Gun Blogger Rendezvous Guest of Honor

As you know from a previous announcement, the recipient of the money raised by the Gun Blogger Rendezvous will be Project Valour-IT. Project Valour-IT collects money to buy voice actuated laptop computers for injured and recovering servicemen and women with injuries that prevent them from using a conventional computer keyboard. With the voice actuated laptops they can contact friends and family by email. Project Valour-IT has purchased and delivered over 1,200 laptops so far, and they're still getting more!

I wanted to have our Guest of Honor be someone representing Project Valour-IT, and my first choice was Major Chuck Ziegenfuss, and the stars have all aligned and Major Ziegenfuss will be our guest of Honor! In fact, he will be there for the entire Rendezvous, staying at the Circus Circus with us, and getting in some range time on Saturday with us too!

If you would like to learn more about the Major, check out this post, particularly the lower part where Major Ziegenfuss is addressing a number of convalescing military folks at Walter Reed.

He is also a blogger, and you can read his blog "From My Position - On The Way!" HERE. If you'd like to Meet Major Ziegenfuss, meet a great bunch of bloggers, and help a fantastic cause, plan on attending the Gun Blogger Rendezvous this October in Reno. Get your hotel reservations in and your registration sent in right away

You won't regret it!

I've been putting this decision off for as long as possible hoping that something would change and I wouldn't have to do this (again).

I've had a series of family and personal emergencies that have put a substantial strain on us financially.

I've worked the numbers over and over again and they just keep coming out on the wrong side of the ledger.

There is simply no way we can work out my coming to the GBR this year. It's just too far and will cost too much.

I've been really hoping to make it this year and it disappoints me greatly to have to come to this decision, but there's just no getting around it.

I know you'll all understand and keep me in mind because I'll be reading your posts from there again this year and I'll be there in spirit.

Try not to blow up any cars in the parking lot this year.
