Continuing the Campaign to Save Hunting Camps: PRFA Will Exhibit at the NEACA Arms Fair at Saratoga City Center on August 28 & 29, 2010
Join the men and women having a great time at the NEACA Arms Fair and Militaria Expositions. The Property Rights Foundation of America will be exhibiting again at the NEACA fair at the Saratoga City Center on Friday and Saturday August 28 (9 am - 5 pm) and 29 (9 am - 3 pm). Come see our exhibit on saving the hunting camps in the Adirondack forest and on the battle with the DEC to maintain access to the land for hunters, snowmobilers, and all sportsmen and women.
In addition, members will have a special preview on Friday, August 27 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. (Membership in NEACA is $50.00 for twelve months and gives free admission to all events.)
The day's admission is $8.00, senior citizen $7.00, under 14 free with adult. PRFA's display features original photos and publications about the threat that land acquisition poses to hunting access and the existence of hunting camps on leases in the historic Adirondack timberlands and the practical effort we are making to counter the threat.
Available for the first time to the public will be PRFA's new publication GRASSROOTS SPEAKERS documenting efforts to defy state acquisition of land, take back roads from the forest preserve and open up land to disables people, plus the original reasons presented to the New York State Legislature for the creation of the Adirondack Park and the purposeful depopulation of the Adirondacks perpetrated by the Adirondack Park Agency to fulfill the Champlain-Adirondack Biosphere Reserve.
We'll also be distributing copies of our popular "Winter 2010" issue of the New York Property Rights Clearinghouse with the cover story on how 220 hunting camps on the conservation easement lands of the former Champion International tracts in Franklin, St. Lawrence and Lewis Counties are being saved ten years after our lawsuit set off a campaign to protect the Champion camps that the state had doomed. Everyone who comes to our display will receive a free sample of our popular new full-color postcard, Welcome to the Adirondack 'Park.'
