Okay, a quick update. The tailgate fee will be $5 per 10ft area, each additional spot $5. This if for the entire weekend, not per day charge.

Camper hook up (elec/ water) (10) spots are available, the charge is $10 per nite (there is a drop box to put you fee in).
Tent camping is free.

Demo's are almost full, watch for a full line up soon. Look for a great line up of demo's.

Still have room for more vendors, I would like to see Craft's, Taxidermist, Gun Dealers, and more Trapping supply's.
The fee for inside space is $15 per table. Reserve now to be advertised the final flyer.

Things are coming together quickly. looking forward to a great show..Wynn
