No castor gun show today
 
I had posted a few weeks ago that the castor gun show was this weekend (according to the town newsletter)
I just got back from the hall, and the lights are out, and no one is there.
Hopefully there's not anyone driving out for it.

Be interested to hear why it was cancelled as I saw no notice is wasn't happening either. If the weather was better I would have been on my way out there.

Guys that put these things on have a responsibility to keep people informed, not difficult in the electronic age. :confused:

Most gun shows were canceled last spring.
I haven't done a single show this year.

I wonder if maybe the town didn't know that and thought it was a go when it wasn't.

All the shows I do notify me well in advance when a show is pending.

I don't do that show but I know people who do. I could ask them if the were notified. My guess they were, last spring.

It normally goes on the start of June.
I was pretty excited to see it listed in the town newsletter. That is the only place I saw it posted, though.
Maybe they'll post the cancelation in next month's newsletter....

Turned out fine as I didn't go anyhow, so no big deal. To be honest, there is so much wrong information on so many things I would have called before heading out to verify it was a go. Would be a real pee off if you drove 2 hours each way for a cancelled show.

Edmonton gunshow is still on.

I sent an email last week to the organizer of the Edmonton gunshow. I know, it's actually in Stony Plain. He confirmed green light for Oct 24-25.

One of the regular vendors from BC also told me he was going to be there.

That would be almost as bad as an exhibitor setting up for a show and only one customer shows up.

The organizer of the Dawson Creek show told me that is what happened at the DC show this spring.

I had a table at that show and would have been there if it hadn't been for concerns about my heart.

BTW, it's a four hour drive one way, for me.
