I wonder if somebody from Countrymans fair has been reading the threads on here about the Midland because yesterday I had a feed back questionairre from them. First time ever and I have previously purchased tickets on line.
Best part was the survey monkey link would not open so I had to copy and paste to open it.
Anyway completed it, not a very well thought out survey,
In essence its lost its way and needs to revert to its core. Fishing area is very poor, air gun expo appears to be going downhill and very major companies no longer have stands. If you wanted to look at high range optics then virtually nothing this year. If you want cheap tack and rubbish then plenty to be found.
No Brock and Norris, Riflecraft (Vortex optics) John Knibbs, Ladds, the list is endless Appears stands too expensive, extremly poor mobile coverage and traders having difficult processing card payements. From what I heard lots of long term traders are going to chuck in the towel and go to the shooting show and better still Newark.
