The Illinois State Rifle Association will sponsor a scaled down version of IGOLD on Tuesday, October 29th. The venue for the meeting is the Howlett Building Auditorium which only holds about 500 people. The purpose of this event is to stop in and see your State Senator and ask them to vote NO on SB1966. If it passes the Senate, the Governor will surely sign it. As long as you are there, take time to go see your State Representative. If you are unable to be present, please call your State Senator and State Representative from your home or work.
Agenda for Lobby Day - Tuesday, October 29, 2019:
9:00 am Meet at the Howlett Building Auditorium
9:30 am Pledge of Allegiance
9:35 am Legislative Update
9:45 am Overview of our goal
10:00 am Briefing on lobbying the Legislators
10:15 am Head to Capitol to lobby Senators
(If time permits, please lobby your Representative)

I went. I didn't get a count but there were enough people (and enough IGOLD attire) so that we were highly visible in the Capitol.
