With Thanksgiving just a few short days away and still plenty of preparation ahead, I thought I would get a quick blog entry done. The fall season here has been busy with a steady stream of contractors in to complete the damage done to our home during the storms of summer. We are so happy to have everything completely done!
We have also been diligently working on our annual Christmas letter in order to get those out to you in early December. With our mailing list growing as much as it has through the years, the printing, folding, stuffing, sealing, labeling and stamping the letters is really quite a production around here!
I have also been very fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend some time in the woods during deer season. For many years I have wanted to bow hunt and this year I FINALLY made the purchase and started. Practicing with the bow gave me another good reason (besides raking leaves) to get outside and also to spend some quality time with Allison who has taken a budding interest in archery also.
Some news on the sport show front that you may not be aware of is that the All-Canada show has been sold, after declaring bankruptcy, to a couple of the guys that were previously affiliated with All-Canada. We think that ultimately the change will be good for the show as new marketing ideas are implemented and ways to improve the show come to light. In the short-term, there will be some growing pains as evidenced by the reduction in markets the show will be in this year. In fact, the Chicago All-Canada show will be the only show on the All-Canada circuit. As a result, we have supplemented our former All-Canada show schedule by replacing those shows with other shows that we have worked before and enjoyed like the Madison Fishing Expo and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Sportshow. Dates and locations are available on our website at www.peffleyscamp.com
We wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends and hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday!
