Ned Smith Event Pics from Today

Flanuva and I held a table at the Ned Smith Festival today in Millersburg. I was very disappointed that not one member showed up to say hi, but was very encouraged by some of the people we did meet. Over 75 vendors were there along with a few thousand visitors. Many were curious about the site, most never heard of it. One man just moved here from Florida and has been looking for a way to connect with PA hunters...turns out he lives 10 minutes from me so he was very excited to come and sign up. A few signed up for a "remind me to register" email and a chance to win HPA merchandise in the coming weeks. It was a good time and we were able to help a few ladies with setting up their tents as well, which in turn prompted them to notice who we were with....good press for us! Here are the pics and we welcome any new members who have signed up after seeing us at the fair.
It is obvious that we need to work on a better table for the banner and get a few HPA pens made up, people like freebies!!!

That flanuva guy sure does look handsome!

Seriously though, we had a great time but was a little disappointed that no one from the site made it out.

We talked to alot of people and some were interested but didnt have internet. The others that did, were interested and we hope to see some start posting.

Overall a good day ! Thanks to Dennis for coming out and enduring the hit on the head and the impending lawsuit

Sounds like you guys did a great job for the site.

Shoot straight

First year in a long time I didn't make it to the Ned Smith festival. I see you were across from Putt. Very nice location!

Re: Ned Smith Event Pics from Today

Something I need to put on my calendar for next year....although why put an ugly grumpy mug in that booth between those two friendly looking guys.

Guys I just want to thank you again for taking the buck by the horns to further a site so many believe in....top nothc class acts and one heckuva a team desgining stuff.

This winter I have plans to make a backdrop wall that will make it look like a hunting camp.... was going to construct it last winter, Going to need a enclosed Outdoor show trailer by the time all is said in done.

GREAT JOB!!!

Don't get to discouraged on not meeting alot of members...I have attended or put on several events and come to learn that just meeting even one new outdoor minded folk is worth the effort.
