3)      Decided to keep the dates of May 7, 8, 2011 with set up on May 6

4)      Decided NOT to have the show open on Friday night – Friday will be for set up ONLY

5)      Show hours this year:

a.       Friday set up Noon – 5:00

b.      Saturday 9am – 5pm

c.       Sunday 9am – 3pm

a.       more mobile meals

b.      less messy meals

c.       Hotel discounts

d.      Radio spots

e.      Ryan needs to give us signs to put up saying that there is food and where it is (basically a banner above the serving area)

7)      The insurance that the club picks up in April WILL cover the gun show.  We just need to call them and ask to have the 4h center listed as an additional insured.

8)      Volunteer needs during the event

a.       Security:  4 people at all times (one at each door and on roving to relieve those at the doors for breaks)

10)   2 people need to count the day’s receipts at the end of each day

11)   Need 200 more zip ties (Mike has 100 we can use)

12)   Flyer this year will not contain advertising.  Will be a simple 8.5x11 flyer like Montrose’s but on our signature green paper.  Black lettering – Gayle will design the flyer again

13)   Would like to put up a board to advertise local businesses.  They can provide us with up to an 8.5x11 advertisement and we will post on the board for free.  We need to ask those who are advertising if they would donate door prizes.

14)   We need to have the legal “posted notice” signs made this year.  Jim volunteered to make the stands.  Bob volunteered to check into pricing to have them made.

15)   Need door prizes in addition to the ones mentioned above.  Ask Cathy McElman to seek these out as she’s asking for WOT door prizes.

16)   Need volunteers to hang flyers in the towns listed below.  We will not be going as far south as we did last year.  Gun club will pay $40 per two people toward their lunch and $50 toward their gas.  Need to hit ALL hotels, convenience stores, pawn shops, gun shops, chambers of commerce, restaurants.  Towns are:

a.       Olathe, Delta, Junction (one team of two ppl)

17)   We need a volunteer to call gun clubs up and down the western slope to ask if they will let their members know about our show and perhaps post a flyer

18)   Need to get flyers to the Montrose show

19)   Need to let the Friends of the NRA groups know about the show and ask if they can let their members know.  Gayle will handle this
