    Exclamation OC picnic at Memorial Park -- Otsego 10/6

    OC picnic at Memorial Park in Otsego, MI Oct 6th @ 2PM






    Michigan Open Carry, Inc is inviting you to join us for a picnic in the park in Otsego, MI. The park has a small pavilion with tables, more tables scattered about under the trees in shade, 3 grills, 2 playground areas, portable restrooms and baseball/basketball/tennis if you so choose. Events like these are a great way to learn more about open carry or if you have ever wanted to try open carrying but have been nervous this is your chance to start by being around others who will be openly carrying as well. These events are always a good time and if you know someone who is curious about open carry or would just like to come along feel free to bring whoever you would like, these events are open to the public and you need not be a member to join us. Children are also welcome to these events as well, so bring your family, bring your friends and come too what will most likley be the last outdoor event on the west side untill the spring.

    Details.

    Where:

    Otsego Memorial Park
    S Farmer St, Otsego, MI 49078
    (MAP) http://mapq.st/UgAhQ1

    When:

    Saturday October 6th @ 2PM


    We hope to see plenty of you there, If you have any questions please feel free to contact myself at adamsryan182@yahoo.com or simply reply in this thread.

    Forgot to mention the pavilion only has 2 or 3 tables so depending on how many show up you may want to bring a chair if you have one. And I can bring the following Items

    Charcoal
    Grill fork/tongs
    Steaks
    Buger & buns
    Hotdogs & buns
    Ketchup
    Mustard
    Relish
    Assortment of chips

    If anyone else comming would like to bring some plates/cups, plasticwear, drinks, and other dishes to pass would be appreciated

    Oh, I will also be bringing sexy back.
    The worst weapon is the human mind, its created and done things far worse than a gun can, has, or ever will. Its the human mind that tells the gun what to do and animates the inanimate object.

    With all these gun control laws in place I have yet to find a single one that has saved someones life, but I can find hundreds of stories where a gun has.

    Well I'm going to head up shortly and hold the pavillion. The weather is not optimal but it looks like we will top out at maybe 50 and the clouds look like they may breakup a little bit. What a beautiful fall day

    School?

    St.Margret's school is right by that location, so I am assuming that it is 1,000 feet away from the park?

    A good, if chilly, time was had by all!

    Fortunately, no one had the bad taste to LGOC!

    The 1000 foot FGFSZ I believe shouldn't have come into play here, seeing as either through a CPL or PP one would have aquired a "license to carry" Sorry I don't know exactly what the cite is but I'm sure someone has it handy.

    LGOC? Long Gun Open Carry? If so, that's not in bad taste whatsoever, and makes me wonder who made you a moderator...

    LGOC is against forum rules. You may want to read them, some time.

    http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/misc.php?do=showrules

    That's why I'm a moderator.

    We get too many attention ****** on this forum, already.

    Must have overlooked that absurd rule, a firearm is a firearm. Pretty worthless forum now that I have read all the rules and restrictions.

    Have a good day.

    The fact that your posts about LGOC were deleted was kinda a hint about being off topic.

    I thought it might have pertained something to do with YouTube®, either way, how would you people have treated my friends and I if we were to have went to this little event? Both with CPL and open carrying rifles? Doesn't seem like y'all would have been too friendly...

    Nope, I would have left immediately. I have no interest in becoming part of someone's LEO baiting fantasy.

    You could always start your own forum for OCing long arms.... its pretty simple. Go for it!

    Haha! Yes, I sure would hope so! More burgers and grub for the people who don't tend to be snobbish.

    Have a good one.

Thank you though, because next time one of these events is held in my proximity I will be attending with one of the rifles I own; perhaps one that looks to be fully automatic as well. Not in hopes of attracting police officers, but in hopes of detouring people with attitudes as your own. Anymore assumptions you would like to make about people who open carry rifles, mister moderator?
    The baiting comment i suspect has more to do with the video you posted than anything else. just an opinion though.
