    Per Dave Workman....

    I just got off the telephone with the Vancouver man's attorney. He appreciates all of your support,

    HOWEVER...

    He asks that you PLEASE
    do not travel to Vancouver for any kind of a demonstration, picnic, gathering at Albertson's (they're not the culprit here!!!) as it will not help his client's case, in the event this case goes anywhere.

    He's the attorney, and I think O.C. activists ought to honor his request on behalf of his client.

    Esther Short Park is downtown and very near city hall. It is a community gathering spot. Just a few blocks from city hall and The Columbian newspaper as well.

    And according to the rules only the 'discharge of firearms' is prohibited!

    And if I recall there is a Starbucks accross the street as well.

    I don't see any tables or shelters available at Ester ( my 1st choice as well).

    However: Leverich Park looks to have everything we need. - This great park, conveniently located near I-5 and State Route 500 offers a great picnic shelter for LARGE groups. The Burnt Bridge Creek flows through the length of the park as does the Discovery Trail. Large douglas fir trees line the park and there are numerous picnic tables throughout the park.

    I could've sworn I sat with my family at some tables there a couple of years ago. I just cannot recall for sure.

    Ester Park:
    Facilities
    Play equipment Paved walkways Benches Water Play fountain Bell Tower with Glockenspiel Community Plaza & Ampitheatre
    I've found nothing about picnic tables. Seems to be plenty of ground space though.

    It is a big open park, with lots of room right in the heart of downtown. I will have some friends who live in Vancouver do some recon for me tomorrow on picnic tables. (he is a CC Sheriff's deputy and thinks VPD are idiots)

    Is there any chance for VPD to show up to make arrests at this or other events? I OC sometimes, by myself. However, I am alreadybeing put through the ringer in acorrupt court system for a traffic infraction and I cannot afford anything to defend against another citation.

    Well, they've already shown a proclivity for arresting by citation for OC, so the answer is yes.

    Of course Shooter, there's always that chance, especially in Vancouver. You could go CCing as I will attempt to do. We can be the "non threatening" members of the group, of whom questions could be asked without risking life and limb.

    Speaking of asking questions, the press are great at that and proved a tremendous help at the Silverdale picnic. Thanks SemperCarry! Maybe we should offer first refusal to Vancouver Man's Wife, in contacting the press.

    Just a FYI, Leverich park is virtually invisible from the public, except for the actual park goers, it is a long driveway down into a little hollow, in between some freeways. Esther Short park is the heart of Vancouver, just a few blocks from the County Seat/Courthouse, highly visible and well attended.

    Hello all, finally got a chance to go online, sorry I hadn't been jumping in the threads sooner.

    A word on our parks....

    Esther Short has a few tables, no bbq pits and no covered area. It does have a central gazebo / stage that might be available for reservations. The Vancouver Farmer's Market is held on the West side every weekend (just opened), which would be nice for more visibility, but parking is awful.

    There are some good"neighborhood" parks within a couple of milesfrom the Albertson's shopping area, but our wise city leaders/planners design these "neighborhood" parks with very little parking as well. Many havelimited resources and are usually right next to or close toa school. I would think we would have to stay outside of the 1000 ft (unConstitutional) Fed School ban law unless we all had a CPL on us.

    Between schools and the Federal park/Reserve area in the east-center of town, we are really going to be limited in our choices.

    Unless someone else from this areahas offered (even then I can help out), I can work with Vancouver Man's Wife and locate a good park.

    We need to check for reservation and/or other events at Esther Short. It is about the most visible park that is not near a school.

    Gary

    Esther Short is a nice part. It is very busy during the weekend when the Farmers Market is running.

    I'm down for meeting.

    You know, I don't really think I can make it at 10 am.... can we leave the time open for discussion? :celebrate
    Considering the park in question, I thought we might want to get some folks down there early to reserve an area. However the actual start time is open....

    Yeah Navy Lt, you are right, but at the cost of possibly harming one of our group just to satisfy your appetite?

    Come on John, you are smarter than that.

    Comment from a Clark County Sheriff Deupty:

    "Make's me want to open carry, I could get my house paid off"



    I would say that if the attorney and Vancouvermanswife want us to wait then we should wait.

    NAVYLT,

    Let's be straight here, i didn't say we are canceling did I?

    I said "Put it on Hold". Hold i.e. delay i.e. reschedule...

    Per the attorney's request, and per Dave Workman's thread.

    I think that we should have the respect for another OC'r legal representative.

    OC is a hot topic button right now, let's not go hurting another's case so as to satisfy our own desires.

    Are you willing to harm this man's legal standing just to point out to Vancouver PD that "Yeah, we can legally do this... nana nana na na?"

    So i believe we should respect the attorney's wishes, and wait, we can have a great celebration when the results are in.
