78th Annual BIG GAME CONTEST

The Virginia Peninsula Sportsmen's Association (VPSA), in cooperation with the VDGIF, will be hosting its annual BIG GAME CONTEST to recognize those successful Sportsmen who harvested citation size Deer, Bear, and Turkey last season. This year the contest will include a Western Regional, Eastern Regional, and State Competition under one roof. The event is September 23 & 24 at the Southampton County Fairgrounds in Courtland, Virginia. Each day the show will be open from 9-5. Entries must be received by 5PM on Saturday September 23. Cost of the event is $10 for a weekend pass or $7 per day. 12 and under as well as active duty military are free. The VPSA is a group of sportsmen, headquartered in Williamsburg, who serve sportsmen. We founded the BIG GAME CONTEST in 1940 and developed the Virginia Scoring System for Deer and Bear. In the early years we partnered with the Game Department to assist in the Whitetail Deer recovery plan for Virginia. Our members has a holding pen in Newport News which is now called Deer Park. Our contest is the oldest in the country and we have 78 years of records from the Commonwealth of Virginia. Should you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks,
Mike Jones
VPSA President
