    Below is a link to a map at mapquest, Googlemaps has it way down the road. Anyways, my place is between Hogeye and Uriah on the west side of the road.. Mapquest shows that Dry Creek Rd joins with Uriah and Suzette. It does not, so don’t try it.

    Time: Saturday,Oct. 10th, 10AM - 6PM.



    http://www.mapquest.com

    Link wasn't working. Just go to the link and type in the address.

    My address is:



    1384 Upper Elgin River Rd. (Also known as County Rd 127)

    Elgin, Tx 78621



    Here’s the short list of rules.



    1. There will be no unholstering except in 1 designated area.

    2. This area will be roped off with a table for disassembly for demonstration and/or cleaning. Bring your own cleaning materials. (One person at a time. Don’t hog it.)

    3. Anyone that unholsters outside of this area will be asked to leave.

    4. Anyone that has a negligent/accidental discharge will be asked to leave if no injury or property damage. If property damage or injury results, you will be asked to relinquish your weapon until it is resolved.

    5. Bring your long guns. They must be unloaded and will be for demonstration purposes only. Another tableWILL be set up for the long guns.

    6. Bring a portable chair and/or table would probably help. I’ll have some.

    7. Keep track of your stuff. If you leave it, it will be sold on Ebay. LOL. Not really, just contact me and if it is here I will try my best to get it to you.

    8. [/b]No alcohol or drugs, period. [/b]

    9.[/b]PM me with RSVP and how many in your party.


    10. Open Carry will not be a requirement.[/b]

    Hey, what time are we looking at? Also, I was thinking it might be cool to snap some photos like other groups have done.

    I was thinking say 10AM - 6PM. But that is negotiable if anybody has any other ideas.

    That would mean thatfar awayfolks wouldn't have to leave too early and still get here to enjoy some of the BBQ, and would have time to get home before it gets too late. We can eat around 3PM or so.

    Anybody with other suggestions need to speak up now.

    Only 2 people have said they are coming. You and Crossfire.

    If my nephew's wife is not working, she will be here with her pro photo stuff I'm sure. I'll let you know, but I'm sure that somebody else will bring a camera as well.

    I've decided to invite the folks at TexasGunTalk as well.

    Well, I am definitely going to try to attend, but you see, my wife is due to deliver our second child on the 13th of October.

    Depending on how things work out, I may be able to attend.

    Sounds like a great idea and a great time. Kudos to rodbender for setting it up.

    Also, it's veryinteresting how gun control (rules/regs/penalties/standards/collateral rules) makes sense at times. And from certain perspectives.

    Darn ironic, really.

    No thanks is necessary. This will be just as much fun for me as it will be for you guys. At least I hope we all have fun.

    Below is a copy of the email I sent to invite Debra Medina to the BBQ on the 10th. If and when I get a reply, you guys will be notified.

    I've been through your website fairly thoroughly and I liked what I saw.I alsohappened to notice that you had nothing planned for Oct. 10, not officially anyways. It just so happens that I am hosting a BBQ for the folks at http://www.opencarry.org. Most will be carrying their sidearms in the open, the way it is suppose to be done.I have been asked to invite you along with members of the Texas legislature. It seemsthere are someat OCDOthat liked what they saw as well.This BBQ will be held at my home. Please consider this an official invitation to join us. It will be from 10AM until 6PM. If you are interested in attending or just dropping by for a few minutes, let me know and I will send you my address, or you can find it at the link below.

    This is Debra Medina's first response to my invitation to the BBQ. Actually one of her staff. I sent my invitation at 8:41 PM Friday. This Replywas at 11:08 PM Friday.

    Dear Mr. Patterson,



    Thank you for contacting the Medina for Texas Campaign and for your invitation for Debra to attend your BBQ on October 10. I will check the schedule and get with Debra and getback with you soon to let you know whether she will be able to attend or not.



    Best regards,

    Terri Mund
    Scheduler/Office Manager
    Debra Medina for Texas Governor Campaign
    terri@medinafortexas.com
    979-531-9677


    This was her second response at 11:24 PM Friday.

    Well Mr. Patterson,



    Obviously Debra did not have to think about this invitation very long! She is available and is looking forward to attending your BBQ!



    I have a few questions I need to ask youbefore I complete the scheduling request. Would you like for her to speak at the BBQ? If so, for how long and on any specific topic? Would it be appropriate for us to publically post your event on our website's"Events" page and invite Debra's "We Texan"supporters to join herthere? That may be quite a few folks. Would there be a cost?Would they need to RSVP?



    I have attached our Event Information form. If you would, please complete the information and send it to me with the additional information requested above. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.



    I look forward to working with you on this event.



    Best regards,

    Terri Mund
    Scheduler/Office Manager
    Debra Medina for Texas Governor Campaign
    terri@medinafortexas.com
    979-531-9677

    Everyone should invite their rep and senator. Post the replies here so I can let her know who will be attending.

    I won't be there due to distance but would lie to echo the Kudis to Rodbender. I also would like to point out the irony of having to create and post these rules for an OC BBQ. The rules sound a lot like laws, especially the confiscation of one's weapon before being found guilty or innocent.

    If someone has a ND/AD, I think it is clear that he/shehas violated one of the four rules and I, for one, don't want anyone to have access to a firearm that can't follow4 simple rules. Especially if the life of one of my guests, family, or myself is at stake. I am the ultimate responsible party at this event.

    If you don't like the rules I have set forth, stay home. You won't be missed.

    I dunno, trying to take away some law abiding citizen'spersonal gun in public in the event of an ND/AD would usually have to go through a some kind of adjudication process. Apparently, that's not the law at this particular function.

    I like the sentence:

    "If you don't like the rules I have set forth, stay home. You won't be missed."

    What an uproar we would have if some retailer or restaurant were to tell an OCer that!

    And, don't forget....this is the "short list rules." That implies thatthere are other "rules."No doubt thoseother rules will be concoctedon an as needed, and possibly instantaneous basis. Hmmm, kind of likethe cops do sometimes. Don't we allhate that?


    I hope everyone has a great time.

    At first I didn't think I could make it- the 16 hour roundtrip drive would betough - until I realized TTU will be shutdown for some random holiday on October 12-13 (that gives me a 4-day weekend). Oooh man I'm gonna be talkin to the wife when she gets home tonight!! I just hope that my new .45 (the one set as my avatar)comes in by October so I can show it off to everyone (at the gun cleaning table).

    BTW, it's my understanding that this event going to be hosted BY rodbender and on HIS property? I think that everyone should respect the rules he has posted, whether or not you agree with them. If I tell someone they can't smoke in my house and they don't like it, well they can simply leave. Is that rude of me? We can't always think OUR rights are the only rights. Property rights are extremely important to our freedom.

    HankT, you have to take into account that this is not property generally open to the public.

    This is more like a personal residence than a business. Hence, no outrage.

    If a business was to post a set of rules at the door with that particular sentence following it, I would not be outraged. I would simply follow the rules or go away. It's not my property. Why would anyone be outraged?

    The "SHORT LIST" is just that, "SHORT". I could come up with some more if you like. I thought of a lot of them, but kept it down to the bare minimum. You see, just because it's a short list doesn't mean that there are more to come.

    If I were on someones property as a guest and had a ND, I would be asking someone to take control of the firearm until I could figure out why I was so stupid as to allow it to happen, property damage or not.

    I'm not asking anyone to do what I would not do.
