    I am new to this forum. I live in King & Queen County, VA and work in Williamsburg, VA. I am trying to find out where the closest place for me to get involved is . I am a member of the NRA and possess a CWP for the State of Virginia . I carry concealed every day and OC every now and then. I just happened to come across this site and after looking around here for about 45 minutes I would like to get more involved . Any information would be greatly apprectiated. Thanks in advance.

    The majority of OCDO members in here are also VCDL members (myself included). VCDL (Virginia Citizens Defense League) is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the preservation Virginia's 2nd amendment rights.

    Be involved in letter and email campaigns;

    Lobby legislatures in person;

    Supportwronged gun owners at Town Council meetings;

    Man our booth at gun shows;

    Help identify and remove legacy no guns signs and misapplied legacy laws;

    A bunch of other 'hands-on' activist stuff that support our rights.

    Welcome aboard and do come on in.. the water is fine. A lot of information on this site from a lot of qualified people. You will learn and enjoy much.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    From King & Queen County it may be easier for you to attend the occasional VCDL meetings in Richmond or Tidewater. Either way join VCDL and sign up for the VA-Alert e-mail info. as you will find it quite helpful as a source of legislative and political news concerning gun rights.

    Join VCDL (www.vcdl.org). Then sign up for the picnic. You'll probably meet lots of folks there.

    Mark your calendars! This year's VCDL picnic will be in Newport News!

    We have booked Riverview Farm Park on Saturday, June 21 from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM.

    Delegate Brenda Pogge, who carried HB 529 for VCDL to fruition this
    year, will be one of our guest speakers.

    The park, which belongs to the City of Newport News, is supposed to be beautiful. We actually have it booked all day for those who might want to hang around after the picnic.

    Here is a link to information about the park:

    http://www.nnparks.com/parks_riverview.php

    The shelter will hold 100 people. I hope our members and friends from
    central and southeast Virginia will come out, fill up that pavilion, and make the picnic a success! (Of course, you are welcome no matter what part of Virginia you live in.)

    Invite your friends, family, and coworkers!

    There is nothing to bring and there is no cost. We do ask that you let us know if you are coming so we know how much food to buy.

    To RSVP, send an email with your name and the number of guests coming with you to:

    picnics@vcdl.org

    If you can help with the picnic (cooking, setting up/tearing down,
    etc.) include that information in your email.

    We worked our tails off this last year, so it's time for some fun and
    downtime! See you in June.

    Welcome to OCDO and VCDL !!!

    As bayboy42 pointed out, keep an eye on the Tidewater and Richmond OC Dining out threads, we try to do a least two a month in the Tidewater area - looks like the next one will be Southside. We try to alternate between the Peninsula and Southside - lots more opportunity for great food!!!

    Hell, Bubba even took some of MY pig when I couldn't finish it all !:shock:

    But don't let that worry you. Just bring your appetite and have a good time. The picnic also should be a lot of fun.

    For those of you using a GPS to get to the picnic, the address is
    105 City Farm Road Newport News,
    the intersection address at Young Rd. will not work (did not for me).
