Winter gives way to sports show season

Notes from the North Woods

The Schroon Lake event which is organized by representatives from the local community, churches and businesses strives to provide Adirondack outdoorsmen, and women an opportunity “to enjoy a day of fellowship centered on good food, practical seminars and a featured speaker who present the wonders of nature from a Christian prospective.”

In addition to a wide selection of seminars, the Adirondack Sportsmans Dinner incorporates a fine collection of exhibitors at the Sportsman’s Expo, which always includes the Salerno Brothers, Wall of Racks.

Tickets for the annual event typically sell out within minutes of going for sale. Information is available online at www.sportsmensdinner.com

Adirondack Outdoorsman Show

The 8th Annual Adirondack Outdoorsman Show which has been hosted annually at the Johnstown Moose Club since 2006, is likely the most traditional of all the North Country sportsmans events.

This year’s event will run from Saturday, February16 through Sunday February 17 from 10am to 5pm. The program follows a traditional sportsman show template, which leans heavily towards hunting, fishing and outdoor travel.

Exhibitors will be displaying a wide range of modern and traditional outdoor gear and camping supplies, as well as archery equipment, trapping supplies, boats and canoes, camping and hiking gear, guides and charter services, taxidermy art, collectable knives, antique outdoor gear, wildlife art and rustic furniture.

Among the many featured guests, and authors in attendance will be Adirondack Historian and Author Don Williams, who will be signing copies of his newest book; “Adirondack People and Places”. The second featured guest will be the Northern Sasquatch Research Society and Brian Gosselin. Gosselin is the Whitehall NY Police Officer who had a 1976 encounter with a “Sasquatch-Like creature”.
