Annapolis Boat Show

I am new to the Broad, but have read it for many months before signing on. Any suggestions for obtaining two free ticket two day tickets to the October Annapolis Boat Show. Please PM me. Thanks in advance.

Only way is if a broker/dealer thinks you are serious enough to give you tickets.

Go the first day and pay the higher fee. It gets pretty full the other days so be sure to be there before the gate opens and plan the attack. It's a fun show and it's nice to just walk out the gate and go to a local tavern for lunch and come back. After lunch you can expect mobs of people.

I agree with pblais

Buy your ticket...if you can get in before the general public....

I have a ball cap that says "I survived the 2005 Boat Show".

I bought it at a thrift store.

Annapolis is a horrid place to park.....your best bet will be to take the shuttles that run in......I think from Navy-Marine Corp Stadium.

While you are there, cross the Spa Creek Bridge and enter another county

"The Maritime Republic of Eastport"

Personally, I find boat shows BORING...what with all the posers, wannabees and tire kickers.....along with children in strollers and people with hard shoes.

Wear your birkenstocks! With the number of times you will take off your shoes it is worth it.

I will be up there for thursday, I recommend wearing a backpack that you can carry water in and having room to pack all those little cool things you cannot live without that you then wonder where the heck you are going to put them
