Going Green and Going Fishing

There is plenty to do on or near the water this weekend no matter where you are in the world.

Across the Pond
Boat shows this weekend include the Beale Park Boat Show, going on Friday through Sunday in West Berkshire, England.

Great White North
Vancouver Island is the host of the 6th Annual Nanaimo Floating Boat & Marine Trade Show in BC from June 4 to June 6. (Pictured. Photo courtesy

Going Green
Make a difference and attend the Dana Point Boat Show and Green Expo (formerly known as simply the "Dana Point Boat Show"). The event is being billed as Southern California’s first "green" boat show. Don't worry, despite the new enviro-focus, the show is not going all-sail - it will still have plenty of powerboats on display. And, if you go Friday, almost everything (except the boats) costs a buck.

Going Fishing (Free Beer?)
The 21st annual Caloosa Catch & Release Fishing Tournament, the oldest tournament series in Southwest Florida and one of the most prestigious tournament venues in America, kicked off today in Ft Myers, Florida. Plenty of reasons to attend, including the website's claim that complimentary LANDSHARK Lager will be provided at all functions.

National Fishing And Boating Week
This Saturday is the first day of National Fishing And Boating Week in the US, a national celebration of fishing and boating coordinated by the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation(RBFF).

    My wife and I have always loved to go to a boat show. Now that our son is old enough to climb aboard we have found going to a boat show to be a great way to pass the entire afternoon.
