ISLE OF WIGHT - Thursday

On Thursday, July 21, the Isle of Wight Board of Supervisors (BoS) will consider approving a new public shooting range. There is resistance to the range, **so we will need a good turnout** at the BoS meeting to show support, especially if you live in the area.


Robert C. Claud Sr Board Room (2nd Floor) Isle of Wight County Courthouse Complex (in Old Courthouse - carry OK - see "Important Note," below)
17000 Josiah Parker Circle
Isle of Wight, VA 23397

Time: 6 PM

IMPORTANT NOTE: While it is called the Old Courthouse building, it actually houses the County s Executive Branch, including the Board of Supervisor s meeting room. So, carry IS allowed. Thanks for the prompt and courteous return call of Lt. James Pope with the Isle of Wight Sheriff s Department, who confirmed the status of the building.

If you plan on speaking, there will be a signup sheet in the meeting room. If you don t plan on speaking, please show up anyway and stand with us.

We will be handing out GSL stickers, please pick one up. Also let me know that you are there, speaking or not, so I have a good headcount.

Here is some press coverage, including comments from VCDL:

A reporter from the Smithfield Times sent me this email (I kid you not). I am choosing to laugh and not cry. It will be interesting to see their coverage, as I m sensing some bias:

"Mr. Van Cleave,

Why do you think it is necessary for members to attend the meeting armed? Is it an attempt to intimidate people?
