I sure had a good time visiting with some good people. Other than a few minutes of rain it was a great day. Hope to see you at the next one.

It was a great picnic. Best one yet. The organization was superb and the speakers were spot on! Great work and I'm looking forward to another event.

Carry On!

Here is a link to one of the local tv channels article

Not a bad piece, but I don't think she still got the point of our event.

Thanks to those that helped us set this up. It sure was a lot of work. Dan - the master chef. I don't remember his assistants name, but thanks too. Al, Scott, Mason, Ryan, Ole, Annette, Missy, and Hubert. If I missed someone, I truly apologize. All the help was very, very appreciated!

See you at the next event in Glenwood City on August 22nd!

Carry ON!!

I have some and Al was taking some as well. I just got back from cleaning up and am too tired to post them right now. I will put some up tomorrow for all to see.

Brokensproket did a great job organizing and putting this together.

Thanks everyone for coming out, it was great to be able toput some more "characters" totheforumnames...

Don't mind my asking but where does the 99.5% statistic come from. I would find it hard to believe that your chances of not being a victim are 99.5% in Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Madison or any other of the larger cities in the state.

Good question, I didn't make that comment. Ask Brokensprocket.
99.5%

we must be careful making comments such as these.

So there is only a .5% chance that you will ever need a firearm in this state?

Kind of gives the anti's some fuel don't you think? Makes it look like we are just a bunch or paranoid lunatics or something. Don't throw statistics out there at the drop of a hat it doesn't do us any favors.

i understand mr. gleason, but i do mention: if were the .5% for using a firearm, i bet the need to use a fire extinguisher is probably .5% too.

added on edit: Post them pics of the picnic guys!

We stopped in the GM in Eau Claire on the way home and OC'd there. Nice store, nobody seemed to care. Funny thing is my wife got motivated by this picnic, when we pulled into GM, she was like "you're going to carry right?"
