What started as a comment has grown into a full on debate and just goes to show how passionate everyone is about the demise of Game fairs.
After putting a picture on Facebook of the latest game fair at Ragley Hall with the comment:
“Is it the weather that keeps people away? … so so sad to see fishing village more like ghost village” my phone would not stop beeping as comment after comment started to appear on this post. Many people expressing their views and more importantly what they thought was wrong with the current shows along with ideas, both as customers or as an exhibitor what they would like to see.
With so much attention I have now been invited to meet with the organisers of the shows to discuss both my views and also a collective views of ALL OF YOU.
Therefore we have the perfect opportunity to collect EVERYONES ideas, which I will collate and present to the show organisers, it will then be up to them if they wish to listen. I am sure they will otherwise it is not going to be long before someone says enough is enough and fishing leaves these shows for good to have their own dedicated show, which personally I think would be a great shame. Fishing is very much apart of country sports and country way of life therefore it should be well and fairly represented at these types of shows.
Please take this opportunity to both share this to EVERYONE you know and add your constructive comments / ideas below.
