    Hello All!

    I am rather new here, but have been OC'ing in the Fayetteville area for the last two months or so. I've only been asked to leave K'Mart, but that was no surprise.

    I was wondering if anyone would be interested in an OC get together somewhere in the Fayetteville or Raleigh/Durham area?

    Weekends are the only time really a go for me. Perhaps the Saturday of the 27th? Any suggestions? I would love to get together with some other OC'ers and enjoy some good food.

    Take care!

    -John V.

    We have been talking about organizing something like that for awhile now, but for some reason it never takes off. I believe a few of us would be interested in a get together in Raleigh/Durham, but no one has the time to put forth the effort of organizing.

    If you organize it, they will come. However, the 27th is bad for me, due to prior commitments.

    Yeah, it was K-Mart in Fayetteville. The security guy (retired First Sergeant) was very polite and respectful. When I asked to see the corporate policy for it he showed me the employee manual. No where in there did it say that CUSTOMERS can't carry, but he said that he had been told to ask people to take it off, or leave the store. I was asked to leave, so I did. Not surprising, but oh well. Thats been the only instance.

    My wife and I carry openly from time to time and would love to get together with a group who's not afraid to exercise their rights.

    I would be there. Just pick a time and place. Coffee and Cigars would be great.

    I think it would be fun. I have never OC yet, but I plan on trying to do it soon, I'm just trying to read up on all the laws first.

    Let me toss my hat in the ring too. It'd be great to meet some of you other local OCDO characters, schedule permitting.

    Raleigh and Greensboro are the same ~1 hr. drive for me. Anything in between, even better.

    Which one, and when would everyone like to meet? A central Raleigh location would be nice. That way people aren't having to drive all the way across Raleigh. Unfortunately I will be out of town this weekend...And Thursday is out for me. Maybe we should try to organize it next week sometime, that way everyone will have time to check their schedules...

    I would like to come, but I still need at least a 1 week advance, perferably 2, to take off work.

    How about the 2nd week in November sometime? That will give everyone a chance to see this thread and look at their schedules...Maybe November 12th or 13th?

    I can get one more person to do it also. Maybe two more people.

    We could do something in my town if people wanted. I know the chief of police and would let him know that it would be going on and not to worry if people called saying "there are x number of guys with guns." That is for a different thread though.

    I'd love to do it around the Fayetteville area with a group. Meeting for a bite to eat at a place like Smithfields BBQ would work for me. No extra planning for anyone - just show up and socialize. Most Saturdays would work nicely for me.

    I hope it gets off the ground. I'm looking forward to it!

    I'd be up for an OC meet in Fayetteville. I generally don't have the free time to go to Raleigh/Cary, so it would have to be local for me.
