DISCLOSURE: My family & I will be attending this year's Nashville Boat and Sportshow free of charge, in exchange for sharing this info with you guys. I was also allotted six tickets to give away to one of my lucky mid south readers. No other compensation will be received.
With the high temps forecast in the single digits for the next couple of days and a light dusting of snow on the ground, it's hard to hold on to the belief that spring is right around the corner. The kids are still on winter break for two more days and I have "gone to my happy place" more times than I care to admit in a public forum, over the last 2 weeks. I am dying to get out of the house for something other than milk, bread and eggs. Luckily for me (and the kids), the 2014 Nashville Boat & Sportshow is almost here.
I am a true southern girl. My Daddy taught me at an early age the pride of baiting your own hook, waiting (patiently or not) for that little tug, the excitement of reeling in the first fish of the day, especially when it was before he even got a bite. I have never forgot the days we'd spend, up at the crack of dawn, just to get a good spot on the lake. Those are the memories I treasure most and I am so lucky to be able to make similar memories with my kids.
The Boat and Sportshow is a yearly event here in Nashville and I have always been interested in checking it out, but just never got around to it. I guess I always thought it was just for people who were seriously interested in purchasing a boat, but I have since found out, it is so much more. The Boat & Sportshow has a little something for everyone, even the little ones and withFREE admission for kids 15 and younger and active duty Military, you really have no excuse not to pile everyone up in the family car and head out to the brand new Music City center on 5th Ave, between January 23-26 and check out the Nashville Boat & Sportshow for yourself.
Here's just a few of the things you have to look forward to, at this year's Nashville Boat & Sportshow... Special appearance by Dora the Explorer and John Godwin from Duck Dynasty, informative seminars on everything from boater's education, children's water safety to fishing to how to find the right financing for your new boat purchase.
There will also be several opportunities to enter to win some really cool prizes, including a houseboat getaway on Dale Hollow Lake, some cool stuff from Bumfloat and you can even WIN a family pack of tickets right now. To win, all you have to do, is tell me your favorite thing to do, around middle Tennessee, during the warmer months... Fishing at Percy Priest, picnic at Centennial park, golf at McCabe golf course or even just a nice drive around Edwin Warner park or Radnor Lake, whatever you and your family like to do, leave a comment below, then claim your entries on the Rafflecopter. I will pick ONE lucky winner on Monday January 20.
