Meeting Link

It will be at the George R Brown.  I’m going to check out the floor show.  I call it a poor man’s SHOT show since I do not have industry access to that one.

It was fun walking around the one in Dallas a few years ago, but not amazing.

I bought my newborn son a life membership in 2013 at the NRA convention in Houston and I upgraded my membership to a life at the same time for $300 each. I will go the NRA convention again.

If the NRA is still around and the show isn't cancelled, I plan on going.

I just ordered entrance badges, though I'm not positive that I'm going to attend.  Houston traffic is such a cluster around downtown.  And I'm not sure that I want to pay the going rates for a hotel close to the convention center.  

But the event in Dallas was definitely a good time, so that may sway my decision to the positive side.

There's quite a bit of street parking around the convention center, and an underground lot right across the street.  

Downtown traffic isn't bad if you avoid the rush hours, and I think a lot of places downtown are still low occupancy.  The nearby park and ride to downtown used to be full of cars - now it's two rows only.

In between gun exhibits you can hop on the monorail and ride it to the Herman park area, to check out the zoo or awesome Museum of Natural Science.

Looking forward to the show.  Maybe I'll wear my suit and heckle Wayne about how at least I paid for my own.

I actually had lots of fun there, Scot, but I ran into dozens of shooters and people I know in the industry, and I also got lots of cool swag and won a few prizes, scored some cheap deals, and watched Trump's address

We can set up a GOA membership recruiting booth right outside. At least GOA has done something in Texas.

It's also Labor Day weekend, so I don't know how turnout is going to be.

Downtown traffic should be light that Friday.

But early September temps will be hotter than Satan's butthole.

Now that is a good idea.  I suppose the entrance in front of GRB is a public walkway, as you know otherwise the Suits would try to get the booth removed.  Can't let anyone see what an effective pro-gun organization looks like or is able to accomplish.  

More that willing to man the booth for some parts of the NRA convention, and let folks know what GOA was able to accomplish this year.  Let's bring it up to the GOA crew during the summer when they've had a chance to take some time off.

I will wear my GOA, even better, see if we can get GOA shirts made, with ‘We got it done in 2021, Constitutional Carry in Texas’ on the back.

NRA expo is better than SHOT even though it's half the size.  Vendors want to make sales at SHOT and don't like regular folk taking up their time.

If Trump attends I’ll heckle him about why he’s so anti 2nd amendment.

I do intend to go at least two days and I will go to the meeting and i hope there is a way to speak or make a motion to fire Wayne.  I will have something prepared to say if the opportunity presents itself.

Does anyone have a printed agenda of the annual meeting.  I have not been able to find one online yet but that does not surprise me.

The actual business meeting should be on Saturday:  https://www.nraam.org/media/3327/2021-am-schedule-at-a-glance-72121.pdf

If you're looking for an agenda for the business meeting, it's usually distributed there, and it's very generic.  It will only mention "prior business" and "new business" and not detailed items that will be discussed.

I went to the business meeting in Dallas and iirc there is a time for people to speak and make motions.  It was mostly bs. Someone needs to state the obvious.

I had a good time at the Dallas one a few years ago and will be heading to Houston.
