September Gunshow Cancelled!
ARPC Gun Show
P.O. Box 727
Albany, OR 97321


July 29, 2010

Valued ARPC Gun Show Vendors,

It is with great regret we are canceling the September 25th and 26th, 2010 ARPC Gun Show. We will resume ARPC Gun Shows starting March 5th and 6th, 2011.

This week it came to our attention that trough a number of errors, the booking of the Linn County Expo Center for the ARPC Gun Show was moved from our show date to an earlier date. The Expo Center then booked our facility to another show on our dates making the facility unavailable for the show. It was impractical to move the show to the new date, so we sought an alternative venue. The only facility available to house the show on our dates was a horse arena on the fair grounds. We inspected the facility. It had a dirt floor, no air handling, poor lighting, and was a smaller venue. In short, it was dark, dirty, and smelled of horses. Certainly not the type of show environment you, our vendors, and your customers deserve. We considered a number of options, none of them good, and came to the conclusion it would be better to cancel the show than put on a poor show in an unacceptable environment.

A refund check will be sent shortly to everyone who has paid for tables. The fairgrounds are providing us a 5 year schedule of show dates to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

We are sorry for any inconvenience we have caused. Please accept our apology and we hope to see you in March. If you have any questions please contact Mike at the ARPC Office at 541-691-0038 or Email office@arpc.info.

Sincerely,

ARPC Gun Show Committee

I can't imagine it will even come close to the ARPC event, but it s better than nothing....

See ya at the shows....


The expo center only has a remodel show scheduled that weekend and Collectors west does not have a Albany event on their schedule the same weekend. If CW is going to have a show, they are behind in the advertising.

Strange..

CW shows can't hold a candle to ARPC shows.
