    Bloomsburg Sports Expo Poster Hunting & Fishing 2018-150

    Meet the BSO Team at the Bloomsburg PA “Early Bird Sports Expo” on Jan. 25th through the 28th.   Thursday through Sunday, our Hunting and Fishing Team will be at the EXPO!  This is one of our favorite times of year because we get to see all of our old friends, meet some new ones and share the memories of our days spent afield and on the water.  In the TECHNO AGE that allows a BLOG like this to be written, it is still a “Sad Substitute” for looking someone in the eye, swapping tales, answering questions, shaking hands and generally getting to know someone.  As communicators in the industry, we long for the engagement and want to see our clients more than once or twice a year!
