PLAN TO ATTEND FREE MILWAUKEE GRASSROOTS WORKSHOP!
The NRA-ILA Grassroots Division will host a FREE Grassroots Workshop in conjunction with NRA's Annual Meetings in Milwaukee. This Workshop has been a regular part of NRA's Annual Meetings for a decade. At this event, you will hear from NRA officers, staff, and your fellow NRA members on what you can do in your own community to ensure victory for the Second Amendment in this year's elections.
We will also discuss how you can work with your local Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC). Your EVC is a local NRA member who is working with the various pro-gun campaigns in his area to provide critically-needed volunteer support for a variety of activities, including: phone banks, precinct walks, literature drops, voter registration drives, Get Out The Vote & Election Day activities, etc. EVCs also promote NRA-ILA's legislative agenda at the federal and state levels.
With the 2006 elections in full swing, it is critical that we start implementing our grassroots battle plan to ensure we are ready to meet these electoral challenges head on as Election Day 2006 approaches. Rest assured, the anti-gunners are already re-doubling their efforts to ensure the defeat of pro-Second Amendment candidates in critical elections across the country, so we must ensure we are prepared to defeat their efforts at every turn.

We look forward to seeing you in Milwaukee during the 135th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits!
We know about Nuge neing there. One of our own started the bitch fest to NRA about his not being invited. They invited him then.
I didn't know that, and figured I'd post it in case someone wasn't aware.
diodn't mean that to come off the way it did,
With the speakers there, I will be VERY disappointed in anyone who misses this opportunity.
BTW, if they allow video, somebody PLEASE get vids of the Nuge and Gen. Franks presentations for me.
