Gun Blogger Rendezvous '06 - Financial Report

This afternoon we wrapped up all of the financial details of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. The intent was to try not to lose money, and, if possible, raise some money for Dan McKown's recovery and rehab. fund. Additionally, we wanted to make it possible for folks wishing to donate to Dan's recovery and rehab. fund to be able to do so. Now that all of the bills have been paid and the final accounting completed, here's how it came out:

$300.00 was donated directly to Dan's Recovery fund. $552.91 was raised through the registrations and through the fund raising at the banquet, for a grand total of $852.91 raised for Dan's Recovery fund.

On top of that, Dan and the rest of us all had a grand time in Reno.

Can hardly wait until next year............

I'm glad it went well. I hope next year ends up being better still.

I also hope we can get a larger group.

Reno again?

I'll be there next year. Just don't make it any further away than it was this last time around.

I already have the first draft of next year's contract from the Circus Circus in hand. Tentative plans are for next year's Rendezvous to be on the last weekend in September or the first weekend in October, again at the Circus Circus.

I would expect next year's turnout to be quite a bit larger. Since the Rendezvous was an "Unknown Quantity" the first year, I think a lot of folks weren't sure if it was worth going or not, but I think that question has now been clearly answered!!

It was Fan-Bloody-tastic, and to contribute as much as we did to Dan's recovery fund is a credit to all us Bloggers who were there in Reno, or those who could not make it, but sent a donation all the same.
Thank you to all.
