Items discussed at the banquet included general plans, the firearms that have been already ordered, and other raffles and auctions.

"The 2013 event was such a success that the Friends of NRA committee has already decided that there is an obvious need for more committee members," said Douglas in a news release. "So if you are interested in fun, fellowship, or fundraising, you can be confident that you are helping safeguard programs across the nation that prepare today's generations to be tomorrow's guardians of the Second Amendment."

During the meeting, the first firearm drawing was made-the winner was Brad Norsworthy of Hardinsburg.

This year's event will be 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27 at the Central City Convention Center.

Tickets for the event will be $30 each, which includes access as well as a meal.
