    Two OC seminar in Grand Rapids area 1/22/11 at two Gander Mt. stores.

    Two Free Open Carry Seminars. Seminars are a great starting place to learn about OC in Michigan. The seminar is conducted by John Roshek, President of the Citizens League for Self Defense http://www.citizensleaguesd.com/

    This is a great chance to OC with others and to ask questions about OC. John has done several other seminars at various Gander Mountain stores throughout the state.



    Gander Mountain - Grandville, MI 1/22/11 11-1pm
    Gander Mountain - Grand Rapids, MI 1/22/11 3-5pm

    I'll try to go to one or the other. I just emailed a friend to see if he would like to also go.

    Hi John,
    I look forward to meeting you too. I called up Gander for the morning session and made a reservation.

    I'm at the hospital (OC of course) visiting my girlfriend's dad so I couldn't make the second class, but I went to the OC seminar in Grandville... the weather outside was nasty (Snow) but still had a pretty good turnout. John (& his wife) did an EXCELLENT job conducting the seminar; the "students" asked some very well-informed questions. A few OCDOers were there... great to put names with faces. Hopefully, we can get a few more GR area resident OCers. A few of us talked about getting a summer picnic planned... and those of you who have pm'd me, thanks...I'll let you know when and where.
    Once again John, great job and, as always, CARRY ON!

    Great job

    I too went to the first seminar in Grandville today. Like Todd said, I thought the seminar was very well done and informative. I appreciate the work you are doing John. Your wife too. I appreciate you getting the word out about open carry and all that this movement is doing to help keep the authorities in check with the actual laws (instead of opinions).

    It was nice to meet the other OCDO folks and look forward to a picnic in the future in SW MI.

    I was at the Grandville one was well. It was a pretty good turnout. I think I counted about 15 excluding John and his wife. Good job John!

    Thank you guys for the positive feed back, I am honored to have been able to do the seminars for you guys. I appreciate all the support that everyone gave us today! Thanks Dr. Todd! The Gander Mtn. folks were top notch as usual and the residents of the GR area were extremely supportive.

    Both seminars went great, we took some pics and we will put those on the site tomorrow or Monday. I can't wait to come back.
