My sister, my mom, and I drove to Buck Fever in Seguin, Texas to help at the Texas Brigades booth. While my sister and I were at Buck Fever, we were able to meet new people and talk to many kids and parents about Texas Brigades.
There were tons of people at Buck Fever. We were able to initiate conversation with most of them to provide them with information about the camps Texas Brigades offers. We decided to walk around handing out fliers and give a short elevator pitch about Texas Brigades. When I talked to the first person, I was very nervous, but it ended up going well and my sister and I handed out many fliers. We talked to a few people who were interested in becoming volunteers, donors, and possible future cadets.
There were many local vendors set up at Buck Fever. One in particular caught my eye and I couldn’t pass them up. They were selling jerky sticks and beef jerky. You can find more about their company at http://www.therustgameplace.com. I purchased the Lemon Pepper Smoked Beef Jerky and it was one of the best jerky flavors I’ve ever had. They are from New Braunfels, Texas.
It was an amazing experience at Buck Fever. Once again a Texas Brigades experience helped me overcome my shyness and increased my public speaking skills. I definitely plan on attending next year!
