View Full Version : Positive guns/school/calguns (updated with pics)

This is done with Kestrylls endorsement.

I coach high school softball and every year for a fund raiser we put on a golf tournament and sell tee sponsorships which gives advertising to the sponsors and gives money to sports/music/arts through the parent booster club. Every group has to sell so many to fund the program for next year. I have no problem selling my quota.

This year I got to thinking about all the negative guns and gun owners have with schools. I got Markleys Gun Shop in Watsonville to get a $100 tee sponsorship. Then I got to thinking that with permission I would buy a $100 one myself for Calguns. Then as I was looking over the flyer I noticed that the $500 one gets your name out there a lot better. There are very few $500 contributors and many $100 one so the $500 ones wont get lost in the mix.
i want to thank kes and all others who donated to make this possible.

the event went off fine. some positive discussions about calguns and guns in general. nothing negative. if there is flack it will come after the thank you in the local newspaper. i was promised that our calguns logo will head the list and will be bigger than any other. we had banners on 4 tees and one at the sign in station. here are the pics.

thanks to all who donated so far. am getting close.

great idea! paypal sent. hope the school doesnt mess this up for the kids.

Im on top of getting what we pay for as I am a fighter and am ready for a battle. the good news is the person who is the head of the booster club I know personally and his daughter came up through the softball program and after talking to him about this he said it wont be a problem and is totally on board.

i also wear my calguns shirt from time to time practicing with the girls and at some of the games. and all my girls know that i hunt and shoot guns for fun. also last year i started a couple girls shooting (with parents permission.) they loved it.

when you do it give me details and if you need a contribution let me know. this is something that just might catch on.. also if what im doing is successful im thinking about hanging a banner on the baseball fence like other businesses do. we have a few spots left.
