    VCDL picnics Sat, 7/30/16

    On Saturday, July 30, 11:00AM VCDL will have a picnic in the Ni River Reservoir (10516 Gordon Road, Spotsylvania)!

    The picnic is open to the public.

    We will have Senate Bryce Reeves, one of the architects of “the deal,” which advanced our ability to carry in more states outside of Virginia and welcomes the CHP holders of all states to carry in Virginia (effective on July 1).

    VCDL will provide the hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, fixings, chips, and drinks. We need a cook or two and if you can bring something to share (desert, sides, appetizers, etc.), that would be great, but not required at all.

    Bring your fishing poles if you have a fishing license!

    RSVP - The picnic area accommodates 80 people, so we are requesting those coming to please RSVP to me (president@vcdl.org). In the subject line put: “RSVP for Ni River Picnic, party of #”, with “#” being the number of people in your party.

    **************************************************

    I've sent an email already offering to bring some dishes, but I have not heard anything back yet.

    I'm going to the Ni River event, by the way...

    Just do it if - it will be appreciated.

    DoubleTap and I will be there. We always bring our own folding picnic chairs too.

    At past picnics, dogs on leashes were welcome too. Presume this to be the case but haven't seen anything specific.

    Fredericksburg county has thoughtfully provided the means to elevate your lifestyle and it isn't IMO just limited to the Ni River Reservoir.

    Note to self: Bring recorder and camera. Bring friends with recorders and cameras. Bring lots of friends with recorders and cameras.

    I just love picnics.

    BTW - My dog is personal property and he carries his treat sterile.

    Let us know if you will need bail money. Not that we'll necessarily have it, but we'd like to know.

    For those attending either of the picnics - suggest bringing a comfortable folding chair. Such beats sitting on those hard picnic benches.

    Be at the dealership when they open.

    Picnic starts at 11:00AM - plenty of time.

    Loaner car? Have someone pick you up or dealership drop you off. Accomplish both.

    my appointment is at 8am when they open but I don't know how long of a wait before they get to my car and then how long to do everything that they need to do. ill have to just sit and wait for them to finish since the dealership is on Culpeper and they close at 2pm. I hope that it wont take that long but when I asked them how long would the inspection will take they stated 45 minutes for that. I never had a inspection take that long before plus the car is only 3 years old.

    In spite of some early, heavy rain, you just couldn't keep the hard core activists away. Estimate that there were approximately 100 people there - some leaving while others arrived.

    Very interesting talk given by Senator Bryce Reeves and encouraging words by PVC.

    Good to see ol' friends and meet some new ones too.

    There was plenty of food - well prepared too. Compliments to the chefs who did a superb job.

    One small correction above. I haven't heard that the city of Fredericksburg has tried this yet. But taking this to it's logical conclusion aren't most of the roads also county property? I can't imagine this policy going well for any routine traffic stop. Or for anyone visiting any county-owned building to conduct required or rightful business, such as paying your water bill, or registering to vote, etc.

    On a brighter note, the picnic was a big success! I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Senator Reeves. He definitely deserves our support in his run for Lieutenant Governor next year!

    Great event. Good food, great people, sunshine, and freedom.

    I'm afraid I pissed off Senator Reeves when he said we needed more "good Republicans" in Central Virginia and I shuddered. It seemed he was very interested in moving on to the next person. But his staff gave my son a shirt -- which I'll be lucky to get off him sometime in the next few days.

    As of today, though, I'd support him for LG. If he sticks to the priorities he mentioned today, instead of those in the mailer he sent me last week, we could get along.

    The wife, baby, and I attended the picnic down in Salem on Saturday evening. We were too late to hear Sheriff Orange, but we still made it in time to enjoy some dinner with the folks there. After most of the eating was through, one of the VCDL coordinators went through some announcements of coming events and group needs. It was good to see some familiar faces of the folk down this way!
