    Sunday, June 22nd , 1 PM @ Main Buffet.

    It should be late enough not to get the church crowd..


    If 1 PM is too early, let me know, I'm gonna call tomorrow and see about reservations for about 20 people...

    ETA: They have plenty of stuff other than sushi.

    Anyone want to meet up in Federal Way and car pool? PM me if you're interested. I plan on going either way, but would enjoy the company. Plan on 1200 departure if Federal Way.

    That's a little pricey.......and haven't we had the last couple meets down in Olympia? Why not something a little further north? If it's already "called", fine, but I'm tired of not being able to make these lunches because either the place is too expensive or the place is too damn far away. $4.50 for gas kinda wears your wallet thin, anddoesn't leave much room for anything else.

    It's 20 miles/minutes from Tacoma... 2 gallons of gas @ 20MPG.

    28.8 miles X 2@ 15 MPG = 3.84 gallons @ 4.50 = 17.28 + 12/person X 2 = $41.28

    Gets expensive quick doesn't it?

    I'll see if I can make it......why we keep having meetup after meetup in Olympia is beyond me though.........not exactly fair to people up in the North end.....they are worse off than I am in Tacoma......just saying.....something in the middle, like south or central King County would seem good for everyone over here.....we'd all probably end up driving close to the same distance. Something to keep in mind for future meets as gas just gets more and more expensive......

    There was the meet in Oly in December as a response to OPD jacking me up again and drawing a weapon. Then there was an informal meet in oly with just a few people. Then there was another informal meet with a few people. This would be the second formal meet in Thurston County IIRC.

    I think what happened here is nobody called the June meet so somebody did. You could have called it for Tacoma if you had acted earlier... :P

    That said it is getting difficult as there are more and more people OCing across the area. Maybe soon we can have regional meets that are as big as the usual monthly meet!

    Another option would be to take the bus down here.

    I'll be thinking of you all. I'll be in Florida, tending to the parents (and applying for a non-res permit). It's looking like this will be a recurringoccurrence as they're getting on in age.



    Have fun!

    Yeah... I know, but the place is called Main Chinese Buffet and most of that picture is filled with Sushi and Sashimi.

    Hey guys! I have never open carried before, but I have been talking with sv-libertarian on IM, and I think I am going to give it a try this weekend. I live like one minute from that restaraunt! I may be there with my wife, but not sure. How many people do we anticipate having there?

    Heck, I'm in Olympia for the next couple days. I'll try to make this one (even though I just went to main today. I love the sushi!).

    It'll give me a chance to try out my new Blackhawk CQC holster.

    We don't normally pick a place for a group OC unless they are OC friendly.

    We'll find out!

    I called, and arranged for seating for 15-20 people around 1PM.

    The response was, 'no problem, we'll push as many tables together as needed to keep everyone together'.

    I left my name, and number. I did NOT mention OC. Did I make an error in not mentioning it?

    No. Our carry method is normal so there is no need to ask permission to do what Article One Section 24 recognizes.

    No.┬* Our carry method is normal so there is no need to ask permission to do what Article One Section 24 recognizes.


    ┬*

    My thinking was along the same lines, we're not doing anything illegal, so it shouldn't matter. If it does become an issue, we can educate and inform. I think there might be a small cultural issue, but I think when it comes down to it, the almighty dollar and the 'well, we're good guys, at least you won't get robbed while we're here' might go a long way.

    If anyone needs transportation in the lacey/tumwater/olympia area I can oblige.
