It's coming up....that means hunting season is coming soon too! I can't wait for this year's Game Fair. Some new stuff going on it looks like along with the usual favorites.

Who all is going this August 7-9 and 14-16?

I have never gone down but will probably go down a day this year sounds like a lot of fun. Is there a certain day that is normally better than others with events or something. How about the number of people does the second weekend have less.

It's all about the weather. If you want to avoid crowds, then come when (if) it's chilly and/or rainy and/or threatening. That said, Friday mornings tend to be a good time....but it can be crowded then too.

As far as "what day is best" pretty much everyday is a good one. They work to make sure that everyday is chock full of things to do and see.

I've been told there are little changes now that most of the calling comps will be the 2nd weekend of Game Fair...the first weekend will have women, youngsters and 2 man goose/duck comps. So if you wanted to watch the comps, go the 2nd weekend on Saturday.

Go any day, they're all good...for me it would be Saturday because of calling comps. I'll be there with the Death Row Calls guys.
