Virtual boots on the ground!
Received this news via an email from Northeast Outdoors Media Company spokesman Tom McConnell:
We are reaching out to our fellow forum hosts and media outlets in an effort to raise awareness for the Virtual Sports Show we put together for the Vendors who have both sacrificed and lost so much over the cancellation of the Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show in Harrisburg, PA.Â Blog posts can be found at www.MyNEOD.com outlining the details of the boycott from start to present.
These vendors stood up for our 2nd Amendment rights and stood with us throughout the Boycott of the show, many risking sure financial ruin over their decision.Â The stood up for our 2nd Amendment rights, and now we are trying to show them support by purchasing items they stocked and planned on selling at the show.
MyNEOD.com set up the Virtual Sports Show as a thank you, and a last ditch effort and helping hand to get these guys out of a hole and standing back on firmer ground.
The Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show exhibitor, REED Exhibitions has agreed to refund their both costs, but many of them still had nonrefundable plane tickets, hotel rooms, an abundance of stock for sale at the show.
We are hoping that through your venue, you could help announce and promote this event and support these vendors.
Thanks for your helpâ€¦Â When you post this…Â please link to www.MyNEODClassifieds.com and send us a link email and your logo, we will be sure and add you to our site.
IN ADDITION TO MENTIONING THE SHOW â€“ A lot of people are still reporting that they are going to the show, and companies like Bass Pro shops in Harrisburg are getting more and more calls of show goers asking if they are still selling tickets and running shuttles for the show.Â We really also need to help raise awareness that the show is CANCELLED.
Thanks in advance for your helpâ€¦
