    Location: Bronson Park (Parking adjacent to park and courthouse, as well as on the street)
    Date: Sunday, June 7, 2009
    Time: 1:00-4:00pm

    What to bring: Your Family/Kids!, A dish to pass (w/ serving utensils), your own plates/eating gear, your own drinks.

    Members, if you can, please be Open Carrying at this event. New members: This is a great time to break the ice, as you're among friends.

    The Kalamazoo Gazette will be running a story for this event.

    We have some members planning on bringing video cameras, however, we could use more. If anyone has a video camera they can bring, or an audio recorder, please do.

    I'll be bringing a tailgating grill, only fits about 8 burgers or about 20 dogs at a time. If others would like to bring one too, that would be handy.
    (which means burger meat, dogs, and buns are also needed)

    Otherwise, sandwich items are good for picnics.

    Edit:

    The Kalamazoo Gazette intends to run a preview of the event, and it will be listed in the community calendar on the day before it takes place (Saturday).

    Woohoo! A Kalamazoo event! I'll be there. I can bring one cooler (the cheap styrofoam kind) full of bottled water, and ice to keep it cool.

    Think you can count me in + 2 or 3 friends. I'll keep an eye on this for anything that will still need to be brought & do what I can.

    I'm doing a Kalamazoo Kings game @ 2:05 and need to be at the park by 12:30. I'll be glad to help setup or attend if we start a little bit earlier.

    Carry on

    Alright!

    We need some things still:

    A couple more bags of chips.
    Any type of side dish
    Bratwursts
    1-2 lb of ground beef (each pound yields about 4 burgers)
    1-2 packages of hot dogs

    Condiments! Yes! We need Ketchup, Mustard, Maybe cheese, Relish, Anything else people like on Hot Dogs and Burgers.

    I've got a couple bags of chips, but if there's 20 people, well... they may not go very far.

    I'm asking people to bring their own tableware and drinks, but one person is providing cold bottled water if you can't bring your own there.

    See you there!

    Is the food all being covered by a few people, or are we each supposed to bring a little something to grill?

    Well, I'm bringing some, but it's not going to be enough for all.

    I need someone to bring more, like a package of bratwursts, a couple packages of hot dogs, or a couple pounds of beef.

    I also need someone to bring BUNS.

    I can't be there but I just want to wish you all the best. I spend a lot of time in Kazoo and Portage and would like to see the local PDs get a handle on how to properly deal with lawful carry.

    Thanks for putting yourselves out there.

    Shame you can't make it. I have heard of some if not several positive "local PD" encounters with legal carriers, altho I think most of them were with CC-ers who've disclosed that they were armed. Regardless, more of them (officers)need to be better familiarized with lawful carry, I agree. Wish you could make it.

    Generally these picnics are pot lucks, bring a dish to share, your own beverages and table-wear.People should PM Springer XDacp know what you will be bringing so he can post it on the events thread.

    Be sure to have a video recorder and still cameras so you can post some pictures of all the fun.

    I have sent OC info to both the Kalamazoo and Portage PD's so they should be aware of lawful OC.

    The main purpose of these picnics is to HAVE FUN and meet people with similar interests.
