Okay, since the above organizations need or support (which means money and people) is a charity dinner possible? The NRA has a few in this state but the one around me hasn't happened in a few years. If the numbers from the hearings and the rally have any bearing on attendence, then we could expect the same for this, no?

What do you guys think?

Considering how much money has been raised in the past by the friends of NRA dinners I think this has the potential to be a good idea but you need to put aside your differences Ray and work with the people who know how to do this the best as they rake in the most money, namely:

I'm in, and Jen has stepped up big time along with GFH and the Bullet Hole. They are good to go in my book.

Are you good to go in theirs? ;) Just busting your balls bro.

I know you mean well and I think at this point, we ALL have to come together, put aside our differences and focus instead on our similarities, and let's take this to the top!

If Anthony and Jen will step up and tell us what needs to be done to organize this - the problem may be that they start this stuff a year in advance with planning and preparing etc etc. I'm just concerned about the logistics really.

I used to work for an organization where we would start in June for a November fundraiser so about a solid 5 months of soliciting donations, working on a venue, food, entertainment, budgets etc. It would likely be possible but would need someone to head it.

Just a thought but maybe once warmer rent out one of the large areas outdoors (Swartswood, other parks etc) and have a BBQ type thing catered. Would certainty cut venue costs but still be a potential for speakers, auction, etc.

It would need to be headed by somebody that has done this before and has the contacts in place already. Whomever has organized the NRA dinner would be the obvious choice.
Anthony from GFH could do another gun test drive as a fundraiser too.

Why not do it at a outdoors range? Shooting, eating, hanging out... A premium could be charged for that too. The problem would be to find an accommodating range.

I know ANJRPC is the state chapter of the NRA, but...where is the NRA? I understand this is a multifront war. We could use some of their organizational input. I have to ask; Do you really get more attendance holding something during the week, or is that just done since renting a venue is cheaper? I would think we'd have more attendance having it on a weekend.
Effective gun control is a well placed shot.

Interesting ideas. I like the range idea but i don't want to make it a shooting event but a fund raising event. I would like to see the children show up since they are the key to our future. Cherry Ridge is far away for almost everybody sould of Route 80, so that would be a problem. Old Bridge would be ideal. Make it a Saturday, catering would be ideal, and make it "kid friendly". Could that happen?

a outdoor range " BBQ " style would work, but at this time of the year hardly suitable. Anything indoor would probably be way over crowded unless at a large hall or something

What about seeing if OBRPC, CJRPC, AND Shongum might see if they would want to put it out to the members, the normal matches will be adding 10 dollars per entry with the extra going to the NJ2AS to help support outer rights. Maybe even fill in a few open days on the weekends with something that people like and is easy to coordinate. Maybe extra speed on steel matches with a little higher entry fee also to help fun the cause. I sure know I'd be willing to to only shoot more, but pay more to help fun this. Might even help other or get other off their butts to bring new shooter who have wanted to try steel, get along side friends, like minded people and increase the awareness of what's going on and not only raising money, but increasing the number of people who are active in the fight were in.

Just an idea to expand on.

Do what we did on the bus on the way to Trenton, 50/50's.

Whatever it takes, asking for money over and over if fine right now for many of us who are active being we will do it anyway, but the number of shooters out there who do that, just shoot and while they may here things here and there, they aren't as active as many. Here is a way to change that and they get to have fun while doing it.

Location would also be tough, north or south or central.
I get a feeling the majority of people on this forum reside in the northern part of the state.
I went to a work picnic at a place over the summer located more near the center of the state. The place was absolutely awesome and would keep adults and children entertained for hours. There were large pavilions, and the food was delicious. They had 3 pools, driving range, canoes on a little pond, horseback riding, rock climbing wall, obstacle course, inflatable bridge fighting, and a massive playground.
My boss said the place was extremely reasonable, it came to about $55 per person.
I'll get some more specifics and the name if the place. It would make a great venue for something like this.

This is the place I mentioned in my previous post. I'm not sure how booked they are, but I could spend a whole day there a feel like a little kid again. This place would be perfect for children and adults alike.

It's a little further south than I remembered. But it's right off rt.42, minutes from 295 and the a/c expressway.

It takes months of planning and lots of upfront money to make this happen people. We should've had 5,000 people at the rally and we got a fraction.

Just a FYI, I wouldn't expect much from ANJRPC other then a token appearence. They might show if we have a veggie platter and don't ask them to do anything. Figure if ask them to speak, they would require a speaker's fee. You know, they are busy doing the 'heavy lifting' in the back halls of the State House. We saw how much swagger they had with ONLY 23 acts against us and Sweeny's openess to bone us dry. My balls are pretty heavy....how about lifting them.

Unfortunatly, it seems that this will never happen. The "Friends of the NRA Dinner's" were always good, so I thought this could work as well. Guess not.
