Eastern Outdoor Show!!!

Post  Sam Wright on Mon Jan 21, 2013 8:18 pm

In case you plan on attending the Easter Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA this year, be advised that quite a few vendors and celebrities have backed out of the show due to the promotor's decision not to allow certain guns and magazines to be displayed.

There is alot of talk floating around to the boycott of this. Just shows that the power of unity can be strong.

I hear the entire waterfowl hall will be vacant! Cool We need more of the fishing vendors to drop out too! A big one has in Towne Marine but still more are needed.

ESOS Cancelled

Post  Sam Wright on Thu Jan 24, 2013 1:58 pm

Just saw this on the ESOS website - copied verbatim.

Reed Exhibitions has decided to postpone, for now, the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show given the controversy surrounding its decision to limit the sale or display of modern sporting rifles (also called ARs) at the event. The show was scheduled to take place February 2-10 in Harrisburg, PA.

“Our original decision not to include certain products in the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show this year was made in order to preserve the event’s historical focus on the hunting and fishing traditions enjoyed by American families,” said Chet Burchett, Reed Exhibitions President for the Americas. “In the current climate, we felt that the presence of MSRs would distract from the theme of hunting and fishing, disrupting the broader experience of our guests. This was intended simply as a product decision, of the type event organizers need to make every day.

“It has become very clear to us after speaking with our customers that the event could not be held because the atmosphere of this year’s show would not be conducive to an event that is designed to provide family enjoyment. It is unfortunate that in the current emotionally charged atmosphere this celebratory event has become overshadowed by a decision that directly affected a small percentage of more than 1,000 exhibits showcasing products and services for those interested in hunting and fishing.

“ESS has long been proud to participate in the preservation and promotion of hunting and fishing traditions, and we hope that as the national debate clarifies, we will have an opportunity to consider rescheduling the event when the time is right to focus on the themes it celebrates.”

Sam my sister was over at Harrisburg for a car show this pass weekend and many were talking about the closeing of the show. Lot of folks there were in support of the vendors. Guess it shows where the voice can be hear and understood. Lets hope that this support spreads across the country to other areas as well so that the sportsman/shooting enthusist will be heard and not blown aside bt wave rideing stupidity.

This was just another example of a foreign company (UK) trying to manipulaste the american sportsmen. Reed Expo thought by nixing the black rifles from the show they would receive attention from our twisted media. While their plan backfired, they lost a whole lot more then just the proceeds from this show.
