Free Grassroots-Election Workshop in South Portland, Maine
Monday, April 5, 2004
In opposition to an anti-bear hunting ballot initiative question on the November 2, 2004, ballot, NRA-ILA is hosting a FREE Grassroots-Election Workshop in South Portland on May 1. The Workshop and related materials, including food & drink, are FREE! At the Workshop, you will hear from organizations in Maine that are working to protect your sporting and outdoors traditions, NRA-ILA representatives, and NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinators (EVCs) on what you can do locally to ensure this initiative is defeated on Election Day. Your EVC is a local NRA member who is working closely with NRA-ILA to defeat this bear initiative by providing critically-needed volunteer support for a variety of activities. Rest assured, anti-hunting extremists are already working full force in the Pine Tree State to ensure the passage of this initiative. We must be prepared to defeat their efforts at every turn. The Workshop will be held on Saturday, May 1, from 9:00 a.m. - Noon, at the South Portland Marriott, 200 Sable Oaks Drive, South Portland. Registration and breakfast will be from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. For additional information, please call (207) 871-8000. To reserve your seat, please visit http://www.nraila.org/workshops/. To register by phone or for more information, please call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683).
