    Cool East Kentucky Open Carry Meetup - December 14th

    EKOCC Meet & Greet to be held at the Jenny Wiley Lodge (Dining Room) on December 14th @ 11:30am.

    We will be meeting upstairs near the TV in the lobby then going down to the dining room for the buffet and discussion. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

    For those that have inquired, Jenny Wiley is a State Park and is not under the ACoE! The Dewey Lake is likewise part of the State Park and is not under ACoE! The Dewey Spillway IS ACoE property though!

    Hopefully we can get some new faces there this time, or at least some of the old faces that don't show up anymore.

    I'd love to see everyone that we've ever had show up but I'll be happy if we have you, Bre, myself and maybe 2 or 3 friends from up here show up. The only thing I have not been able to verify as of yet is if they have the buffet on Saturdays or not but I do know that the dining room is opened on Saturdays and they're serving so.... *LOL* either way, there'll be food and conversation. *LOL* I've been spreading the word about this meeting, I want to see just how many we can get to turn out for it to see if it's going to be better, the same or worse than Ashland. I guess we never know till we try though. I do know that there are more folks up here that have voiced and interest so I guess we'll if they were serious or not.

    I don't know if it's the fact that the EKOCC Meet & Greet has been moved more to the east side of the state or if it's because of the new format of OCDO moving this to Kentucky Events but I'm sure that we can all tell that the number of views is outrageously low compared tot he posting for October's M&G.

    Maybe, maybe not, it's a two hour one-way trip to prestonsburg, further away moreso than Ashland, plus weather dictates things to me, I don't CC at all, ever, so if it's heavy jacket weather and I do go, I won't bother carrying at all. I'll let y'all know for sure Friday morning if my maybe turns to a yes or no.

    If you want we can carpool from Louisa, my truck is probably worse on gas than your jeep. So I would even be ahead to pay the gas from here to Prestonsburg.

    We cannot car pool from Louisa, primarily because I live near Owingsville, which is about 90miles from Louisa, LOL.

    Looking on the map, you're closer to Prestonsburg than me, and the only way we could carpool together is if you drove to Morehead, and parked and we drove down to prestonsburg, however you're closer to Prestonsburg than you are to Morehead. xD. You should look into buying a SmartCar, or a 1980s Ford Fiesta.

    You drive from Owingsville to Louisa.

    We can then drive from here in either my truck or your jeep.

    We have a great time at the OC meet and greet.

    We then drive back to Louisa.

    You drive to Owingsville.


    It is about the same distance from Owingsville to Louisa as it was from Owingsville to Russell. I would either be ahead paying for the gas from Louisa to Prestonsburg in your jeep or be exactly the driving my truck, just with another passenger.

    Okay, on second thought, sorry Isaac, I can't take that much driving/car riding. http://goo.gl/maps/0iBQL Owingsville, to Louisa, to prestonsburg is 136miles, 2hrs 17 minutes. In which I'll drive all the way out to the KY/WVA line about 90 miles away, then down the line to Louisa, then down to prestonsburg. Then back to Louisa, then back home. Four hours, 300 or so miles. That's one and a half tanks of gas, and a heck of a trip for me. I don't want to sound stubborn or anything, and I sincerely apologize, but I can't do that.

    While just from me, to Prestonsburg, is roughly 80miles, and just about an hour.

    Maybe next time or when I'm less plagued by insomnia and a four hour trip wouldn't have the risk of me falling asleep at the wheel LOL. But still, looking like a good perhaps, maybe a real yes on going, depends still if I have any unexpected bills come up on friday.

    The best way to get one started is to pick a time and place and stick with it.

    Also, invite all of your friends to go. The largest EKY M&G had four of Neuroblade's friends and my GF. He and I were the only to from the forum.

    Didn't you guys do some volunteer work or something in lexington? Like open carry clean up?

    Best time would be piggy back a gun show.

    I forget his OCDO screen name, but the person who organized the Lexington Open Carry Litter Pick-up was Mr. Frank Harris, and it t'was him, myself, and a couple of his friends that showed up to do it, once, I think it was last spring or last year.

    Gutshot was able to rally everyone to meet at Golden coral a while back, so it is possible, just really hard to do outside of gun shows. The only problem about gun shows, is it's not really all that fun to go to such a show when you can't afford anything there! xD

    Cool Lexington Gun Shows Upcoming.

    The next scheduled gun show in Lexington will be Jan. 4th & 5th at the usual location. It be rather short notice to try to get one scheduled and set up in that short of time. Generally, you need to get it out there as far ahead of schooled thereby giving people more time to become aware of it when you're first starting a new M&G in an area.

    The next one in Lexington would be Feb. 22nd & 23rd. That would give you enough time to scout a location that would be gun friendly, allow for a nice place to eat and chat & be central location that most everyone can find easily. I'm not to aware of the gun climate in Lexington but I have eaten at the Golden Corral's most everywhere in the Central to Eastern Kentucky and WV are and have had little to no negative interactions with the customers or management. We started the EKOCC out at the Golden Corral in Ashland, Ky. and after awhile decided to try to move it closer the Eastern Kentucky region and now we're conducting them at the Jenny Wiley State Park Lodge.

    With all that being said, timing of a Meet & Greet on the same day as the gun show might be a great idea but you'd have start it a bit after 5pm when the gun show closes down for the day and try to avoid having it in any heavily congested area's in and around Lexington. When the gun show ends and everyone scurries for their vehicles, it's as bad as when UK plays, almost! *LOL* I had mentioned Golden Corral as a great place to hold a Meet & Greet but in Lexington this might be ill-advised as the one on New Circle is usually very busy and you might need to contact them ahead of time to hold one of the side rooms for everyone to meet in. The GZ location I mentioned is usually quite busy and therefore, quiet loud as well and when you're holding a OC M&G, it's not a good idea to have to be yelling the words, "GUN", "FIREARM", "WEAPON" or the like out loud around large crowds of people.
