    BTW, this seminar us 100% booked/reserved. You can still get in the waiting list.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Good to hear it is filled, I know someone who would have liked to know it was an RSVP event.
    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

    We need to work on that. The good news, it may be moving to a roomier venue. Stay tuned for details.

    That person could get on our mailing list, where they'd find that out. http://miopencarry.org/updates

    Of course, they can just show up and we'll seat them if there is room -- or they could stand.

    "They" could subscribe to the list for future reference as there will be future seminars in the GR area. Of course, "they" could just refuse to sign up for the list so "they" will have so etching to complain about next time "they" don't get the info "they" need...

    I wasn't aware that this was rsvp either and gave out my email at the big boy in Grandville. I never got anything on it. The wife and I were planning on going to the seminar, oh well we'll catch the next one. I did just use the email subscription above though and submitted it

    As SB posted in #5, the venue may be changing/getting bigger, so get one the waiting list.

    http://moc-seminar-grandville-ocdo.eventbrite.com

    If the venue changes and more seats open up, they will be filled (in order) from the mailing list.

    The most authoritative place to get info about Michigan Open Carry events is Michigan Open Carry's forum and mailing list. All other sources are secondary.

    If you sign up for our email list a few things come into play:

    1. It takes a few days for us to manually enter your data and sign you up.
    2. Your writing may have been illegible and we may not have been able to sign you up.

    I think the event had "sold out" prior to the Grandville big boy.

    Also, I haven't received a copy of the mailing list sign up from our SW regional coordinator for ppl that signed up in Grandville, I need to fix that.

    It's free. I'd show up anyways, chances are you'll be able to get a seat.
