The shoot is getting pretty close and no sign of a vendor's list on George Hopkins' website or the Vintagers website. No ad in the latest Double Gun Journal and my latest Shooting Sportsman is locked away. What's going on? Does anyone know where I can access a vendor's list. I just emailed George and don't know whether to expect a reply.

Default Vintage Cup Vendors

Bill--there is a thread on DoubleGun BBS that lists all the vendors. Pretty much the usual list of suspects!

I believe the "list" you describe is the July 31, 2017 list with 15 names. Can that be the latest? I'm starting to like Ray more every day.

The list cited here shows that RST will be a vendor but a post on the Fox site states, in effect, that shell orders should be placed with RST beforehand and they will be brought to Hopkins. I'm not trying to read anything into this but in the past at other events, i.e., Carlisle etc., that meant that RST didn't set up and merely sent a staffer with shells that were preordered.

Perhaps Matt can get a read on this; will RST be set up at Hopkins with its tent and stocks of shells to sell as people come up to the tables?

Doesn't seem to be very many vendors compared to the Vintagers at Pintail Point

I placed an order with RST two weeks ago. When I spoke with Julie and Mr Baker they both said RST would be there as a vender. I think they are just taking orders to bring so folks don't have to pay shipping expenses.

BTW they were there is full force last year with the same set up they us at the Spring Southern. Again from my conversation I gathered this year would be no different.

You might want to call them to confirm but I feel very confident in what I was told and what is listed on the venders list.

RST will be there. I understand they are a little short-handed right now and the pre-orders are a help to them logistically (and to us on shipping).

Also, there will be plenty of vendors and nice things to look at and potentially purchase. I don't have the full list of confirmed vendors, so I've shared what I know. I think opportunity to view and handle guns from the names above, all at the same venue, is pretty exciting. ---Matt
