First things first. It's almost Thanksgiving. But as soon as that holiday is wrapped, I will be gearing up not for Black Friday but to head west to Seattle for the 45th annual Pacific Marine Expo.
It's all happening from Tuesday through Thursday, Nov. 27-29, at Seattle's Century Link Field.
My team and I always strive to bring something extra to the expo, and this year is no exception.
As usual, we will be covering the show floor gathering stories for the National Fisherman Show Daily. So if you see us coming at you with a camera, don't hide!
We'll be holding our second annual Boatyard Day on Wednesday, which includes a keynote address from Jensen Maritime President Johan Sperling and the presentation of our Boats & Gear awards.
On Thursday don't miss your chance to have Breakfast with the Editors and attend the Profitable Harvest session from 8 a.m. to noon on Thursday. Registration is limited, so sign up now.
Right after Profitable Harvest, we'll jump down to the Keynote Area to watch you compete for the annual Fisherman of the Year contest.
Every day of the show offers book signings from some of your favorite maritime authors, including Joe Upton and Spike Walker; happy hour in the Beer Garden, sponsored by ZF; a stellar (and free!) conference program, including a Tuesday morning keynote address and Q&A session with Sam Rauch, NMFS director.
In the meantime, come by booth #1021 to check in with the NF crew.
See you at the show!
