    Hey Gang,
    A friend of mine has been working to get this event rolling, and I wanted to get the word out on the forum for anyone interested. This event is to raise awareness of firearms, and to show the community that we are just regular people who just like to exercise our rights. It will be held this Saturday, 2/16 from 12-4pm at Coffee Villa on 4th Plain and NE 131st Ave. Here is a link to the event on facebook for anyone interested. Come out and support our 2nd Amendment rights, meet some good people, drink coffee, and have a good time.

    Also, I understand that KGW news is going to be covering the event, so it will be some good exposure, but that means that we should be on our best behavior.

    I hope to see some of you there!

    Welcome to Facebook

    You're right. It might. But there is a gun show somewhere just about every weekend.

    I'll be there, even if there is the gun show you could stop by before and after the show and show off your new purchase

    Well aparently not many were willing to go waste money at the gun show.

    This was a great turn out and had people lined up out the door for a while.

    It was great of Tony and coffee villa to put this on and I hope they do this more often.
    It was great to talk to a lot of like minded people.

    I also enjoyed talking with Joey Link for a while. I hope you put more nwfa meetings together.

    Out of curiosity, how could we spread the word about these kind of events more effectively? I did post it here, and Tony was on KPTV news the night before as well as on KEX radio. It was also posted on other websites like opencarry.org and opencarryvancouver. Is there a good avenue we could pursue to advertise an event like this in the future so more people would be aware and hopefully attend?
