The SCC show was overloaded with boats and RV's and even less tackle shops etc than the Coliseum Show. The shows on Long Island are loaded with charter captains for saltwater because it has always had a saltwater/hunting slant to it...just as Rockland has a freshwater/hunting slant to it and they all have their share of slice and dice booths as well.Bass Rat said:The one at SCC last year was just as good as the collosium show. The Nassau show seemed to be cluttered with charter trips and Hunting guides.
Rich, Are you saying this show got canned because of parking fees?
YOU CAN IF YOU KNOW LEIGH!! WOO HOOO!!thefishingline said:you can’t expect free admission to anything anymore...can you?
Rich, I think your missing the point (respectively). I don't think guys give 2 S$&TS about the 20 or 30 bucks. Bottom line the show sucked. Your talking about people who would drop 2-3 hundred on a rod in a heartbeat. If the show was good the $ would not be an issue. If the show is FREE and still sucked I still wouldn't go. ahhhhhh, I probably would go even if it was 20 bucks and sucked. But I'm like that. LOLYou are missing the point.... what I am saying is...folks say a show is no good because of parking and the entrance fee and then walk in...in a bad mood.
They seem to find Rocklans, suffrin & RaritanMost manufactures are located in rural areas, mostly in the Bible and sunbelts…below the Mason Dixon line…and focus large, large portions of their budgets for ads and shows everywhere but in the northeast!
I don't blame promotors for the fees. I blame them cause the show suckedPeople seem to blame promoters OF ANY SHOW for things they cannot control...PARKING!!!! You pay $7 to park and $12 to walk in the door...you're already in a bad mood...again not any promoter's fault...you can’t expect free admission to anything anymore...can you?
Yes. Yes. And yes. And yes, that's the promotors job to get them here.So????? What makes a show good? Manufacturers? Tackle shops??? Boats??? Electronics??
What does that mean in terms of the show sucking?Let’s say for example…the union did a great job with the move in and out one year with 22 workers. Well the following year they tell a promoter they need 29 men to do the same job 22 men did the year before. If the promoter doesn’t cave…the Union is not happy and people move slower…things take longer to get done etc., etc., etc.. It takes a lot of negotiatiing to get this done
