The Show Must Go On: Rosemont to host the Chicago Outdoorsman Show

Over the past few months there has been talk back and forth about the fate of the outdoors show that is held ever winter at the Donald E. Stevens convention center.   Jim Sugarman had sold the original show after showing a downturn in attendance last year and it was unknown if there would be any show this year.  Well it looks as though there will be a show as the following press release confirms.

Show Dates:
January 26 -29, 2012
