    Red face Lynchburg OC dinner :) Ledos Pizza, May 17 at 7:00 pm

    Ok it is that time again for us Lynchburgers to get together for a meal. The place that I have chosen for our May OC dinner is Ledo's Pizza just off of Wards Rd. The date for our gathering is May 17, 2011 at 7:00 pm. Here is the address for folks who might not know where Ledo's is:
    120 G Simons Run
    Lynchburg, VA 24502
    (434) 237-9495

    I hope to see lots of folks there for dinner!

    Watch out Melvins!! Anytime Grape inserts himself into one of these dinner threads, there's an even chance he'll trick somebody into volunteering to pay the whole tab. Including, his of course.

    Worst of it is, because of the way he dresses, nobody can really enjoy their meal.

    Back to your regularly scheduled OC dinner topic.

    When I carry a gun, I don't do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I'm looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don't carry it because I'm afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn't limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force.

    So does this mean you'll be at Ledo's?

    We won't be there, but I was interested in reading this, for some reason...

    Sure enough, I got 2.5 chuckles out of it.

    1. Ledo's, a chain started in MD, is OC-friendly.
    2. Ledo's being the location, and I got a Papa John's ad on the lead post.
    2.5 Husband/wife inter... play... The wife and I love messing with folks that way.

    OK... the .5 was just my own foolishness, but the first 2 really tickled me.

    We hope you can make it out Snazalou. Ledo's isn't all that big, but I'm sure there might be some people hanging out outside before we head in. If I'm there (and I plan to be) look for a medium height, heavy set white guy with a big bald head (and equally big belly) and you'll probably land in the right spot.

    If Jero and his wife and pals are there look for several bearded guys making a jovial ruckus along with the big bellied bald dude.

    And the ppl/guns should provide the final confirming clue.

    Ledo's is one of the first places I saw other OCers when I moved to Lynchburg. I recall sitting for an early dinner with a co-worker while OCing one weekend and noticing 3 other guys all come in OCing as well. It took me a minute to get used to seeing all the other armed patrons.

    Some of the family that runs the local Ledo's have Maryland tags on their car so I initially wondered if they'd have any issue with my sidearm, but I've never had the least bit of reaction from any of them and they continue to keep a clean, polite place to enjoy lunch or dinner.

    The Husband and I will definitely be there. I love me some Ledos pizza! :0) (This means you'll see a pink gripped firearm hanging out with the bearded guy).

    Thank you to most of the regular crew that showed up. We ended up with 6 of us and we were very well taken care of by our young lady server. Nuc let the manager know that she had done an outstanding job and he was happy to hear we were happy with our experience.

    Afterward we gathered out in the parking lot while Nuc and William's dogs played together and chatted for a while. All in all a nice time was had.

    How was the dinner?

    I've never been to one of these. How many people were there? When is the next dinner?

    Thanks

    We had 6 at this one, but the attendance varies from about 6 - 10 attendees usually. We've had as many as 15 or so for our first one a year and a half ago.

    I don't know when the next one will be, but we schedule them every couple months or so, sometimes we wait less, sometimes longer. We can probably support another one here soon I'd guess. Watch the "sticky" section for the Lynchburg dinners as there's usually a couple weeks notice before they occur.

    We'd love to have you if you could make it up for one!
