    Congratulations Dale !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    and Brandy and Mark

    After Mack Elliott died in November, the Board just couldn't bring itself to pick a replacement right away. A certain amount of healing has to occur, I guess.

    The Board finally decided we had to move forward and fill Mack's position.

    Board members are elected from the pool of Executive Members, of which VCDL now has over 50. There is an incredible amount of smart, talented, and dedicated leaders within our Executive Membership, making the Board's deliberation anguishing as we chose someone to fill Mack's position and his very large shoes.

    After considerable deliberation over each of the Executive Members, the Board is pleased to announce its newest member is Dale Welch!

    Those of you who know Dale, know how tireless he is. Dale also has a clear and unflinching view of our liberties, is well versed on gun laws and events, offers sage advice, and will be a good steward of the rights of Virginia's gun owners.

    Dale will serve out Mack's term, which ends in June. At that time the entire body of Executive Members will decide on reelecting Dale to fill that position for the next two years.

    Welcome aboard, Dale!

    --

    VCDL also selected two new Executive members today and I would like to be the first to welcome them:

    Brandy Polanowski and Mark Matthews

    Brandy has been very active in the Richmond area with coordinating VCDL membership meetings and assisting with other VCDL events.

    Mark is a criminal attorney who is a strong believer in our Second Amendment rights and has been ready and willing to help VCDL navigate through various legal matters as a member of VCDL's Legal Advisory Committee. Whenever VCDL determines that a lawsuit is necessary for some reason, Mark will be one of our "go to" guys.

    I don't think the board could have made a better choice.

    I just got an e-mail from Dale.

    To celebrate his elevation, he is hosting a huge picnic at a pavilion nearhis place on Memorial Day! Catered barbeque andtwo live bands.

    What a guy!!

    PS: Not really. This is payback for similar highjinx he's pulled on me.



    Congratulations, Dale.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    It would take asmidge of research to figure out. He is idenified in some of the pictures elsewhere. There are those on the forum who might not have made the connection to Dale and his posted efforts.

    Appreciate the many kind remarks, in fact it is somewhat overwhelming.

    VCDL is a team effort and I am proud to be part of that team - it is a cause in which I believe in very fervently.

    Congratulations, Dale.

    Sorry I missed you guys, yesterday. Work is picking up, and that's a good thing.

    Dale and skidmark were instrumental in getting me to open carry.
