    Folks, Lori, our spokesmodel, has found an awsome location and deal for our SECOND bill board - in Houston near where Lori lives.

    But it get's better - for only $2,000 we can get the vinyl created AND 2 full months of bill board advertizing.

    Please go to http://www.opencarry.org/houston.htmland give today - we need the money before i can authorize Lori to signt eh contract as our authorized Houston agent for OpenCarry.org.

    NOTE: If you give (in one gift) $10 you will gain the "activist member" moniker; $100 get's you "Founders Club" status.

    Let's Roll! The sooner we get it up, the sooner we can plan an event in the Houston area.

    I just did $10 without reading the whole message. I'll send another $90 if it will give me the $100 "Founders Club" status as I don't think I can cancel the $10 in PayPal unless you can refund it. Let me know before I do it please.

    My husband and I are planning on moving to TX in 18 months so we're just laying the ground work (getting involved) so to speak.

    Thanks,
    Lynn

    Wahoo! Looks you guys came thru on the Houston bill board!

    Lori - go ahead and execute that contract and I can pay them - let's discuss by email as this goes forward.

    Folks - take a look at all three fund raiser Lori-Meters - you will see deadlines on each Lori-meter indicating when we need certain funds and by when - as you can see, it looks like we are OK for now on the Houston bill board and Austin Taxis, but by 1 OCT we need another $725 or so for the I-35 bill board (they need us to fund contrat extensions 4 weeks ahead of time). So that is the next target to fund - I-35 billboard by 1 OCT, see http://www.opencarry.org/billboard.htmlto pay now. Thanks!

    NOTE: We have over 9,000 OCDO members - many of whome have donated repeatedly, and some of you have donated paid anything at all. Please consider paying at least $10 and your moniker will be updated to "Activist Member."

    The $100 one time contribution makes you an elite"Founder's Club Member."

    Once we have progress in Texas, retoring open carry in the remaining 5 states will be much much easier, as will enforcing your righ tto open carry in other states.

    Thanks to all that participated in Bullsye Brookie's digital voice recorder raffle at Red Hot and Blue in Leesburg, VA today. Tess's husband won it. We had $40.00 left over so that will be sent to OCDO Billboard fund from us all.

    Please update YOUR member status as to location (add City and state in your profile). This is important.
