Fairfax, Virginia - Like most of you out there, I've had friends and family deliver that inquisitive look when telling them that I work for the National Rifle Association. I usually just break out a smile, slap my hand on their back and explain how they'd be hard-pressed to find a better group of people. That assertion has proven to be true when I've hit the road for Annual Meeting, Camp Perry and Friends Events like the one earlier this month in New Jersey. And apparently, that goes for the good people of Knoxville, Tennessee, too.
When Elizabeth Bush, National Manager of NRA Clubs, Associations and Range Services, arrived back from lunch, there was a cake waiting for her.
"The Knoxville Visitor's Bureau surprised us with the cake," said Bush. "Apparently they are excited about the opportunity to work with us. Come have a piece!"
Always available to lend a hand, I finished my lunch, knocked on Bush's door and partook in the first piece. Chocolate!
