I'm just really sorry that this is going to have a huge economic impact on so many businesses and people in the mid-state area. I grew up only a few miles from the Farm Show Complex, and the impact that this show has in the area is substantial.

What has been nagging at me the whole time, though, is just who owns the show? As I understand it, the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs started it the better part of 50 years ago, but turned it over to professional management when it got to be too big.

Could Reed do something like this at SHOT show since they are the organizer?
