“We think this is the biggest and best outdoor in the region,” said Anna Campbell, communications director for the Civic Center.  “Come see the newest inventory in  RV’s, Boats, & ATV’s at the show. Explore the new outdoor adventure zones for travel destinations, golfing, fly fishing, kayaking, biking, and much more.”

Hours are as follows: Feb. 12, 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Feb. 13, 10 a.m. to  9 p.m.; and Feb. 14, noon until 5 p.m. The cost of admission is$7 per person, with children 12 and under free. The Civic Center is also hosting a Valentine’s Day Buffet for attendees.

The Outdoors Sports show will also feature the Little General Catch N’ Release Trout pond offering families the “hands on” opportunity to catch and release a fish, turns are in five 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 rainbow trout fish between 8-10” in size varying from 1-4 lbs.

• Attendees may get a hands on experience with Disc Golf in our upper lobby and meet three-time world champion Johnny Sias.

• The Wild Wonderful WV will have representation at the show featuring the mountain bests, things to explore in W.Va., places to stay and events. Attendees will have the opportunity to win a weekend stay at a W.Va. State park.

Campbell said there is a lot to do during the visit.  “Participate in a safe combat sport of Archery Tag.  Gotcha! Archery Games are similar to that of dodgeball, but it is done with a recurve bow and patented foam-tipped arrow.  It’s fun for the whole family,” she said.

Attendees can also 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 feet.
