Due to the likely and unforeseen extension of the 2012 fishing season, beginning the week prior to the original opener and coinciding with the Ely Outdoor Expo, we have had several requests from exhibitors to be released from their contracts with the Ely Outdoor Expo.
Out of respect to our exhibitors and presenters and the added pressure this would put on their businesses, we have elected to postpone this inaugural outdoor sports event until 2013.
Many of these same exhibitors have already given their support and commitment for the Expo in 2013
Thank you to everyone who has shown such enthusiastic support for this promising new event.
We apologies for any inconvenience this change may have caused.
See you in 2013,Good fishing! -MJ
