    I don't think anything is actively planned. I've got a wedding coming up in the near future that will make it hard for me to participate, but otherwise I'm down most weekends.

    I was thinking sometime in the week after August 12 for another litter pickup.

    I missed the last one and would like to attend the next one. Let me know your ideas and approximate dates and we can get the ball rolling!

    If we do a trash pickup I probably wont be able to attend due to the nerve damage to my feet, Doc does not want me to be on my feet for more then 5 or 10 min at a time.

    I was thinking more of a BBQ someplace or meet at a restaurant for lunch.

    I can go either way. Trash or eat, or trash and eat! A shotgun or rifle makes for a good crutch in a pinch :-)

    Oh wait, if the date interferes with the "Jersey Shore" I might not be able to make it. My life is on hold until I find out what happens next with snookies, shnookiez or cookies, whatever her name is. Hahaha

    I personally like the trash pickups the best, and I know that some of you can't make Saturdays. I'm thinking August 21 would be a good day for the next trash pickup, and have started a new thread for that.

    If someone can find another place other than our usual place for trash pickups we could do an additional trash pickup on a day other than Saturday, but I think for a lot of people Saturday is still the best day.

    If someone wants to organize a picnic that might be fun. I don't really want to go to any fancy expensive dining places because I don't want to spend a lot of money.

    So, you get to be the guy sitting there explaining things to passersby, and keeping an eye on the ice chests and trash bags.

    The obummer economy is sucking big time, that's why I figure hanging out for an informal picnic, late afternoon at Arlington/ behind java house where there would be a lot of ppl that would see open carry is both legal and nothing to be alarmed about.

    I would enjoy a picnic

    & wouldn't enjoy picking up trash, why not simply have a low key picnic in a
    place like the River park where a lot of folks would see people relaxing while armed?

    I think a picnic would be good too. Nothing wrong with a nice relaxing environment created by some law abiding, open carrying citizens. I think a picnic also puts a different perspective in the minds of people who do not have the knowledge of what open carrying is, rather than a trash pick up. Although I like to volunteer and do good deeds, I personally want people to know that you can do normal daily activities while OPEN CARRYING and have a good time while doing it.

    my 2 cents.
