There are less than four weeks until the opening of the 2015 Outdoor and Rec Sports Show!

The Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce (GOACC)  is hosting the show at the Good Times of Olean Events Center, on Saturday, Jan. 17, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 18, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

As more individuals and families travel shorter distances from home and take shorter vacations or mini-vacations, the Outdoor and Rec Sports Show will provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities close to home.   Exhibits will include camping, paddle sports, hiking, cycling, all-terrain vehicles, hunting, snow and water-skiing, snowmobiling, bird watching, fishing, and more.

Thirty-six vendors have signed up to date, including entertainment by The Call Outdoors, who will include many tips, from scouting to harvesting, Country Squirrel Outfitters, who will bring kayaks, bicycles, hiking supplies, snowshoes and cross country skis, as well as hunting accessories, and Leisure Time Powersports, the show’s official snowmobile vendor.

Colonial Media & Entertainment will be on hand, featuring their air personalities as announcers for the seminars and demos scheduled throughout both days.

The GOACC is also hosting a raffle during the show, with a chance to win a variety of items supplied by Ron’s Gun Shop, CUTCO Cutlery Corp., Ka-Bar Knives and Country Squirrel Outfitters.

Tickets are $5 each or five for $20 with a limit of 500 tickets.  The drawing will be held on Jan. 18.

Admission to the show is $3 for adults and $2 for students and seniors. Children 12 and under are free with an adult.

Whether coming off the big game season, enjoying winter sports, gearing up for spring fishing or looking to spend a fun day with family, everyone will enjoy the sixth annual Greater Olean Area Outdoor and Rec Sports Show, which brings the whole of great outdoors under one roof.

Ten booth spaces still remain open for the show.  For more information on the GOACC Outdoor and Rec Sports Show or other GOACC events and activities, please call GOACC at (716) 372-4433 or email
