    Its been mentioned by a few of us and now rochester hills has fixed the illegal Ordinance so we should have a picnic
    Im thinking late May/ early June

    Possible Dates
    Sat. May 29th
    Sun. May 30th
    Sat. June 5th
    Sun. June 6th

    Possible locations
    I was thinking bloomer park but you need a Vehicle permit( $5 for a single days permit) to get in.
    Ill keep looking for locations and would appreciate any input I can get.
    I would also like to try and get the public involved maybe give out hotdogs anr whatnot
    Lets get some IDEAS GOIN

    Rules for picnic
    Pets WELCOME bringem out but clean up after your pet DO NOT MAKE IT SOMEONE ELSES WORK.


    MOST IMPORTANTLY
    Clean up after yourselfs, the last picnic I went to almost everyone did saw some cig butts being thrown on the ground put them in an ashtray, paper plates and empty cups and bottles go in the garbage so they dont blow all over.
    Lets make this a good picnic

    Just a word of caution: Ordinance is not yet fixed. Tonight there wil be a First Reading of the revised Ordinanceat the City Council. In a week or two, there will be a Sesond Reading atwhich time the final version should be voted on. Hopefully, nothingbad happens between now and then.

    Doesn't matter, ordinance doesn't have to be changed in order to enjoy the preemption that already applies.

    Nice point on the cig butts Beerme. I concur FWIW.

    Yep leave it better than you found it is what I say!
    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."

    i suggest spencer, but borden would be better since no permit is required and they hold the festival of the hills there.

    ive been to borden a few times it is more of a sports park, big time. Avondale would be good but i think that might be a sports park too. As i said in my previous post Spencer would be an option. I grew up like less than a mile from there. If yer on a bike, its no charge, but a vehicle permit is required for car.

    Memorial weekend could be a conflict for a lot of folks. I can't speak for others, but it's a no-go for me.

    How would those of us who bring large things; grills, tables, containers of food etc.
    Ride a bike there???
    Im not going to consider setting something up that will cost our members money, other than their wonderful contributions of food

    and I did forget about memorial day for a minute coondog.
    so it'll probably be the 5th or 6th not sure yet, sunday seems like the best option to me though.
    And coon, you're bringing some of that chili right

    So where should we post at? Here or moc? I might be able to make it. Sunday june 6 is busy for me. How many people on your teamspeak want it on this day? June 12 is a better day. But i would like to try this. Do I need to be a member of OCDO? How do I join?

    You can post here on OCDO, see the Rochester Hills Picnic At Avondale Park thread.

    If you are registered on MOC, Inc, you can post there as well. See the South East Region sub-forum for the event thread.

    If you would like to join MOC, Inc, look here:

    This is athread for planning the Rochester hills Picnic. I think.

    The thing you type is a post. I wanted to know where to make a post. Because I want to register to come there. I also wanted to know how to sigh up to become a member of ocdo. not MOC. There seems to be too much confusion with that group. And they get mad too easy at someone having picnics. Ocdo seems to be more organized I think and nice guys. And i want to learn more to open carry like them.

    Frank, this is OCDO (not MOC) you are posting on right now--you are already a member here.

    Look at my previous post above, I gave you the name of the thread to post your reply(ies) to.
