Here is a list of celebrities, sponsors, and vendors who have pulled out of the Reed Exhibits Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show in Harrisburg, PA for 2013. The show was set to run from Feb 2-10, 2013 and usually attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors.
Please Also Remember Going Live on Feb 2nd The Start of The Eastern Sports and Outdoors Show My Northeast classifieds www.MyNortheastClassifieds.com will go live to the public. We will be providing any vendor who has pulled out of the show a FREE centrally located marketplace to sell their items, products, services, etc. Supporting members of the public will have the confidence that ONLY vendors and items listed in this market place will be by approved vendors. This is a great way for you to help support those vendors who stood up for our rights, and many who have lost thousands of dollars by pulling out will depend on this income to help defray their costs.
PLEASE BE PATIENT THIS LIST HAS GROWN TREMENDOUSLY We will continue to process vendors, speakers, etc as they are entered into out our spreadsheet Look for a complete list by end of the day today Thanks !
This however will not be the case this year as they have made an announcement that they will not support our Second Amendment Rights as Hunters, Shooting Sports Enthusiasts, Gun Owner, and AMERICANS ! We at MyNortheastOutdoors.com decided it was time to take a stand, and have enjoyed the support of the following businesses and entities listed below.
We will continue to update this list (Last Updated: 23 Jan 2013 @ 12:13pm)

More are being added all the time, this latest number was as of 12:13 Eastern time today, 23 January, 2013
How many total vendors, and what percentage (revenue wise) of the total has pulled out?
Trying to see the impact on the show.....
(Hope they have to give it up this year)
Their dumb decision has really come back to bite this “low information” exhibit company in the butt. I couldn’t be happier.
I do not know the pecentage of revenue.
Add Crimson Trace to the list...
1200 vendors @ $7000 minimum for a table = $8.4 million
250,000 visitors @ $14 per head = $3.5 million
The vendors have already paid their money and wont get it back, but the visitors will stay away in droves. Next year, how many vendors will be dumb enough to fork out another $7000? This show is finished.
And the winner of the 2013 Jim Zumbo Award is....
Sounds like the Limey’s are going to really take a bath.
That is arguable in court. The show changed the rules after the money was paid. The vendors who have pulled out for this reason have a reasonable law suit to get a refund and possible damages due to loss of expected benefits from the show. Their contract with the show company has been voided by the show prior to performance of their part of the contract.
Add Mossberg to the list.
