Announcing "The Blue Wild" -- Expo 2010!!!

Announcing The Blue Wild Expo 2010 -- on June 5 and 6! That's the first weekend in June at the Ft. Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. It's our fourth year, and we've outgrown our previous venue.

As most of you know, we have plenty of action for spearos, whether you're a scuba diver or freediver, whether you are interested in underwater photography or videography, whether you love marine artwork or want to learn more about blackouts, shark management, or dive history....we have something for everyone, including a Film Festival!

Speakers this year: Stan Waterman (famous producer/underwater cinematographer), Dr. Jose Castro (world renowned shark scientist from Mote Marine Labs), Rob Torelli (spearo and award winning videographer who has filmed all kinds of sharks, whales, etc, for major networks), Pipin Ferreras, Manny Puig, Ron Mullins, Art Pinder, Dan MacMahon, Kirk Krack, Dimitris Kollias , and lots more. We also have many Exhibitors (many who will give Presentations/Product Demos) including the Riffe's, Mark Laboccetta, Kevin Bruington, Daryl Wong, Ray Powell, Guy Skinner, Roger Yazbeck, and many more. The Expo also features interesting hands-on Workshops and a huge Raffle at the end of each day with over $30K of prizes!

Don't miss the Friday Evening Kick Off Party at the Marriott Courtyard on Ft. Lauderdale Beach -- on the sundeck, right on the beach, drinks, music, and lots of fun. The nightlife in Ft. Lauderdale Beach is HOT!

For out-of-towners (and in-towners who want to party), our sponsoring hotel, the Marriott Courtyard on Ft. Lauderdale Beach is offering an amazing $89/room rate (on the beach). We recommend that you take a taxi from the Ft. Lauderdale airport if you are flying in, to avoid parking. We will have a shuttle running continuously to the Convention Center which is 2 miles away. The previous weekend is Memorial Day. If you want to make a week out of it, that special rate still applies if you are attending the Expo. Space is limited, so reserve early.

You can dive right off the beach during the day and party at the clubs and restaurants at night. But most of all, you won't want to miss this Expo! For hotel and other info, and to register in advance, go to this website.... http://www.thebluewild.com/.

Re: Announcing "The Blue Wild" -- Expo 2010!!!

Sheri… I can’t wait for Expo, but I must admit I may be looking forward to the “Kickoff Party” the most! Getting to talk fish, seeing old friends, and enjoying a few beers! And the best thing this year… I don’t have to be the bartender. Last year making all of those margaritas and pina coladas was rough and I spilt the first batch…opps… but hey it turned out fantastic, cause it was one “heck” of a party!

But this year… we got real bartenders, the beach, more time to party, and an atmosphere that will be unsurpassed. This is going to be the biggest, baddest, dive party of all-time!

I got my hotel room and I’m ready to party!

Don't miss this...I don't know of anyone who's ever attended a Blue Wild that regretted going. A w/e of spearfishing gear, workshops, videos, speakers, new friends, raffels, prizes, etc for a few bucks...hard to beat! We are lucky to have this and all proceeds go to charity! Thanks Sheri!

I have to agree with Dan. I have been to every Blue Wild and had a great time.

Thanks, guys, glad you're coming again. Well, Dan, you and your better-half BETTER come back. I'm counting on you to calm me down, and speak, and help me clean up....once again.

We'll be coming again, of course!

If you need an extra hand or volunteer, just say the word! I'd love to be a part of such an amazing event.

Re: Announcing "The Blue Wild" -- Expo 2010!!!

Petra, thanks! I will take you up on that. I can always use pretty ladies to register the guys...or sell 'em lots of raffle tickets.

Fish Tracks, see you there. That is exactly what makes the Expo good, I think. Besides the exhibitors and speakers, everyone just gets to hang out and talk and make new friends. It creates a great atmosphere when you get a bunch of passionate spearos together.
