    Sort of Event. Tulip Time in Holland - May 4th

    Hey everyone this isn't really so much an event rather then a notice that I will be attending the start of Tulip Time in Holland on May 4th. I will be there most of the day dressed in some MOC gear and armed with a pocket full of tri-folds. I was going to get a table but the city does not accommodate for advocacy groups, of any kind. So if anyone feels like checking out the festivities and hanging out I will be there. Not 100% on when I plan on getting there yet I will update when I have a better idea.

    I plan on being there on Saturday.
    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

    Since this thread died after the last 'i'll be there at x:xx', my assumption is that this went well, uneventful, as it should be?

    Though, when you assume you make an 'ass' out of 'u' and 'me', so some confirmation of this would be nifty.

    Yes everything went smoothly. No problems at all, even at the art in the park, where it was packed.

    4 showed up, 3 OCd one not, no one seemed the least bit interested in the guys carrying guns except the girl who said we (the girl and her friend) should stay by them (us) so they (the girls) would be safe... uneventful truly
