    Thank you for sharing. I can't wait to see what TenPoint has for 2013, besides the Omni noc.

    No. Not this year. But I will be floating around since it's right in my backyard.

    Little too far for me; when it gets to Charlotte, (4 1/2 hours...), I'll be there!

    UL...is there a listing anywhere of exhibitors? I went to the site and it gave a map of the hall. I was more interested in who's going to be there showing their 2013 stuff than the speakers!....Also who exactly is the "National Bowhunters Association"? I cannot find a website or anything about this organization.

    AHHHHH so here is the mad scientist scheme behind the new T-shirt release. I can see a Crossbow Nation flash mob forming, all wearing the new shirts and doing that "gettyup dance move".
    You should put out the call soon. Most of your members are older and will need time to practice the dance steps without breaking themselves.
    Just think, a sea of octogenarian's dancing in step and posted on You Tube. My estimate of several dozen hits is just the start. Once the grand children get a hold of it, it will go virile.
    On second thought, hire some cute girls in shorts and give them the shirts. they will work cheaper and you won't have to have paramedics standing by with oxygen.

    I'm actually not even going to be selling anything there. The shirts and the show are two different things.

    Just because you don't have a vested interest in the show doesn't mean you can't flood the show room floor with some Crossbow Nation signage.
    Especially if they are cute girls, with their small stature the shirts should cost less than the 4X shirts you would need for some of your web members

    I suspect Stan is the National Bowhunters Association. He started what became bowhunting version of the SHOT show and lost it due to some legal wrangling. Don't know but I imagine this is his return to the trade show business. By forming an association, he insulates himself from some legal iabilities, I guess.

    Be interesting to see how it works out competing with all the other shows that are up and running with good track records.

    Stan is the originator of the then, Bowhunting trade show. He paid the Archery Manufacturers Organization to use the name the AMO show. After many years of getting the show going, the AMO took the show and is now called the ATA show.

    If Stan were able to get Just 10,000 bow hunters at this show which is not a big number. It would be the biggest retail bow hunting show in the world.
    Harrisburg Pa's show is the biggest hunting show in the world. It is hunting, camping, hikeing, canoeing, boating, fishing, gun hunting etc.
    This show is just for bow hunting. If is not set up to be a family oriented show with all kinds of things for the wife and kids to do. It is to be for the serious archer who wants to shoot 20 different bows before buying one. Sit in a dozen different stands to figure out which is most comfortable for them.
    It will be the try it before you buy it event for archers.
    Just wish I could be there, but already booked another show.
