    Two OC events in Louisville

    I'd like to invite KY OCers to a couple of OC outings in Louisville.

    The first is Sunday April 21st at the Louisville Zoo. LG&E is sponsoring Earth Day at the Zoo that day and admission is only $2 per person with no parking fee. Let's take advantage of KRS 65.870 and exercise our rights while we enjoy a nice day out with our families. If possible let's try to meet somewhere and drive over to the Zoo together.

    I suggest the Kroger on Poplar Level Rd. I'll be there at 1PM and leave for the Zoo promptly at 1:15. Look for a white Chevy Venture minivan parked directly behind the Kroger gas station. Once we're at the Zoo we can walk around together or head off in different directions but I'd like to gather beforehand so everyone has a chance to meet one another. PM me if you plan to attend.

    The second event is Saturday April 27th at 5:30PM. A few of us from the AR15.com KY subforum are meeting for supper at the Beef O'Brady's on Central Ave. across from Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. We've eaten there before and the restaurant is OC friendly. I'm gatherup some door prizes for this so come network with fellow gun owners. Again, PM me if you're coming to this.

    Taking my cue from liberty4ever's excellent work in Lexington, I'd like to see the Louisville OC community become more active together.

    I think I may be able to attend the zoo day on the 21st. That weekend is also when the gun show is in town.

    Why do you people schedule events and stuff when I'm scheduled to not be anywhere near the state or its cities?!

    One of these days, I'm going to rent a bus, and put you all on it, so when I'm on vacation in Myrtle Beach, Ottawa, or tornado chasing in Oklahoma, then you guys could have a OC event and I wouldnt have to decide whether to go, or to get my pure terror, or TnA beach bliss.

    Seriously, I've never been to the L-ville zoo before, I hear its kinda like Cincinnati's Zoo, but smaller and cleaner.

    I think maybe you answered you own question there.

    It is actually a pretty common saying, "When the Drake is away, have an OC get together."

    Is this because I keep threatening to totally '***-out' and wear the gayest, pinkish, most flamboyant outfit possible, to an OC meet up?

    Also, the way you said it, made me think of the movie qoute; "It puts the lotion on its skin, or it gets the hose again." then followed by immense shuddering and cold chills of creepiness.

    That would be a bit awkward. I can just imagine trying to have a park clean-up, or something like that, with a man dressed like a Las Vegas showgirl.

    I would love come to the zoo in Louisville, but alas, I will be in the Volunteer state. I would like to join at the Beef O'Brady eat. I have heard they have good food.

    Quick AAR from the Louisville Zoo today...

    Not even during Halloween have I seen so many people at the Zoo today. Jammed packed! Enjoyed meeting gutshot and sorry we got seperated partner. No one said anything negative to me about my sidearm but one guy did shake my hand and thanked me for carrying. There are no "No Guns" signs posted anywhere that I could see and I checked the spots where I remembered seeing them before.

    Next up is the OC meetup at Beef O'Brady's. See you this Saturday.

    I tried to meet up with you guys, but the with the traffic I didn't get to the meet point until 150! I went to the zoo anyway, fought the crowd to the gorillas and bailed. WAY to many people!

    Anyone who's coming tomorrow evening just ask the hostess for the "ARFCOM" group. She'll point you in the right direction. I'm going to ask for space for 10 people. It's the Beef's on Central Ave. across from the UofL baseball stadium.

    Hey KRM59 thanks for offering to bring the TG&G range time coupons. I'm also bringing a couple of small items to give away. Nothing big but hopefully they'll be appreciated.

    And Colcat if you're in Valley Station I'm right up the road in PRP. I OC around the Dixie corridor all the time w/ no complaints. send me a PM and we'll get together.

    I intend to not be such a troll at some point and join these. Unfortunately, I have a daughter in a math placement test all this morning and a dance recital later in the afternoon. 4 kids and my work keeps me hopping all of the time. Please keep posting events - I really want to attend.
