Looking forward to it - this is far the best show for the spearfishing crowd. Thanks again to Sheri and her crew for putting it together. The fact that the proceeds go to charity is pretty cool too.

Sheri,

Enjoyed meeting you at the Miami Boat Show this year. It is our first time exhibiting at the Blue Wild, but I'm excited. . . even "blew off" a 2 week Keys dive vacation, to be sure I could be there! Really looking forward to it.

Rick Dean

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

Hi All,
I am not sure if it has already been mentioned but entrance to the Port, and then to the Convention Centre may require a picture ID.

I have never been there myself but I had a customer in the shop recently saying that a lot of visitors forget about the ID requirement and then cannot gain access :>(

Perhaps Sheri has been given a "by" on this requirement? Possibly so?

Look forward to seeing everyone at the Expo!

Mike.

Rick, wow, you blew off a 2 week vacation to the Keys?!? Well, glad you're joining us, and I promise....this will be fun!

Mike, good point. The Broward County Convention Center has very strict security because it's next to Port Everglades. You must have an ID to get in...recommend either drivers license or passport.

See y'all there!

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

So excited to be attending this, although as many of you know, it may bring a few tears. For those that don't know (like me up until February), in the first year after someone's death, you spend a lot of time realizing it's "the first time I've done X since," filling in the blank with whatever you are doing. Jeff and I always enjoyed attending spearfishing events together. For me this will be the first time I've been with the spearfishing community since I lost him. That, in addition to knowing he would love to be there with all of us, will make the weekend difficult. However, it looks to be a fantastic showing & I will so enjoy seeing all of you. Thanks, Sheri, for all you do, & for thinking of me & Jeff. I knew how big and important he was to me, but I never felt we were that significant to very many others. It's nice to feel special.

Wasn't sure if I could make it or not. Looks like I can. YEA!!!! Just made my hotel reservation but will have to buy my tickets at the door.

I can't wait to put faces to avatars. Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.
