Austin, TX -(AmmoLand.com)- The Texas State Rifle Association (TSRA) reports its 2016 TSRA Annual Meeting & Foundation Banquet was one of the most successful events in the association’s history.
The annual event, held at the Austin Marriott North Hotel in Round Rock, Texas, exceeded fund-raising goals and will help to promote youth shooting sports programs across the Lone Star State.
As part of the TSRA annual meeting, the TSRA Foundation Banquet brought together hundreds of sportsmen and firearm enthusiasts who are dedicated to preserving our American traditions in shooting sports and youth education. The event featured live and silent auctions, raffles, and a lot of fun.
“Our future in shooting sports and hunting begins today, so its vitally important that Texans unite in support of programs that provide shooting opportunities and education for our youth,” says Doug DuBois Jr., executive director for the Texas State Rifle Association. “Today, we face increased urbanization and growing public apathy toward the rights of gun owners. The TSRA Annual Meeting and other events like it help us preserve our state’s traditions and defend the Second Amendment. We’re very pleased with this year’s turnout and the generous show of support for youth shooting sports in Texas.”
The TSRA expresses its sincere appreciation to its event sponsors AEPS, Inc. Texas Law Shield, Self-Defense Fund, and the Brenzovich Firearms & Training Center.
