We’re having a raffle!

We only have a couple of months left until we pick the winner in our January General Meeting. We still have a lot of tickets left, only $10 each.

And—if you sign-up a new WMSA member, you’ll get an extra raffle ticket to improve your chances. Our next general meeting is November 24, 2015, 7:00PM at Bass Pro Shops @ I-70 and I-435.


It’s time for another fundraiser. Last year we raffled off a Ruger 10/22 configured to look like a Thompson SMG. This year we’re raffling off an AR-15.

The rules for this years raffle are a bit different than from previous raffles. First, we’ve limited the number of raffle tickets to only 500. Second, unlike some previous raffles, we will not mail tickets to members to sell. Tickets will be available at all General meetings and at events where WMSA has a table. Third, in addition to building our treasury for the coming year, this year’s raffle is aimed towards gaining more WMSA members.

The tickets are $10 each. Only 500 are being printed. If you buy one ticket, you have one chance in five hundred of winning. If you buy two tickets, your chances rise to two chances in five hundred. As an added incentive, bring in a new member and get a free raffle ticket. Any current member who brings in a new WMSA member gets a free raffle ticket for each new member added to our rolls.

Bring your prospective new member to a General membership meeting and when the new member completes the membership application and pays their dues, you are handed a ticket, no charge! No WMSA funds were used to acquire the rifle nor the accessories.

The drawing for the rifle will be at the January 2016 general meeting…or earlier if all the raffle tickets are sold. Don’t want to wait until January? Go recruit new members, get a free ticket for every member and exhaust our limited number of tickets. The quicker they are all gone, the sooner we’ll have the drawing.

Tickets can also be obtained via mail by sending a check to the WMSA,  P.O. Box 11144, Kansas City, MO 64119.

If you win, what will you get? You get more than just the rifle. The rifle itself is a flat-top M4 clone.

It is the (WMSA) Election season

According to the WMSA By-laws, the terms of three of the Directors expired at the September meeting. In the July 2015 General Meeting, the three Directors whose terms were expiring, Carl Smart, Bonnie Werner and Mike Watson, were nominated for another three-year term.

Those three nominees were re-elected at the September General Meeting/Annual Picnic. The Board of Directors met in October to select Officers for the coming year. The current officers, Kevin Jamison (President), Carl Smart (Vice-President), Bob Hanson (Treasurer), and Curt Cotton (Secretary), were retained in their offices for another year.
