Message From Valinda Rowe:

Is this your first IGOLD?
Don't know your way around Springfield?
Really dread trying to find a parking spot in all the traffic?
Do you enjoy the company of like-minded souls instead of driving alone?

Reserve a seat on an IGOLD bus and avoid all the hassle! Sit back and enjoy the company of other Second Amendment supporters. The charter buses are a wonderful way to attend IGOLD. The bus will take you directly to the Prairie Capital Convention Center, pick you up there for the return trip home and you'll never have to worry about parking spaces, parking meters, or traffic!

It's fun, it's easy, and you can reserve your seat right here online!

Check back for additional buses!
