What an amazing day and a great turn out at Minnesota Carry Day & Safety EducationExpo 2013!

We estimate that several hundred people came through the event, every info presentation was full and we had a number of notable personalities show up, including: Sen. Mary Kiffmeyer (30 R), Rep. Brian Johnson (32A R), Rep. Tom Hackbarth (31B R), Rep. Jim Abler (35A R), Congressional candidate Tom Emmer, and Congressional candidate Rhonda Sivarajah (sorry if I missed anyone!).

Thanks to the TCGO team of volunteers who helped out at the event, your help at our vendor table was invaluable: Michael A., Brent A., Kevin A., and Shannon P. (Minnesota Chapter 1Million Moms Against Gun Control).

A huge thanks to our event co-sponsor Gretchen Morris of Alpha Apparel &Promotions and Pistol Packin Mamas who did so much of the initial leg work to arrange the venue and who took on a huge share of the planning for the event.

Thank you to Sherburne County Sheriff Joel Brott and his deputies for participating in and supporting the event. And thanks to all of the participating vendors and presenters: 
Minnesota Gun Owners Civil RightsAlliance.

And so much thanks to hosting venue Zylstra Harley-Davidson, Elk River and GM Mike Matter for opening up their facility to us and bending over backward to accommodate this event.

A huge success, and thanks to all of the page members who showed up to support this community outreach event, it was great meeting and talking to all of you!

We hope this is the first of many similar outreach and educational events that we'll be a part of organizing.
