Hello.

We are currently inundated with requests to try out our demo NV units, and without a word of a lie the units are out every week and we are constantly asked if we would consider a demo evening of sorts. So it has got us thinking of something on a grander scale....

As we were unable to make the Stalking Fair in Kelso we now plan on running The Scott Country Demo Weekend, which will be a two day demo weekend/exhibition at a country house, in a central UK location, which will be hosted by ourselves, along with Ridgeline UK, Thomas Jacks, Trailcameras.co.uk and promoted and covered by a top UK shooting magazine.

This will be a free entry weekend, which will have its own bar, and buffet/BBQ.

The venue is still to be confirmed but the proposed site has major motorway road links as well as a main train line access.

Tickets will be free from Scott Country or entry at the door (if spaces remain), and the event will feature the following:

(Numbers MAY have to be limited to be decided depending on venue number allowance, so we may allocated a hundred or so invites to the forum, as well as our regular mailing customer list)

Night Vision Demo Tunnel - try out the latest nv kit in our bespoke night vision tunnel.

Clothing from Ridgeline - try all the new 2013/2014 clothing ranges and speak to a member of the Ridgeline team.

Scott Country Stand - come along and see all our latest range of Harkila, Ridgeline clothing, footwear and accessories as well as our range of NV kit, hunting accessories, optics and kit and pick up a copy of our first ever mail order catalogue.

Thermal Imager demos - try the latest thermal kit outside in a controlled area with hidden targets in the country house gardens.

Pulsar/Cobra/Yukon Night Vision Stand - featuring the latest Night Vision kit and manned by a member of the team from UK distributor Thomas Jacks.

Trailcameras.co.uk Stand - online trail cam review and test site will be there demoing the latest trail cameras from Spypoint.

Expert Guest Speakers: Experts in their field will provide presentations on various aspects of country pursuits from NV to Stalking and Fox Control as well as wildlife conservation and protection.

Competition Prizes: Lots of things to win in our raffle!

Stalking Directory Stand: We have spoken to the Stalking Directory
regarding having a stand also, and JayB is confirming when we have a venue and date sorted.

So the reason for my post is to see what peoples thoughts are on the event, and if indeed you believe it would be something you would like to attend.

At present the dates we are proposing is Sat 7th and Sun 8th September.

It is totally free to attend, and we would love to meet everyone there.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Best Regards

Paul Stewart

Hi Patrick,

We do not sell second hand equipment, however we do occaisionally sell off ex demo units etc.

We will however be doing special deals and offers where we can, so drop us an email if there is something in particular you are looking for.

My colleague is meeting with the venue today to finalise, and we will post accordingly when the event is arranged, however for now if anyone has any input, good or bad we would love to hear from you.

The opinion from this forum will be one of the deciding factors in whether we go ahead or not.

The idea of having all the latest kit from budget NV to top spec Gen 3 devices as well as industry experts and lots of the new kit on display in one place is very appealing.

A lot of retailers/distributors get a lot of flack on here (sometimes deserved) so it's good to see someone put themselves about at no little cost I suspect to promote not only their sales but goodwill as well.
Well done SC

It is an expensive marketing exercise I agree, however if it lets customers try the latest kit, have a good day out, and in turn brings us business in the future, then that is what its all about.

We have almost confirmed the event as going ahead, and as the event is free entry, we will be sorting out a VIP ticket price should visitors wish to have food and beverages/ soft drinks included.

The plan is to have a BBQ in a marquee outside with guest speaker at lunch on both days.
