    DATE: Sunday April 27th., 2008

    TIME: Noon

    WHERE: Reuttier Park, downtown Lansing.

    You don't have to open carry if you don't want to. You can carry an open empty holster to show your support.

    Bring a dish to share, your own tableware and beverages (no alcohol please). A lawn chair if you want. Friends and family are welcome. Also any other picnic games you want to engage in, catch, soccer balls, frisbee, playing cards. Mastiff mentioned bringing a small gas grill to cook dogs, etc. There are benches and picnic tables on site, but no covered areas so if it rains we may have to change plans.

    Reuttier Park is a couple of blocks north of 469 with fairly easy on and off. I don’t know what we can do if it’s raining. Perhaps we can meet at a McDonald’s or something.

    See this link for a color image of area.


    http://maps.yahoo.com/#mvt=h&lat=42.730665&lon=-84.558545&mag=3&q1=Lansing%2C%20Michigan

    General directions to Reuttier Park. The park is surrounded by E. Kalamazoo St. (northside), Capital Ave (eastside), E. Lenawee St. (southside), and Townsend St. (Westside). Off of 496 coming from the east take the Walnut St. exit north. Those coming from the west you can take the MLK Blvd. exit north off of 496. See map for details or check out the link above.

    There ismeter parking surrounding the Park. I THINK parking is free on the weekends, but check any meters for times. Lansing is fairly dead during the weekend so parking and a lots of people should not be a problem. Also there are a lot of one way streets so be advised, if you miss a street you can generally go a couple of streets and loop back around. Lansing is pretty safe most anywhere during the day. After the meeting I would recommend any that wish to,go to the State Library/history museum it’s free and it’s a great place to learn about Michigan's history. Public Parking is available at the State Library/Museum, you may have to pay, (can’t remember if weekend days are free), but it’s fairly cheap. That lot is 4 blocks east of the Park.

    Just don't invite Tomahawk. He tends to attract Police Helo's at picnics!

    I'd bring my canopy, but a big storm finished it off. Although, I might have a lawn chair or 2 I can bring.

    Anybody else have a canopy that you can bring?

    We are bringing some all beef hot dogs and buns/condiments, some chips, and girl scout cookies. We will also have on hand some paper plates/silverware/cups/ice and some garbage bags.

    We need someone to bring side dishes likebeans or potato salad or something along these lines.

    Forecast as of 1:00 pm today is for rain Sunday later afternoon and temps in the mid 50's, so if we miss the rain it should be a nice day. I'd bring some rain gear and a sweatshirt or light jacket. If it's raining bad we may have to go indoors of find a park with a gazebo or something.

    If it's pouring rain before the event we may have to reschedule.

    Well that was fun. Met some new faces, and missed some old ones.

    A brief re cap: Everyone that was there had plenty to eat. It was an open carry feast. As it turned out, there was a race for cancer or something like that, and many thousands of people came by. There were about half a dozen cops that came by, including one motorcycle officer that stayed on the corner to direct traffic away from the race for at least half the time we were there. No one, and I do mean no one, even mentioned anything about us OCing. The police didn't care, nor did the folks walking by.

    It was lots of fun, and although I'm moving out of state, I'm going to be coming back to visit at some point, and I have every intention of trying to plan a trip to coincide with an OC meet. I look forward to the next one I see you guys and gals at.

    By the way, thanks again for those Girl Scout cookies Venator. I'm afraid they are already gone.

    Thanks for letting this old wreck from Indiana join in your Michigan get-together. It was nice. By the way, WHEEL GUNS are real guns.

    Like I said at the meeting, there should be a wheel gun themed OC meeting in Michigan's future.
