Default Addendum to the apathy thread

I'm going to reference the "This place has died" thread by Phat Daddy and expand on it. Approximately 8yrs. ago, I organized the first Calguns booth at the Temecula Rod Run. Unheard of to have a vendor displaying firearms and talking about the 2nd Amendment and Firearms at a car show. Only missed one IIRC since then. Five years ago I did the same for the Murrieta Rod Run.

In the early years for both, I'd have 5-6 members sign up to work. Then it went down to 4, which was fine. Lately it's been two of us, the two who have done it from the beginning. We understand everyone has a life and everyone gets busy, but in the time we began, the membership has increased. Unfortunately, people volunteering has gone down for some reason.

Bottom line, this may be the last one we participate in and I'll have to see how the Temecula Rod Run does next March. I say this because Kestryll can't be throwing money away. It costs $350 at one and $200 at the other one, so there is an investment there. My intent with this is not to guilt anyone into volunteering, I just hope someone reading this will decide to help out so we can keep these events going as we speak with a lot of people at the two day event.
