Is this the first letter you've sent them? And if not, any responses to past letters?
The last couple years we were at the C. D. Hylton Senior High School and before that at the Battlefield High School so there's plenty of precedence for choosing local schools for the annual meetings.
I haven't felt the least bit unsafe at the past meeting locations but would certainly welcome the opportunity to lawfully carry at future meetings. BTW, if you don't like NOVEC's choice of locations, you can vote by mail-in proxy and still be eligible for the great membership attendee giveaways. Attendance is voluntary.
Please post any response you receive.
