    Lightbulb Open Carry @ Silver Bells -- Nov. 19

    All,

    Silver Bells, a parade/one night festival in Lansing will be held on Nov. 19 this year. During the festival the State Christmas tree will be lit in front of the State Capitol Building. Please consider joining MOC to ring in the season of peace by a peaceful public display of our firearms at our State's Capitol.

    Details as to time and initial meeting place will be made available as the time gets closer. For more information: Silver Bells
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Would love to have you. As we get closer, more details will unfold. I'm going to be discussing ideas at regular MOC Teamspeak meetings.

    It's an evening affair. It's when the State's Christmas tree first gets lit for the year.

    TBD. Once we get weekly MOC leadership TS hours I'll get on there and start planning with leadership.

    Meet Up Location and Time

    As lil_freak said before. We'll meet on November 19, 2010 between 5:45 and 5:50 PM between the big Christmas tree in front of the Capitol and the Statute that is immediately behind it (from the perspective of Michigan Avenue facing the Capitol).

    For those of you who may not know where the State Capitol is, it is on the corner of Michigan Avenue and Capitol Avenue in Lansing.

    This is the schedule of events for Silver Bells. As you may see, I have us meeting up prior to the "Electric Lights Parade".

    If all goes as planned my beautiful wife and I will be there tonight. I guess I'll carry in a drop leg since the weather will force us to wear coats.
