Help Celebrate 45 Years of Business At Skip`s Gun & Sport Shop in New Hampshire

Friday, September 3, 2004

On Saturday, September 4, from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., make plans to attend Skip’s Gun & Sport Shop’s Labor Day Weekend 45th Anniversary Event in Bristol (837 Lake Street) as it celebrates 45 years in business! Festivities include a kids’ archery contest (with prizes for every shooter),  Paintball and Airsoft Challenges, and free "5 Alarm" chili for those willing.  Skip’s will be offering big "in store" sales all weekend. Governor Craig Benson (R), U.S. Representative Charlie Bass (R-02), and Executive Councilor for the Governor, Ray Burton, will be in attendance, as will a representative from the Pemi Fish & Game Club. While there, be sure to meet your NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC), Scott Newhall, who will be hosting an "NRA-ILA Information Table,"  where he will be providing information on how you can become more politically active in your community.  Scott is an NRA member who, in his volunteer leadership capacity as EVC, assists pro-gun candidates with phone banks, literature drops, voter registration drives, precinct walks, and other campaign activities. He also works with and organizes volunteers to affect firearm-related legislation in New Hampshire and on Capitol Hill.  Please be sure to stop by the ILA table to meet your EVC and learn how you can make a difference in this year’s elections.  For information/questions regarding this event, please contact EVC Scott Newhall at (603) 536-1345,, or via e-mail at:
