Question Atlanta Boat Show JAN 9-13th

Anyone going?? I've never been but going to be in the area those days and thought about checking it out.

I see Miss Geico Racing, Formula and YCOA are going to be there, but that's about all the performance boat related exhibitors on the list.

That's always been a terrible show for performance boats.

For seven bucks a ticket you also get a one year subscription to Motorboat Yachting or a couple others...not the best but not a bad deal either. Interesting to see Gieco set up there.

Will probably be down there Friday. Brad.

I'll be going but it will probably be Sunday. If you are thinking about buying any electronics please check with the guys at the Boaters World booth. ( I work there part time, tell them Jim sent you )
They usually mark them down pretty good. I don't know what the deal will be this year but its been 10-30 percent in the past.
Get a shopping list together for everything else you might need and they will probably cut you a deal.

Depending on how far away you are,might be worth the trip. We are going Friday,we go every year to check the pulse of the industry thru an early show. Last year 2 or 3 Fountains,2 Eliminators,couple of Bajas,a few Formulas,an Adrenalin,and a few more.We use the show to get ideas for Birmingham that opens Jan 30th.

Here is a link I found when searching the show. It gives you a good idea of the area and where to park (I sure there will be plenty of signs).

Hmm.. Hopefully it will be a decent turn out again this year. I'm still uncertain which day I'll be going I wont be in Atlanta till Tuesday late, but defiantly going to get the show sometime during the week. Gives me an excuss to get out for the afternoon.
