NoVA Blogmeet?

Trying to co-ordinate something. Need some replies. I am thinking either 11/21 or 12/5 at Sweetwater Tavern in Centreville.

Does this date work?

Is there a better one?

Suggestions and comments welcome...

Turk? CJR? T-Bolt? Nicki? NFO?

Let me know...

Pax,

Newbius

Either one works for me.

Can I come?
Nov. 12 is no good; I'll be out hunting.

Wai said...

Oh...11/21...It's a 5 hour drive for me and I'll probably need to stay overnight before heading back up. What should I bring with me?

Sam said...

Can groupies attend?

Newbius said...

Possible hiccup- Sweetwater Tavern is part of the Great American Restaurants" chain and this chain has a "no guns" policy. While it is legal in VA to openly carry a handgun in a restaurant that serves alcohol, if the facility asks you to remove it or depart then you must do so. I am thinking that there might be a more "gun-friendly" establishment in the Chantilly area that would welcome us if we are carrying. Or, we can go to Sweetwater...

Comments?

Update- I sent an email to the CEO asking if the "no guns" policy is still in effect. Waiting on a reply. If it is, I think we should take our business elsewhere, and I will tell the CEO that our business is lost to his chain until his policy changes. This is the chain's website and it lists their restaurants, none of which will get any more business from me if they are still anti-gun: http://www.greatamericanrestaurants.com/

I'm in!

I have a strange work schedule: I work on weekends. Well, like they say,"It's a living."

But I'm free nearly every evening, seven days a week.

(Yeah, I know: "Mr. Popularity", right?)

Followed a link from Tam.

Champps in Reston is extremely gun friendly.

Breda said...

Hmm. 6 hours for me.

Turk Turon said...

Breda, it would be great to see you and Mike again. I met you guys at the Broadripple Brewpub in 2008, as I recall.

I'd be interested. I'm local to Chantilly.

12/5 is better for me, I'm off at gun skool this weekend.

I second the question about groupies, though I never really considered myself as such, before....

And I DEFINITELY recommend a gun-friendly place. It is not that there is a shortage of these, here. I OC, here, though not in the wet or cold.

Drat - someone finally gets a gunblog meet in locally and I'm out in the kitty-litter-box-istan. Hopefully it will be sucessful enough there will be a redo in early Feb while I'm back in Reston on R&R.

I have OC'd at the Sweetwater in Chantilly, but it was just me, not a large group.
