Dave and Greg gave us a brief outline of Saturday’s events at the Oratorical contest, and it sounds like it was a success despite some rough edges that need to be worked on before next year’s event. Dave also mentioned the idea of having the local clubs host a community fundraising event with the Harlem Ambassador basketball team and possibly several members of the famous Flintstones.

Our speaker this a.m. was Chuck Melki. He is well-known as a former 30-year policeman with the Genesee Co. Sheriff’s Dept. and the Clayton Twp. Police Dept. Chuck is the local expert and current trainer for those wishing to obtain a CPL license in this area. Once called a “Carrying a Concealed Weapons” Permit (CCW), it is now known as a Concealed Pistol License, or CPL. The training consists of an 8-hour class taught by Chuck at the Gabriel Pistol Range located at 3304 S. Linden Rd. in Flint. He provided detail on the 17 requirements to obtain a CPL, the “do’s and don’ts” of the CPL laws, and on those who may and may not obtain permits, etc…
