Here's a Deep Dark, Secret.........HOW does a guy who likes to shoot, get involved in "Friends of the NRA?" I've lived here for almost 20 years and gave up trying to get involved in this worthwhile activity. TexasRedNeck was kind enough to get me some contact information so I could get hooked up........and I did. It was odd that TXR who lives so far away from me, got me the contact info for people 10 miles away from me. Now, we'll share the contacts and get some more folks involved right here!
I attended the meeting at Tortuga's Mexican Restaurant in Baytown (in the San Jacinto Mall complex) and we discussed a whole range of ways that new folks could get involved in supporting the NRA efforts. I'm retired and have no money to give them but I do have some time. I met some nice folks who are dedicated to helping the NRA. The next meeting is 3/27 at 6pm (same place). Call for further information.
As examples of how we can help, I signed up to man the booth at the Liberty Jubilee in the town square of Liberty Texas. I'll give out NRA information and sell raffle tickets for a nice selection of fine firearms. I'll be there 4 hours but plan to hang around to see the sights, later.
On the next weekend, I signed up to man the NRA booth at the Dayton "Ole Time Days" for 4 hours.
The activities are fun, I'll get to meet new people and help the NRA as well. It's a great way to get involved!
Listed below are contact numbers for the Friends of the NRA organizers. Each individual gave his permission (to me personally) to list their numbers. They WANT your help. They want you to get involved and they asked me to distribute the contact info to make that happen. Please call them. I called Carl initially but I met all of them. They are real nice folks!
