    I've never coordinated a gun show before, so cut me some slack here.

    OK, so I copied the following from AnnieO's post. So, shoot me...


    Support GCO by volunteering at the RK Gun Show in Cumming at the Lakewood 400 Exhibit Center - 1321 Atlanta Hwy, Exit 13 off GA Hwy 9.

    Please sign up for an hour or two to help GCO recruit new members. Gun shows are one of the best ways of getting GCO's name out there and signing up new members.

    If you have never worked a gun show before, it is easy and lots of fun. I can attest to that. Personally, I really enjoy volunteering at these shows. It's a great way to meet some nice gun people and to promote GCO. Please check out the Gun Show Guidelines for Volunteers.

    This is the first show I can remember in Cumming, so turnout should be heavy and the opportunity to sign up new members should be great. Consequently, more volunteers than usual would be appreciated and will almost certainly stay busy.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me, email me at [email protected] or post a reply below.

    ANYONE ATTENDING THIS SHOW FOR THE PURPOSE OF RECRUITING AT THE GEORGIACARRY TABLE WILL NEED TO PAY ADMISSION - NO FREE PASSES TO GAIN ACCESS TO THIS SHOW - GCO will gladly reimburse the entry fee if you spend a minimum of 2 hours recruiting - GooberTim

    Thanks guys.

    I've changed the sign-up list to show when you'll arrive.

    If you could tell me how long you plan to stay, I can also change it to show when you plan to leave.

    Thanks again. Hopefully, we'll get at least a few more...

    I have a prior commitment that weekend, but if I can break away at all, I will... not sure when, though, if at all...

    Uhhhhhhhhh, people.

    Thanks to those who have offered their time and efforts, but........

    There are still quite a few holes in the schedule.

    I know it's over a week in the future and we all have busy schedules, but.......

    Ya know, it's never too early to think about volunteering for a hour or two or eight...

    Thanks!

    Thanks Verb! Happy to have you! Really happy.

    We still have a week to go so, hopefully, we'll fill in the remaining blank spots.

    Although, I must admit to having a few scary thoughts about this time next week rolling around with those blank spots still being blank...

    Come on people. GCO and GPDO have a lot of members of the Cumming/Forsyth County area. It's rare that we have a gunshow in our area. Let's step up to the plate and make a good showing.

    You don't have to be a legal expert or quote word for word everything that GCO is doing or has done. All you have do is talk to people and speak from the heart about what brought you to GCO and how GCO has helped you.

    Most of us can give a couple of hours for the benefit of our favorite gun rights group.

    Step up and volunteer! Macktee won't bite (much).

    Yeah!

    What Adam5 said!

    The show is THIS COMING WEEKEND and we still have some holes in coverage of our table.

    GCO doesn't ask much from us in return for all it does for us, but helping sign up new members is one of those things. Please, if at all possible, volunteer to spend some time helping this weekend.

    Thanks.

    I may still be a relative newbie, but I know there are some North Fulton / Forsyth folks that haven't chimed in yet. C'mon! Spend a couple of hours browsing, looking at guns, fantasizing about how good that new gun would look on your hip, convincing yourself that you really do need another gun, etc. Then spend another hour meeting/greeting fellow GCO members & recruiting new ones. It'll be fun!

    Plus you just bought a new gun. How cool is that?
