    Since our first meet & greet went so well here in Lex. yesterday, I thought we might throw around the idea of doing a picnic-getting more OCer's out and including family members/spouses/kids, etc. I think Liberty4Ever mentioned this yesterday. Anyway, I'm not real sure about starting a poll for dates, etc. So, if someone would like to do that, it's fine. Maybe just start a discussion on what people would like to do.

    I was looking at the posting options. You have to add the poll when you start the thread. Not sure if you can edit a thread as the author and put the poll in. I'm up for a picnic just need to know well in advance to so I can plan accordingly.

    Got the litter pickup on the 21st of June. My opininon is that wehave it in July possibly the 11th. I know liberty4life has the dates the park isn't reserved so the best thing is to go off of dates not taken.

    Well, I'll do a couple more posts on this topic to keep it near the top. And then I'm done. If no one is interested, that's fine. maybe I'll try again later in the year.

    i'll do my best to be there as long as there is some notice so i can arrange my work schedule to be there, a picnic or BBQ sounds great to me ... also planning to do the Guns and Garbage thing on the 21st if i can get the time off work.. hopefully i'll see you guys at one or both of the events

    P.S.Dates, end of anywhere from Mid June to Late July would work for me (just allowing for time toget out of work)...as for locations a Jacobson Park shelter as Liberty4Ever had suggested in another post seems like a good location to me, or are you looking for another resteraunt type of setting ?

    If we can get a big enough group to commit we should try for the BBQ in the park. If not the restauraunt thing would be best. Meet at a different one every month testing the waters in different parts of lex. Just throwing some ideas out there.

    I hope we could do a picnic, etc. For those wanting to bring family/kids/friends, I believe something at a park would give us more options, etc. And location, well, I'm willing to travel, so it doesn't have to be in Lex. Let's all just throw out some ideas...

    I'm hoping a contractor will take the trees I've offered and clean a little from the ice storm. Ruined my Utopia.

    If he does his part, my land will be volunteered for a picnic. Got a nice pit, running water and a 140 yard shooting range. Pond and small wooded trails.

    The Louisville members of AR15.com have been holding OC dinners at Beef O'Brady's near Papa Johns Cardinal stadium for a couple of months now and next time we schedule one I'll post it here. The Northern KY ARFCOMers do the same thing near the Covington area.

    A lot of us are using the OC picnic at New Bethel Church as our June event so I'll keep everyone advised of our July dinner.

    Mid to Late July works best for me. I'm up for any place really! Preferably with an hour of Lex.

    Same here as I'm already driving 3+ hours so distance won't be too much of a deal for me. Late july would work for me also. Got a buddy I know who just started open carrying I'm sure he would come up with me as well.

    The contractor hasn't showed yet. I gave him the wood and told him to harvest any standing pine for cleanup servicesonly. ????

    Sorry I'm late to this thread. I should check in more often! Work and life have been busy lately. I was planning on getting serious about an open carry picnic right after Guns And Garbage, which was yesterday. I did some research about Jacobson Park shelter availability and came here to start a thread and found this one had been going for three weeks.

    The 1 and 2 shelters at Jacobson are booked on Saturdays and Sundays through at least September. These are the high traffic shelters near the lake. I thought they'd be good if the goal was to do a little public education while we have a fun picnic. Almost all Friday evenings are available, and other weekdays as well if anyone wants to have an evening picnic.

    Shelter 3 has some Saturday and Sunday slots available in August and September. Ditto for shelter 4, which is also available Sunday the 5th of July. Shelter 5 has some Saturdays and Sundays open in August and September, and is also available Sunday, July 26th. Shelter 6 has some Saturdays and Sundays in August and September.

    If this is more of a social function and less a public education event, then we could have a picnic anywhere. Smaller Lexington parks like Constitution Park on the north side have barbecue grills and don't need reservations. If someone is offering private property for a picnic with an adjacent shooting range, that's a very tempting offer.

    I registered online with the Lexington Parks Department. What a hassle. In a few days, when they approve my registration, I can reserve a shelter if we decide to go that route. Government....

    One other thing.... As kind as TheMrMitch was to offer the use of his property, Hodgenville is a fairly long drive for those of us around Lexington. We might get better attendance if we had a picnic closer to a larger population center, and it would definitely provide a lot more opportunity to educate the public about their right to keep and bear arms.

    I have a good one page handout that explains the federal, state and local gun laws in Kentucky. That could be a handy educational tool if someone was sure an open carry picnic wasn't legal but didn't know the laws off the top of their head. I've seen that a bit too often. People think they know the law but all they really know is what's usual, not what's legal. We could show them the law and do some educating.

    Liberty-Thanks for my copy you gave me yesterday at the G&G event. It's VERY informative and I can see myself showing/giving them to the uneducated. I have already made copies...many copies. thanks!

    And a picnic in Lex. at Jacobson sounds great.
