North Dakotan Wins Friends of NRA National Survey Prize
FAIRFAX, Va.--(AmmoLand.com)- Chuck Russell of Bismarck, North Dakota, is the winner of the 5th Annual National Survey conducted by the National Rifle Association's Friends of NRA program. He received the grand prize of a Ruger Signature Series Mark I .22 pistol. Chucks's name was chosen from over 1,500 people that submitted surveys this past year.
A NRA member who has attended Friends of NRA banquets for years, Chuck had never before won anything from an event and was very excited about his early Christmas present.
Friends of NRA is a grassroots fund-raising program that fosters community involvement, raises money and gives 100% of the net proceeds to qualified local, state, and national programs.
For the fifth year in a row, Friends of NRA banquet attendees had the opportunity to fill out surveys asking about their recent experiences at their local Friends of NRA banquet. Their feedback provides insight as to how Friends of NRA staff can improve events and better cater to communities in the future. Friends of NRA banquets support community services such as firearm education, hunter safety, wildlife conservation, range improvements, youth marksmanship, and law enforcement, among others.
Participation in next year's contest starts January 1, 2010. Attend a Friends of NRA banquet in your area, fill out the survey, and become eligible to win a Winchester 1300 Pump Action Shotgun 12GA. The contest deadline is December 8, 2010.
