    BurtonOC Picnic

    Where To Meet: Kelly Lake
    When: Sunday, August 23, 2009
    Time: 12:00 Noon - ?

    I haven't been able to locate an exact address for the park, but I'm sure one of the other members here can supply a link witha map.

    I reserved the pavillion today for this date while I was at city hall. If this date is not going to be good for a lot of people, we can always change it. The book for pavillion reservations was very empty!

    Ok, I didn't realize there was a picnic in Auburn Hills on the9th, so we'll change the Burton picnic to the 23rd. I guess I shouldn't have put the picnic date in the title since it can't be changed. Live & learn, I guess!

    I don't think August 9th would be a good date for Kelly Park. There are two events for the 9th, one is River Woods in Auburn Hills and the other is Westfield Park in Portage. Portage is no big deal due to the fact it's located on the west side of the state. I think most who would attend Kelly Park are also the ones who will be at River Woods.

    Perhaps the 16th or the 23rd would be better. Whichever date you decide to choose, let me know if I can be of any help. I'll put it in the Events Thread when you getfeedback from the membership on an appropriate date.

    yep, I noticed the Auburn Hills picnic on the 9th after I posted. I totally missed it in the events schedule when I was picking a date. I've changed it to the 23rd for now. If that doesn't seem to be good for people, we'll try another date.

    Been hoping to see another of these in the Flint area. Unfortunately for me, the 23rd is my Sunday to work. If this date holds, I might just have to burn a personal day.

    $$$$$$ the root of all evil! I say we start using the barter system! Hope to see you there. Are you ever going to drag the Mrs. to one of these things?

    I try, but it's not really her thing...so to speak. She supports me fully but not really involved.

    I was PMing back and forth with one of the OC.org people in Wisconsin; he said that they hope to get to the point that, like us, it's tough to find a weekend where there isn't an OC event taking place somewhere else. My point is that the success that we are having in Michigan shows that we have multiple events going on around the state: keep up the good work.

    I think SpringerXDacp is right in that people will be interested in an event that is close to them. As the get-togethers become more popular, the time is going to come that there may be multiple events within an hour drive of anyone. :celebrate

    Perhaps then Venator won't be driving all over the state and can stay a little closer to home.
    Giving up our liberties for safety is the one sure way to let the violent among us win.

    The use of force is a last resort. One aspect of violence is that it is unpredictable. Although your initial intention may be to use limited force, once you have engaged in violence the consequences are unpredictable. Violence always brings about unexpected results and almost always provokes retaliation.

    We are a new Christian motorcycle club called "In God We Trust" We don't preach and we don't thump the Bible. We believe in Christ and we ride. We are a mixture of men and women that believe in our commandments as well as our bill of rights and we fully support our second and fourth ammendments. We are based in Fowlerville and we would be thrilled to attend and support this cause. Several of us carry and we all shoot. What can we bring and what time. We will show up on bikes but they are big bikes and we even use them when we grocery shop so we can bring plenty.

    We would be happy to have you join us! Please note, I made the mistake of putting the date of this picnic in the title of the thread & now I'm not able to change that info. The picnic is on August 23rd, not the 9th.

    here is the list of who has signed up to bring items so far:

    Gas Grill - SpringerXDacp
    Charcoal Grill -

    Hamburgers/Buns - SpringerXDacp
    Brats/Buns-

    Hotdogs/Buns -
    Condiments -
    Paper Plates -

    Napkins/Towels -

    Plastic Utensils -
    Pop - SpringerXDacp
    Water - SpringerXDacp
    Snacks -
    Coolers - SpringerXDacp
    Ice - SpringerXDacp
    Camera -
    Video Recorder -




    what ever you would like to bring, please post & we will get you added to the list. Any type of side dishes would also be great!

    Just for my own curiosity, how many people do you think will be attending from your group? The more the merrier!

    Here is the link to all events that are scheduled:
