“We are looking for exhibitors with a specialty related to hunting, fishing, and outdoor activities,” says Georgia Henderson, Public Information Director.  “It takes great exhibitors and sponsors to be able to grow this event each year as well as attract a large attendance.  As in the past, we want to offer a variety of exhibitors, educational opportunities, great food, and fun activities for all ages.”
