    Short-Notice, Nearly Impromptu, Phoenix OC lunch

    I just found out I can make it into Phoenix for Saturday, the 20th of September.

    I realize it is short notice, and is almost right before the AzCDL annual luncheon (October 11th).

    The details are as follows:

    *Who: any and all Freedom-loving OCers, CCers, or no-Cers.
    *What: Short-Notice, Nearly Impromptu, Phoenix OC lunch (SNNIP OC lunch)
    *Where: Phoenix eatery (details will be sent by PM.)
    *When: 1 pm on Saturday, 20th of September
    *Why: Because Freedom-loving individuals should hang (out) together, or else assuredly will hang (out) separately.

    Hope to have plenty of interest and get to spend time with new and familiar faces alike.

    Cool

    Mark Me/(Us) down as a tentative. I really liked the last place we went, however - if there is a demand for a location farther north in the valley, I won't object, as long as it is not a too "snobbish" venue.

    I will try and make it as well. How about the "Green" restaurant on Rural/Scottsdale ?

    Sorry for the late response, I've been fighting the effects of germs spread by people who don't cover their mouth when they cough and/or sneeze. Not fun.

    Glad to hear we may be having more gunslingers in attendance.

    I figured a Phoenix eatery would allow us to spread out across the map; hopefully we can visit places like Anthem, Peoria, Glendale, Cave Creek, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, and Chandler someday.

    As to visiting the last place we ate at: it'll happen again, just like a rematch. But if there is enough demand for visiting them again, we could easily switch it over. Good food for sure.

    Excuse Me Rusty! The only time I sling a gun is: a empty pistol at the BG or a long gun for protection. Lol... Could not resist.

    So far we have two members going for sure, one tentative member +guest, and three members MIA. Hope they're doing alright, but the radio silence on their end is disconcerting.

    I may be able to bring a guest; hope I'm able to calm their fears of OC as they currently either CC or no-C.

    Hope to get more interest.

    CC is far better than no C in my opinion. But as one of Eastwood's characters used to say.... "A mans got to know his limitations." IIRC.

    Sending you the eatery details by PM.

    To anyone else interested in going, ask one of us (FreeInAZ, PeterNSteinmetz, Javelina, or myself) to send you the details.

    Too bad you can't make it, but I don't think any of us will hold it against you.

    That may be asking too much, seeing as the AzCDL lucnh is only three weeks after this Saturday's OC lunch. I figure we can meet at or after the AzCDL lunch for a bit. I've already cleared that Saturday, so I don't have any other plans.
    Anyone else?

    I've got my tickets. In the past some members have taken a stroll to local gas station etc... Nothing like the public seeing a large group of people smartly OCing in public with no: Wild West shoot outs, no streets running red with blood and no children screaming in terror at the sight of law abiding citizens. Go figure?

    Tickets for a non-AZCDL member?

    This might sound bad, but I have a confession, I am not an AZCDL member YET! However is there anyway to get tickets for the luncheon if you are not a member? If not then I am open to throwing something together afterwards, dessert?

    No shootouts, murders, or blood-rivers? Obviously that could never happen if armed LACs are present.

    Well, you just wouldn't get to partake in the secret handshake, but you can attend:
    (Details)
    http://www.azcdl.org/html/annual_meeting.html
    (online store)
    http://www.azcdl.org/html/online_store.html

    Tickets are $20 each this year, and good times are expected.

    Only a few hours left till the SNNIP OC lunch!

    I will check my inbox before heading out, but since I do not own (nor intend to own) a "smart phone", I will not be able to check after that. If anyone who wants to go has not received the eatery location, let either myself or one of the other attendees know so that we may enjoy your company.

    Congratulations! Sorry to hear about the lung problems and hope the little guy gets better quick.

    Hopefully we get to meet Javelina Jr. soon, possibly at the AzCDL annual luncheon?
    FreeInAZ has his tickets, mine should be on the way soon, and PeterNSteinmetz will be unable to make it.
