    Lightbulb OC MEETUP: Freemont Street Experience 13-14 August

    All,


    I know that after our last meet-up (which was a great Success Btw) we have had more people showing interest in doing OC walks.

    OC walks have shown to be positive social experience for all involved, and have had a great effect on educating the public. As many of you know, we even scored some airtime with our last event. Anyone who has attended one of these events can certainly attest to these facts.

    So here it is, OC at the Fremont Street experience. TFSE is a lot of fun, as there is live music, live entertainment, and it truly at the heart of the Vegas entertainment culture. It is family friendly(Well as far as Vegas goes ), and fairly localized. For those that have issues walking long distances as we do in our Strip meetups, this should not be a problem.

    We have two available dates, Friday 13 August; or Saturday 14 August. A poll has been made available so that all interested parties may vote. The Date is Set to Saturday. For the sake of this event, please post if you plan to attend as it would be great if we had a rough idea of how many people may attend. With the recent surge or interest, I hope this can become our biggest meet-up yet.

    The time will be at 8:00 PM, Saturday 14 August.
    The meeting spot with be near the stage Close to Main St. Image is Attached.

    Feel free to PM for Phone Number.

    I usually park at the California, good valet dudes and it is not a requirement to walk through a casino to get to your car.

    When Les & I go to Fremont St. and are meeting someone, we usually park at the Plaza, the parking is just on the other side of the bus station. That puts us at the start of Fremont and easy to meet people right there at the end.

    I should be able to make this one, but I need to know the definitive date beforehand. Personally, I'd prefer Saturday at 9pm if at all possible.

    At this point I am going to set the date to Satuday.

    As far as changing the time, I will look to see what we all want to do. Our last meetup went until 10 -11 PM if I recall, so any late-comers would not be excluded at all. I know we usually just BS for 30-35 minutes at the meeting place before we walk anywhere.

    Also I don't know where we want to meet up, I'm thinking near the stage on the main street side.

    Lightbulb Danger Will Robinson!

    I am interested in attending, but I have a concern that I haven't seen raised yet:

    I believe the FSE is considered a City Park. I seem to recall that coming up when the Mayor etc was trying to give the 'Girls to your room' peddlers the boot. As I recall, it was originally designated a park as part of funding it, and it came back to bite the city in regards getting rid of the vagrants and such.

    Wikipedia says " the FSE is considered a city park. [citation needed]".
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fremont_Street_Experience

    A quick search of the RJ found several comments to the same effect. So, with that said....

    Last I had heard, the City was still maintaining their assertion that City Parks are off limits, despite SB92's passage. Has this changed? I have been out of the loop for awhile, did we ever hear a response from the AG's office? I know this was a topic for discussion a while back when we were considering a get-together at Sunset Park.

    Just want to make sure this has been considered before I show up and get arrested (or worse). Otherwise, I am all for it. Jus' lemme get my gat!

    I believe there was a previous meet up with no incident?

    Interesting thing to bring up though.

    You know, I remember something like this comming up before. I find the thread I'll link it. I'm pretty sure that it was shown that it was not a problem. I know many of us have OC'ed there many times so I am 99% percent sure this will not be a problem.

    It is definitely NOT a City Park. We've met there several times with no issues. In fact, the Las Vegas Metro Police Department training on Open Carry specifically cites an Open Carry get together on Fremont Street as one of the examples of when police should NOT approach someone open carrying.

    Best (and worst) part about Wiki is that you can edit out incorrect information, which I've done. Now if you check the link, it doesn't say anything about a park. Problem solved :-)

    I wonder if this will be one of the biggest OC meets yet? Does anyone know what the record is?

    I just spent a couple of hours having a "beer summit" with Stuart Rhodes, the founder of the Oath Keepers. at first I thought he would support open carry but not want involvement, Boy was I wrong.
    He invited me to speak about Open Carry at their next meeting, and asked if he and some of the oath Keepers could join in on the Freemont get together, Theyalso want to bring their video crew. I told him I didn't see any problems with it. So I guees they are coming out. You can check em out at:

    Ah, I like Oath Keepers. I went to a couple of their meetings once, good group. Was a bit skeptical at first, though there is nothing in the offical stance that I dissagree with.
