The 47th Annual West Virginia Outdoor Sports Show is the biggest and best in the region! Come see the newest inventory in RV’s, Boats, & ATV’s! Explore the new outdoor adventure zones for travel destinations, golfing, fly fishing, Kayaking, Biking, and much more! The show will feature the Little General Catch N’ Release Trout pond offering families the “hands on” opportunity to catch and release a fish, turns are in 5 minute rounds, and offered during the entire duration of the show. Fishing is free to all participants. The pond will be filled with at least 250 lbs of trout fish between 8 – 10” in size varying from 1-4 lbs. The Wild Wonderful WV will have representation at the show featuring the mountain bests, things to explore in WV, places to stay and events. Attendees will have the opportunity to win a weekend stay at a WV State park. Attendees may get a hands on experience with Disc Golf in our upper lobby and meet three-time world champion Johnny Sias. Participate in the safe combat sport of Archery Tag. Game play is similar to that of dodgeball, but it is done with a recurve bow and patented foam-tipped arrows. GOTCHA! Archery Games will provide fun for the whole family! Register to win a 2016 Bridge Day High Line Adventure at the show! The High Line is from the New River Gorge Bridge’s catwalk to State Route 82, dropping 300 vertical feet while sliding 600-700’.
