For those who do not know and would like to attend the sixteenth annual 2001 GUN RIGHTS POLICY CONFERENCE (GRPC) in Cincinnati, Ohio. The theme is "GUN RIGHTS AFFIRMED!" The conference will be held at the Drawbridge Inn & Convention Center (just outside of Cincinnati) at 2477 Royal Drive, Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, on September 21, 22, 23, 2001. The cut off date for this special rate is August 31, 2001. SAF has negotiated a special room rate of $79.00 to $129.00. For hotel reservations call 1-800-354-9793 and mention you are with the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC).

This event will begin with a reception Friday evening. At this time you will have the opportunity to meet many of the conference speakers and quests, including congressional pro-gun leaders.

Registration for the conference will begin Friday evening at the reception from 7:00p.m. to 9:00p.m. and will resume at 7:00a.m. on Saturday morning. The conference will begin promptly at 8:30a.m. Saturday morning. The Saturday program includes a complimentary continental breakfast a 7:00a.m., with a luncheon at noon. On Saturday, the conference adjourns at 5:00p.m. Another reception is planned for Saturday evening from 6:30p.m. to 10:00p.m. Sunday a complimentary breakfast is planned and starts at 8:00a.m. and the conference will run from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m.

This conference is sponsored by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and the Second Amendment Foundation.

For those whom have not attended one of these events, you will come away impressed.
It is hard to believe, but the only cost to you is the cost of your room. As you can see above - food and ((libation)) is complimentary.

The conference and hundreds of dollars worth of materials are free! Books, monographs and ohter materials -- enough to start a Second Amendment library are free, as are Saturday, luncheon, Friday and Saturday evening receptions and morning and afternoon snack breaks. Other meals, travel and lodging are to be paid by the attendee.

No doubt there will be hospitality suites somewhere around the place. Most are hidden.

Gang, I highly recommend for those who are a gun nut, policy maker, gun rights advocate, second amendment follower or anyone who wants to spend a very entertaining week-end with lots of people who have your common interest, get off your duffs and go to this conference. I am so glad that it will be held this year nearby my home here in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Oh yea, for all you CCW & CCDW holders of permits and/or licenses, any and all of them are honored here in the Commonwealth. KC3 worked hard on that legislation along with KFFI both of which I am proud to say that I am a Charter Member.

Hope to see you there.

Just a friendly remember to all - time is getting closer to the above conference. If you live within driving distance, you owe it to yourself to sign up for this conference. Maybe once in a lifetime affair for some and darn well worth the time.

I just caught wind of this thing today (I guess that's what happens when you've been in Canada for the past week). It definitely sounds like something worth going to - unfortunately I will probably be in Germany at the time - a heck of alot farther away then Cleveland :(.

Well, the GRPC of 2001 has come and gone. What a display of high powered speakers, patriotism and networking.

For those who attended, you know what is was like and for those who did not/could not attend, you will never know what you missed.

You really had to be in attendance to the conference to feel the mood and absorb all the information that was disseminated.

A darn good turn out, considering the last weeks' horrible events here in the USA.

The only outlay of $$$$$$was my room costs, tips, travel to and from, which I drove the 120 miles one way. Everything else was gratus, and I mean the big shrimp, the mushrooms stuffed with great tasting whatever, cheeses, fruits, buffalo wings, pastry filled with variety of meats, oysters Rockerfellow and pastrys that would delight a king and queen. Those items were just the reception buffet foods. Luncheon menu was boneless rib steak, trimmings, drinks and a great dessert. Short breaks were also enjoyed as were the continental breakfasts. That was food and nurishment for the body.

The food and nurishment for the mind went over well also. Lots of good speakers on a big variety of subjects. I do not want to fail to mention all the bags of expensive books, magazines and literature that I carried home also. Again, FREE.

All this, complimentary of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms & the Second Amendment Foundation. Of course there were other donors which was recognized in a published pamplet.

Next year, Arizona. This was my first conference of which there have been sixteen, but you can bet your biddy that I will be at all of them in the future, God willing and my creek does not rise.
