The booths include weapons, ammunition, guns, and knives. The show runs from 5:00 to 8:00 the evening of Friday, August 30th and from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 31st at the Blue Springs Elks Lodge. Admission is $5 at the door. Raffle tickets for a DPMS Panther AR-15 will be sold for $10. That cost will include admission.

What is raised will be used for their veterans program. “We visit the VA Hospital and the Veterans Home in Warrensburg, and take things that they need,” Stark said, “We just got done with a visit to the VA Hospital where we took cookies and distributed cookies to all the vets that were visiting the hospital.”

This is their first show. “We’re planning on other shows. It’s going to be an annual event. Our first show, you know, we’re not expecting a huge crowd. We’re definitely planning on growing this thing,” said Stark.

The lodge is located at 100 NE Brizendine Road in Blue Springs.
