Ohio Decoy Show 2001
March 16-17, 2011
Donna's Albums > Ohio Decoy Show 2001
Thanks to Jon Deeter & Ken Cole the Ohio decoy show is becoming one of the better shows in the Midwest featuring room-to-room trading, Thursday seminars, vintage decoy competitions and display with poolside auctions on Friday and Saturday. Look for more changes and upgrades as they lead the way to separate from the contemporary decoy show that has been held at the same location and weekend as the vintage decoy show.
