UK Game Fair

22-24 July 2016
NAEC Stoneleigh, Kenilworth, Warwickshire CV8 2LZ

What is it?

Delivered by the publishers of Gun Trade News, this fair says it is ‘designed to attract the core Game Fair following’. It certainly has much of the gun trade behind it, but will it deliver on other aspects of a national game fair?

England hat interessante game fairs, quasi in jeder Grafschaft. Die Schotten haben auch noch ihre game fairs. Da mache ich mich mal in der Gruppe "scottish shooters" mal schlau.
Die "Midland game" fair ist sicher interessant. Die Midland gun company war schon immer bekannt und gibt es bis heute.
Ein Besuch lohnt immer - für den Flinten fan und Liebhaber engl. und schottischer Tradition. Man denke nur an die Highland Games.
