Jus wondering....Are the St Louis riots going to affect the CCA show?
For those (such as myself), who didn't have a clue what the "CCA Show" is, here is a clickable link that makes it a little more understandable.Jus wondering....Are the St Louis riots going to affect the CCA show?
....... and no ammo.Not that I think it would come to that, but I doubt rioters and looters are likely to try and commit their criminal acts where everyone has guns.
^^^^^^^^St Charles is across the MIssouri river (very clean good historic city) and two cities (bridgton and ferguson) away from St Louis very very unlikely to be a issue....its kinda like crossing the Rio Grande river in texas ...
to me the only very remote possibly would be traveling from StL airport to St Charles but even then that is multi-lane highway and they are not going to let that get shut down at all.......Missouri's governership has changed hugely since the ferguson riots to a no nonsense governer...protest yes...riot no...
....... and no ammo.
I was at a show in Baltimore where a group of.....uh........ young gentlemen were robbing people as they left the show.

The Southside is getting worse these days. Murder rate/violent crime is creeping up there as well. Sad.They do not riot on the South side of St Louis for that very reason. I lived in Dutchtown on the south side when I was young and we would never venture north of downtown.
While I lived in St. Louis for a short time (about a year, back in the seventies), I was hoping someone would chime in here who knew the city better than I, and you obviously do! I had a sister out in Ballwin, and would visit her every few months most of my life, in addition to several relatives in the Maplewood area, but my clearest recollection of Saint Louis, is the climate in that area, which (no offense intended), I found really oppressive, because of the humidity in the summer months! Having spent most of my life in the "high country" of the Rockies (and further North), I could never adapt to that river bottom country! I would second Doug45's thoughts regarding places to see in that area, and one of them should be the Arch!St. Charles and St. Louis are two different worlds. St. Charles has been voting conservative almost as long as St. Louis has been voting liberal. There is no mass transit connecting the two. St. Charles still has a small town feel even though it has grown a lot. I drive from St. Charles to west St. Louis county every day and wouldn't even know there were protests and riots if I didn't watch the news. This was also the case during the Ferguson riots. It's a short drive west on I70 from the airport, so no problem there. To be honest, if anyone wanted to visit the arch or other downtown attractions, construction is more likely to cause delays than protests. But, St. Charles County (St. Charles, St. Peters, O'fallon, Wentzville) provides plenty restaurants and attractions to keep you entertained for a long weekend.
