    Yes he did say last weekend in June. I know that the Traverse city picnic is that weekend also. I won't be able to make the trip up north, but I do plan on making the festival in Roseville.

    I will be able to work a table one of the days, I just won't know which day until it's a little closer to the date. Most likely Saturday, but I'll let you know.

    Jeff. All,
    I was just informed that Roseville does not allow open carry. May be a problem. Has anyone checked with the local LEO's as to what the think or expect on this. Just trying to head off any possible conflicts or issues.

    We chatted with the friendly Roseville police before the litter clean up, so I'd say future problems are unlikely.

    Keep in mind that state law preempts local gun ordinances, so even if they have one, it is meaningless, and nothing to concern yourself with.

    Thanks for mentioning this dsmith, if there is a specific ordinance you are aware of please let us know and we will work on getting it off the books. Or, you could go after it yourself and put a notch in your belt!

    No, not specific. But I will research it this week. I took my CPL class today and they stated that Roseville PD is against open carry. But I will definitely look into it this week and get back to you on it. And knowing how they are about crusing and everything else, it would not surprise me any. Bu I will get back to you the first of the week.

    I'll be able to volunteer, most likely Saturday. I just need to know when the hours are. I sent Ed a message, I'll let you know more when I hear back. If anyone else is interested in working a table, even if it's just for a short time, let me know.

    Heard back from Ed. It looks like hours are going to be from 12-6 Friday thru Sunday.
    It would be nice to do Saturday and Sunday but if there's not a lot of interest in doing this event maybe we can just go for Saturday. I can be there Saturday from 12-4 possibly until 6. Don't suppose there's a banner around that we can use?

    If the main goal is to have people there to represent MOC, or just plain open carrying, we could definitely have different people there at different times. Since Geraldet can be there saturday, I could be there all day sunday, even if no other OCers come out that day. Definitely better to have 2 or 3 people, but I've got no problems being the only OCer there if it means more information can be passed out.

    Hey everyone, sorry I slipped into a black hole for a while there. Anyway, I just spoke with Ed and the hours for his fair will be from 12:00 until 6:00 each day with Sunday expected to be very slow. The Gratiot Cruise is going on this weekend as well. While it is officially scheduled to run from 8 mile to 10 mile (the studio is at 12 mile) I expect, and Ed agrees, that there will likely be a good deal of residual traffic going by.

    He said he does have a table we can use to lay out bochures and other items. I tried to find out about getting some official MOC merchandise to sell but haven't gotten a response!

    If anyone is going to be there Friday, I can stop by at 5:00 mostly just to say hi I guess. Unfortunately, it looks like Saturday is going to be to the wall for me but I will try to get there for a few hours either at the opening or before close. I will not be able to make Sunday, as it is going to be my first father's day and I will be hanging out with my little one.
