    I will be home on April 10th. I'm planning on going to the next lunch on the west side which I believe is going to be the 13th? So any time after that works for me! There is a slight possibilty that I will only have 2 weeks at home this time. But hopefully I will have a 4 week vacation. It's too soon to know for sure. My relief on the ship quit the company, so I may have to stay over or come back early. , let me know what works for you guys. Spokane needs as much OC support as possible!!

    The 13th could very well work for me, just need to check on tests and things of that sort. I'll be in touch.

    I'll be going to the lunch that's planned on the 13th in the Seattle area. I saw somewhere that that was when it is going to be. How about we shoot for the 19th or 20th for the next one in Spokane?

    Anybody reading this from the west side that can confirm the date/place ot city of your next big OC event?

    Do we want to consider going over to the main meeting as a group? If we got five people to go, we could really cut down on gas expenses per person. Also, I'll be in Spokane on the 19th of April for a concert so I'm thinking that we should plan on an OC lunch that morning.

    I won't be able to carpool. I am going to stay over there a few days to visit my uncles, my very old grandma and take care of some work stuff. Sorry about that. I am all good an interim lunch on the 19th. What concert?

    I have a pair of tickets to see Ani Difranco. That should be proof enough that all gun owners aren't rednecks that listen to country music and drive jacked-up trucks.

    I've been a huge Ani fan for almost a decade. I really want to go to that, but I am torn. Naomi Wolf, the author of "the end of America, a letter to a young patriot" is in town the same night. I can't make up my mind.

    Naomi Wolf in town the same night as Ani Difranco???? AHHHHHH!! If I didn't already have tickets, I'd be torn on which on to go to. I can't believe that I've found another Ani fan in the gun community. Right on Jason, it's good to see some free thinkers out there. What time is she talking?

    7:30 at the Bing Crosby center at EWU. Maybe I go see wolf and you see ani and we both use our fancy recorders and then share mp3's? Not sure how good we can get the audio though. Ani took a few years off from touring I heard. She is developing serious problems in her hands, limiting her guitar playing a lot. So they both should be great events. Wolfs book is absolutely shocking, so I think I am leaning towards seeing her speak. What she addresses is of uptmost concern to me. Let's just record them and share.

    I plan on OCing everywhere but the Service Station. We missed you on the last lunch run. It would be great to get more people this time around.

    Why no OC @ the Station? I have a family of 5, busy man.

    I don't want to push my luck by OCing alone at an Ani Difranco concert in Spokane. That's just asking for me to get the cops called and I'd really like to be able to watch Ani without dealing with cops.

    I can do lunch the 19th. I wont be able to bring the gf though. She is working that day so she could get that night off. Gotta go see Naomi Wolf. There are lots of other days I can do also if we want to do a larger lunch, or even two!

    I was thinking maybe we could do another place downtown again. Maybe the steelhead grill or a different spot. Then we could use Cyrus o'learys as a back up since lunch went without a hitch there. Maybe the onion, p.f. Changs, steelhead, olive garden, twigs, o'dohertys. There are so many place to choose from! All within a few blocks of each other. Italian? Chinese? Burgers? Sushi? Fancier entrees?
    Does anybody know what the policy is inside Riverpark Square?
    So my initial vote is for the steelhead grill.
    www.steelheadbarandgrill.com if you want to check out their menu.

    what days will you be in town? 396th? 659th?
    To answer the Grendel shooting requests, probably still won't be ready to shoot. I've got 40 rounds right now and I still have to mount and sight in my new scope. I don't know how much time I will have to get some ammo loaded. I know I need to get around to it, but I have a lot planned for my 4 weeks off the ship this time home

    I drill in the same building as the engineers. I will be there 17-20 and was hoping for something more along the lines of dinner. You can never say when you will be done for the day with some government jobs.

    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    I know what you mean. I was in the 396th and then later the 659th after I changed MOS. I have plans the night of the 19th and am planning on going to the west side of the state for the get together on the 20th, which I when just a car said it would be? I am surprised they havent started a thread to get people geared up for it. maybe one of the other nights we can do dinner though. Sounds like a OC weekend for sure, but the more people we can get together at once the better.

    Yeah, sorry about that... I've been busy with getting back into the swing of things at school, as Spring quarter just started. The 20th is the third Sunday of the month, which has kind of become the standard day for the monthly lunch/dinner meets.

    I'll put up a quick post about this coming one... as far as I know, there's no suggestions for location this time.
