"Camp Vigilance" is our new field HQ. If you have been to Outdoor World in the past simply go to the main office but instead of turning into Outdoor World itself, continue 1/2 mile down Shasta Road. Take the first driveway to the left and follow it back to Camp Vigilance. Check in at the Comm Center. Registration and training is daily at 7:00am and 6pm (until daylight saving time ends)

In our locale, tan clothing is all the camoflage you need.
No display of long arms, rifles or shotguns. Sidearms are for personal protection only and must remain holstered at all times. STATE LAW PROVIDES FOR LEGAL OPEN CARRY OF SIDEARMS ON GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE LAND.
We continue to exist as a viable force in this debate because of strict adherence to our SOP. If you need a reminder, please visit http://www.minutemanhq.com/hq/sop.php
