Richmond, Virginia - Goochland County Virginia Prepper Show
SUBJECT: This is an “Information Sheet” about the “prepper’s cookout” in Goochland County, Virginia from Wednesday June 23 to Friday June 25.
The location, called “Groundhog Flats”, is part of what used to be a large pig and dairy farm started at the turn of the century and into the 1900s. The property consists of the main farmhouse on 3 cleared acres, with 14 shed type outbuildings, two rows of what used to be chicken and pig stalls, a pump house building (no longer used) and a smokehouse where the pigs were hung. The farmhouse was built in 1896 and its heating system is still 3 fireplaces. A property manager does live on-site, but no one is currently living in the farmhouse while it is undergoing a (slow) restoration.
Legend has it (as told by a longtime family living in the area for ages), that a large oak tree…. still standing near the house …. was the site of a Confederate camp during the Civil War. This was one outpost of sites defending the City of Richmond, 20 miles away. If true, one of the campfires at this June’s event can be celebrated as the renewal of a Confederate campfire some 150 years ago.
The location is ideal for our group because it is “out of the way”, many woods and farm fields, and you can do pretty much whatever you want without being disturbed.
What to expect……
Otherwise, in addition to the educational aspects, this will be a great gathering place of like-minded people enjoying casual time outdoors. The discussions in such a relaxed and casual environment often lead to things that we can pursue and exchange thoughts on well after this is over and we are back in our home territory.

WE ARE STILL ACCEPTING EXHIBITORS!
Why vendors should come:
This event will attract a focused group of "preppers", "survivalists", outdoorsmen, campers, people that like to be self sufficient. Highly educated and involved in this activity, the attendees are all in this one place, perfect to inform and sell and promote your business in the most efficient way.
Our expected attendance:
50. But the registered attendees seems to be growing as we get closer to the event. People are coming from Japan, Tennessee, Colorado and Massachusetts, as well as from Virginia.....so far. A number of experts are speaking on relevant topics and that appears to be a big draw.
Here's how we plan on getting the right people in the door:
The background of all who apply to attend is scrutinized and only those approved to attend are issued admission passes. No walk-ons, no strangers allowed. This is a select group.
Our experience with shows:
Lots of convention work, booths set up, speaker to groups, hands-on trainer in engineering skills, both in U.S. and abroad.
