There is another gun show coming up in October at the Ontario convention center. Will calguns have a booth and if so, how do we sign up to volunteer?

If you guys are serious contact SeanCasey and or bplvr (although I'm not sure he checks pm) or contact me and I will make sure they get the message.

I don't have first hand knowledge of why there's no booth at Ontario. I'm guessing it's a couple things. First, there may not be anybody stepping up to coordinate the event. Second, since we missed some shows, we may have lost our "spot" in the show. Meaning, if you're a continuous presence there, the promoters honor your right to claim the spot but if you miss shows, they'll sell your spot as needed.

So the thing is, somebody probably needs to step up and committ to running the booth there on a regular basis (as opposed to volunteers who man the booth for a couple hours).

It's not too huge of a committment, depending on the number of shows per year but it can eat up a chunk of time and IMO you do need to be a bit more committed/dedicated than the average bear, OK boo-boo?

After that's done, just fill 'er up w/ volunteers and go edumacate some peoples.

I sent a PM to SeanCasey. I will volunteer to run it on regular basis if necessary. I went to that show before I ever even bought a gun and I think it sucks that I didn't have the opportunity to discover Calguns until months later, when I just stumbled upon it while researching my 1st OLL build. If we really want to change things we can't hide behind our keyboards, we have to get out there.

So, I received better intel.

We are requesting table space every month from the promoters and are waiting on their favor. So stand by for that. Nobody knows how long it will take.

We do have a standing offer to share space w/ the NRA's table at any show. So that could be a useful option for now @ Ontario. If anybody wants to go that route I will help get you more info, just let me know.

Update for anyone following this thread. It appears that we are not going to be able to make this happen for the upcoming show this weekend. Perhaps we can try again in December. Thanks to everyone who was willing to volunteer their time though.

I have worked all three of them beginning with the Costa Mesa one about 6yrs. ago. The Ontario one is also smaller than Costa Mesa, being a much smaller venue. That said, it is popular and it gets pretty crowded. One good thing, it has air conditioning, which Del Mar does not.

Ammo Bros. was nice enough to share some of their space so we could have a booth at the very first one held at Ontario. We had our own after that.

Keep checking this forum for any future Ontario shows where we will have a booth. Working the booth is a great place to meet Calgunners and put a face to a user name. I have made some good friends from working the booths.

Do not be worried if you are unsure of what to do as there will always be an experienced member there to assist you. Be up on some of the 2nd Amend. cases and be aware of any pending bills or laws so you can answer questions.

Remember, everyone was new at it at one time or another.

Please reply as usual on the BOOTH THREAD so Vic will know who needs CGN Polo shirts.
It's easy ....just answer the 3 questions and that's all you have to do.

The order close for the CGN Blue polos is midnight on Wednesday.

I joined CGN and became a contributor because I wanted to get proactively involved and actually do something, which is what I see everyone on here begging each other to do. I started this thread for that same reason, and as far as I know there was zero interest in this topic before that. There were no responses from any mods, coordinators, or whatever. I continued to pursue it anyway, as best as I could, with help from readysetgo. I even volunteered to commit to running the thing on a regular basis, if that was what was needed to make it happen (although I really don't have free time and I would've had no idea what I was doing). Until I was finally told that this was just not going to happen this time around.

Then all of the sudden its back on. Although I'm confused about what just happened, I am excited to participate. So I cancel the other plans that I had made when I was told it was a no go, and volunteer again to work the booth. I answered the post from pennysdad with an email as requested, and I was the first one to respond to the "BOOTH" thread from bplvr.

So someone please tell me why I am not one of the people who will be working the show. The "BOOTH" thread is closed, I am not on the list, and the Event Booth Coordinator doesn't check PM's. So what am I supposed to do?

I know that I'm new here, and I'm not trying to show any disrespect to anyone, but this is crap. Between school, work, and family, I have very little free time and now all the time I spent on trying to do my part for this event is just wasted. Thanks.

Why has this event become so cumbersome to setup?

We have done many shows, its easy or it was easy to do.

I have shirts, how many, what sizes and shipped to whom?

Het Dirte my thoughts exactly Im on the list, but now it's closed and my shirt size is not on the order. I canceled plans for Saturday to help out. I just wish someone will post some real info. It looks like 2 people were creating list of volunteers.. I guess the privite email list wins...

Quick note to everyone.

If you did not receive a cancellation note from me, then the Show is still happening.
I have deleted the other thread and will have a new one up in a minute to help remove "ALL" confusion.

Any further issue, please PM or email me directly.

One more point. We are going to the Ontario Show because I worked out an arrangement with our NRA Members Council Partners. If it was not for this arrangement we would not be there. It is not as easy as just wanting to go, the show must have space for us and currently they don't. So as a favor to me we are sharing space with the NRA at the prime spot at the show.

Thank you very much Jacob for clarifying this and thank you also for working out the arrangement. I hope my previous post didn't come across as a dig on you, because that's not what I was trying to say.

I'm looking forward to meeting and working with everyone.
