Grand Sports Show

Five State Convention

June 15th through June 17th, 2017

Clark County Fairgrounds
 
Arkadelphia, Arkansas

There will be demos by trappers and hunters from over 16 different states.  Something for every outdoorsman in your family.

There will be vendor booths set up in 3 buildings and in an overflow area selling just what you need.  There will be hunting supplies, trapping supplies, deer calls, turkey calls, anything to do with the outdoors as well as handmade items...even items for the non-hunter and much, much more.

For more information or to be a vendor, contact Tim Ross at (870) 678-3473.
Tables are $25.00 each with a maximum of 8 per vendor.
What can you sell, you may ask.  Mostly anything that is legal.  There are some things where we will need to draw the line but contact Tim at the number above with any questions you may have regarding items to sell.
There will be special places for dealers that might want to park a car, truck, tractor, ATV, RV, etc.

This event is free and open to the public so bring the whole family!

Buildings will open at 8:00 each morning and close at 6:00 each evening.
The food building will begin serving breakfast at 7:00 with lunch served mid-day.
Breakfast and lunch will be prepared by Doug Henderson and his crew.

had a meeting today in Arkadelphia and everything looks good on the bands, and yes I did say bands. Thursday night country and blue grass, both young and old, Friday night country with a little kick right after the auction in the rodeo arena.

also looks like comfort inn is going to be the host hotel but there are two more wanting that spot so we will see as time permits.

just trying to keep everyone updated.
the camping area around the arena will be the same as last time and there will be workers in charge of that area to let you know the cost if any and where you can camp.

demo's will start Thursday morning at 9:00 and go every hour up to 4:00 each day

I will up date more after the elections and we know who the judge is

Not sure yet.  I'm booked there but the Chamber of Commerce is still working on a host motel.  Should know something Wednesday or Thursday.

Contact Tim Ross.  He is handling all that.

each state will get one table, if a distric wants to do raffle from that table we might want to add a table.
that would also give more room for selling shirts and caps

Now that you mention it.  The ATA probably needs two tables.

Thanks,

Looks like it's going to be a good show. Hopefully be able to attend Friday and Saturday. Is this one bigger than the last? Had other obligations the last time and only attended one morning.

Tim I know you're trying to wrap up the line up, but have you reached out to fletcher and bensky? The Little Rock furrier, may be willing to set up a booth. It would be interesting for people to talk with them about what a finished product takes.
