. Only 8500 were allowed inside. The media made you think there were only a few hundred.

He pulled up in his Trump plane. I’m wondering if he’s going to do the same thing, but this time with Airforce One. It’s a big enough runway where they could taxi to the hangar.

NOthing is greater than to watch Trump exit his plane, and walk the tarmac to the podium.

If I drink that coffee you’re offering, how will I ever get to sleep? ;). How wonderful. My day might even allow me to watch. Friday is my busiest day with the longest commute, but a) one child sick, and the other child’s teacher is sick, and b) STORMWATCH 2017. Meaning rain.

I am so glad I was able to watch live today for the second half of his presser. To morrow will be even better because he is speaking to us and doesn’t have to get disgusted by the media. Anyone going to the rally, have fun.

You are correct.....the Melbourne Airport runway is certainly long enough to handle a B747 landing & takeoff. I am also aware that the hangar can only hold about 8500 folks, but the ramp space around the hangar, can hold thousands more!!!

We need a massive, cheering turnout, positive, supporting throng for POTUS, Donald J. Trump!!! With a triangle of Daytona, Orlando, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Miami (Rubio & Calle Ocho)cities within an hour or so, of Melbourne....hundreds of thousands of Trumpsters can easily show up!!! Do it!!! Go POTUS, Donald J. Trump, Go American Republic!!! Destroy the entire Democrat “Hate America” Political Party of traitors & turncoats!!!

#MAGA ping. News13 will likely play it live for the locals who are house-bound. As Flounder said, "this is going to be great!"

Let me know if you want on or off this low volume ping list.

Had a great time at a Trump rally in Hershey, PA & we met very nice people. Hope they can keep the protesters/anarchists out of this rally.

Good morning,Nikos!

I am so pysched for this rally.

The press conference yesterday was epic.

The butthurt of the press resounds throughout the land.

Wikileaks clearly showed how the media was in the pocket of the DNC.

How dare they bellow that they alone are the gatekeeprs of truth and facts.

The old order will not be dismantled without a fight.

And yesterday, Trump showed us he is on the fight and he intends to keep fighting.

How can we do less?

Prayer is our shield, Trump is the spear and we are the shock troops.

We are TAKING our country back.

Snowflakes having tantrums will not deter us.

Protester in linked article says that she got two tickets but won't be going in. The left is far more organized now than during the campaign. I hope that there won't be disrupters inside, violent protestors anywhere or empty seats caused you people signing up with no intention of attending. Even during the campaign I thought there should be some type of small cost in order to have a record of who was getting the tickets.

I attended the Thank you rally in Hershey Pa. It was fabulous even though there was a huge mass of people waiting to get in, no formed line. We were all supporters trying to keep warm in extremely cold weather. Friendly conservatives are still polite in an informed crowd. It was so cold that there were no protestors. I hope they have plenty of security checkpoints and well formed lines before them tomorrow.

We are looking forward to this!

Last time he was at the Melbourne Airport ( during the campaign), I was out of town, but driving home and had entered the county.

As we got closer to Melbourne I could see the heavy storm clouds and lightning close to the airport and started praying for his plane

My friend was at the rally and told me it gave her goosebumps ......the crowd were in and outside of the hanger.....the weather was scary and dark......and all of a sudden the hanger doors open.....AND THERE IS THE TRUMP PLANE......and when he walked off and toward the people, she said it was ELECTRIFYING!

They provide more tickets than there are seats. I am sure there will be protestors, but they would need to be in line by now.

I hope you do too!

The doors open at 3....... but many will arrive much earlier

I heard the crowd will be massive......get there as early as you can......wear a hat or sunscreen.....you won’t be allowed to take a chair inside but you could purchase an inexpensive stool or sunchair you wouldn’t mind ditching......so you can sit on something during the wait.

Take a bag with water and fruit or protein bar for the wait.....which will be ditched too......maybe a book

I fully expect him to fly in, and taxi to the hangar in Air Force One. I don’t think any president has ever done that. OTOH, for security reasons they might not do it that way, although it seems that securing an airport would be easier than any other venue.

They had 8500 there last time and thousands more outside.

I suspect there will be over 20,000 people there tomorrow.

Not a bad idea...

I started God Bless America in a store once when a “jerk” was screaming at a soldier in uniform at the checkout!

Everyone stopped and joined in until the “jerk” waved his arms and finger at us and left to great applause.

The soldier stopped and thanked everyone as they exited the door!

Thanks for posting this info! After seeing the map and figuring out the issues with walking we decided to cancel. I have an artificial hip, and another in our group has other issues that would be a problem if it came to walking a long distance. So we will be content watching it on big screen TV and rooting with y’all from our chairs.

If anyone is looking for rooms, two just opened up at the LaQuinta at 4510 W. New Haven Ave. in Melbourne. We just released them.

Party on!

We tried to find info about buses, but saw nothing. You’d think the city would mention that as an option on their official site — which it seems they didn’t. That would’ve been great. I wonder if the city has issues with Trump, so is making it as hard as possible for people to attend. I’m not paranoid or anything, but you know how it is...

Thanks for the pingS. I wasn't able to get tickets, but I am going anyway. Numbers are important and a lot of people were standing outside the hanger during Trump's last visit. They were able to see the big screen and were able to hear Trump from outside. I'm sure there will be many who can't get in.

If you are up for a LONG walk, park on the west (?) side of the terminal. The other side of the terminal from where the hanger is located. Not in the pay parking area. Beyond that area. Easy in, easy out, but a long walk.

Ps, I don't have anyone to go with, so if someone wants to meet up, let me know.

We need numbers. There is an effort to get a lot more protesters out there than what showed up last time. NUMBERS! NUMBERS ! Even if it is only for a short time.
