    Ed, you need to keep the URL updated in the initial post since you change the Facebook title of your breakfast every week to reflect the new date. The one you now have posted goes into a black hole since the event is over and deleted. Plus, a Facebook query won't pull up the following week's event until it gets enough hits for the search spider to find it....e.g., a search this morning on "Our weekly VA open carry" comes up with "No results found for your query."

    I'm sure an IT guy like you can figure out how to one-click-lead OCDO readers to the breakfast information without having to edit the thread every week.

    Or take the easy way out and just delete the Facebook link all together and put a location map pointer in the post. But then you won't get RSVPs from OCDO members who aren't regular attendees. And you'll piss off people when they don't get the word on a location and/or date change like we had during the December holiday season.

    But I'll help you out for this coming Sunday since I'll be there as always:

    It is a weekly breakfast no matter the links and posts.. the RSVP's are easier to track on Facebook.

    Thanks,

    Man, I have got to make it to one of these. Great crowd there Ed.
    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Nice crowd, Ed! You must be spreading the OC message in Loudoun County a big way.

    With a core following like that, your Friends of NRA banquet should to be on track be a huge success.

    Guess the diner is a pretty safe place for Sunday morning breakfast, huh?

    BTW, how about correcting that typo on the website 'Save the Date' page.

    I went to http://virginiagunraffle.com and didn't a way to buy a ticket (I clicked around). Ideas?
    Does anyone here actually believe that the Founders were sitting around in John Adams' tavern UNARMED because they believed a bar should be a gun free zone?

    I don't understand your question. Are you asking HOW TO BUY A RAFFLE TICKET? Go to the page http://virginiagunraffle.com, scroll to the bottom, add the tickets you want to your "cart" and then "check-out". <shrug>

    I had similar trouble seeing the section showing the actual ticket purchase using Firefox as a browser. When I switched over to Explorer, I was able to see it fine.

    VCDL President Philip Van Cleave will be the guest number picker at this Sunday's raffle drawing.
    -
    Gun rights, gun safety and gun training are so important to Philip Van Cleave, President of the VCDL (Virginia Citizens Defense League), that he is willing to travel to Our Weekly Open Carry Breakfast - Ashburn Coney Island Diner 8/26 at 9AM in Northern Virginia to draw the winning ticket for one of the guns being raffled to support the Loudoun County Friends of NRA. Virginia gun owners of all ages and walks of life are commonly members of both the NRA and the VCDL. Which gun will be drawn? It is up to YOU guys.. the closest one to selling out!
