    I'm starting this thread to pass the word that I'm going to work with SprinklerGuy to come up with protocols which would be best practices for setting up and coordinating events. The last 2 events Lansing & BC in our minds were still a success. The communities are behind us and many people out there are responsive to what we're doing. I'm going to spend some time today coming up with a draft and then I'll run it by SprinklerGuy. Once we've come up with a perfected document and we've let the Vernator and others review it and they approve we'll post it for everyone to read.

    With the TV3 interviews and the press coverage of the march and what took place at the dinner location should bring attention not only to our rights as law abiding gun owners in Michigan but also the lengths at which the childish behavior of some police officers will go to in order to try and silence us. These officers will be exposed soon. More details to follow.

    SprinklerGuy and I both feel that this summer is going to be huge for the MOC and our numbers will grow considerably and with that I feel the above is an important step in order for us to continue to be viewed as the law abiding and to keep things positive for the cause!

    I agree with the above thread, it is time to continue to make improvements to the open carry movement.

    And as for the police, it is a shame that a few can make the whole police force look like the keystone cops.( and shame on the police for costing that business 11 customers)

    And i also agree any changes should always go thru the miocdo for review, as we must stay on the same page.

    I believe this summer we need to get as many members together as possible i mean ive seen some events with 20+ people but i think we need to find a date soon for this summer that we can get 90 percent of the people on moc to gather for an event paying and none paying members here are 500 plus people registered in the michigan forum if we got half of them together and got the media in on it it would be wonderful

    This is a wonderful idea! Kind of like an Open Carry Convention!! Wouldn't Lansing or the immediate local be the most central...
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Lansing would be a location or I personally think Belle Isle as it is in Detroit and easy access for local media to cover.
    Im also discussing with a few Detroit businesses for MOC reserved parking arrangements for the Detroit Fireworks.

    Ahhhhh Detroit fireworks. Didnt even think of that! The best thing about that is it's a free event with a ton of people where we could pass out fliers as well.

    You know what the problem with the events thread is right? The problem is there are a massive pile of things in there and it takes a major examination to be able to locate stuff. Personally I feel it's very non-user friendly. An event organized event thread would work but not 200 other things with it.

    Sprinklerguy is right about Detroit. This is something that we have talked about before. At the start of the summer we will be having a LARGE gathering on Belle Isle to kick off the summer events. My hope is to get 300 people at least.

    I can put the Previous OC Events and Corporate Policies in their own threas, but I don't think we need anymore stickies in our Michigan sub-forum. I'm always open to suggestions though.

    Please do, put each topic in it's own thread. It needs to be done, same as I did with the info thread. Too many posts to glean the info you're looking for.

    I agree the upcoming events need their own thread. I would list the elected and appointed MOC leadership as the first post with each individuals MOC email address. Then follow it with upcoming events only listing which of the MOC leadership is the contact person for the event.

    I agree with both you and Jerry.However, if the two threads are not stickied, it would require bumping constantly and the threads with get mucked up rather quickly. It's absolutely impossible to maintain an organized events thread when other members post in them. Thoughts?

    Is there any way you could have "exclusive control" of any particular thread?

    Or we could create our own complete list of topic threads on MOC and cross link to other threads, if this is possible.

    I don't think so, it's either all or nothing for moderation, as far as I know. As for MOC dot org, I would need to have access to the site which I doubt would happen any time soon. Personally, I feel comfortable with posting here for all to see--Michigan and other States as well.

    Ok, how about extracting the needed info from the threads, create a new Info thread and have the MOD delete the existing one? My info thread could be pasted to the new file and deleted after.
    We will have to stern about using the info thread as a discussion thread.

    That would work IMO. Creating two new threads and removing two would be OK.

    For now, I think I'm going to hold off on that for a day or two to allow other opinions to surface. Obviously, there's some "behind the scenes" discussion taking place in regards to events threads. I'm going to wait and see how this all pans out. I suspect in a very short period of time event threads--on here or elsewhere--will be performed by another member.

    No, you are our events coordinator.

    If you are going to attempt some consolidation, put the longer lists in pdf format. It takes up less room and the reader can download for himself.

    It's not a big concern of mine who does what here, all I would ever ask is that any member who decides he or she is better qualified than I--in the best interest of the OC movement, MOC, etc--come forwardand addressthose options/positions.

    It's already well known to several members here that my time is most likely limited as to how much longer I can continue with the events thread. When that time arises, I will address it so that a coordinator transistion will go as smooth as possible.

    ...and print it for future reference.

    I think the Corporate Policies would be a likely candidate for such a pdf.
