Toronto Boat Show- who is going?

IMO, the Toronto Boat Show is the best midwinter boatfix available north of the snowline. Who is going? I wouldn't mind meeting some of my fellow inmates for a beer or four.

I had thought about buying tickets for my parents and then helping them plan their retirement spending while I accompanied them to to the show.

I say I'm going every year and then ultimately find something else to do. Maybe this will be the year I make it.

I usually go because I edit the club newsletter and it's expected I produce a story with pictures.

I have to admit, however, that the more I prep our boat for offshore work, the less I see that interests me there, which is natural, I suppose, because it's a Great Lakes show. I find that there is more useful gear in "fisherman's catalogues" because frankly, stuff made for Lake Ontario boats isn't always good enough for offshore.

Basically, I go to see the latest radars and other electronics and to pick up bargains on bits and pieces.
