Bob Shirley sent a note that he had to cancel the Chicago Fishing Sports Show & Outdoors Expo.
The new show was scheduled for Ho-Chunk Sports and Expo Center in Lynwood Feb. 27-March 1.
``In reality the economy got us.We were unable to sell even a single bulk booth to a boat or R.V. dealer,'' Shirley e-mailed
The veteran of the Chicago outdoor scene promised, ``If the economy turns around later this year I intend to try it again in 2010.''.
