USSA/BFA 2008 Candidates Reception a complete success
By Linda Walker
Recently, Buckeye Firearms Association had the privilege to co-sponsor a Candidates Reception with the US Sportsman Alliance (USSA). This is the third year that Buckeye Firearms has played a major role in this worthy event. This was the first year that the Ohio Republican and Democrat parties also joined as co-sponsors of the event, amongst other organizations.
Candidates, senators and state representatives from across the state were invited to this reception to mix and mingle with sportsman, hunters and Second Amendment supporters. This is always a great opportunity for individuals to talk face to face with the candidates and for the candidates to hear from the people of what their concerns may be.
Many of the division chiefs from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and the Division of Wildlife (DOW) were on hand to greet attendees as well.
A standing room only crowd filled the room. Amongst the crowd were several Buckeye Firearms Association leaders and volunteers. The impact that Buckeye Firearms has made is very apparent, as the word gets out of the good things that are happening here.
This event should be placed on any sportsmen's, hunters or gun owners must attend list. We look forward to participating in this important event for many years to come.
