    West Michigan Open Carry Picnic

    Would there be interest for a picnic / potluck at a greater Grand Rapids park? Also anyone know of a park that would be well suited to this i.e. easy to get to? I would very much be interested in this and would be willing to supply hot dogs and buns ( within reason )

    That it is... I'm hoping to get a full time job in my career field (went to college for Six years)... been applying for jobs for 2+ years... until then I'll keep working to two jobs to pay the bills...

    Looking forward to the event

    I raised a son, and I can say that after he arrived, life was FAR from normal LOL. But he is a blessing none the less.
