Just a guess, but we can imagine you’d fly all expenses paid from anywhere in Canada to meet up with Rod & Tracey, in Calgary Alberta. You’d check into a hotel for a great night’s rest, only to show up to the Calgary Shooting Center and drop $5,000 in a shopping spree. Then you’d shoot some guns in their indoor range. You’d enjoy a nice lunch, and then head over to The Shooting Edge spend another 5 grand and shoot more guns. Then you’d debrief over dinner with the CCFR crew, zip back to the hotel for great night’s sleep, fly home the next morning, and have your $10,000 worth of winnings shipped directly to your home!
If that’s what the best day ever sounds like to you, you’re in luck. The CCFR’s Best Day Ever Contest opens Feb 1st and closes on March 10th. That’s only about 5 weeks to get entered in one of the coolest contests the CCFR has ever held. 2 runner up prizes will be awarded as well. A huge “firearm rights are human rights” neon sign worth around $1,800, and an equally awesome “these guns are not for sale” sign.
Here's what you do: donate $25 dollars to the CCFR using this link at www.ccfr.ca and receive one free entry into the contest, donate $100 and get 5 free entries into the contest. Read all the contest rules at ccfr.ca BEFORE entering. Again, time is running out, contest ends March 10th, 2024 so go to ccfr.ca right now, help the CCFR, and get a shot at the best day ever. That’s CCFR.ca, and if you win, Wilson and I, will see you there!
