Convention Highlights

  • Demo’s and Meetings planned with a full line up of top notch presenters
  • Vendors, Fur Buyers and all sportsmen are invited
  • Reservations are currently being accepted for Vendors (we expect a good variety of quality vendors)
  • Camper hookups available with plenty of parking and primitive camping
  • The drawing for a Gun Raffle is held during the Annual White Elephant auction and bidding for the famed Brown Hat.  This is a major fund raiser for the Association, so plan to participate, help the association, and maybe pick up some real bargains.
  • 3nd annual Outdoor Equipment Auction.  This will be held after the White Elephant auction.  So, if you have outdoor equipment that you no longer need or use, why not consign it to our auction.  The association gets 20% commission on items bringing less than $500; 8% on items over $500.
  • Friday Eve Fish Fry.  Friday evening after the dealer building has closed we will be having a fish fry.  So, plan to get a meal and sit down to socialize with old friends or new ones.  If this works out as we hope, it may become an annual tradition.  This is an Association effort, so if you are a fish fryer or have some fish to contribute or prized garden produce, contact Jason.
