Gun Blogger Rendezvous --- R.I.P. ???

Nine years ago, when I first fired up the Gun Blogger Rendezvous, blogging was a completely different world compared to blogging today. A lot of the early bloggers are now more involved with Facebook, instead of blogging. The bloggers who blog almost every day are still doing well, but the mid to smaller sized bloggers are disappearing.

Looking back, I'd say the Gun Blogger Rendezvous has been very successful, giving a bunch of great folks a chance to get together once a year and socialize, shoot, raise money for worthy charities, and have a good time. The demand for such an event seems to be dropping, even though we have continued to add new activities each year. It is a lot of work to put on such an event, and moving it from city to city each year makes it many times more difficult. It has always been the kind of event I would personally like to attend. When you are running it, however, it's a lot more like work than fun, even though it is very rewarding too.

Unless someone is willing to step in and take over running the Gun Blogger Rendezvous, then the last Rendezvous has been held. If someone wants to take over for me, and run it in Reno, I can certainly work with them as to venues, contacts, and other details that have taken years to establish. I can even help at the event, including MC'ing, if needed.

If not, so long, and thanks for all the fish......... (You DO know where that line came from, don't you?)
