Upwards of 2,000 outdoors enthusiasts attended Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce’s ninth-annual Greater Olean Area Outdoor & Rec Sports Show held this weekend at Good Times of Olean’s Events Center. The show featured 39 vendors, all specializing in different ways to enjoy the outdoors, from kayaking and hiking to hunting and fishing.
The winners of the Greater Olean Area Outdoor and Recreation Sports Show were
GRAND PRIZE: Wicked Ridge Invader Crossbow Tom Barie of Olean; 2nd Prize: Hitachi Alpha LED 40” TV, Tom Bailfer of Olean; additional prizes — CSO Tubbs Xplore Snowshoe Starter, Brian Graham Jr.; CSO Primus Profile Camp Stove, Hannah Woodring of Olean; Kabar Becker Crewman, James Rowe of Portville; Cutco Gut Hook, Mike Ryan; and Kabar USMC knife Bob Moser of Olean.
For many of the show’s vendors, the weekend-long event allowed plenty of opportunities to connect with new customers.
“The show was really great for us, we did a lot of good sales and kept really busy,” said Gordon Fox, owner of Foxy’s Knives. “While we saw (customers) we’ve seen at other shows, we were able to meet a lot of good people.”
Michael Guerin, Chairman of the Cattaraugus County arm of S.C.O.P.E. agreed. “There was a great turnout of people,” Guerin said. “I liked that we were able to talk to a lot of like-minded people and it was great to connect with them.”
Next up for the Chamber, the Home Show is set for April 13-15. For more information on the Greater Olean Area Outdoor & Rec Sports Show or other Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce events and activities, call (716) 372-4433 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
