REPORT ON WARRENS CRANBERRY FESTIVAL
Now that the Warrens Cranberry Festival is
over and I have some time to write a short entry
on the results of the Festival, as I was also
working this past summer on a Cranberry Farm
near us as part time summer help, and the
Cranberry Harvest is over and my job ended
at the end of the Harvest. This was a family
run business and the Vanatta's at the Remington
Cranberry farm I worked for were really
great people to get to know and work for.
I was treated with respect at all times.
I learned a lot about how Cranberries are
grown and the care and treatment they must
have to produce great cranberries, and how
the farm and equipment is well kept at all
More work goes into a cranberry farm than
one may think. By the way Remington
Cranberry Farm is located on Hwy. 80, about
4 miles South of Babcock, WI. Right on the
County lines of Juneau and Wood Counties.
Visitors to the Farm are always welcome.
NOW as to the Warrens Cranberry Festival.
We set up on Thursday , We opened at 7 AM
on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Weather was
good all three days. We sold a little over 300
Barrel-Lites®, on all three days. Most who
purchased the Barrel-Lite®, were ladies who
bought them a stocking stuffers for Christmas
Gifts, for their husbands, boy friends, uncles,
and sons, and brothers or other hunting friends
they knew. Of course, we did sell to many actual
hunters as well. Overall, we did as good as we
have done at some Gun Shows we have attended
over the years. Naturally one would have liked
to have done better.
Now some may think that 300 Units is not a lot of
sales. Well, this was not a Gun Show, or other
Sport trade show. But it still was a worth while
new adventure. We believe we will be going back
next year and will try to have the same spot as
we had this year as it served our set up perfectly.
IN FACT, we will be looking into some other
similar Festivals for next year.

As Our Motto says: “A Clean Firearm is A Safe Firearm”
Our Barrel-Lite® is used at present by 20 USA State DRN Hunter Safety
Divisions and presented to their Hunter Ed Instructors for a training tool in
their Hunter Safety Classes. We have several Canadian Providences and the
Royal Canadian Mounted Police who uses them in the same method and in their
Firearm Safety instruction course. Plus we have 250 Dealers around the country
who have them in their sport shops. We also have many Hunter Safety Instructors
who purchase them and use them as graduation gifts for their students.
We are always seeking new Dealers, Hunter Safety Instructors and looking for
a few good distributors and sales reps or jobbers who may be interested in
presenting our product to their customers. We offer a very good commission base.
