    OC picnic Hazel Park 8/14/10

    You are all invited to attend an OC picnic at Scout Park in the city of Hazel Park from 12-3

    An acquaintance of mine was told that it would not be "wise" to OC here. So, I told him I'd put together a little outing so he can get more comfortable with it.

    Hope to see you all there!

    Aside from experiencing that their traffic court system can be sleazy and dishonest, I have never had a problem in Hazel Park, nor have I known anyone else here to have. So I don't know that there is a point to be proved, but a picnic there does sound nice.

    More warm weather picnics are always good, because our little 3 month burst of humidity and mosquitoes (the only nice weather all year) is almost over.

    I'll try to be there if I can make it.

    If someone wants to hall their grill (or we can use one their) I will bring the charcoal and lighter fluid.

    FYI: I don't know your friends story, but I can not even tell you how many times I have OCed in this city. Lets see how many times have I walked outside of my house? I have OCed in this city literaly a thousand times no joke NO problems. I have OCed in the Police station several times for many different times (picking up dropping off PP, dropping off RI-60s, requesting and picking up FOIA, and even to ask help from their armorer with my 870), never once an issue. I have had them out to the neighborhood for one reason or the other never once an issue.

    I have only ever had one issue concerning this department and it has nothing to do with firearms, and it is currently playing out, and I am hoping they fix everything before it reaches court, which I have no reason to believe they wont.

    These guys and gals here in blue know what they are doing and I respect them and glad I live in such a city where the citizens can feel safe and not harassed.

    But yeah I'll bring the charcoal and lighter fluid, finally a picnic I can walk to!

    I agree with you and Michigander, I know that there will be no issues whatsoever. This is just a good opportunity to reinforce that message and an excuse to have another BBQ before summers end! lol

    It will be a great time, no question.

    I grew up in Hazel Park, my parents still live there, and most of my family and friends still live there as well, so I will definately be there!

    For some reason I think i may have something going on that day... gotta check with the secretary (aka wifey) to see for sure though. If I'm free, which I'm hoping I will be, I'll bring bottled water, name tags and sharpies as always.


    Edit to add:

    Talked to wife, looks like I can go. Apparently we're having our own BBQ at 5, so it gives me just enough time to show up, have some fun, and then do my own thing. Put me down for name tags, sharpies, and eh.. pop I guess, since you've already got water covered. Coke or Pepsi fine for everyone? Which do you all prefer?

    This is coming up soon, and we only have a handful of people coming and/or bringing things. Not good.

    Part of it is many of us will be at Bass Pro that day for the fall hunting classic. If not I would be attending as well. Hopefully we can rally the troops and have a great showing at both.

    Don't forget there doesn't need to be 50 people at every picnic for it to be a success. Even if there are just a few and the message gets out that is a success in my book. Large groups are nice but several small groups work ver well also.

    Either way we will have a great time!

    Want more people to show up? Call Fox2 and tell them that some of the attendees from Mondays Royal Oak city Council meeting will be having a picnic in Hazel Park this weekend, because Hazel Park supports their rights. Bet it makes the news...

    Did anyone check and see if we need to "lease" a pavilion?

    I did follow up interviews with most of the media outlets today. I gave them dates and locations of all upcoming OC events. Hopefully they will start making the rounds and publicizing them.

    I was actually joking. I don't mind them saying hey here is a list of OC picnics, but I don't know if I want them showing up at our 4 or 5 guy/gal picnics, it would be like someone with a camera fallowing me around my everyday activities. Actually it would be EXACTLY like that, excuse me Mr. microphone man please pass the mustard, awww man the camera man sat on my chips! Those guys always get in the way, at least when its a big turn out, the MOC officials keep them busy enough to not get in my way.

    I will bring paper towels, paper plates, ice, and some sort of salad. Do we have an estimate of how many people might show up?

    I can bring my new-fangled camera that takes HD video.

    Is anyone else going to the picnic, and then up 75 to bass pro? Don't know if I'm comfortable OC'ing at GLC yet.

    I wasn't planning on it, but I may, depending on how I feel. OCing at GLX is the least of your problems, they are NOT anti OC their.
