    Hi folks, thanks for organizing this - we hope to run radio ads over 3 stations (before your event)in the greater Green Bay - Appleton - Osh Kosh area - to do so we need at least $1,500, better $2,000 - we now $1,050 so we need at least a few hundred more dollaws

    if you all can pass the hat by passing this link at http://www.opencarry.org/carryland.htmlto your lists of friends and associates, we can help put open carry on the map in Green Bay.

    At http://www.opencarry.org/carryland.htmlyou can make donations in seconds by credit card.

    So far we have ..... ( please forgive any spelling errors)





    1 Landose

    1 Interceptor

    4 Sprayandpray (I have another 10 to contact and will update number of attendees as I go)

    1Protius

    2 Pepe54 Plus aide

    1 BNH computing ( Tater Salad)

    1 Woodchuck ( Chili)

    1 M9Shanalan (Chili, from the other thread)

    Please quote this post , put the number of people you expect to attend with you before your name and if you are bringing anything in parentheses after , so we can ATTEMPT keep track of how many and who is bringing what.... I will figure out what i am bringing once everyone chimes in to try and fill in some holes, At this point it looks like we need soda , Water , Plastic silverware, chips, ..........

    I am waiting to hear back from landose as to what he is bringing to grill and if he needs anyone to bring buns and such... I can also bring a grill if needed ( I also have a 2 burner outdoor cooker for the chili if someone wants me to bring it , remember we won't have electricity so crockpots wont work to keep the chili hot ), I have ruled out the kegerator full of root beer , Cause that just looks bad

    I also have my ice maker working overtime and filling up the freezer in the basement with ice, Between that and a few bar owners I know in green bay,I am sure I can arrange plenty of ice.

    Monday I think I am going tom throw together a Brochure and see about leaving it at some local gun stores / Ranges

    Should we be cross posting onother sites?I plan on Cross postingon Arfcom WiHTF... If you are a member of other pro gun sites I think we should be hitting them all .... Unless someone objects for some reason.

    Considering inviting a small group of the pink pistols ... nothing confuses Liberals more then gays with guns? Opinions?

    I am also working on a press release for the media , I have contacted a friend at The Press Gazette, and am going to send the release to all of the local stations, when it is done I will post it here, If anyone wants to use it to contact their local media.....

    So .... What are we forgetting?

    As we will be outside should we be picking a rain date?

    ( Also , Mods can we get this moved back to the Wisconsin Hometown forum? I think It will get more applicable traffic there , Maybe put up a post in the "Open carry brigade" section with a link to the thread in the HTF, I almost skipped looking at this thread today cause it showed the same 4 replies as yesterday, and I am sure others are doing the same thing)

    The link is still there; but everyone should be checking the board from the main page first, then hit the discussion forum and click "recent" - that brings up the hottest issues, and fact, this very thread is #1.

    That's where the press goes to check what's happenning

    I do believe that we are activly taking care of our "Fecal matter" Intercepter. Or would you rather everyone attending this event be cited for an ordinance violation? An ordinance violation I might add,that would have went entirely unnoticed if we werent for us members "Planning as a group"(Much thanks to Spray&Pray for finding that little ordinance btw).

    Changed to Bayshore Park





    Would that be Bayshore County Park or Bayshore Park. Apparently, there are two in the area.

    Not only does Brown County have the same language for "Public Meetings" requiring a permit in County Parks (only 10 days notice needed), but Brown County also has an Ordinance prohibiting the possession of firearms unless they are properly unloaded and encased.

    Negative. The County ordinanceis similar to and not more restrictive than the State ordinance (at least in the eyes of city and County DAs across the state). State Parks are regulated. We would need a test case with someone willing (time and resources) to fight it. If you are willing, please go ahead and carry in a Milwaukee County Park and then fight the inevitable citation so that we can have a very public test case. I frankly do not have the free time right now.
