I have 3 or 4 people right now that have offered to do some table time at the La Crosse gun show Jan. 7-8-9. I've left a message with Bob Pucci to see if we can get a table but so far he hasn't called me back. If anyone happens to run into him at a show, please put a bug in his ear for me.

I hope he gets back to you soon...I'm looking forward to manning that table for part of the time ;)





Do we have a table reserved for the LaCrosse gun show?

No tables available at LaCrosse Jan 7-8.   I just listened to the Bob and Rocco message center.

However, there is a gun show at Tomah TP Supper Club on January 7 and 8, and we have a table.   

Now who would be available to man it?

We have a table at the Tomah Gun Show located at the TeePee Supper Club
Fri 3-8
Sat 8-5

Here is the location
http://www.teepeesupperclub.com/

Organized by G & B Gun Show Promotions
608 474-0334
608 474-0335

We need someone to set up before 3:00 p.m. on Friday.  Can you help???
Sounds like Cooper can help on Saturday.

If we cannot get someone to set up before 3 Friday, I'll have to call and cancel the table as we don't want Appleseed to get a bad reputation amongst the gun show organizers for not showing up after having reserved a table.   &)

So if you can set up Fri before 3:00 we really need your help on this one.  @)

(I've got to work Friday/babysit Fri evening, and my daughter is moving Sat. and I need to help her.   So I am not much help at the show this weekend but can supply you with all the stuff.)

I have a table for Midwest Marksman at the La Crosse show this weekend.  I'll get some fliers from Dennis and do as much promotion as I can.  Hope to see you in March at the rifle club. :)

OG: Professor Gun, mpthole, and I will be working the La Crosse Gun show.  mpthole has been kind enough to allow us to use a part of his Midwest Marksman table to promote Appleseed.

AFTERMATH is too busy looking for gainful employment, so I've been drafted to be the evil genius of MN for a brief spell...  and he doesn't realize that La Crescent, MN is actually part of WI.

Now were the heck is the Tomah TP Supper Club?
I only rarely go to Tomah, since I drive to Ft McCoy through Sparta.

Jackie the Rifledog will be wearing her RWVA hoodie, and I might strap her miniature 1911 on her hind end (open carry for WI, of course).

And what the heck are the planned hours for the WI Instructors meeting at boat-hand-building central on Sunday?

Here's an update from the Bob and Rocco Gun Show here in La Crosse tonight...

At the Midwest Marksman table (that mpthole was kind enough to allow us to share with him) we had three or four people and a young man interested in the shoot here in March. 

We left the Appleseed materials that vmt provided us with mpthole at his table for tomorrow, and Professor Gun and I will be back on Sunday to help mpthole with his table and to promote the Appleseed cause.

I'd say it was a successful night for it being so slow and empty  O0

IDAR [internal during action report] from the Tomah Gunshow, such as it was:

More AS'ers than attendees it sometimes seemed: vmt193, kmk, KiloGulf and his daughter, and I rolled in after dusk.

Relatively low and older turnout than expected, but handed out materials to at least 6-7 people, one of whom was clearly interesting in attending a shoot.  Most significantly, a SFC Riviera from Ft McCoy came by and informed us that there is a new civilian-accessible shooting range on base that was built this fall under the MWR group.  It has plenty of space, pistol ranges to 50yds, rifle ranges to 200yds and the silly "let's throw things in the air and try to bust 'em" facilities commonly seen in regions of the country where people have more money than sense.  He appears to be assigned to one of the firearm training units on base, but I tried not to be too nosey on a first date.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring?  I do know that I can't bring Rifledog, since the exhibit hall has a cooking and beverage area. Thus, there will be no young, trim, attractively clothed, energetic female to draw them to the Appleseed table, but vmt193 and I will do the best we can...
