    Number of exhibitors withdrawing from Outdoor Show continues to climb

    Next month, The Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show will take place in Harrisburg PA. The sponsors of the show is Reed Exhibitions. Reed Exhibitions imposed a ban on AR type weapons at this years show because of the deadly shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

    Since imposing the ban a number of venders, including Cabela's have decided to boycott the show. To see the complete list of vendors who are boycotting click this link ESOS Boycott Supporters | My Northeast Outdoors

    I am not a celebrity, sponsor or vendor but they can add my name to the list.

    On a side note, I am really happy how Cabela's is supporting thier customers.

    On their web site they claim to have 1,200 exhibitors and I am sure that number includes the ones that have stated they will not support the event. Cabela's, is presently featured on their web site.

    I applaud the people and businesses that have decided to boycott the event.

    It's a shame. I always liked going to that show, and since I am from Harrisburg, it was supposed to be a reason to go home for a few days. I planned on not going as soon as they said that a week or so ago.

    And when gun shows stop holding their events in gun free zones, even more hypocrisy will be eliminated.

    I did not check Reeds site. However, several of the Harrisburg TV stations and local papers have reported that Cabela's has boycotted. The link ESOS Boycott Supporters | My Northeast Outdoors I included in box one indicates it was last updated at 11:41 AM today

    I'll continue to watch and update

    I've never been to that show so I don't know how many vendors there usually are but yeah, that was a long list of boycotters (is that a word?). This will surely put a hurting on the show and its promoters.

    List of vendors boycotting ESOS Boycott Supporters | My Northeast Outdoors was updated tonight at 7 PM. There are 181 with Bass Pro Shop being another major vendor to boycott.

    I sent e-mails to several of the companies thanking them for electing to boycott the event..

    I also checked their web site and checked the listing of exhibitors, it only lists a total of 269 new and featured. That's a far cry from 1200. Cabela's ad is no longer featured on the site.
