Member Recognition Award: Nat Love: Nat’s Outdoor Sports

Also honored during the festivities was Hope Buttitta, Operations Manager for Grassroots Outdoor Alliance for her dedication and service to all G.O.A. members, vendor partners, sales reps and company partners.

It was a great three day show that hosted 29 vendor partners, 3 Value Added Business Partners, 34 Grassroots Outdoor Alliance Members, Conrad Anker with The Conservation Alliance and Michael Hodgson with SNEWS. With over 200 participants, this was a great way to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance Early Show.

We'd like to thank everyone for attending and making it a successful venue. We look forward to seeing you next year in Snowbird on June 12 – 15, 2010.
