Okay, I have the intell on reserving a table for the Saturday night banquet. Its $65 each ticket. I can put in the order for tickets, they send them to me, and I send them to you. Table for 11 people. If you already ordered your ticket, just give me your name to add it to the guest list. I'll reserve the table under the name of "WisAR15". You give your ticket at the door and they seat you.

You can IM me your name so I can update the list here, red letters untill I recieve your payment, then changed to green.

I'll let ya know as we get a bit closer for sure.

If we end up with more then 11 people (ARFcommers from out of state that may be comming and want to join us) can we get more then one table?

Sure, if they can let me know I can put them on the list for a table. Reserving a table is kinda group buy, but if someone has already ordered tickets they can still be added.

Perhaps a cross post in GD or something would be good then just to let folks know about it if they are interested.

Has anyone attended a previous banquet?
If so, was it worthwhile (in cost and time spent traveling/attending)?
I'd like to attend, but I need some positive aspects to sell my wife on attending also.

I know it won't be in Chicago anytime soon.

If you're available, you should go, if for no other reason than you may never go again. This may be your only opportunity to see the NRA propoganda brainwashing dinner. Hell, I'd be in for it, but alas, this is the year that all the good stuff happens when I'm not around.

Never mind, not starting it here, if you don't want to go to the convention, don't go. It doesn't seem like this is the thread for that, though.

Any idea who is speaking, the entertainment, or whatever?

I think you made your point. You're free to give money to whomever you want, as am I. Mine will go to the NRA. Since this is a thread for people who intend to go to the dinner, let it lie.

Meanwhile, anyone know who the speakers/entertainment will be?

I'm vaugly interested in going...I'm out in the MPLS area.

I'm an NRA Life member, but have never been to any NRA function

What's the thing like? Is it like one monsterous huge gun show?

Though I'd bet the toys there aren't for sale If there are any toys, that is..

Hrm, wonder what hotel prices would be like for a long weekend there..
