Legislative Reception for Ohio’s Sportsmen Announced
The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance (USSA) will host a legislative reception for all Ohio sportsmen and women with the members of the Ohio General Assembly on Tuesday March 19, 2013 at the Capital Club from 5:30pm to 7:00pm.
The Capital Club is located at 41 South High Street in the Huntington Building (across from the Ohio Statehouse) in downtown Columbus. This event is part of the organization’s annual effort to connect Ohio's sportsmen community with current policy makers. Drinks and snacks will be provided. There is no charge to attend.
Legislators can use the informal atmosphere as an opportunity to meet and greet opinion leaders from prominent Ohio sportsmen's organizations and field questions. Over the years, this event has proven vital for both sportsmen and elected officials.
"This is a great opportunity for sportsmen and women to meet and educate the current generation of legislators on our issues," said Evan Heusinkveld, USSA director of state services. "I encourage all Ohio sportsmen to take full advantage of this no cost opportunity."
The reception is only possible through generous donations from numerous sportsmen organizations including: Buckeye Firearms Association, National Wild Turkey Federation, Pheasants Forever – Ohio State Council, Ohio State Trappers Association, Safari Club International – Central Ohio Chapter, Safari Club International – Southwest Ohio Chapter, Whitetails Unlimited, 21 Consulting LLC, Associated Bird Dog Clubs of Ohio, Lake Erie Charter Boat Association, Ohio Wildlife Control Operators, Buckeye Brittany Club and Ducks Unlimited.
