Promoting at Massachusetts Gun Shows
« on: September 16, 2008, 04:40:28 PM »
I think we can get some traction out of getting a table at some upcoming Gun Shows.  But I need some help manning the booth (we can do it in shifts)

I bet some of you MA guys are going to these things already.  (I usually don't, but will start)  And I think we should hit at least one 9/20-21 or 10/4-5 before Winchendon to help get a crowd.

I'll need help here from anybody in MA that wants to see Appleseed succeed, not just people who are already riflemen or instructors.

Flyers can go out at Chester, VT (Sep 20/21) and White River Jct, VT (Sep 27/28) gun shows, IF you get flyers done in time. All I need is 1 copy, so we can photocopy.
They have men amongst them who know very well what they are about, having been employed as Rangers against the Indians and Canadians and this country being much covered with wood, and hilly, is very advantageous for their method of fighting. . . . ".  Lord Percy

Sounds like New Englanders to me.

E-Mail them is best, to both my home and work e-mails.

I'll get copies made.

Lloyd, just so you know, have some stuff ready to go for 4/19 next year to give out at Saratoga, as well as flyers for Proctor later this month.

We'll either be doing Bennington and New Haven (both VT) or Proctor that weekend. It's looking more like Bennington and New Haven all the time.

And, tell Dave Petronis (the promoter) I said hello. He doesn't know me as Nickle, but he does know me by my real name. We just don't do Saratoga.

Please remember to PM me as soon as you have firm dates for an Appleseed presence at any gun show, so I can add it to the "working schedule."

Didactic, just so you know, access to the "working schedule" is somewhat limited. That's why I put that in the Instructor Schedule area. THat way, all of the Instructors and Shoot Bosses can see it. After all, most of the people that replied to that thread can't see the "working schedule" area.

I work gun shows all the time (part time job, family gun business), and I don't list them here. It's well enough know on a regional basis, so we're covered.
