    I am new to the forum and would like to start networking with people and was wondering if there is any OC event planned for the future, and if not we should get one planned such as a BBQ at a park for some lunch.

    Thoughts?

    Sounds like a great idea. I missed the last one.

    We should consider So. Waterfont park @ the Marina Dist during Rose Festival. We should all ride Max downtown as well.

    That should generate a plethora of fodder for the forum

    I am also new to the area, so I don't know where anything is.

    Where or when were you thinking? If we keep it out of PDX or Beaverton people won't be required to have a permit. Were you thinking of doing a family thing (spouse and kids) or just gun nuts who like to OC? I'm not up on the parks that would be good for this.

    It all depends on the date and time, so get it set and I will see if I can make it. It really depends on my wifes schedual, and it changes every week.

    I'm out until after June 10th, and out for the max until after June 18th. Thanks, Trimet!

    Phssphotok is also out (in Montana IIRC) until about the 18th, so we were thinking we'd put something together then.

    But if somebody else wants to organize it, I'm just fine with that!

    Part of me was thinking about organizing a litter pickup in Gresham, similar to what the NHFree guys are doing on a regular basis. Gresham doesn't require a CHL to OC loaded, so it would be better for the Washington people (if a bit more of a drive), and would also benefit the community. But I don't know how much interest there is in that here.

    Another part of me wants to have a big OC party on the max and at Pioneer Courthouse Square, but I'm thinking it might be wiser to try to get the trimet ordinance overturned first.

    Maybe we should adopt a road/highway. Wouldn't that be interesting to adopt a road...

    ADOPT-A ROAD PROGRAM - OPENCARRY.ORG



    I thought Trimet really didn't have a problem with it?

    In our particular case, the officer understood the ordinance was voice, but definitely had problems with it. :celebrate

    It is still included in Trimet's municipal code. I'd like to remove it from their municipal code.


    I think it would be freaking awesome to adopt a road. I'll look into it.

    I'm checking into it. Looks like we have to adopt a three mlie stretch of road and have to agree to maintain it three times a year for three years.

    I'd need to get commitments from at least a few people before I went for something like that.

    I'll find out what's available Monday or Tuesday and start another thread.

    I think adopting a road is an awesome idea.

    Sorry. I got hammered at work and didn't have a chance to look into it. I'll try to find out tomorrow!

    Nothing in Portland, but there is some stuff available in Gresham (which is good, because our Friends from the north can OC w/o a permit). I'm working on a list, but sounds like the guy is out 'till tomorrow.

    I haven't check Westside yet. I'll work on that next.

    It looks like it is county centric. I can see avoiding Multnomah all together. I couldn't even find anything about it for Columbia county. Washington county has a program, but we would probably want to avoid Beaverton as OC requires permits. I'm agreeing with grishnav that we should focus on Clackamas county.

    Clackamas County was actually third on my list.

    I'll get the lists for all three of them, but in general, which sort of areas would people rather persue? Keep in mind, none of the counties in Oregon (that I'm aware of) ban loaded carry for non-chl, so it just comes down to avoiding cities.

    As far as Clackamas being more friendly than Multnomah, they both tend to be bad, but I have met the Clackamas sheriff in person and may be able to speak to him, whereas I don't know the Multnomah county sheriff.

    Ah, Good point.I think I'm a bit off on my geography. Never was my greatest subject.

    I'm pretty much up for anywhere. Although I don't want to drive for hours, although it would only be a couple of times a year - depends.

    It occurs to me that this thread was supposed to be for planning the next meet...

    Do we want to start two new threads -

    1. For planning the next meet
    2. For organizing the adopt-a-road

    ??

    Definitely, we swayed from the OT.

    I'll be back in town mid week (in Tokyo - I feel so naked). I should be open to almost anything pending approval from the boss and her scheduled plans.
