    EDIT: Spokane Open-Carry Lunch on Saturday July 18th at noon.

    The Onion. Downtown: 302 W Riverside Ave


    So I was at the July 4th Tea-Party at Plantes Ferry Park in Spokane Valley today (OC of course) and ran into a few folks from these forums there and met some new folks who enjoy their rights and are interested in open-carry. I was wearing a grey anti-Washington DC T-shirt with the 10th amendment on the back and carrying my H&K USP Tactical, so that should help put the face to the handle here on the forums.

    We figured it's time for another OC event here in Spokane sometime this month. We've done OC events at The Onion and Cyrus O'Leary's in the past and had positive (or at least non-negative) experience with them.

    It was great meeting you and your dad today, I was glad to see you and the others carrying today at the Tea Party. I had a lot of people comment on how cool it was to see someone exercising thier rights and 1 comment "could the open carry people come to every event because he felt a lot safer". All total I counted 6 peopleOC and 1 with an empty holster.

    I am up for lunch onthe 18th but my daughter is getting married on the 25th so no go.

    It was great seeing you there as well, Orphan. I also met the gentleman who said that he felt safer having us there open-carrying. I spotted several people concealed-carrying, but only got to talk to a few of them about open-carry before they went separate ways.

    I just remembered I also have a prior engagement covering the entire weekend of the 25th so it will have to be the 18th. (I suppose August 1st would be alright too, if the 18th is not enough notice.) I'll change my original post to reflect that.

    Shad0wfax,

    I also met you and your father at the tea party and I appreciate you posting this as it was a topic of conversation between us. I would be available the 18th and we are fans of the Onion. I might also suggest Wingers out here in the Valley.

    Again, I enjoyed meeting you and your dad and hope to meet more forum members soon.

    I missed the TEA party. It is good to see some activity in Spokane concerning OC. July 18th is good for me.

    So far that's five people for July 18th around noon. I'll edit the original post to reflect that. Let's get some more folks interested!

    Has anyone contacted the Onion about reserving a table? We could have around 10 people. With the wheelchair games in town they could be very busy.

    How about the Onion on Division, just to get away from the special event activitys.

    Reservation made at the downtown onion for noon, I made it for 15 just in case. The reservation is under open carry crew.

    I think the events downtown are more of a reason to do it downtown, disabled veterans of our armed forces, what a better way for us to show respect and gratitude for their sacrifices.

    Thanks for making the reservation. When I checked today they said there already was a reservation, so I was pleasantly surprised.

    Myself and another veteran both open-carried at (and were removed from) the wheelchair slalom races earlier this week. There's a thread on it.

    Manu,
    The lunch went well. We had 11 people, 9 OC. Did get some looks and handed out a couple of pamphlets. Talked about an issue with the Spokane Transit, they are coming around, but more work needs to be done. The event you had last Saturday reads a lot more exciting then our lunch. Keep up the good work.

    No pictures and no incidents. I am, however, looking forward to the State L&I Diversity Fair OC excursion some of us are taking on August 4th. You should come along if you can.
