 Enjoy the May 8-9, 2021 Meeting and Annual OGCA Display Show

The March meeting was fantastic, and we are grateful for an incredible 240 new applicants, 558 guests and a sold-out show!
We appreciate your ongoing compliance with Covid-19 regulations necessary for us to continue holding our meetings.

Members: join us on May 8th & 9th for the event we look forward to all year. The “May Show” includes the nationally recognized Annual OGCA Display Show along with hundreds of trade tables. Besides great buying and selling opportunities, you will see unique and interesting display-only exhibits. Be sure to vote for your favorite display on Saturday. In addition to the “Member’s Choice” award are cash prizes, beautiful plaques and four Minuteman Freedom bronzes. The Display Show is one of the most educational events to bring your family and friends to. Plus meet the members who “wrote the book” in the “Authors Corner.”

Guest Pass forms and Table Applications for May are on pages 11-14 of your last (Spring ‘21) newsletter. If you need copies simply email ogca@ogca.com or call (330) 467-5733. Guest pass forms are also available to members on-site. Tables sold out fast in March, but there are plenty of tables left for May as of this writing.

Are you interested in displaying and competing for a Bronze Minuteman (valued at over $4,000) and/or prize money totaling $3,400? The deadline to enter the Display Show is April 23, 2021. Call Sandra Schwab at (330) 467-5733 or email sschwab@ogca.com today to request a “DS” packet.  More information on under News tab, "
Display Show 2021: It is not that Hard to Present an Engaging Display."

Several spots remain in the Author’s Corner for members who have written firearm-related books. (You may also sign books from your trade table.) Contact the Business Office if you are interested in participating in the May 8 & 9 book signing and have not already signed up.

We must skip the May banquet this year due to Covid-19 spacing issues, but we are planning a heck of a shindig for 2022. Next year’s Annual Display Show and Banquet is April 30-May 1, 2022.
