Notes: To help the Emerald Society sell raffle tickets, four of our adult leaders traveled to the Saratoga Springs Gun Show on a Saturday and Sunday.  It was time well spent, as we sold over $1,000 of tickets.

For most of the adults doing this, it was the first time we'd been to a gun show, which made it all the more fun and interesting.  There was something there for everybody (lots of really cool knives!).  We quickly found that the key to selling tickets was simply engaging people in conversation.  As soon as they learned even a little bit about who we were and what we were doing, people were quite generous.
