    Date is ok, I work in Pueblo West so it's a trek up there.. and i'm about 1.5 hours from home once I get to CR.. so it'd be a tad better on a weekend for me anyway.

    Howdy Amigo!
    One of our members was going to research where to have a meet and greet in Castle Rock. I've waited for him to respond with a location.
    It was my intention to visit Castle Rock this week to find a good venue where we can gather.

    How about meeting up with me tomorrow (Tuesday) and perhaps we can plan a meet-up.
    Saturday will work better for most folks. Just an FYI.

    PM me if you'd like to meet to run around town and check on places to hold us a meet and greet.

    Blessings,
    M-Taliesin

    The only reason I mentioned Red Robin is because I have OCed there recently and no one even gave me a second look. They saw but were unconcerned. As for a date.....as long as its a weekend....I do not mind

    I'll try and make it once a details have been nailed down. It shouldn't be a problem.

    Once the place/time has been determined, should the manager be given a heads-up? Don't want a bunch of people carrying (even though it's legal) to alarm the staff.

    Howdy Pardner!
    When I host a M&G, I always make a point of discussing it with the management. They like that 'heads-up' so they can plan to have sufficient tables and chairs to accomodate a group of folks. They really like knowing how many to expect in advance so they can plan for a group that, last time around, came close to 20 souls.
    The M&Gs I've hosted never seemed to be worried about a "bunch of people" carrying, and doesn't seem to be much of an issue. They just want to know what to expect in terms of customers showing up all at once so they can provide a pleasant (and somewhat planned) dining experience.

    Blessings,

    I'm in, assuming I'm free and my wife gets out of the hospital soon. But if it's next week we should be ok.

    Depending on time I may be able to make it, work is extremely busy right now though, even on the weekends.

    Guys,

    I'm the one M-T referred to & have been absent recently.

    I have confirmed a potential site for a M&G in the Castle Rock area. I just spoke to management this morning & he would be happy to have us. They are a small family owned restaurant that serves an American, Mexican & Greek menu that is not too expensive. They have an area of the restaurant he would give us so we can have our usual interactions without creating too much impact on the masses.

    The restaurant is Pegasus Restaurant in downtown Castle Rock. It is at 313 Jerry Street 80104. This is about 5 minutes off either the Plum Creek Exit 181 coming from the South or Wolfensberger Exit 182 coming from the North.

    Map Link - http://binged.it/Ol6UIS

    Given some past feedback, the most requested time was on a weekend. This combined with Saturday afternoons are good for the hosting restaurant.

    So, all said & not to to hard on the OP, I propose we do a M&G on Saturday, August 4th at 2p. If this looks good for everyone, I'll confirm the date with the restaurant.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks & sorry I was so slow on getting this together.

    JSK

    Don't want to step over you but Since i kinda started this last night i ran with it today

    I took my CCW claas with Franktown Firearms today an Sean, the owner, came up with the idea of having a Barbacue M&G at his store in Franktown on the 4th . He has a big area outdoors plenty of room for a big get together

    I really like the Idea

    So I'd like to stop this thread I started and let Sean start a new one announcing his M&G at Franktown Firearms on AUG 4th noon

    I know you are both trying to help and its appreciated..
    MY OPINION:
    I don't really care to go to a firearms dealer to have an OC meet and greet, I'd rather be out in the community where we can talk to the 'average Joe' .. Also, being so far from me.. I'd like to eat.. :P

    Anyway, let me know what the final decision is.. and I'll make mine then..

    Tonight cch10k & I spoke. Given the potential conflict for dates, we decided to let the group speak. We can do one location this month & the other later. Tell us what you want to do in August. He & I will go whatever way the majority chooses.

    Please tell us what you want.

    you might want to move the responses to the other thread. Either way you choose, no heartburn.


    Thanks.

    Hi all. I posted on the other thread already. Just let me know what you want to do. We were not aware until today that others were already planning a meet and greet, and we thought we would offer up a barbecue to all who wanted to come. Our goal is not to be "just another firearms dealer" and we have been well received by the community and we have a lot of room outdoors to accommodate people with. Just let us know what you all want do do, and we can run with it. Have a good night everyone!

    No offense taken. We just want to offer a place that can accommodate a lot of people so that we can all discuss things and have a good time. There have been so many people that have started to open carry when I offer them my shop as a publi place to practice doing so. There have been a lot of interested people that have found out about opencarry these past few months to say the least... On a side note, should someone maybe merge these two threads that are discussing the meet and greet?
