Im getting confirmation on some of the people who will be attending the shoots and taking part in the show.
From AMS Bowfishing Jeff, Cindy, Matt & I think Trish will be attending, Connie and Kevin Sullivan from Innerloc will be here, and I just got an email from one of the true bowfishing pioneers, Ron Skirvin, owner of shureshot points will be here.
Im actually very happy to see Ron coming down. For you younger guys (just about everyone other than me) there were a few guys who really brought attention to the sport back in the 70s, long before the internet. Fred Bear was one, Wilbur Corley was a guy who started the first mail order bowfishng supply company, Corley`s Bowfishing Stuff. Lance bought the company and it became Sully`s bowfishing stuff and then backwater.
Rob Davis was another. He pioneered stingray and shark bowfishing out in maryland. Had numerousmagazine articles and really rought alot of interest to salt water bowfishing.
And Ron Skirvin was always in articles promoting bowfishing here in the midwest. I remember reading all these. Like I said, before the internet there was very little info on bowfishing out there. Bowhunting magazines would put articles in in the summer months, and these guys are who you heard about.
Anyway, there are going to be some great guests here for you guys to meet. That includes the history lesson.
