    Thumbs up MOOC is online

    Ladies and gentlemen, I'm proud to announce the unofficial launch (unofficial because its not entirely finished) of MissouriOpenCarry.org.

    http://www.missouriopencarry.org

    If you missed the thread discussing it here is the link- http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...ation-web-site.

    As I said, the website is still under construction and shall be under development for some time. However, the framework is up, so feel free to take a look at it and tell me what you think.

    Say, were you able to retrieve any of the work that some of us started a few months back on this very same type of project?

    I believe you touched base with BROONDOG about it. There was a lot of good work that was put in that we may be able to apply to this project.

    Good job!

    That has been brought up a couple times and I'm defiantly open to incorporating any of the work you guys had compiled. However, no one from the last effort has followed up on the suggestion. Like I said, I'd be more than happy to go over any of it and see what I could include. In fact, I -want- -anyone- who has an idea, suggestion, or material to message me or post it on the forum and I will apply and include what I can to the best of my ability. I very very much want this to be a community effort.

    Great Job Chiang........Buisness cards are in work. It will be good to identify with something in Missouri not that OCDO is bad. It will just give us in Missouri our own identity

    Ok...that sounds great.

    So....hahhaha....ok, so we need to be thinking about an event where we can present ourselves to the public! I've got an idea....how about having a booth at Santa-Cali-Gon in Independence...to hand out brochures etc...and put a "Community face" on MOOC???

    Actually, that is a very intriguing idea. I would love to do something like this. How do we go about obtaining a booth?

    Santa-Cali-Gon Days in Independence

    C) Nonprofit Display – For display by nonprofit organizations $245

    I just took a quick look at the application for a Nonprofit Display booth and the above is pretty much what we're looking at...plus a possible additional $90.00 for Liabiliity insurance. I will double check on that.

    So I am thinking that the only thing we would need to come up with would be A) money for the booth fee B) manpower to run it C) construction of the booth D) money for printing our materials. Thats it.

    Edit: I just sent an email to the Indep. Chamber of Commerce for confirmation of booth/insurance fees, application process etc.

    Edit take two: I just saw this as well...which we might consider..letting our pocketbooks be our guide of course. But it seems to me this option would work well for us in getting our organization "out there".

    Pardner Sponsorship Benefits:
     Official 2010 Festival T‐shirt
     2 VIP Main Stage Tickets (one evening only)
     Recognition inside the Pardners Rest Tent
     Company Name Recognition on santacaligon.com
     Company Name Recognition in Chamber News & media advertisements
     Company Name Recognition in Kansas City Star Festival Supplement
    Investment: $200
    Deadline to become an Official Pardner is August 10.
    Please complete the form below and email, mail or fax it to the Chamber.
    Email: jhobbs@independencechamber.org
    Mail: 210 W. Truman, P.O. Box 1077, Independence, MO 64051

    This was for 2010, but I'm thinking it will be ditto for 2011

    Do they allow Open Carry at the festival?

    Not necessarily where I would want to spend my money if we can't even carry there.

    To be honest, I couldn't tell you. BUT, we wouldn't be there necessarily to spend our money, we would be there to get our message out to the 225k people that would pass by throughout the weekend.

    In my opinion, it would be an excellent opportunity even if we couldn't OC there. We gotta start somewhere for change.

    I agree that this type of set up would be a good place to promote. But I think it might be kind of a moot point to be saying:

    "look at these rights that you can exercise! ...just not in certain places...like, right...here."

    We've all mentioned the no guns/ no money business cards before, and not giving money to the businesses that ban carry. Why would we want to do the same thing here by renting a booth and giving them the money to be part of that festival if we can't assert the rights we are attempting to promote?

    I did just find this in their 2010 rules: "Restrictions: For the convenience of all festival goers, pets are not allowed in the festival grounds. No Firearms."

    However, currently the only restriction posted on their website is no animals.

    I emailed for clarification, I will post the response here.

    "I agree that this type of set up would be a good place to promote."

    In my opinion if we were all in agreement on doing this type of event...this would be our main focus and motivation for being there. It would be like...what if Odessa had their fair the same weekend and allowed OC and they expected 15k throughout the weekend. Would we choose to be there and OC and promote our cause to 15k, or at Santa Cali Gon...not OC but get our message out to 225k plus the other types of media?
