The 10th Annual Show Went On!

The 10th Annual Greater Olean Area Outdoor & Rec Sports Show was held this weekend although the area received a foot and more of snow Saturday evening/Sunday.   Normal attendance for the two day show is around 1,800 – however the 10th edition had 1/3 of that normal total – 650 visitors.  

Meme K. Yanetsko, GOACC COO stated, “In my more than 25 years of service to GOACC, I have never had weather affect any of our events this drastically.  Yes, we had torrential rainstorms for the clambake as well as snow/cold weather for the home show, but attendance was only affected slightly.”

The sports show welcomed more than 34 vendors, however when the show opened Saturday, vendors were down to 30, with a few more not available Sunday.  “Most show vendors were set up Friday, so we went on with the show for the weekend.  We did reduce show admission fee to $1 for all as we didn’t have the advertised vendors in attendance.  We also are working with show vendors and offering them comparable space at our April Home Show,” added Mrs. Yanetsko.
