Lack of awareness and so lower than planned turnout.What happened?
Makes sense. Thanks.Lack of awareness and so lower than planned turnout.
“This wasn’t a decision we wanted to make but felt it best for all concerned. Due to unforseen obstacles, we had to schedule our show earlier than normal which pushed our announcement to fall too late. As such, we have not garnered the response to which we aspire, and we always want our shows to be first-class. We hope that this will give you time to change your plans and attend one of the other excellent pipe shows happening in September and October! “
Is TAPS still doing anything in Raleigh?Before the pandemic, the TAPS pipe show at the Raleigh Fairgrounds had up-sized to a larger venue at the Fairgrounds and it was gaining momentum. I think the volunteer organizers of these shows just find the on-again off-again aspect too time consuming. It's a large commitment of time anyway, and if the whole event is a definite maybe, it's more time than most want to spend.
Venues take time to cultivate, as do lodgings, rental tables, swag and drawings for prizes. To borrow a phrase, next year at the pipe show.
