    That would probably work out as the only event so far scheduled for the end of April is the Vanderccok Park Picnic on the 25th, but it's in Jackson.

    I saw that on the events section, but the link to the thread didn't work... I was hoping to attend my first event.

    And as for summer... will be getting some new fishing line here and oiling up the reel here pretty soon. Can't wait to head out in the boat!

    I am VERY excited for it to be warm again! Open carry picnics, motorcycle riding, hot chicks on the beach....

    I'm hoping that it's not snowing at the end of April, and that all the snow is gone by then. 10.8" average snowfall in April, and 1 in 3 years sees snow in May, and we've actually had accumulating snow (2") as late as June 2nd.

    God...please let it be a nice, long, dry, hot summer!!!!

    FYI, Richfield park is part of the Genesee County Parks and they has this in their rules:

    http://www.geneseecountyparks.org/pdf/park_rules.pdf

    "Section XXV – Firearms
    For purposes of these rules, the term “firearm” shall include any revolver, pistol, shotgun, rifle, air rifle, air gun, water gun, slingshot, BB gun or any gun, rifle, firearm or bow or other device which is designed to discharge projectiles or are models or facsimiles of these devices, which appear to be capable of doing so.

    No person shall possess or control any firearm (except those as permitted by MCL 28.421 et seq) upon properties administered by or under the jurisdiction of the Commission, except by prior written permission of the Commission or as allowed by the Commission from time to time in designated areas.
    No person shall discharge any firearm upon property administered by or under the jurisdiction of the Commission except by prior written permission of the Commission or as allowed by the Commission from time to time in designated areas.

    This section shall not apply to any law enforcement officer acting in the course of his/her official duties."

    So the
    rules state no firearms EXCEPT CPL are allowed unless you get written permission.

    Covered by preemption. We need to address it to have it removed, but it would not prevent a gathering.

    To have it removed, someone needs to attend a Commission meeting. They are held at:

    Genesee County Administration Building
    Harris Auditorium
    1101 Beach Street, Flint, MI 48502

    The meetings start at 10am and below is a link for all their meeting for 2010

    http://www.geneseecountyparks.org/pd...20Schedule.pdf

    The next one is Thursday, March 25, 2010 & public is given 3 minutes per person to talk at every meeting.

    Edit: Spelling and time/date

    Well of course they are closed today, but reading http://www.geneseecountyparks.org/pavilion_rental.htmit seems you may not have to reserve but people can reserve pavilions.

    I will call again on Monday before work to confirm..

    Just got off the phone with county parks, the pavilions are first come first serve IF they are not yet reserved. You need to call the day before the actual date and ask if a pavilion in open..



    Forget about reserving one, unless you want to spend up words of 75 to 100+ dollars..

    The amount you indicate is typical for pavilion reservations. If I remember correctly, most, if not all, will be refunded if the pavilion/area is cleaned up afterwards.
