    I just got out of the military and moved back to the La Crosse area, Holmen to be exact. I read that last year there was an Open Carry Picnic in Onalaska, WI. I was wondering if anyone knows if this will be going on again this Year? I would love to show my support and carry myself. If anyone has any info I'd appreciate it. Thanks guys

    There will be an OC event in Sussex on Sunday and a few people from your area will be down here for that. Contact bnhcomputing and I'm sure he'll be happy to give you a ride.

    Welcome

    Like was already stated, any OC picnic or any other big event will be posted on the forums, probably in a new thread.

    For any La Crosse area specific events such as a dinner or get together, those will be under the La Crosse County thread: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum57/25383-11.html

    I am going to a motorcycle rally in La Crosse this July. Although I dont think I will be able to do much OC, (the will most likely be a LOT of beverages involved)

    Greenfield WI just past an ordinance that OC in a CITY park will be allowed. Maybe this summer we can see about a nice public event?

    LMK when you hit town BD and we could do a ride together. I have a late 80's FXR lowrider with a high performance engine and straight pipes... loud and fast.

    USA welcome to the forum. Keep an eye open here for upcoming events as I know that we will be having at least one blowout this year in Lax and maybe more.

    I'd be up for that.

    Guys:

    Here's an idea. March 15 is my B-Day. How about we all get together on the 12,13,or 14 to celebrate. You La Crosse area guys bounce the idea around through the PM's and surprise me.

    I ask two things:

    1. Let me know as soon as you finalize a time and place.
    2. Please try to pick RTKBA friendly venue.

    You bounce it around and let me know....

    Spart, the rally is July 15-18. Couple of hundred bike(rs) expected. All are welcome. I know the event organizer. Here's a link to the web page. http://www.midwestmotorcyclerally.com/

    Thanks for the link BD. I don't usually drink when I ride (seen too much horror), so I'm looking forward to OCing at some of the events to raise awareness.



    Hubert, I'll be happy to be point man for your birthday party and I think its a great idea. I know more than a few restaurant owners in the south La Crosse area so give me a few days to approach them and I'll post up an invite.

    As you know La Crosse restaurants, as in other locales are terribly busy Fri and Sat, so I'm thinking a lunch on Sunday, March 14th will be the way to go.

    Sound OK to you?

    Least if it's terribly busy then there's lots of people to see us carry!

    + 1x50 there. Most of the riding is done during the day, (a few night rides) so the evenings are free for the consumption part of the event. This is not a big rally, only a few hundred bikes, but it is growing each year.

    I would agree on the lunch factor also, a dinner would be a lot harder to organize.
