Appleseeds in Lubbock, Amarillo and Wichita Falls areas
« on: November 03, 2008, 06:35:14 PM »
The TSRA Director, West Region, is willing to assist in setting up the Appleseeds in the subject areas. He can provide contacts and scheduling info. He might be able to provide MONEY to offset range fees or other related expense IF TSRA gets some credit.
Any takers?

Contact the TSRA Regional Director for West Region, Rich Gilliland. He may be able to defray costs such as printing flyers, posters, banners, bug spray (long story behind that), Wire or cardboard backers for targets. Have a plan and an amount in mind. It benefits TSRA because it fills the void of rifle safety instruction which no one teaches. You will give acknowledgement to TSRA by.....Appleseed Amarillo gratefully acknowledges the support of the Texas State Rifle Association.

We'll keep it in mind, but so far we've got it pretty well covered in Amarillo.

No problem. Always helps to have too many assets than too few. Mind if I drop Rich a line and tell him about the AS?

Hey Michael, I think letting Rich know about all of our events is a good thing. He is a great guy and he seems willing to bend over backwards to assist us now that he has attended an event.


Ash, we should see if we can get Rich to help us with promo for the Amarillo events this year. He is another guy just like West Texas who seems to know every person in the state by their first name. Maybe you and I can talk this week by phone about the Amarillo events, I want to get you all the promo we can get for these events this year. Thakns to both of you guys for all the hard work you are doing.  ;)
