    Please stand by to stand by for a Richmond-area meet&greet with a "furriner"

    He aint from around here. He thinks he will be in/near Richmond Saturday September 5th and/or Sunday September 6th. Time of arrival is currently unknown so this may be in addition to the historically Most Saturdays Greater RVA Breakfast.

    More details will be released as the "furriner" figures out his itinerary and such-like.

    Identity of the "furriner" will remain confidential in the hopes that by not knowing who it is more will come out just to find out.

    Go sharpen those pencils now. I'll let you know when to start using them on your calendars.

    stay safe.

    That is Labor Day weekend

    Should we plan a range trip for the geographically deprived now that they are setting foot in a freedom zone, if only for a few days?

    That would be a wonderful thing. Thank you for volunteering to bring it to fruition once the date is locked in.

    I'll see if the mystery guest wants to limit trigger time to handguns.

    stay safe.

    While I was posting this the mystery guest had PM'd me saying that they would not be able to pin down which day they will be in the area until about August 29th. Will you be able to work with just a week to set things up?

    Should still be able to manage schedule

    The more notice the better, but flexibility is possible. If other than handguns, OC'd of course, is desired, I can manage a few options. Number of guests is limited by range rules. The entourage must remain limited. Extra effort will be spent if this "furriner" is new to firearms. I love new shooter smiles!

    Unless your membership at Black Creek is different from mine, you are limited to two guests. I will offer to escort two more guests with my membership.

    So I'm guessing that trying to reserve/rent a couple of hours for a crowd in excess of 6 (2 members + 2 guests each), on Labor Day Weekend, would be a leeetle bit more difficult than the "impossible" one would encounter any other day?

    Anybody have land reasonably close to Richmond?

    stay safe.

    Well, thanks for pointing that out.

    But I understand that nobody would need to use the ferry.

    Also, Surry is close enough.

    I'll get back to you on your generous offer of your land once dates and times are more solidly known.

    stay safe.

    UPDATE!

    You are now advised to stand by to stand by to receive definitive information.

    Those found sitting, munching popcorn and sipping soda, will be asked why they did not bring enough for everyone.

    stay safe.

    "This has been a drill. This has only been a drill. Had there been an actual arrival of a mystery guest information would have been provided following the alert tone. BZZT BZZT BZZT"

    I have been given permission to release the following:

    "After much planning and changing of plans, the mystery guest has finalized their itinerary. After completing a short portion of his scheduled journey Joe Sparky will not be continuing on."

    Please accept our sincere thanks for both standing by to stand by and standing by to stand by to stand by. Your participation is appreciated and Mr. Sparky expresses his deepest regrets at not being able to meet any of the Virginia OCDO members in person. Mr. Sparky extends an open invitation to join him in his home state where he claims there are "real" mountains.

    You are, of course, free to continue with any plans for a meet&greet&shoot or other activity.

    stay safe.

    That's a shame he can't make it to here, I enjoy his views and manner of explaining them even if I don't agree with all of them (heck, I don't agree with everything my friends on this board in RVA say), would have been nice to meet him.

    Have to admit, though, I had been hoping skid was going to inform us of a return of Matt from TX who I enjoyed meeting, and showing some of Richmond's history to, last year.

    I guess I'm an outsider and don't get it. It would have been nice to meet him I suppose, if I knew who he was.
