Enjoy Exciting Family Activities at the NWTF Convention
Is your family passionate about hunting and the outdoors?
EDGEFIELD, S.C. –-(Ammoland.com)- If so, the National Wild Turkey Federation’s 35th annual National Convention and Sport Show is the ultimate place for your family to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle before spring hunting season!
To highlight the importance of passing on our outdoor traditions to the next generation, the theme of this year’s NWTF convention is “Our Youth. Our Legacy.”
The convention, which will take place Feb. 18 to Feb. 20 in Nashville at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, is one of the largest gatherings of hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts in North America. More than 40,000 people, including many families, are expected to attend.
The three-day event, sponsored by MidwayUSA, features a giant sport show that is larger than four football fields and loaded with the latest hunting and outdoor gear!
Families who attend will find no shortage of activities for people of all ages, starting with “The Roost,” the center for families in the sport show exhibit hall. Youth can try archery, air guns, casting and fishing, and even watch presentations with live animals. By completing a variety of conservation education activities, each child can earn a collectible patch. Smokey Bear and Jake, the NWTF’s mascot, will be available for photos and high-fives.
A general admission pass is all that’s required to access the sport show, “The Roost,” the Grand National Turkey Calling Championships and seminars taught by professional hunters and land managers.
For the first time, NWTF members and active-duty military personnel will receive a free general admission pass. Remember to bring your NWTF membership card or military I.D. for easy admission.
Non-members may join the NWTF for just $30 and get a three-day general admission pass and subscription to the NWTF’s Turkey Country magazine. A three-day pass and JAKES membership costs just $10 for youth ages 11 to 17. Children ages 10 and under are free.
