    This should be the biggest (mainly open carry) picnic ever - Riverview Farm Park on
    Saturday, June 21 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (Newport News).

    Even if you live in North Carolina this might be worth coming too!

    FROM recent VCDL alert:
    --

    **************************************************
    1. VCDL picnic in less than 2 weeks - bring lawn chairs!
    **************************************************

    The VCDL picnic in Newport News is filling up! We now have 150 people =

    signed up to attend!

    Since the pavilion only holds 100 people, we suggest you bring along
    some lawn chairs. We will continue to take more reservations until
    next Wednesday.

    Here is the info:

    VCDL PICNIC, Newport News, June 21

    This year's VCDL picnic will be held in Riverview Farm Park on
    Saturday, June 21 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

    Here is a link to information about the park: http://www.nnparks.com/parks_riverview.php

    Member Dale Welch tells us that for those using on-board navigation
    for directions, enter this address:

    105 City Farm Road
    Newport News

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

    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 to:

    picnics*vcdl.org

    with your name and the number of guests coming with you.

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

    Um, maybe it's me, but I wouldn't have associated guns with raves if I were posting this.

    Paranoid moment over, we now return you to your regularly scheduled sticky.

    My bride and Ihad a great time at the picnic today and met some very nice and committed folks. I'm proud to be a member of VCDL. Very nice to put some faces with the names.

    Tess, let me know if you get tired of that Goldwing... would be happy to take it off your hands.

    :celebrateThis was the first VCDL picnic for my wife and I. Thanks and congrats to all who did such a great job making it happen. It was well worth the 2 1/2 hour trip back to VB. We're both already looking forward to another one. Hopefully we can make it to an OC dinner soon.

    I heard John tell Dennis that they were hoping it would air on Monday. That's as definitive as I heard.

    VCDL on Nightline? Wow. I'll believe it when I see it. Last time CNN showed up at a VCDL meeting they didn't get the drama and controversy they wanted so they didn't air it.
