Re: Pennsylvania's Largest Outdoor Show + District 8
The Show will be at the Tuscarora Valley Heritage Grounds September 13th and 14th.There is a large building that will be filled with tables for all kinds of outdoor related items. The cost of the inside tables is $25.00 for an 8' space. Most of the tables are already taken. To check on availability call Chuck Filler at 717-953-2013. Last year there was about 2 acres of tailgaters with all kinds of outdoor stuff,knives,traps, guns, fishing equipment, archery etc. You name it, it was there. We normally have between 800 to 1000 folks come through the gate. The cost for general admission is $5.00 with kids 12 and under free. There is plenty of free parking and another plus is all the property is level and easy to get around. There will be food vendors available while you are shopping. For the folks that use wheel chairs or mobility scooters the lanes between the vendor spaces are graveled. No electric carts, gators or ATV"s allowed in the vendor areas for safety reasons.Something different this year. The cost for the tailgater spaces will be $30.00 each. The difference will be that the spaces will not be lined off. You can use what you need. We have about 90 acres to use so we are going to try this idea and see how it works. We are hoping folks won't spread out to much but we will see how it works this year.
The show is easy to find. It is just off Pa Route 75 just before you get into East Waterford, Pa. For those that use a GPS the Street Address is 6201 Rt 75 South, East Waterford Pa.17201. As a general idea the Grounds are located 22 miles south of Port Royal or 15 miles north of the Willow Hill Exit of the Pa Turnpike. This is District 8's largest fund raiser and we appreciate you folks coming to help us out. All the money we earn is used for youth education such as youth field days or to put on trapper training seminars. There will be trapping demonstrations with experienced instructors starting at 9:00 Saturday morning ( Fox, Coyote, Cats, Beaver ). There will be a cable restraint demo offered as well but it 'does not' include cable certification. Another high lite will be the benefit auction held at 2:00 Saturday afternoon. The auction will be for 'Sporting related material only' no yard sale stuff. The items sold will have been donated to the District. Hope to see you there. Contact information is; Chuck Filler 717-953-2013 or Terry Swartz at 717-536-3733.
