    Drama with the CCFR again on facebook (Shotshow Contest GONE!!)

    I noticed on the GOC facebook group, that someone called out they removed their shotshow contest.

    Seems he pointed out they didn't have access for anyone to win and they kicked him in the butt for saying anything.

    But now the contest is gone and he is going haywire (not the mod).

    Anyone seen this or know anything about it?

    I looked around I couldn't find the contest, anyone else have that trouble or just me?

    It's funny, I saw the contest originally, and forgot about it until today as I had meant to enter. Now it's gone, I asked about it on the CCFR FB group, and my question was deleted without comment. I started looking for info on it and found my way here.


    Edit: Oh here we go

    Sounds like it's beyond their control, whatever the issue is. Oh well, that's life, let's move on. Someone on Fussbook always has a nit to pick

    People seem to have an issue more with how it's being handle than the contest itself being cancelled.
    I have some funny comparisons in my head, but I best not throw any mud

    I blame Trudeau.

    SHOT is for people who are in the industry in one form or the other. "Consumers" aren't really allowed. You have to apply under your company name, and they have to review and accept your request to attend. It's not something they want as a prize in a contest.

    I imagine it only makes it better if you’re trying to make money off thr contest.

    Wow, I didn't know that. I always half thought about taking a trip down to see it but that's a bit of an extra hurdle.

    Years ago I also thought about going and then read it was for vendors and distributors and such. So this comes as no surprise.

    I never even heard of the contest and I'm a member.
