    What a great time.

    We'd been there fifteen or twenty minutes when ... here come the cops. "Hi guys. Not sure if you are aware, but there are no ... (suspenseful pause) ... dogs allowed in the park after 10 am."

    :? Us. "Oh. OK. Sorry. Have a nice day."

    I for one had a great time. According to the pictures we had thirteen guys, plus three wives, plus one son, so a good turnout, especially on such short notice.































    And no, the girl in the last picture is NOT carrying a firearm. I checked carefully as she walked by.

    That's what the president was doing in the now famous photo. At least that might be what he would have said he was doing.

    Yup, good times where had by all.

    It was kinda funny when we noticed the cops everyone went straight for the cameras. Also, for some reason I think that that whole "no dogs after 10am" was kind of BS because by the time I left there where dogs everywhere.

    Anyways, had a great time and cant wait to do it again.

    On a unrelated note, after getting home and having dinner I get a knock on the door and when I went to answer it there was 2 officers outside my place. Turns out they where looking for someone who I never heard of but when I first opened the door I defiantly had a big WTF? moment.

    It doesn't make you look fatter but it prints like crazy at the shoulders and along the center of mass. There are much more discreet carriers out there to put your soft-panels in.

    And a Special thanks to Bellingham PD officers Doughtry & Smith I think, for only policing dogs. Maybe the Chief up there should make them Training Officers.

    Someone said the park had a "No Firearms Sign". You can see from the photos that really bothered us.:P

    I am still not sure our work is done up there. They havemany more parks.

    sorry I've not responded before this, I've been busy replacing a hard drive & re-loading all my software for the past 15 hours or so....

    yes, it is a FiveSeven...one of 3 that were at the picnic

    there were several different groups that we "informed", and some members of both groups were extremely interested in not only joining us online, but showing up in Sea-Tac on saturday as well.

    funniest thing? a woman flagged me down as I was heading to the restroom & wanted to know "who's the important person?"....told her no one & she said, but you have a gun..when I told her we all had guns, her statemennt was, "I know, so who's the super important person you are all guarding?"...that and the "people with guns AND dogs :what:



    worst thing? been starting to have some problems with my camera & the zoom...was pointing it at various areas of the park when I start getting a ration of fecal material about "don't even think about taking pictures of my daughter" from a guy in a group right next to us. I've contributed the "attitude" to 2 things....1) extreme intake of Busch ice beer 2) I think they were still pissed that we didn't "hurry up" so they could have our table/grill & they pretty much ended up sitting on the ground :celebrate:celebrate...that and to damned much food

    Good pics, well not so good of me...lol...Great group lots of fun....only had the MWAD call Man with a dog. Some folks I talked to said they pretty much made a b-line straight to us. And it was none of the officers invovled in my incidents.

    My wife enjoyed it so much she might take time off work Saturday to join the SeaTac one. So I just might get lucky enough to be there.

    So sad that the lady didn't realize that her, like everyone there, are super important people that deserve as much protection as those ass clown politicians who think they're so important.
