Gun Law Seminar – October 7, 2019 – 6:00 to 8:30pm: Presented by U.S. Law Shield at the Cocalico Sportsmen’s Clubhouse, this participation-based seminar will provide attendees the opportunity to make critical choices as they navigate through pre-written scenes surrounding a home invasion scenario. Participants will then be selected to argue why they made the choices that they did, and why they believe that they were JUSTIFIED under the law. The Attorney presenting the material will act as a prosecutor and raise counter arguments. Confront all the things a real attorney would, from evidence rules to matching facts with elements of a crime. This is your chance to see how a critical incident could play out in the legal system. 

Cocalico Sportsmen Members should go to https://texaslawshield.secure.force.com/pmtx/evt__QuickEvent?id=a2z5A00000VLIVr and register as a non-member but use the promo code “FRIEND” to waive the registration fee!!

Work Parties: Members who first joined in 2019 and have not completed their work party requirements are encouraged to attend the October 12th Work Party as this is the last opportunity in 2019. All current members are invited to come out to a work party to help with the many maintenance, repair, and upgrade projects to be done. This is your club, help keep it up to date! If you have any questions about your work party related membership status please contact Membership Chair Scott (215-527-6180) or Jen (215-527-6181) Maston or scottjenmaston@gmail.com.
