Default CGF Booth: World Ag Expo, Tulare CA - Feb 8-10, 2011

Official thread: CGF's Booth at THE 2011 World Agricultural Expo

This is year #2 doing a CalGuns booth at Tulare's annual World Ag Expo: 60 acres, over 1,600 vendors, well over 100,000 show attendees...and pretty much all of them like firearms and jobs, it's a lot of fun to be there!

Kudos to you folks up there for covering it. Are you all covered for help and manpower?

Not yet, I've gotten a lot of PM's over the last couple of months of people asking if they can help at the Expo this year...now we'll see who's willing to follow through with A. committing and B. showing up.

I was pleasantly surprised last year with how many solid volunteers showed up, it made the event a lot of fun.

Nah, we did it last year in 7 days. I've been asking about getting a booth reserved for 6 months and just got the okay a couple days ago.

Heck no, the inside booths are small, lame and the same price as the 40x40 outdoor booth. We got a phenomenally better location this year, right in between one of the big white tent pavilions and the food court.

For a map, go to this interactive map of the expo.
-click "Search Exibitors"
-"Exhibitor Name Contains" type in Calguns Foundation - submit search
-click on "The Calguns Foundation" that shows up in the results box below
-map with indicator will pop up, Booth K38

Here's a picture of the map. If you go through the above process, it brings up an interactive map so you can see what other vendors are nearby & other useful info.

CGF has funded the booth, the CGN community chapter is volunteering and we have yet to finalize how much CGN/CGF material will be distributed. Clear as mud?

I suppose it's probably time to close this thread to avoid confusion between this one and the official thread.
