At home somewhere I have a flyer about some kinda gun show or auction or something in Waxahachie (Ellis County, just south of Dallas). As I recall, it's some time in OCT. I'll try to find the notice and post something here later but I'm curious as to whether anyone else has any information about this.
Excellent - thank you! I've saved that URL for future reference. And I finally got a moment here to post the information on that event in Waxahachie.
It's the Ellis County Friends of NRA. Evidently they have a website at www.friendsofnra.org/TX but I've not checked that out yet. At any rate, here's what I got from the postcard:
2nd Annual Dinner and Auction
9 OCT 2008 (Doors open 5:30 PM)
Waxahachie Civic Center, 2000 Civic Center Lane
Dinner Ticket - $25.00 each
Live and Silent Auctions, Drawings & Games
They also have a package that includes some extras. But it appears to me to be primarily a fund raiser rather than a gun show, per se. I'm a relatively new member of the NRA but I believe the "Friends of the NRA" is a program for fund raising - but I might well be wrong about that.
The Waxahachie Civic Center, BTW, is more or less on the SE corner of the junction of I-35E and US-287.
Financial institutions have to toe the line between "security" and people who BARELY remember their own name, much less be able to keep track of secure authentication credentials. Until this changes...
