Lee’s Note: This just in from Manatee Gun Club board member, friend, range guru and raconteur Chris Baden. It’s one of the best ideas I’ve heard in a long time — a mixer. We need to have more of these, more often. Please don’t forget to RSVP.

I shall see you there.


Dear Fellow Manatee Gun & Archery Club members:

If you are a member of Manatee Gun and Archery Club or would like to become one here’s your opportunity! I am personally sponsoring a reception at O’Bricks Irish Pub & Martini Bar in downtown Bradenton this coming Thursday Aug 4 from 5-9. Great food and beverages will be provided and served in their new private banquet facility that I have reserved for this event. (it’s spectacular) This invitation is open to all members of MGAC and anyone who has wanted to join our club but had concerns due to recent past issues.

It is not confirmed, but I am seeking the board’s approval to waive the $50 registration fee if guests join MGAC that night. The annual membership is $100 and we are developing a new member benefits program. You can be part of this! This will be a great opportunity to mix and mingle with other members and generate some excitement around our 50+ year old club.

Door prizes and raffle item sponsors include Aimpoint Optics, T1 Ammunition, Amendment II Armory,  and S3 Custom Gunsmiths with more sponsors expected to join prior to the event.

RSVP is required as space is limited to the first 75 attendees. Bring your membership card, check or cash if you haven’t joined yet. If you need a replacement card, let me know and we will get you one prior to Thursday.

Our Second Amendment is precious and we are the chosen few who are doing something to preserve and defend it. I hope you all will come.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon as time is of the essence to make this event great!
