Unified Sportsmen of Pennsylvania Event

2nd Annual WALTER & MARY’S
ICE FISHING DERBY

Cancelled

 

With the continue rise of temperature there is not much chance of safe ice forming and the game fish such as trout go out the first day of March. 

 

We are sorry but the ice fishing derby has been cancelled for this year.   Thank everyone for their interest in the event.

Tri-State Outdoor EXPO

USP decided to try the new Tri-State EXPO held at the David Lawrence Convention Center on January 29 - 31, 2016.   The Tri-State Outdoor Expo was much better Show for us than the Allegheny Sport Travel & Outdoor Show.   We had very good interest from those attending the show providing sports related information.

All those in attendance were upset with the PGC (Pennsylvania Game Commission) on their handling of our hunting interest as result we gained several renewals as well as new 1 year, 2 year, a lifetime, and a FOAC (Firearm Owners Against Crime) membership.

USP raffled off a Mossberg Tactical caliber 22 with 6 position adjustable stock. The winner was Chuck Girdwood, congratulations Mr. Girdwood.

USP thanks all those visiting our display.
