    Hey guys, so in mid-July the ban on Open Carry in Acadia National Park will go into effect. But, on the ******11th of July which is a SUNDAY****** we are going to have a farewell to OC in Acadia, Thompson Island to be exact. with a promise that we will get it back! What I need from you guys is support and food!! One thing that you can do is plan your weekend around Acadia! It's picturesque and a great place for the whole family! Tell everyone you know! I would love another great turnout like we had for the barbecue! I am getting the word out a month in advance so that everyone should hear about it! We can even do a camp-out if people want to?! So please get back to me with a solid number! If you have any questions please contact me directly: shanebelanger@gmail.com

    If we change the date to the 17th we can have the head of NRA in Maine speak at the event. Cabela's uses him a lot. I need to find out exactly when the ban goes into effect.

    Try to get a legislator there who voted against the final bill and can speak about how the legislature overreacted to a non-issue.

    Ok guys, the date is the 11th, it's a sunday. Remember this is July 11th. I have the permit and I should have the *legislator* speaker lined up by tomorrow night! So, lets start spreading the word by mouth and I'll let out a press release once I have the speaker fully on board with us! Like always any questions/comments email them so me at shanebelanger@gmail.com or hit me up on here! Thanks guys!

    Where did the park put you/us?


    Maybe we should gather in Bar Harbor instead. The village green or Agamont Park would be nice.

    Well, I forgot the name of the place and the lady that I need to contact has today off so I won't know for sure until tomorrow. It has grills though? That's all I know for sure right now, BUT** the park ranger is a HUGE 2ndA supporter and thinks that the right to open carry being banned is just plain wrong. And remember it's the 11th of July at 1pm

    Thompson Island is across the street from the information center at the head of the island (MDI). It is a nice place for a get together. Anyone who wants to stroll downtown Bar Harbor or check the views from Cadillac while OC? let me know.

    Yes sir! July 11th at 1pm! It's on Thompson Island in Acadia National Park! I sent out the press release today at noon. The media frenzy should pick up tomorrow or so.
