There is a small playground for our younger family members close by the shelter--and restrooms are very close. We would appreciate RSVP--numbers of your group attending so we can plan on the proper quanity of items to have.
This event is open to all VCDL members, families and guests. There is NO cooking grill at the shelter site.

FYI -- In Virginia, it is legal to carry at a city park -- Open or (with a recognized permit) Concealed.
VCDL does not take a position on Open vs. Concealed carry -- or even care if you attend our events w/o carrying. It's your call.
However, safety mishaps, particularly with firearms, expose the organization to liability issues and could significantly damage VCDL's credibility as a gun rights organization. At all events, the rules and requirements of the sponsor/promoter shall be strictly observed.
Therefore, whenever the owner/sponsor/promoter permits loaded firearms, and at all VCDL-sponsored meetings, events, or gatherings, loaded firearms shall NOT be handled at any non-range sites -- they will remain holstered or otherwise secured at all times.
Also, mark your calenders for:
12 MAY 2012
