Default Calgun Event Standards

To all I got this from mom when I coordinated a show it may help the newbies. It is general info for the coordinators when mom ran it.
HK



CALGUNS EVENT STANDARDS

Positions

• Booth Coordinator. Person(s) responsible for organizing the show and expected to work one or more days of the show with the assistance of a co-coordinator.

Responsibilities include supervising the various shifts of volunteers and cash
donations. After the cash donations have been converted to the form of a check
and/or money order, payable to Calguns.net, the funds and post-event report are to be submitted to Calguns.net, Box 3736, Winnetka, CA, 91396. Please send a 2nd
copy of the report to Bplvr.

• Volunteers. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your shift to check in with
the Booth Coordinator and get your CGN Polo. Individuals are to put on a
friendly face and be approachable. Avoid conversing with one another if the
general public is present at the booth. Face your audience and avoid having your backs to the public. (Please remember that when wearing the Calguns polos, we represent CGN and should be aware of the "language" that the public can overhear -- this is a directive from Bplvr!)



1. Please, NO SMOKING, NO DRINKING OF ALCOHOL.

2. Wear the official blue polo - CGN T-shirts are not acceptable.

3. AM volunteers to arrive in advance to help with set up before the show
opens to the public.

4. PM volunteers to assist with tear down towards the last 30 minutes of the
show.

5. Calguns materials are to be displayed on the table; personal items are to be
stored below the table or out of sight.

6. ALL guns MUST be inspected and tied, and have a "Not For Sale" on
them.

7. Law enforcement personnel should be treated with respect at all times
regardless of the personal views of volunteers. Anyone violating this rule
will be asked to leave, sans polo, and your $20.00 will be refunded.

Talking Points

• You are not an attorney and cannot offer legal advice, but you can be open in
answering general firearms questions. If someone has a question that you cannot
answer, have him ask it on the forum -- that is what the site is for.

• Offer to discuss your experiences and why you enjoy being a member of Calguns.

• Stress that Calguns supports the gun rights of all. Steer clear of discussing topics that may be "inflammatory".

Booth Kit Items

• Banner and ABS display stand- 8ft x 8ft.
• Rifle rack that holds 3 rifles
• Blue table cloth
• Literature holders
• Flow charts ~ 150 pieces
• Sac PD letters -150 pieces
• Trifolds - 200 pieces
• Business Cards and card holders - 250+
• Gun case tags and decals -100 ea.
• Spare garbage bags
• Cash donation envelopes
• Zip ties
• Pens and notepads

Look at the top of the url for flowchart!

I see in the posts that newbies have asked for direction in what to do, what to say, what to learn, in order to be at the table. I read the responses and was not helped at all.

People said "the flowchart". What flowchart? Where is the post on Calguns goals and objectives. Where is the pamphlet on "who we are".

I know they must exist (and if not they should). But I can't find them. Will someone post links or send me stuff? I'm working the booth in Sac in November, and I'd like to be ready.

Bad news, I can't do the afternoon on the 9th. I am committed to work another job and since it is training, I am at the mercy of my trainer. Assuming that the show is a go, I would need someone else to step up and coordinate. I can still do the am shift.

With the loss of our Sunday coordinator, and the fact that Code of the West still has not confirmed our table ,this CGN event will have to be cancelled.

The next Vallejo show is in October and I can post a thread for it ,but we will again be on the wait list for a table.

Sincerely,
bplvr

uh ............this isn't exactly what I thought we were going to do .
As these are numbered 1 - 2,600 it is a lot harder to find anything.
Maybe you should call me to discuss.

Oh oh, this doesn't look right
ALL the shows are grouped into one long *** thread?

Anyone have any plans to do another booth at one of the Bay Area shows? I'm still willing to volunteer.
