NRA To Take Over Eastern Sports ShowVarious Sources, Bear Hunting Magazine
The National Rifle Association (NRA) released a statement last week that it was selected to run the outdoors show the next two years in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The NRA beat out 16 other hopefuls to take over the show, which had been run by Reed Exhibitions.
Reed Exhibitions cancelled the 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show that was to be held in February because their assault weapons ban created an uproar. Over 200 companies who planned to attend backed out after their ban was announced. You can read the original News Flash regarding this here.
The NRA said the nine-day event, to be held at the Farm Show Complex, will be called the Great American Outdoor Show. The show will feature shooting, hunting, fishing and boating.
