It is time.

As in years past, you can post here, PM me, or email me at dgwinn@royell.net to volunteer, and you are welcome to ask for specific jobs. The biggest change I see this year is that the new west entrance and staircase are open for business, so we should have better access and fewer bottlenecks than last year. No way of predicting the weather at this point; last year felt pretty cold at the time, but if we got temperatures like that this week they'd feel like spring had come early.

So, who's in?

Mike and valinda ill do the raffle ticket and button thing like i have been the last couple years
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks"

I just got a box of bumper stickers and buttons etc. from NRA to pass out. I would also like to gather petition signatures for YES, for Independent Maps (www.independentmaps.org) a non partisian effort to put gerrymandering in a grave. If you don't want to com-mingle messages, I can just hand out the NRA swag. Any, way, I'll be there.

Sign me up again. As in past years can I request to be at one of the doors to the Howlett Building.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.
