The Logan County Chamber of Commerce invites you to the 2013 Chief Logan Hunting and Fishing Expo on Saturday, August 24, and Sunday, August 25, 2013, at the Chief Logan Conference Center in Logan, West Virginia.
Headlining the Expo are Ron and Amy Shirley of Lizard Lick Towing and Recovery Company. In addition to their hit reality TV show, the couple is avid outdoorsmen and hunters and members of the celebrity Bowtech team. Ron and Amy will be in attendance on Saturday and Sunday to greet fans, and there is no additional fee to meet the pair.
The Chamber of Commerce is proud to welcome back Frank Addington, Jr., “The Aspirin Buster” as a featured presenter. Addington has been demonstrating his bow and arrow skills to audiences for more than two decades.
