    VCDL Picnic in Newport News announced!


    The VCDL cordially invites the general public to a picnic at the Riverview Park in Newport News, VA on September the 15th from 11 AM until 2 PM.

Food and drinks will be provided by the VCDL but attendees are encouraged to bring a dish to share if they so desire.

    VCDL president Philip Van Cleave and Delegate Brenda Pogge will be speaking at the picnic. Delegate Pogge carried an important bill for VCDL this year, which allows local government employees to keep their firearms in their private vehicles while at work.

    The Riverview Park is located at:'

    I'm there
    What do we bring?
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    Where are your priorities, man?

    You could explain to her that the ER in Newport News has delivered scads of babies without a whole lot of complications.

    I'll bring a blender so you can enjoy all the picnic goodies. You bring your favorite straw.

    stay safe.

    No worries, Magik Sack... I haven't caught a kid since the late 80's, but its like riding a bike...
    You never forget how.
    I'm sure there are a few other former or current EMT's that have some 'neo-nate' experience.
    I have three Stork Pins around here somewhere...
    Bring the Spousal Unit and we'll have a great time!

    Riverside Hospital is a little over 3 miles away and Mary Immaculate is about 4 miles.
    We look forward to meeting you. Hope you can make it.

    It's OK I'll grab an OB kit to bring with me. I'm an EMT and with MSC 45ACP assisting we can help her go from cc to oc.

    Maybe we can be godparents - that would give the new born a head start in life.

    So nice of y'all to have a picnic on mine and John's Birthday... Unfortunately, I'm going to be far far away from VA that day
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Confirmation instructions - send email


    Please confirm
    planned attendance by email to nnpicnic@vcdl.org.
    In the subject line type: Yes and the number of people included. Example: Yes - 2



    Remember though VCDL is supplying the primary food, drink and cake you may as always bring a covered dish or your "specialty" to share with others.

    This will likely be the last picnic of the summer - let's make it a big success.

    My birthday is 2 days after the picnic.

    Perhaps the VCDL Cake should be a birthday cake?

    So this will be my first picnic. Anyone want to clue me in as far as what to expect? I believe my wonderful fiancée will be making brownies for us, although she will not be able to attend due to work commitments.
