Can I Get Directions to the Boat Show?

With event names that include "Northwest" and "Northeast", this weekend's boat shows are literally all over the place!

Events this weekend include both the Northwest Sportshow and the Great Northeast Boat Show. You would think their directional titles would make it easy to guess where they are, but don't worry - if you can't guess, we'll tell you.

North by Northwest, and What's So Great?
The Northwest Sportshow is in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the Great Northeast Boat Show, which may actually only be good, is in the Hampshire Dome in Milford, NH. If you attend the New Hampshire show on Friday, be glad it's inside - it will give you a chance to get out of the snow!

Other events this weekend might be easier to find by their names... These include the:
The Nashville RV and Boat Super Show, Friday through Sunday in Tennessee
The Greenwich Boat Show, Saturday and Sunday in Connecticut (not in London)
The Sparta Boat Show, Saturday and Sunday in New Jersey (not in Greece)

Meanwhile, waaayy outside the US
If you happen to be in Victoria, Australia, this weekend, be sure to stop by the Gippsland Lakes Boat Show and Muster. We're not sure what a "Muster" is, but we're sure you'll have fun.

SailQuest Coming to Mystic, Connecticut
