Vegas, baby, w/ da judge


I’m off to Las Vegas so early tomorrow morning I want to weep. But I’m looking forward to being one of the BWI writer/judges for the Marine Aftermarket Accessories Trade Show (MAATS) Innovation Awards. There were sixty products entered,  and while I can’t reveal names, I can tell you that lots of them are electronical, and even some of those I’d never heard of before I got the judging packets. Here’s the exhibitor list; and here’s some info on the big ICAST fishing show going on in an adjoining hall. If you see something I should be checking out at either venue, speak up! I’ll try to post from Vegas, but no guarantees. The last, and only other time, I visited was in 1969, and I saw very little besides the holding cell of the city jail (long story). I’d rather be a judge.

Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.
