    Yes, they have crab legs on Sundays : ) Parking is great. Family friendly environment. Holstered OC is not a problem there ever - please no long guns.

    Sunday buffet is $10.95 + tax + gratuity.

    We have arranged for a 10% discount on your entire ticket for all VCDL members. Show membership card or completed application at restaurant to qualify. We will have membership applications on hand.

    Please we want to get RSVPs - planning.

    RSVP to: dale@vcdl.org

    In the subject line, put “Dinner” and then the number in your party. Put your name and phone number in the text of the email.

    Traditionally so, at River City Diner (Parham Rd) when they open the doors at 6:30am, I believe. The location is convenient via the interstate highway to downtown Richmond and the GAB.

    They open at 7am usually, I can talk to Theresa and see if she'll do 6.30 like she did last year if people are interested

    That would be good.

    I'm sure that there would be people waiting to get in when they open.

    If you haven't confirmed your attendance, please do so soon.

    We need to be able to predict the numbers, though walk-ins will be welcomed. Will want to keep everyone in the same seating area.

    Most (all?) of the Board of Directors of VCDL will be in attendance. Owners of OCDO are expected also.

    The outpouring of support brings joy to my heart - we stand together!

    Wow what an evening! Good food, great conversation. Estimated total of attendees at 100!

    Youngest attending (10 weeks), furthest traveled was likely the president of Maryland Shall Issue.

    My hat is of to all of you - you are what makes this work.


    Rest well tonight ladies and gentlemen - the real show begins tomorrow.

    Some will be at the GA by 6:30 am to grease the wheels and get things ready.

    Thanks, Grapeshot, for taking this on.

    Had a bit of a scare early on. Spouse is allergic to shellfish, and there's so much there on the buffets that he couldn't avoid it. There must've been some in the air from the steam tables. Fortunately, he got away quickly, but I doubt we can go to that restaurant again.

    Note to self: NEVER go anywhere without the Benadryl. Stash some in his truck.
