South Carolina's Pine Island Club sees new outdoor gear in action
Columbia, South Carolina - The second full day at the 8th Annual Professional Outdoor Media Association (POMA) Business Conference split time between two specific locations — the Columbia-Greystone Embassy Suites for a series of educational seminars and the Pine Island Club for POMA Camp.
POMA Camp's allow media professionals the opportunity to give a few of the latest outdoor products a try in the field. Those products included a variety of hunting sights from Aimpoint, a collection of outdoor grills from Camp Chef, and a handful of Ram Trucks from Dodge.
"If you're going to talk about the products then you have to get your hands dirty," said one Texas writer. "POMA provides the perfect opportunity to do just that."
Getting dirty meant a number of different things yesterday. Dodge allowed a few lucky individuals to take the trucks out for a test run. Camp Chef held what has become their annual POMA Camp Cook Off. And at the Buck Knives setup, visitors were invited to try out their new fillet knives on selection of summer sausages.
Carved into eighths (lengthwise), you cut down the edge, find the skin and slice the length of the cut. And what happens to all that filleted sausage?
"In addition to the sausage, we also brought along some cheese and crackers," said Buck President C.J. Buck. "A snack for everyone who gives our knives a try. Nothing goes to waste."
