NRA-ILA Staff and Volunteers will be at the Wisconsin State Fair

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

Beginning August 5 and running through the course of the fair on August 15, your NRA-ILA staff and volunteers will be manning booth #1306 in the Expo Center building.  Staff will be providing free NRA-ILA materials, offering memberships, answering questions and signing up volunteers to assist with the upcoming elections.  We will also have information available on current federal issues and election activity as well as state issues and legislative session summaries.

The Wisconsin State Fair is a great opportunity for NRA to recruit new volunteers to aid our electoral and legislative efforts during this pivotal time for Wisconsin and the country.  With the September 14 Primary almost a month away and the November 2 election following quickly behind, now is the time to get active and support pro-Second Amendment candidates.  We are on the verge of a tremendous opportunity to elect the pro-gun legislators needed to help restore Wisconsin’s rich firearm and hunting heritage.

Our Wisconsin NRA-ILA Campaign Field Representative, Nate Nelson, will be on hand along with Election Volunteer Coordinators from throughout the state each day to answer questions and provide information about Second Amendment issues.  For several days, your Wisconsin State Liaison, Jordan Austin, will also be on hand to discuss our legislative successes, as well as the challenges gun owners currently face in the state.  NRA-ILA Wisconsin Grassroots Coordinator, Brent Gardner, will also be available to provide information about upcoming Grassroots workshops and electoral efforts that are occurring in Wisconsin.

Please bring your friends, family and fellow firearm enthusiasts by the booth to learn more about our efforts.  If you are unable to attend the fair but would like to learn how you can help with NRA-ILA’s election efforts this November, please contact Wisconsin NRA-ILA Campaign Field Representative, Nate Nelson, at (920) 410-4004 or by e-mail at nranate@gmail.com.
