    Lightbulb Let's start a Fredericksburg OC get-together!

    Any other Fredericksburg OCers interested in getting together for a meal (breakfast, dinner, whatever works)?

    Depending on scheduling, I'd drive to Fredericksburg for a get-together.

    We've had a couple at Clearwater Grill, on Rte 3 near Lake of the Woods, but nothing recently.

    We had a pretty good turnout in Culpeper a bit over a year ago. I'd certainly try to attend!

    That was a good turnout. I was there and I remember you being there, too.

    We will go if I'm not stuck in the fire station.

    Great!

    What are some OC-friendly restaurants you all like?

    I haven't been back in years so you'd need to confirm they are still in business but we used to meet at Chiang's Bistro on Plantation Drive.

    Chinese and Thai food. Won some restaurant awards for food quality.

    I would join in. I haven't tried to OC at too many eateries here locally. We should check to Logan's steakhouse by the mall.

    How about the Pancho Villa in the Central Park Shopping Center? If I don't have to be in court that day, I'd almost certainly show up. I don't like Longhorn anymore - last time we had one of these in Richmond at the Longhorn, I ordered and was charged for NY Strip and got "flatiron" - and my complaint was ignored with sort of a "oh, well".

    Pancho Villa is always a good idea!

    I have some old friends I have been meaning to visit up there. If I happen to be in town I will make the hike up there.

    I edited my post. I meant Logan's.

    I live in Fredericksburg, and today was the first time that I ever did OC. I would love to meet others.

    There is this event that is coming up:

    I suspect the time should read 5pm -8pm rather than am.....
    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.

    Does anyone think that it would be worthwhile to start a Fredericksburg open carry group on www.meetup.com ?

    Why do you want to take the matter out of OCDO?

    For some, the use of social media may be all whiz-bang and even easier to deal with, but unless you know something I do not it takes away a sense of community within OCDO. Go outside OCDO and there will be little chance that others not in your social media circle will know of you or have the opportunity to join any of your activities.

    There is a reason folks do not elect to use all the bells and whistles out there.

    stay safe.

    While I hope to get to the VCDL dinner, I would like to see something semi-regular in Fredericksburg, so I'll keep watching this until there's a consensus. For my part weekends are usually available. Weekdays I have to go to bed early because I get up at 0340.
