One thing I want to do for the Allentown show this weekend is make our table look attractive, to entice people to come over and talk with us. The typical literature isn’t very interesting or eye catching, especially when you’re in a room with wall-to-wall guns.
In the mail is a digital picture frame, which I will use on the table to play video. I’m planning on running the NRA Katrina video on that, with some literature placed near it. In the other corner of the table, I’m going to borrow a Shuttle PC from my friend Jason, along with an LCD touch screen. My idea was to put up NRA’s O-Match application up full screen and let people use it. I figured kids especially may be drawn in, giving us an opportunity to talk to the parents. Can you say “Barack Obama is a free speech stifling, gun banning weasel? I knew you could.” This should be something different, and we’ll see how this experiment goes. I might lose my faith in humanity if I discover that cats and humans have more in common than I once thought, but if I get some more people at my table, and on my e-mail list, I’ll be happy.
