V.P. Gay Christie discussed a proposed event for the Greenhorn Valley. An event that would involve possibly two Chamber Businesses. Christie stated that with the recent crime events in this community many people are worried about their safety. She thought that having some type of a “Know your Gun” or “Self Protection” type of event would be of value for the area. She also stated that many people may own a gun but don’t really get to practice with it, or some people would like to get a gun but don’t really know what to purchase. By having local vendors such as RL Airgun Supply and Bam Bam Firearms people could not only get to try stuff out but purchase from them. General discussion led to liability and the terminology used in how the event would be listed or advertised as the Chamber cannot be hosting or a sponsor due to liability issues. Pre-registering and charging a fee, having signed waivers and other items were also mentioned. The board voted to proceed with such an event and Gay Christie will be in charge of it.
