    Take your camera again too. We want to document our efforts. Hopefully this will be the firest of many monthly meetings in Shreveport and the start of a new LOCAL Chapter.

    I wish I could make the Shreveport meeting to help generate some local (well... "area") interest, but I work 4-12.

    Don't forget that tonight is meeting night. There's the regular business meeting in LaPlace as well as a meetup in Shreveport as members there try to get to know each other and organize. LOCAL is growing and you can be a part of a group dedicated to educating others about our rights and supporting those rights.
    We've had some bad weather lately so it's a good time to get out of the house. Grab up the wife and kids and head to the IHOPs for some social time with your fellow Open Carry advocates.

    The meetings went well tonight. The LaPlace meeting had 8 people attend including 2 new OCers who just discovered out group this week. The meeting in Shreveport had 11 people attend and they will be having regular monthly meetings there now. Looks like they will be forming a LOCAL chapter up there.
    Congrats to LOCAL member Speedy Mercer for organizing a successful meetup in Shreveport.
