    We currently have 15 known members who reside in Colorado Springs! There are probably a few more from neighboring areas, and perhaps more who simply don't have their cities listed.

    I'd like to get together on January 23, this Saturday, around 8am, for breakfast and to meet and greet as many of you who can attend.

    I've not done much OC here in the Springs, so I'm not sure which restaurant, or which area in town would be preferable. I'd like to stick with eggs and pancakes, though, but I'm open to anything, really.

    Anyone interested? If so, please suggest a good location.

    Thanks, and hope to see you there!

    Oh, and everyone who can make the drive from further locations, like Denver, is welcome to attend!

    I will try to come. Since I'm from Conifer I can't help with location or restaurant. Maybe a little later also, say 0900-1000.

    I also may be abletoattend as well. But being from Highlands Ranch, I also don't know the places available down there. 9 or 10 am is fine with me as well.

    I'm interested.

    I'm pretty open as to when and where, but do not know which businesses are "friendly."

    I second that. Let's shoot for 10am. Waking up at 7:30am on Saturday just isn't that appealing to me.

    As far as a place, what about the Cracker Barrel where Academy meets Voyager Pkwy. It's right next to I-25 so that would be helpful for people that are outside of the Springs.

    The address on that Cracker Barrel is 8355 Razorback Road, Colorado Springs, CO for you GPS users.

    I've OC'd to Cracker Barrel before w/o problems. Besides I don't think they would refuse the business of all of us.

    Thanks to Ian, for the suggestion. Turns out, it's not far from where I live. : )

    Cracker Barrel

    8355 Razorback Drive

    Colorado Springs, CO 80920-3953
    Map

    Directions: Take I-25 to Exit 150 at theSouth Gate of the USAF Academy, but head EAST, away from the Academy, on N. Academy Blvd. That's a right if you're northbound on I-25, and a left if you're southbond. Whatever you do, if you find yourself heading towards the south gate at the Academy, turn around before you get there!

    About 400 yards East of theoverpass, while on N. Academy Blvd, make a left on Hwy 83 (Voyager) as if you were going to the Wal-Mart, but then make your first left onto Razorback Rd, near the Howard-Johnson.

    Go past the Howard-Johnson and follow the road as it makes a sharp left. Cracker Barrel will be on your right, before you reach the Super 8, Drury Inn, or McDonalds.

    Bring your appetites!

    If you can't make it to this meeting, MountainMan, I've got a fairly free schedule, and would be happy to meet with you (and possibly others) at another time.

    Please let me know.

    All are welcome, Ian! Tell your friend we're merely having breakfast, and that it's not an arms demonstration - It's breakfast.

    In fact, if someone wants to attend, but is leery about wearing arms, come anyway, and get a feel for what it's all about.

    Thee meeting was a success, with a total of seven showing for what turned out to be an enjoying breakfast amidst conversation centered mostly around our favorite topic of choice. That didn't stop a lot of side conversations about everthing from building construction codes, circuit boards, livinging here in Colorado, and especially the Springs.

    I was glad to meet each and every one of you! I hope to organize another meet in February, perhaps getting together for some afternoon range time followed by dinner. Alternatively, we could do a lunch/range. I'm all ears.

    Absolutely! When's your first free month back?


    If no one else organizes in a couple of days, I'll be putting forth one for later this month.

    I've open carried at IHOP next to Chapel Hills Mall at all hours of the day and night and they're perfectly happy with that.

    What I was thinking, however, is to open carry at the IHOP near the Citadel Mall, a show of support as they were recently robbed. As an added benefit, it's closer to Dragonman's, where I thought we'd adjourn for some range time afterwards.
