We had talked about doing a Stray Casts day in Indianapolis at the Ford Boat, Sport and Travel Show, but that will wait until next year when we have some experience putting on our podcasts and know how to do it in a travel environment.
That Indianapolis show is one of the last 10-day outdoor shows anywhere. It opens today and runs throuh March 1 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
As for myself, I am about to head off to Springfield, Ill. for the opening day of the Illinois Deer & Turkey Expo at the Prairie Capital Convention Center. It runs through Sunday. I expect something of an odd gathering is the discontent among some hunters.
The Chicago RV & Camping Show opened Wednesday at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont and runs through Sunday.
The Lake Home & Cabin Show opens today and runs through Sunday at the Schaumburg Convention Center.
The Rockford Boat, Vacation & Fishing Show is at the Indoor Sports Center through Sunday.
