Hunting, Fishing & Outdoor Expo of the Two Virginias
LEWISBURG, WV(readMedia)– The State Fair Event Center will present the First Annual Hunting, Fishing Outdoor Expo of the Two Virginias on April 5 6, 2014. Dedicated to the outdoor enthusiast that exists in all of us; this is a chance to visit and shop with vendors offering equipment/gear, demonstrations and information on hunting, fishing, boating/kayaking, biking, camping and so much more!
The Fairgrounds is located in southern West Virginia, and is within 20 minutes of the Virginia border. “We really are pleased to pull together an expo that will appeal to enthusiasts of all ages. Furthermore, enjoying the great outdoors of the Greenbrier Valley, as well as throughout the Appalachia Allegheny Mountains, is what our area and our people are all about!”, explains Randi Nikolas ~ Special Events Concessions Manager for the State Fair. “Our goal is to create an event that brings outdoor enthusiasts to the Greenbrier Valley and showcases what our region has to offer. This will give retailers an additional opportunity to reach consumers in a way that has not yet been offered in the area.”
The Expo will be housed in the WV Building of the Fairgrounds and is climate controlled for comfort. Booth spaces begin at $200 per 10 x 10 space with the option to add additional spaces at a discounted rate. Participating vendors will receive discounts on lodging at area hotels, or may choose to camp in the Fair’s camp ground. The Fairgrounds are easily accessible from I-64; just 3 miles south on RT-219.
The vendor application process is now open and we are currently looking for vendors, outfitters and service providers that cater to these hobbies. Those interested may locate more information by visiting, or by calling the State Fair office, 304.645.1090, and speaking with Randi Nikolas.

About that Saltwater fishing expo in SOmerset
I had posted about the Fishing Expo in Somerset, remember someone said it was spam? :) Well, I did go to it and it was amazing. Holy shit! I found a new brand (to me) of Fly reel that seems to be really well made and inexpensive, for a fly reel. So soon as I get some free cash I'll order one.
It was really great, it's been a very long time since I've done any fishing and it just felt great to be around like minded people and really get to see what kind of tackle is used up here in the North East. Now I just gotta figure out how, when and where to get out

I went to the Flyfishing SHow there and it was amazing!
Pennsylvania gun owners
Pennsylvania gun owners threatened to boycott the state's largest hunting and fishing expo Tuesday after organizers announced that they would ban the display and sale of assault rifles at this year's show. Reed Exhibitions, a British-based company that runs the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg each February, notified vendors of the change in policy over the last several days, a company representative confirmed to The Inquirer.
The presence of so-called assault weapons and high-capacity magazines might have served as "a distraction" from other aspects of the event in the wake of the recent school shootings in Newtown, Conn
