Well another very successful Honeywell Sportsmen’s Days!
I want to thank all of the clubs and volunteers that made this event happen - truly a grand celebration of National Hunting and Fishing Day!
This year more than ever - even more children, eager to learn and participate came to the event.
I heard some wonderful comments from club members that were at the event -
- We do this every year; it is our way of giving back to the sport.
- One way to show the public who sportsmen are and what the outdoor sports are about.
- We do it for the kids, the future generation of sportsmen.
We made a positive impact on the Central New York Community – giving them a chance to experience and learn about hunting, fishing, archery, shooting and trapping. We had new exhibitors there along with sporting clubs, filling our large exhibit tent. Legislators that came to the event or read about it in the paper saw the large number of people that are interested in the outdoor sports. It was a great opportunity to speak to them one-on-one.
Those who helped make this a successful event, give yourselves a pat on the back for a job well done. You showed that you are passionate and care about your sports.
Next year’s Sportsmen’s Days is scheduled for September 27 and 28, 2014. Mark your calendars – EVERYONE is welcome to participate. See you there!
A very special thanks to Honeywell for their continued support. They did a great report on the event which can be found at the bottom of this email.
