    I may or may not be there. I'm not sure if I'll be in VA then so I can't say for sure.

    Wow it's on Thursday, great. That means I can show up very late as usual. Better then not at all I guess....

    Depends on who you ask. :P
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Is OC OK at the usual time and place? Yeah; I see that you are posting here, at OCDO, and not at the VCDL blog, but, as one of the unitiated,I likes to KNOW.

    Does the secret handshake club allow for cigars? I will have time to kill. And, as I will be OC, I will have opportunity.

    Oh, and is parking easy to find, at that time of night? Better yet, is it free?

    Be nice: it's for the uninitiated!

    You may OC if you like. Afterwards, we usually go to Fuddruckers for dinner. They serve alcohol so you have to OC in there.

    The secret handshake place is a no-smoking zone.

    If the weather is nice, people often mill about during the 7:30-8:00 social time prior to the actual meeting, at the Governmental Center.

    Here is your clue to the secret handshake club hangout.
    The first mate of the Pequod.
    The square root of 40513225. +
    The Command/Service Module for the Apollo 11 mission. +
    The other name of the Esox genius.

    Be there at one bell of the Last dog watch.

    I'm impressed. That was a good job on the code.

    Same here. I've never been to a meeting before (granted I finally just joined the VCDL at the last Chantilly gun show) but I know of the secret handshake place already if memory serves me right EDIT: Yep...thank's to longwatch's clue (which was pretty clever btw...)

    I don't know whether I'll be OCing or not though. May not this time just until I get the hang of everything...parking, times, etc. just so I have one less thing to think about.

    Up to you. Most of us OC at these meetings, and I've seen as few as 20 and as many as 200 at the meetings. Up to a dozen or so at the meetup prior. So you wouldn't be out of place. Still, everyone's comfort level varies.

    Looking forward to meeting you.

    Whoah! I am glad that you gave the clues, as I thought that it was a different one.

    Yeah, but, they are no smoking. I will be the one with my nose at the window.

    And you baker,
    Little old lady welcome
    And you shoe maker

    Come to this house!
    Into this house.

    Come to this house
    Be one of us.
    Make this your house
    Be one of us.

    You can help
    To collect some more in
    Young and old people
    Lets get them all in!

    Come to this house!
    Into this house.

    Ask along that man who's wearing a carnation.
    Bring every single person
    from Victoria Station,
    Go into that hospital
    and bring nurses and patients,
    Everybody go home and fetch their relations!

    Come to this house
    Be one of the comfortable people.
    Lovely bright home
    Carrying gunsall night never sleeping.

    We need more room
    Build an extension
    A colourful palace
    Spare no expense now

    Come to this house
    Be one of us
    Come into this house
    Be one of us

    Come to this house
    Into this house

    Welcome

    That's right - open to the public. Bring some friends, too!
