    I'm trying to get a venue for an OC seminar...
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Perhaps Gander Mountain?

    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    I suspect you know Traverse City better than TheQ or I do, you could call around and see if a restaurant would be good for a lunch or find a venue with room for a seminar and then you could pass the info to TheQ as he is a very busy fellow.

    Shooters wants to charge us $30/hour. If they don't want to donate their conference room to the largest OC org and one of the largest gun orgs in the state -- who will bring many people into their store *shrugs*. We're not in the habbit of paying for space. Maybe someone local could change their mind?

    ive shot there a few times, its a nice range and would be nice to be able to offer the conference in a place people could also shoot but the few times ive been in there it seems as though they are looking at it as more of a business than lifestyle and can fully understand that they would charge let me talk to the guys at the armory tomorrow and see what they think. It seems to be traverse citys new "place to be" for firearms and ammunition

    Stopped by the armory here in traverse city today. They said they would be more than happy to have the event just need a heads up on the date as any place would. The downside to there location is there is only room for about 30 people which i think would be well exceeded with any sort of advertising. I will continue to ask around.

    30 people is fine. If you could write me with the contact information, I'll set it up.

    We have a boilerplate seminar announcement that we will post once it is organized.

    its not so much a conference room as a back room of there gunsmith shop but they hold cpl classes there and it has the room to be able to do a decent gathering.
