The Central California Field Rep, Daryl Amble, wants to organize a Friends of the NRA committee in the little town of Taft. I went to the meeting and somehow ended up leaving as the chairman of the committee. Wow! That is a little crazy considering I was the youngest guy there. I am really excited about this thing. This is a really conservative town and area and if we have a fund raising banquet, it would be the only banquet like that in this town. I think we might do rather well. We already have a junior pheasant hunt that can be our little pet project that we put in a grant for and I would like to eventually see some sort of youth rifle program get started. I think this will be a great opportunity to raise some money for youth programs and also a great opportunity to do some membership drives for the NRA and the CRPA at our local event. Well it is a big responsibility, but I am up for the challenge. Wish me luck. I will keep you updated and don't be surprised if I ask for advice on here.

And I expect all of you Kern County THR members to buy a ticket or two from me too! ;) The drive to Taft isn't that bad.

It's always the young folks that take over power.

Maybe ************ will get a tad better soon.

How about sponsoring some shooting competitions and firearms raffles to raise money for a political war chest? Our state rifle & pistol club apparently do pretty well raising money via raffles.

Congratulations El Rojo. Now, where's Taft? I know where Lake Havesu is as well as Eureka, but Taft?

Congrats, Rojo!

Do you live in Taft? I love that area! I lived in Bakersfield for 4 years and rode motorcycles with several folks from Taft on a regular basis. I especially loved riding out through Maricopa and west on 166. Also, out on Soda Lake Road. I wish I could make a living there. I'd move back! I'd join your group in a heartbeat!

Get ready for a lot of work! Our Friends chairman starts early on the banquet and hits up all the "gun-friendly" businesses (such as mine) for donations. Our banquet is a huge event, raising around $20K for scholarship funds.

I don't think I've ever won anything at the banquets, but I always buy a corporate table, and end up buying some stuff at the auctions.
