    Grand Rapids OC Lunch 12/3

    Family Restaurant, 2527 84th St Sw, Byron Center, MI 49315

    December 3, Saturday, High Noon.

    If enough members of South Kent Sportsmans' Club attend & agree to be RSOs, we can go send some lead downrange. (Weather permitting).

    Respond to thread if planning to attend.

    Many thanks! Should be a good time

    I have it on my calendar and plan to attend!
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Bummer, I have my kids that weekend and was planning a trip to Traverse City. If my plans change, I may be able to attend if my kids can come.

    Obviously not... lol. I only use the word "children" in situations where those around me are acting like... oh, just "kid"ding.
    No, my progeny are fine around guns and people wearing guns...they don't really know anything other than me wearing a firearm; they are just at the ages that it might be judged "boring". Then again, everything I do with them has a high probability of being judged boring...I usually respond that I remember many boring things I was brought to as a child... and some were actually fun
    Therefore, I'll probably be there...at least for little while if I don't go to TC.

    I would like to make it, and I see kids are welcome, however my daughter is only 2 so I'm not sure how well that would work. I will see what I can do.

    Negative- no alcohol. I do not see them listed on the LCC list, either.

    Many thanks!

    Many thanks to the 22 folks that were able to attend the OC luncheon at Byron Family Restaurant.

    A good time was had by all. The manager of the restaurant also conveyed his thanks, and said we're welcome back any time.
