What were the scheduled dates for the Toronto Show? I want to write the hotel chain and explain the them why I will not be attending or staying with them.


http://www.africanhuntingevents.ca


FYI: The events have found new venues in the cities where the hotels bailed.

By the way, thanks for doing that.




ANYONE WANTS THE NEW VENUE ADDRESSES,
PM ME AND I'LL PROVIDE THEM.


"Important show updates
Due to some disruptions in our plans for the Africa Show in Toronto and Saskatoon we have been forced to change venues for these two events. Below you will find updated information regarding our new locations. There have been no changes to our events in Calgary and Orlando. We look forward to seeing you at one of the Africa Shows next year, and be sure to bring all of your buddies."


Making sure that you can contact the promoter is easily:

And write to OFAH and suggest they are AWOL on this! I still have not received a reply from the people I was referred to there. :mad:

OFAH has sent the attached letters. I like their letter to the Holiday Inn(y).

Not sure if this was posted somewhere else - if so, apologies.

But it's happened again - this came from SCI not long ago:

CANADA NEEDS YOUR HELP

Hunting is under direct attack and we need your help now. Today the African hunting events show was asked to leave the venue as they were setting up.

The Borgata banquet facility waited until the African Hunting events show was setting up to kick them out of the venue, citing that they feared for the safety of their property.

The event coordinator offered to hire off-duty police for security to no avail.

We need your help to let these people know that we are hunters and we, too, have rights.

We need you to send an email to them, go to their website and call to let them know we are not taking this lightly.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Their website is: www.borgata.ca.

Call: 905-760-1548

Their address is:
Borgata Wedding and event venue
8400 Jane St.
Vaughan Ont
L4k 4l8

Meanwhile, the event has located an alternative venue. It is:

Premier Place
696 Westburne Drive
Vaughan, Ontario
L4K 4V5
Telephone: 905 879 0172. Their website is: www.premierplacebanquethallwedding.com.


At some point someone has to take legal action against these hotels, or the contracts people enter into with them aren't worth anything.

This is getting way out of hand. In fact, this has become terrorism. If the hotel fears for its safety or property, this has gone too far, and the police need to get involved.

This is what I sent:
As a hunter, I deplore your last minute cancellation of the African Events Show. In no way can this despicable act of cowardice be condoned on any level. You had a contract, and you have broken it. I would not ever recommend or use your facility for any event. Borgata Wedding/Event Venue is unreliable and a contract with Borgata Wedding/Event Venue is only worth lining the bottom of a bird cage.

Terrorism, plain and simple.

Now it is time to start a lawsuit and get the damages and make the venue understand the concept of breach of contract.

We were on our way to Toronto to check out the show when we saw the latest venue change. This has gotten way out of hand and the police need to get involved. We are heading over in the am to show our support at the show!

We just went through the protestors ! My son was very brave! Pointed out all the leather and fur on their clothes lol the protestors are allowed to hold you up for 2 minutes. He video recorded the scene and we were held up 2:30 minutes and then they let us in. Come on down!

Good job by you and your son for getting out to see and support the show. Wish I was there to see the hypocrites!

On what basis would the protestors be "allowed to hold you up for 2 minutes"? Where does this happen? How would they be able to tell who are hunters or not? If this is indiscriminate holding up, then could the venue not argue loss of commerce? If it is on private property, the venue should be able to have them removed. If they are protesting on public property, in Alberta, they can't obstruct or hold up traffic, certainly not for 2 minutes.
I believe they are entitled to express their mis- guided beliefs, but there are rules to be followed!

If they impede you or block your way I would tell them you considered their actions forceable confinement and assault and if they didn't move you would be forced to defend yourself. They are cowards and would quickly move

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.

G'Day,
Long time no talk. I had a bad accident and was discharged from the hospital last Thursday after a three month stay. Am home now and all is well. So glad to be back. Missed you all on this board. Hope all is well with you. Killed a nice Mule deer last October and used the stainless Buffalo Skinner that worked to perfection and love the wood.
Regards, Mike in California.
