Natchez Shooter's Supply To Sponsor GBR-II

I have just received word from Natchez Shooter's Supply that they will be generously supporting this year's Gun Blogger Rendezvous through the donation of gift certificates, and possibly some hats and shirts.

Natchez is another company with whom I have dealt with in the past, and have always found them to be courteous and helpful. If you don't have a Natchez catalog, give them a call at 1-800-251-7839 and get one on the way. They have a huge amount of stuff, and while you're at it, thank them for their support of ther Gun Blogger Rendezvous. It never hurts to say "Thanks!"

The Rendezvous greatly appreciates their generous support! Thanks, guys!!

Room Reservation Info

Things are cruising right along in preparation for this year's Rendezvous. We have now received the group code from Circus Circus so you can book your rooms and get the discount group rates. This year we set it up so you can get special rates for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights. Several folks last year didn't head home until Monday, so the Sunday night rate will prove handy this year.

The room rates for Thursday, October 11th., and Sunday, October 14th. are $49 per night. The rate for Friday October 12th., and Saturday, October 13th. are $89 per night. All room rates also have an additional tax added to the price. Included in the room rate is free wireless internet (usually an extra $10 per day) and a package of coupons for some freebies and discounts. The room rate also covers the hospitality rooms for us for all four nights, so we have a common meeting location for our group.

To book your accommodations, telephone Circus Circus reservations at 1-800-648-5010 and give them the group code of


If you have any problem with getting your room reserved, let me know, but you shouldn't have any trouble. JimmyB, The Conservative UAW Guy has already got his reservations in and it went smoothly.

When you get your reservations in, please send me an email at

b l o g (at) w h i d b e y (dot) c o m

And let me know so I can put your name on the list, and get you mentioned on the blog as planning to attend.

You will also need to register each person attending the Rendezvous to cover the Saturday dinner. I will have the Rendezvous registration information posted in a few days.

As last year, any money raised by the Rendezvous beyond immediate expenses will go to help others in need. Last year we helped Dan McKown.

Remember, the Gun Blogger Rendezvous is not just for Gun and Mil Bloggers. Anyone with interest in shooting sports, blog readers, and anyone else who would like to meet and hang out with a bunch of right wing gun totin' wackos bloggers with similar interests, go for it! We'd love to see you there.

Keep checking in for more information as it becomes available.

Brownells to Co-Sponsor The Rendezvous

We are very pleased to announce that Brownells is again going to be one of our sponsors for the Gun Blogger Rendezvous coming up in October. Most of you out there already know about Brownells, but if you don't, here's the short version: Gun parts, gun tools, gun stuff, gun accessories, and all the gunsmithing goodies you could imagine, and to top it off, Brownells is a family run organisation run by some of the nicest folks you would ever care to do business with! I buy from them regularly, and highly recommend them as a premier gun goodies source!

If all goes according to plan, Larry from Brownells is going to try to attend the Rendezvous, so we can meet him in person. Hope he can make it!

Latest News

I have received confirmation from the Circus Circus hotel and Casino in Reno, and the Gun Blogger Rendezvous has been approved for next October's shindig! The room rates will be exactly the same as last year, and there will be a few new goodies included. The hospitality room will be available all four nights this time; Thursday, Friday, Saturday after the banquet, and Sunday. I should be receiving the Group Registration Code either tomorrow or Monday, and I'll get it posted as soon as I get it.

I've already booked the flights for KeeWee and I, and we plan to get to Reno around Noon on Thursday, and we plan to fly home on Monday, so we'll have all day Sunday to get into trouble, if we're not already in trouble after Saturday night!

I will check to see if there are any matches scheduled for Sunday. If so, I'll post what I find out.
