Default Cal Expo Gun Show - Sept 21/22 - Volunteers needed!!!

If you'd like to volunteer to work at the CalGuns booth at the September 21&22 Crossroads of the West Gun Show at Cal Expo, please post your willingness in this thread.

There are 4 shifts (2 each day - 7am to Noon and Noon to 5PM on Saturday, 8AM to Noon and Noon to 4PM on Sunday).

I will be there for all 4 shifts. I need 2 booth veterans on each shift and 1 newbie per shift. If you've done it before, I'd love to have you there again. If you've never done it before, here's your chance.

Newbies will have to pay $20 for the blue CalGuns polo shirt, but you get to keep it. Admission is free and we try to work out the parking costs, as much as is possible.

Here's your chance to step up and help spread the word and meet a lot of other CalGunners at the same time.

First come, first served, so volunteer early and often.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to meeting the newbies and seeing the veterans again.

Tom

The main purpose is informing people about Calguns. You get to meet other local CG'ers and talk to fellow gun owners. People will come up and ask various questions about owning a gun in California. If you know the answer, then answer their question and refer them to the Calguns website. If you don't know the answer, refer them to the Calguns website .

It is very casual and I always have a good time.

Grabbed this off the SoCal Del Mar thread.


Quote:
We all know about the current protest about the gun show being held at Del Mar, so now it is even more important to have representation there. You'd be surprised at how many people at the gun show have never heard of Calguns. Although at the booth we are not there to offer opinions (only information), it is important to point out that we have 2A and CRPA forums, in addition to Calguns Foundation and Calguns Shooting Sports Association info.

Please note new volunteers will have to pay $20 for their blue Calguns booth polo shirt.

Contact NotEnufGarage with any questions.

How do I attend as a new volunteer?

Please arrive at the requested time/correct location to check in with the Booth Coordinator and get your CGN Polo. Individuals are to put on a friendly face and be approachable. Avoid conversing with one another if the general public is present at the booth. Face your audience and avoid having your backs to the public.

1. Please, NO SMOKING, NO DRINKING OF ALCOHOL.
2. Wear the official blue polo – CGN T-shirts are not acceptable.
3. No hats.
3. AM volunteers to arrive in advance to help with set up before the show opens to the public, as requested by the booth coordinator.
4. PM volunteers to assist with tear down towards the last 30 minutes of the show on Sunday.
5. Calguns materials are to be displayed on the table; personal items are to be stored below the table or out of sight.
6. ALL guns MUST be inspected and tied, and have a “Not For Sale “ on them. Usually rack has not for sale sign
7. Law enforcement personnel should be treated with respect at all times regardless of the personal views of volunteers. Anyone violating this rule will be asked to leave, sans polo, and your $20.00 will be refunded.
8. Stay off your phone.

Talking Points
• You are not an attorney and cannot offer legal advice, but you can be open in answering general firearms questions. If someone has a question that you cannot answer, have him ask it on the forum -- that is what the site is for.
• Offer to discuss your experiences and why you enjoy being a member of Calguns.
• Stress that Calguns supports the gun rights of all. Steer clear of discussing topics that may be “inflammatory”.
• You are responsible for what you say. Be careful! There can and will be people there who may try to trip you up or who think they know it all and will challenge you. Giving no answer is better than giving a wrong answer. The default answer to any question you don't know should be to refer them to the booth coordinator or refer them to CGN where they can post their question and get the answer from one of the "legal beagles" available there.
• It is also not uncommon for someone to approach you and attempt to lure you into an illegal firearm transaction. Do not get involved in any such activity and if the person persists, contact Law Enforcement. The booth coordinator does not keep bail money on his person.

Here's what the booth typically looks like. General Calguns printed info, stickers, patches, t-shirts, and usually a couple interesting firearms (marked not for sale) on display. Note how happy you will be as a Calguns volunteer!

Change of plans... Crossroads show booth cancelled. We're going to try the McManns Roadrunner show at Sacramento Depot Park.
