    Anyone besides me going this Thursday (5/18/06)? We had a real good contingent from opencarry.org last month. We could get a real club going.

    I will be there. Does anyone know anything about the movie Philip is going to be showing?

    From the VCDL VA-Alert:
    For fun and something different, I am planning on playing the movie "Michael & Me," where Larry Elder pokes Michael Moore in the eye. Trouble is that the movie is 2 hours long, so we will need to start the meeting at 7:30 PM sharp instead of the normal time of 8 PM.

    As usual, we will adjourn the meeting at 9:30 PM and head to a local restaurant for continued fellowship, so if you plan on carrying at the restaurant, be prepared to do so openly.

    I have seen the movie...I had higher expectations for it...but it was still pretty good...Larry Elder made the movie...he is a pro 2nd amendment liberatarian. Check out some of his columns at www.townhall.com.

    Yes, my wife and I are going to the May 23rd VCDL meeting in Norfolk. As it is a 5+ hour drive for us, we will be staying over at the Raddison, and plan to spend some time in Colonial Williamsburg and Virginia Beach over the next couple days.

    The VA Beach restaurant info posted elsewhere on this site will likely help to choose eateries there; does anyone have any info to share about OC/CC in Williamsburg?

    Thanks!

    FWIW, according to the VCDL announcement of the May 23rd meeting, it is at the Radisson Hotel, not the Marriott:

    The Virginia Citizens Defense League will hold a meeting for members
    and the general public at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23rd!

    The meeting will be held at the Radisson Hotel, 700 Monticello Avenue
    in Norfolk which is across the street from the Norfolk Scope.

    Many thanks to Robert Marcus (owner of Bob's Gun and Tackle) who
    generously arranged for the room AND refreshments as a donation to
    VCDL.


    and I have not (yet?) received any notice that the venue was changed.

    Thanks!
    peiceKeeper, look at this PDO post of another guys experience in OCing at Colonial Williamsburg. After reading his post I would highly recommend it! Here is the link (read the post from Chronoshifter):
    http://www.packing.org/community/gen...hatitem_101495

    The only thing to keep in mind is that there are a lot of National Parks outside of CW, and any sort of carry there isillegal. Just know where the NP's start and you should be fine

    Thanks! The PDO post makes it sound like OC in Colonial Williamsburg would be a hoot, but I'm not sure my wife would welcome the extra attention.

    She still bears the emotional scars of our many years in CT, where OC, while not prohibited by any CT statute, is subject to claims by State Police "experts" that they will charge anyone OCing with "breach of the peace".

    That said, I will encourage her to read the posts and see what happens. Perhaps I will OC and she will CC - that seems like a "reasonable compromise", right??

    That post at "Packing", concerning OC at Williamsburg,was the greatest read. I could just picture the whole thing.

    I'm hoping to make the meeting in norfolk since i live in Va. Beach & it's very hard to make it to the meetings up in norva. But my daughter has a school program that night & i may be late.

    Btw i sent in my application for membership about 8 weeks ago & haven't heard anything back from VCDL. How lang does it normally take for memebership applications to get precessed. I'm not complaining just asking............................................ .................................DF1
