2017 Fair Partner's Shootout Wrap Up

Fair Partner's Shootout




Thanks to the support and cooperation of many people, including NICA, OABA, and the Florida Federation of Fairs, the 2 ND Annual Fair Partner’s Shootout was a great success! It was a beautiful Florida day with temperatures in the 70’s, sunshine, and a great day to be outdoors! With over 70 shooters and over 20 spectators and guests, the sky reverberated with the sound of over 3800 rounds of ammunition being shot at sporting clays that were coming from every angle and direction!

The concept for the Shootout started with the idea that there was a need for a networking event in February when so many of the Fair industry associations were in town for their national meetings. The Florida Federation of Fairs, NICA and OABA joined in with their support and help. All three organizations promoted the event through communication with their members.

A special thanks to Jeff and Kathy Ross with Ross Concessions who worked diligently on behalf of NICA to round up silent auction items, promote the event to potential shooters and sponsors, and assisted with all aspects of the event. As a result of Kathy’s promoting the event at the Pennsylvania Fair Association meeting, we were delighted to have three teams from the PA Showmen. Thanks also to Bob Johnson who rounded up the support of OABA and those that participated squeezed it into an already tight schedule of events for that week. The Florida Federation of Fairs was also well represented with numerous Fair teams. It was also a special treat to have Marla Calico, IAFE CEO and President, and Becky Brashear, IAFE Chairman to join us for the shootout!

It was an event that novice as well as experienced shooters enjoyed and an event that will definitely become a tradition in an effort to bring a great networking opportunity to the Fair industry partners.
