USSA Hosts Annual Candidate's Reception for Ohio Sportsmen

The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) will host a legislative reception with the members of the Ohio General Assembly and all candidates for office on Tuesday, March 25, 2014 at the Riffe Center Theatre Lobby in Columbus, Ohio from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The reception is open to all Ohio sportsmen and women.

Legislators and candidates can use the informal atmosphere as an opportunity to meet and greet opinion leaders from prominent sportsmen’s organizations from across Ohio. This event is part of USSA’s annual effort to connect the Ohio sportsmen’s community with current policy makers. Over the years, this event has proven vital for both sportsmen and elected officials.

“Sportsmen from across Ohio should take this chance to meet face to face with their state senators and representatives to talk about issues affecting the sportsmen community,” said Tony Celebrezze, USSA’s director of state services. “I encourage all Ohio sportsmen to take full advantage of this opportunity.”

There is no charge to attend and drinks and snacks will be provided. The reception is made possible through generous donations from numerous sportsmen organizations including: Buckeye Firearms Association, National Wild Turkey Federation, Ohioans for Wildlife Conservation, Ohio State Trappers Association, Pheasants Forever, Safari Club International-Central Ohio Chapter, and Safari Club International-Southwest Ohio Chapter.

Location: The Riffe Center is located at 77 South High Street, Columbus, OH 43215. The Riffe Center is located across the street from the Statehouse in downtown Columbus and can be found at the intersection of State Street and High Street. Directions and a parking map are available by contacting the USSA national headquarters at 614-888-4868 or email us [email protected]. Parking is available under the Statehouse.
