The 2016 Gun Blogger Rendezvous is set for September 8 - September 11 in Reno, Nevada!
Once a year Gun Bloggers, Gun Blog Readers, gun writers, shooters, gun association folks, and industry representatives from around the country gather in Reno at the Silver Legacy Hotel & Casino to visit, socialize, compare notes, discuss everything firearms related, and get in three range days covering everything from long range rifle, steel shooting, defense, and more. At the Gun Blogger Rendezvous there is something going on from breakfast to well into the night! 2016 marks the Gun Blogger Rendezvous’ 11th Anniversary.
This year, Lucky Gunner will continue its role in helping coordinate the Rendezvous and is offering a $150 voucher to new media members who register to attend. This credit will be issued like a gift card and if redeemed by August 1, the rounds will be delivered to Reno for media members to shoot or take home with them from the event.
A Worthy Cause
The Rendezvous also raises money for Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) through a raffle of firearms and shooting sports items donated by our sponsors.
Last year, gun bloggers raised approximately $3,000 and this year, we hope to do even better. Every penny we can make from the Rendezvous goes to HAVA. Even the event organizer pays to register for the Rendezvous!
Attendee Door Prizes and Raffles
If you've been to the Rendezvous before, you know there are tons of door prizes and promotional items that go home with our attendees. The door prizes usually include a wide range of promotionally branded items such as hats, shirts, pens, mouse pads, and anything else that will help to promote the sponsor’s name. The door prizes also include less expensive items and products such as books, cleaning kits, product samples and so forth. Of course, sponsors have also been very generous in the past with some higher end items as well that we make a part of a raffle. These items, which have included firearms in the past are raffled off with the proceeds going to HAVA.
Hotel and Accommodations
Many of our non-range activities will take place at The Silver Legacy Resort & Casino. To make your hotel reservations, call The Silver Legacy at 1-800-687-7733. Once you register, we'll send you an email with the group rate code and more details. This offer is only available by phone, not from their website.
What to Expect
Expect a lot of fun and a lot of time to shoot in the name of gun blogger fellowship and HAVA! This year's Gun Blogger Rendezvous will feature several of the events that have made the weekend a can't miss event in Reno. From a day of steel target shooting to cowboy action shooting demonstrations. If you have heard of it in the world of shooting sports, we want to make it part of the weekend!
