Any word on Hoyt or Bowtech yet?

Like many outdoor enthusiasts, Mathews was surprised and concerned to learn that The Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, PA was banning many types of guns and accessories from being displayed and sold at the upcoming show in February. We are a proud supporter of our Second Amendment rights—rights that protect all other freedoms. We stand firmly with Americans that have made their voices heard and who choose freedom. Corporately, Mathews doesn’t attend the show and of course will not be in attendance in 2013.

I believe Hoyt has already backed out. Bowtech and Mathews were not on the list of vendors.

Sounds like they are saying, we never attended before, and we definitely wont be this year
Does this include people sponsored by Mathews to shoot in the 3D competition?

From the IBO web site
IBO & Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show
Due to the announcement by Reed Exhibitions that manufacturers and vendors with legal modern sporting rifles, accessories, magazines and related items will not be permitted at the 2013 Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show, the International Bowhunting Organization (IBO) will not be attending the event.


The PA-3D Bowhunter’s Challenge and IBO Indoor Nationals will take place as previously advertised, albeit without IBO representation. The local PA-3D Bowhunters organization has opted to host and oversee the shooting event on its own. The logistics involved in administering the competition, along with registered participants’ concerns with travel plans and airline reservations, are contributing factors for the decision to continue these events.
Proceeds received by the IBO in shooter fees, along with the Rinehart Target Fee, will be donated to the National Rifle Association specifically to fight the threats to The Second Amendment currently being faced by law-abiding American firearms owners.
The IBO stands with those who have chosen to boycott the Eastern Sports and Outdoor show and strongly condemns the action taken by Reed Exhibitions.
We will not stand idly and tolerate the ignorance of political correctness in the face of the truth.

Correct me if I am wrong but I'm pretty sure they do not attend any of these types of events IE. SHOT Show, ATA, etc...
