    This coming sunday, the 11th, I'd like to have an informal lunch or breakfast meeting in Flint. I'm thinking the Capitol coney, southeast corner of Van Slyke, and Bristol, just a hair east of US 23. Any takers?

    I'm going to the Pit that day, so count me and some friends as a maybe. But if this pesky ass cold isn't gone by then, I'll skip the coney trip, because I don't want to give it to anyone else.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    Can I come? I would'nt want to embarass anyone by "bringing on the rain", so to speak. After all, I seem to be getting a rep for drawing attention. (gotta be the hat)

    You should set this up and have it posted on the events thread. It might also be a good idea to start having an alternate place to go if we are asked to leave/cover up....just in case. Then if needed we can all leave en mass and meet at the alternate site. Just a suggestion.

    Of course, just leave the hat in the car, k?

    I was considering Venus originally, but if we have a large group, we'd have to get several adjacent booths. It might be a good backup location. Also, there is the Golden Buffet, on Fenton, north of Hemphill.

    I just got around to reading your experience at the Home Depot last April, and am impressed by how you handled Mr. Chief. You are welcome anytime, Warchild.

    I'll do my best to be there.



    FYI - if ANYBODY is asked to leave or cover up, I will be leaving.. even the rest of the group decides to stay (which is absolutely OK)

    I will bring my envelope full of the info flyers to pass out. Also just in case, if we are asked to cover or leave, I will make it a point to leave one for the manager to review while he's thinking about the money he just lost.

    Sorry the hat stays on, my hairline gets cold.:P

    We'll try to get you a proper seat this time Jerry & not leave you hanging out in the aisle!

    Also Jerry, if you're not planning on attending the Family Firearms day, could you bring along some extra flyers so we can hand them out there? I promise I'll keep one for myself & make my own copies for "next time".

    And as an alternate get together spot that is close by with lots of room, if we've already ate & still want to chat, we could skip on down to Donna's Donuts.

    FYI, I posted the Flint "meet & eat" as a MOC event on the new FaceBook group site. Let me know if this attracts anyone to the meeting - I expect it will not.

    I'm going to switch over to tentative. I have plans to go to the gun show in Birch Run with a friend, so I'm not sure if the timing will work out.

    We are meeting at noon. I'm gonna guess you can get breakfast then if you like. That is my intention!

    Set up another meeting for Westside sometime soon. I'm sure you'll get some positive responses.

    My cold is almost gone, but I'm a maybe at this point. Might have to go blow some snow in the morning, so I might be running out that way a bit late. But if I do come, I'll bring 2 people with me.

    I'll be there. I'll have a small table flag (paper) with the MOC on it. I'll set it on the table so our members can find the group, although we will most likely be the only ones OCing
