Bring a Friend – Win a Gun

For every new person you bring to the annual convention and sign up as a new member, your name will be entered into a raffle for a gun.

It’s simple folks: times are tough. The economy is hurting our association too. We can’t continue to depend just on our existing members to fund all the important things the WBHA does. WE NEED NEW MEMBERS and we need to boost attendance at the annual meeting. Thank you for your support!
